    Well, it is what the title says. コロナウイルス is forcing people to stay home in Japan and the japs have a nice philosophy of spreading hope in times of despair, so they went there and performed anyway and are being nice and posting the gigs that got cancelled online for all to see, including us, poor gaijin. No live audience, no staff, etc. These are the ones I've seen so far: Let's make this collaborative so do share other links here if you know of any. I'll keep updating this list. Please keep this thread related only to specific gigs arranged for the sake of the pandemic. It doesn't matter if a band posts their entire videography online. Previous performances won't count, ok? If it has an audience, just don't post it. Also, no talk sessions, offshots or whatever else that isn't music-related. And bear in mind most of these gigs will be avaliable for a limited time only, so hurry up and watch or download the ones you're interested in watching ASAP.

    Kyo's girlfriend?

    Yeah, this is the one famous pic. Although it's taken inside a store kyo still looks very surprised. The bangyas at tanuki mainly hated on his girl for being a kuso gaijin uwu

    No, I'm not a fan of Misc. nor Retsu's individual attitude, but I feel like many here are just plain mean/annoying. Like, why don't you just ignore/let go of them if you're gonna be negative about everything they do. DIMLIM is not just Retsu, so I feel bad for Sho and Hiroshi. Also things are changing daily because of the Corona shit going on, so you can't blame any artist for saying "it won't be cancelled/postponed" 2 days prior cancelling/postponing the live after all. It happens all the time everywhere. I live in Tokyo and I also have tickets for lives that have been postponed/cancelled 2 days prior, while the bands tried not to disappoint the fans at first. Lives/tours in Europe (from Japanese artists) have been postponed/cancelled too. It may have been decided by the venue or government, so the bands can't even do anything about it. Japanese bands have the tendency to give up on their band too easily imo, so I do respect them for the "we keep trying and don't care about the haters" attitude. He's not a criminal or something.

    His profile on their official home page needed some urgent updating so I thought I'd help out a little I seriously couldn't get past the first 8 seconds on retsu's lets's Q&A video because I was already laughing so hard lmao. Never thought I'd see the day when dimlim becomes such a joke... Someone pls save Sho and Hiroshi from this mess, they don't deserve this

    It's so sad but Dimlim is dying Honestly I think Ryuya left the band bc he had no patience for Lestu crazy ass ideas Even when I like MISC. (3/5 for me, not horrible, but not wonderful, epecially for some song that man they're forgetable) Rijin and KIDOAIRAKU was the direction, maybe with a touch of Out of the darkness and What's Up? and boom great fucking band, I don't give a shit about the visuals at this point. But NOOO Letsu doesn't want a bassit and prefer to do random world venues, weird ass interviews and do public his ego and middle age crisis, even when he is at his 20

    DIMLIM new album, "MISC." release

    That's what every JP vkei fan sees when filthy gaijin ask them on Twitter about a random Gesshoku flyer from 1993. So I won't diss him. He made an effort even though he didn't have to. I can appreciate that.

    The Make-It-Pop Thread

    MAKE IT POP I haven't seen any kind of general pop thread in the global music sub-forum and that just will not do! 2020 is shaping up to be an amazing year for pop music and there must be a thread to discuss everything pop-related! I'm going start by sharing some upcoming releases I'm looking forward to and then sharing some artists I've enjoyed since last year. Upcoming Releases Rina Sawayama Sawayama (04.17.2020) -Rina's been making some waves in the indie pop scene. She seemingly just came out of nowhere but managed to make an impression on people with her self-released EP "Rina" with hits like "Cyber Stockholm Syndrome" and "Ordinary Superstar". Her sound is very reminiscent of 90's pop/r&b but she finds ways to make it sound fresh and interesting. She's got a new album coming out in April of this year titled "Sawayama". Samples Purity Ring Womb (04.03.2020) -Purity Ring is a Canadian electronic pop duo drawing from sub-genres like glitch-pop and synth-pop. While they can sound bright and poppy, their sound is more strongly defined by dark and ominous undertones both lyrically and musically. They're probably most known for their tracks "Fineshrine" and "Obedear". They'll be releasing a new album titled "Womb" in the beginning of April and it's sounding like it'll be a more lighter listen. Samples Recent Favorites Grimes Miss Anthropocene (02.21.2020) -I'm sure Grimes doesn't need an introduction. She's known for her unique sound of ethereal and pop music and made hits such as "Genesis" and "Kill V. Maim". Her album "Miss Anthropocene" came out earlier last month and, honestly, it's been one of my favorite releases in 2020 so far. Certainly not the most amazing album and, arguably a bit half baked, but there are some solid tracks on the album and I've been revisiting it often. Samples Charli XCX Charli (09.13.2019) -Charli XCX went to the top of my favorite artists in 2019 when I listened to her latest album "Charli". Her sound was so different than a lot of other pop artists I had heard. While she certainly has songs with tons of pop appeal featuring bright dance-y music and catchy lyrics, she also brings with that a blend of future pop and experimental sounds. The production on her latest record is absolutely amazing and I was hooked from the first track onward. Although I'm a fan of her latest sound, she's probably most known for songs like "Boys" and "Vroom Vroom" (which, I absolutely love both). Samples Sophie Oil Of Every Pearl's Un-Insides (06.15.2018) -If Charli XCX's recent output is futuristic, then Sophie's music is so far ahead in the pop genre that by the time it's considered a classic the human race will have evolved into a higher physical state (fun fact, Sophie actually produced Charli XCX's EP "Vroom Vroom". ). All jokes aside, this album is quite simply something else. It has a few more traditional poppy moments but the other 90% hits you with leftfield experimental sounds intermixed with soundscapes and industrial bass music. The production on this record is so good though and there were so many times I kept asking, "what the hell was that sound? How did she do that?". It's certainly not for everyone, but for those looking for a more expanded take on pop music, so much as to the point of almost being unrecognizable, I highly encourage you to take a jump. Samples

