Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 179 - Oh! Face

Trust us, you don't want to see ours. It's a cross between the face you make when you smell cookies and when you have an entire package of Sweet Tarts in your mouth; that is to say, not pretty.


179 - Oh! Face
Girls' Generation - Oh! | Superfly - Force

Erin sits out the episode this week because she's on a super-classy business outing, but that doesn't stop us from reviewing the latest Japanese remake by Korean supergroup Girls' Generation! We also spend time with reviewing "Force," the hit album by Superfly. That's right, two releases by artists who have garnered a consistently mixed reception on the show. What will we think of them this time? There's only one way to find out.

Gaijin Kanpai Ep. 145 - "Rainy Day Music"

I didn't even realize when we titled this episode that the album cover is an umbrella. That crazy Ayaka and her subliminal messages...

AYAKA - The beginning

Oh! Did you know this week marks GK's 3rd Year Anniversary?! HURRAY FOR US!!!


Aforementioned Ayaka returns from hiatus with a much-anticipated album, but is it everyone's cup of tea? Also, Korean Rock Band CNBlue, who started in Japan and then came back after officially debuting in Korea, give us their first #1 Oricon single to review. Finally a rock band from Korea who's not FTisland. I fear they're just as sucky though...


Next week, because of my (LoKi) family coming to visit, we will not be doing a uStream. In fact, we won't even be doing News and Charts because we'll be recoding hella early. Hopefully you'll download and listen, because we may have a little surprise to announce  ^_^


Until then, notes were taken!
