A Daily Dose of Music: Bump of Chicken


Never not amazing
Apr 28
// Hiroko Yamamura
Man, everything Bump of Chicken touches is like pure gold. The Chiba rockers have been on an absolute tear since their debut in 1994, and really have been getting progressively better. Their newest single Colony is just as epic. Sweet animation and weird alien landscapes help layout a lovely new video. Unique vocals, lush guitars and a killer hook help round out a memorable new rock ballad.

Another visual treat
Mar 06
// Hiroko Yamamura
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!
