A Daily Dose of Music: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Our favorite Harajuku girl, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is back with a great new single, Mondai Girl. It's easily the best release she's had all year, keeping fresh and modern. The video is a pretty hilarious parody of herself, showing that even after a stressful year, she hasn't lost her lighthearted approach. Very excited to hear the rest of the new stuff, and I love the visuals!

If you've been hoping for a bit of variety from tween sensation ClariS, it looks like your prayers might be answered. It looks as though Alice has departed, and Karen has stepped up to the plate. It may actually be a step in...

A Daily Dose of Music: Ayumi Hamasaki
