So this gear came in from CDJapan a day or two ago.

Firstly, a scoresheet! Keyboard score *AND* bass tabs. I’m gonna be busy for a while πŸ˜€

Next, Fullmetal Alchemist OP Album – again by YUI. Awesome album, came with a whole bunch of stickers too! I couldn’t get the limited edition with the DVD though.. 😦

Still, I got the first print, so can’t complain. Definitely an awesome single – get it. Now.

Additionally, on top – Boku wa mada Nanimo Shiranai [Album] by Ishikawa Chiaki. It’s areally nice album, lots of Ballad-type stuff that she does fantastically – Very chilling voice in some songs though, but the vocals are clear, and the instrumentals are amazing in some tracks. (My speakers have been getting a hell of a workout)

Last but not Least:

Check This Out!! by Jabberloop – Awesome jazz group, It’s abit fast for my liking, but definitely a nice club Jazz album to listen to.

Another Side of Agenda by Re-TrickΒ  – Jazz trio, more slow jazz and acid Jazz – The Live CD, too. Awesome jazz trio containing my favourite instruments – Bass guitar and Piano.

Definitely worth checking out – I’ll upload some tracks at some stage for you guys to listen to.

Anyway, back to study.

Tommy Heavenly6 – Wait till I can dream May 16, 2009

So, Once again thanks to Jpopsuki, I find myself once again downloading Jpop, and I came across this:

I must say I really do like her quite abit. She’s like a Japanese Avril Lavigne, but better. With happier songs, and less emo overtones. And they’re definitely not generic either.

Anyone who’s into J-rock or J-pop should definitely get their hands on the album. It’s fun, bouncy, and pretty rockin’ without being blow-your-ears-out heavy.

The album is called “Gothic Melting Ice Cream’s Darkness ‘Nightmare'”… which is already pretty awesome sounding. (Even if it makes you go “uh… what?”) There’s a few familiar tunes in the album as well, such as PAPERMOON and Pray – Soul Eater and Gintama opening themes.

As it turns out she is quite popular too, so judging by that she can’t be bad, right? Anyhow, check it out.

Perfume – Love the World May 5, 2009

So, I picked up this album off Jpopsuki a few days ago – I did have my reservations on it being abit more of the same, but pleasantly suprised it was much more upbeat than the previous albums, abit faster and much more variety in the instrumentation. (Even if it is through the same, electro-synth)

Overall, it’s a nice song. Kinda uplifting, too. And fun to sing to… so many harmonies you can do with it >_<
It does have an air of “enjoy life” to it, and is very VERY upbeat. The music video has some really trippy bits, too. With the hair and everything.

The song opens similarly to Perfect Star, Perfect Style – very light, then gets abit more beaty. Definitely a reccomended if you like any sort of electronica, or are a fan of Jpop. (It’s not stupidly fast, too!)

Anyhow, enjoy! Reijin out.

 

Favourite things March 29, 2009

So, I’m half intent to sing a song tonight. That and I’ve been up for about 8 hours playing Valkyria Chronicles. Sweet lord, it’s an awesome game.

Rin evidently thinks this is awesome. You should too.

Rin evidently thinks this is awesome. You should too.

That and I’ve somehow warped “Favourite things” into my own little gamer edition…

Rockband, Team Fortress and Taiko Tatsujin,

Warcraft Expansions, photographing figures,

My pc parts overclocked before spring..

These are a few of my favourite things.

Remind me not to stay up ’till 5 in the morning next time. My creative “flair” usually turns out to be creative failure around now. πŸ˜› On that note, I don’t play Taiko Tatsujin (Or is it Taiko no tatsujin) as much as I’d like to. Only like… once when I can get my hands on my DS. Because my brother always takes it. The little crap.

That aside, perhaps I’ll finish that song one day, to be some kind of geeky gamer/otaku anthem, who knows. For now, I’ll just go back to enjoying playing Valkyria and practicing Cammy’s Ultra combo.

Reijin out.

Well, for abit of music today…

Pendulum – The Other Side

Pendulum do drum&bass. Their recent album, In Silico has focused on more natural sounds, then mixing them in the synthetic techno style they do oh so very well. The results? Songs like this. The music video is very cool, and you can kinda make out the original guitar and bass. Nonetheless a very cool group. Go out and grab the album. Do it. Now.

The Lyrics are sort of dark, and the song overall has a nice, fast bass beat to it. Pretty much summarises the whole drum and beat thing.

Anyhow, hope you enjoy it. Reijin out.
