Gaijin Kanpai Ep.125 - "Something About Rain"

"In the Rain"? "Purple Rain"? "Rain Rain Go Away"? No, that's not it...

While we try to remember the name of LoKi's AA pick for the week, take a listen to this here GK episode! We're back this week with some qualid tunes, yo. You may be surprised by what you hear about this week's albums. The only way to find out, of course, is to listen.

125 - Something About Rain
Uplift Spice - Paradigm Shift

iTunes/M4A] | [MP3]
 

Unfortunately we are still not uStreaming for awhile, as LoKi is still getting situated in his new environs. In the meantime, feel free to interact with us through twitter, our Facebook page, or by sending e-mail to us. We'd love to hear from you! It's lonely here without you guys. Cold, dark, and lonely. (..."A Driving Rain in Darkness"? No, that wasn't it either...)

As always, if you like what you hear, do tell your friends and rate us on iTunes! Our egos could always use another boost, you know? Also, the GLOBE album we were going to review is just a remix album so we're reluctantly switching to the insanely popular new release from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, "Moshimoshi Harajuku".

Time for the Notes!