    DADAROMA will disband

    found this on FB: He says that their company wanted them to say it's a hiatus, but he doesn't want to lie to their fans and make them wait for a comeback, since there won't be any comeback. They're just disbanding Yoshiatsu also says they'll all comeback, maybe together, maybe not, he still doesn't know, but for sure Yoshiatsu will continue to sing. So let's wait for their comeback even if it's in separate bands...

    I am probably the last person on planet earth who has listened to MISC. by DIMLIM but i finally did it. And DAMN what a positive surprise!! When it was released i only listened to the samples on amazon and had very low expactations because of all the negativity around it and to be honest the 30sec samples all sounded super samy which got me extremely worried. But now that i have listened to its entirety i gotta say i LOVE the album!!! There's not one single song i dislike and Sho's voice is so powerful that i don't even miss his harsh cuz he delivers so much variety within his clean vocals its just amazing in every single way. HUGE THUMBS UP! (listened to the album 3 times for get some thoughts together)

    lynch. - ULTIMA [Discussion Thread]

    Somehow Lynch. was able to keep my interest in those string of Albums that dropped back to back. Once AVANTGARDE came about, it was VERY clear that they were running on fumes but were starting to break out their shell a bit. BLOOD THIRSTY, and SINNERS were more great steps in the right direction even with the absence of AK. That momentum went out the window when AK came back. XIII was a mess. It was worse than that one album ppl always killed me for hating...what was it? OH "I BELIEVE IN MID." Easily one of the biggest let downs of 2018. ULTIMA is what XIII should've been. This album is LYNCH showing in length that they're evolving while still staying true to their sound. This shit is a breath of fresh air, dawg. Maybe they realized how they let a nigga down, and they channeled that energy and really crafted something amazing. The energy in this album feels like a huge fuck you to me and anyone else who doubted them. They had something to prove here. Like dawg, why do I wanna do dirty things to my woman...but dance at the same time while listening to EROS? Why do I feel like the band sat through a couple of the GazettE's recording sessions and used that influence to create the BANGER that's MACHINE? Who told them to make DEVIL better by making IDOL? WHO?!!! What the fuck is Reo and Yusuke smoking? Did AK give them the same weed he got caught with? The fuck is up with the nasty riffage in these songs? Why do wanna cry after listening to ZINNIA? I have so many questions after listening to this album. This shit SLAPS. What the hell man. Even XERO, which i killed sounds good with the rest of the album. Man 20/10. Fuck the proper rankings. Unless DECAYS or KEEL is coming back, I aint tryna come back on here and talk about J-rock for the rest of 2020 with yall. This album sealed the deal. Corona virus can take its time. The endless replays this masterpiece will get shall hold me over. Have y'all seen someone so happy with a release that they quit a forum over it? No. Congrats, I just did it. And you just saw it. Bye. I love you all and ill see you in 2021.

    lynch. - ULTIMA [Discussion Thread]

    did you make the five star rating text just for me!!! anyway to drop the stan mask for a second my favorites are EROS, ALLERGIE, IN THIS ERA, ULTIMA, IDOL & ZINNIA. IN THIS ERA has been on repeat for a few hours, it's very melancholy but pleasant to me. tbh one problem i have was that ALLERGIE completely mopped the floor with any other heavy songs on the album. like i'm sure MACHINE is very fun live, but when listening to this as an album experience, there's not really any coming back after ALLERGIE. also i understand the vibe they were trying to achieve with EUREKA but i feel like PHOENIX already did it better... also shameless plug but i translated the lyrics.

    Unfortunately, Shinpei hasn’t officially joined the boys. But he did say that he genuinely loves the band and that he does think of himself as a member. I know that NEVERLAND feel the same way. That’s why they have started coordinating outfits and including him in promo. He will continue to support them for the foreseeable future.
