Suits are great mates.

New Keyakizaka song is... not good. Sounds very generic, and I feel it could have been released by any of the 48 groups. I need Keyakizaka to deliver the drama. A waste of a neat concept with the suits too.

I don't like it as much as Silent Majority, Futari Saison and Fukyouwaon but still dig it a lot. Better than Sekai ni wa Ai Shika Nai for instance (which is still cool) if we're limiting ourselves to the singles.
I'm happy they have a dancey tune like that actually, cause it's a bit unusual for them (though you can find a lot of more traditional idol tracks as their b-sides/on the album.)
I guess their singles tend to have an epic/dramatic/serious feel (it's not the right word but you get what I mean), but it doesn't mean they will always stick to that.

Only disappointing thing is that they're not wearing the suits for Keyakitte Kakenai :'(

Guess it's the uniform the b-side

Speaking of which, here it is (radio rip)

More in line with what you'd expect maybe. I find the chorus a bit weak, rest of the song is cool though. I'm sure it'll grow on me.

The thing about Namie...

Her older music is SO dated. Most of it is unlistenable.
She gets great after "Wishing on the same star"
She loves using english in her songs but she's so bad at it...
Her highs are VERY high, like, her signature songs are all awesome
Her live shows are look so low-budget

She's a legend, but I just can't stan her.

The only thing slightly agreeable about this post is her bad English.

I still jam to her stuff from the 90's, and she had some great songs in her R&B era (even if they don't get any play these days).

And wtf makes her lives so low-budget? Because she doesn't engage in theatrics and pyrotechnics? I'll take her straight performances any day.

Pretty good picks for the 2018 edition of the Space Shower Retsuden tour

They often choose artists that just became major/get signed soon after, always a good opportunity to discover the current hot acts. Ivy to Fraudulent Game are already signed with Victor and will release their debut album in December. Saucy Dog might be the next in line (with A-Sketch maybe).
Really got into Ivy to Fraudulent Game lately.

lol you don't need smoke and mirrors when her performances are so captivating. Namie's never had extravagant stages or lighting (although, she has had some) because that's not what she's about.

The "basic" outfits are for comfort more than anything when she's dancing 24/7. I hate to sound so defensive and stan-like but she's the main event at her concerts, not the stages and lighting. it's not a Perfume concert.

Namie concerts are definitely weaker generally, but they are also jam packed with songs and dancing. PLAY and Best Fictionís live shows were probably her most show-y concerts, but even those are very song-focused. Itís very much like, ďyou came to see me sing, so here I am,Ē which has an interesting sense of purity?

The downside is that those live recordings donít always end up great. If Namie gets tired, there isnít a backing track to pick up lines and there are plenty of shows where she clearly is pushing herself too far. Best Fiction had a little of that as did Live Style 2011 iirc.

Also RIP live bands

Yeah I can see that, but all the artists are close friends with the members, dunno if the three bands you mentioned fit the bill (I could be wrong of course)

Yah, still listening to that collab with Yonezu Kenshi almost everyday.
Hopefully an album is around the corner. Gotta take advantage of that great year for her.

Speaking of Yonezu Kenshi, one of the guests for his upcoming album has been revealed.
Actress/model Ikeda Elaiza will be on the track "fogbound". She has a pretty nice voice actually. 1 other guest remains unknown.

Hell yeah, one of us.

4 new hiragana members appeared on Keyakitte Kakenai yesterday, they were all pretty funny, especially Tomita who did a rap for Sawabe lol
Didn't care much for the hiragana team but they actually have some potential. Wish they got more TV time. Maybe that'll happen now that they have more members.
I wouldn't be surprised if Kageyama and Kyoko become the first ones to join the main line-up, whenever that happens, they're the 2 standouts.

Excellent album with a cool theme (modern Noah's Ark, here to save you from the information flood).
Kinda dark overall but still has 1 or 2 catchy tunes (that don't break the mood at all imo)
