Gaijin Kanpai Ep.158 - "You Love My Diction"

And that's all you love about me. You're quite shallow.


158 - You Love My Diction
MEG - La Japonaise | S/mileage - Dot Bikini


One of these days we'll finally figure out Erin's audio and GK will sound as good as it did last week. Until then, enjoy over-modulated Erin. Sorry about that. All the more reason to join the uStream, amiright? 


So this week we're reviewing a weird one from MEG. It's an Anime (ah-knee-may) song cover album, but with the help of such producers as Yasutaka Nakata. Remember when I said Nakata saves all his good stuff for Perfume? There's also the latest offering from S/mileage. Ya...we're a real tour de force this week. Good news is that the B-Side is a cover of a Country Musume song (this one), which brings a small smile to my face :)


Also, thanks again to everyone who commented on Kamen Kanpai. It will be making its return in the near future.


Until then....MANY NOTES!!
