Gaijin Kanpai Ep.161 - "The Defenestration of LoKi"

Here’s your GRE word for the day: Defenestration. See if you can figure out what it means before the B-Roll comes around.


161 - The Defenestration of LoKi
FTISLAND - 20 [twenty] | GLAY - Bible


Hope you like rants about Sowelu and Erin’s marriage to GLAY because that’s what you get with this episode! Our fearsome duo review the legend who are oh so near and dear to their hearts as well as a Korean band that have a lot in common with The Silence from Doctor Who. You don’t get that reference? Too bad, I’m not explaining it. You’re only 6 seasons and a handful of specials behind! Don’t make that face at me!

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!!
