This week's episode is brought to you by copious amounts of alcohol and the dirty, dirty minds of LoKi and Erin! Take a tangential journey through the J-music scene that stretches from Nostalgia by GARNET CROW all the way to SPYAIR's latest album. There are plenty of twists, turns, surprises, and even a B-roll so you better listen to the entire thing, goddamnit!

MOUTHFUL-O-NOTES!

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

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

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!!
