  1. question for translators - how do y'all translate 揺られ? it's the weirdest 'word' in that the concept is easy enough to grasp but idk what even english word usually gets across the meaning without sounding kitschy / out of place af

      i would probably translate it as 'swayed/wavered' or even 'swaying/wavering', but the meaning can change depending on context. sometimes if there's no fitting word for it i would try to convey it in a different way without losing too much of the original meaning. hope that helps...?

  2. ミスイ's バカ is legit the first & only 100% good thing that's happened in my life since covid

    柳 was one of the first vocalists i heard back in 2010 when i was getting into the scene - it's like both no time passed & you can hear the 6 years of improvement

      this post made me check out the mv and even tho i never really listened to much monolith back in the day this band definitely gives me vibes of back then so i went straight to cdj and bought the new single LOL thank you

      do you have a few releases you would recommend right off the bat? im not sure how lengthy their discog is but if it is id probably prefer just a couple albums and singles atm

    a lot of comparisons of this album to 脈拍 but am i the only person who loves that album but struggles to understand the raison d'être of this one? i mean, why did this album need to exist? the B-sides between 脈拍 & now make a better album, no? tho i'm definitely amused by wondering how the conversation w/ 葉月 went like hey can you just go bbbrrrrrrrrrr into a mic for us, we'll turn it into a song don't worry

    bc if there's one thing vkei bands are known for it's being very polite & light-hearted always lmao you're probably right tho

    i know literally nothing about this band yet would bet good money this is just a joke/stunt & probably one specifically targeted @ rands at that
  6. Gianizm REKT (could also be like React but rekt is more fun) (this coming to you from the same band who published The Dool)

    this album's WEIRD but i'd rather have a few more strange ones like this than a hundred alright albums that do just fine. not sure why the 'are they vkei or aren't they' debate is so lively when the music sounds more vkei than 鵬翼 & their looks are more vkei than 達郎's in 心のない町's PV. between this & DEZERT i'd say rather than declaring individual bands to have fallen off the vkei wagon we're seeing the early phases of another branch of this scene, like what we english-speakers call oshare/nagoya/angura/art kei. indie kei? i think it could be a thing & would love to see more of it tbh retsu could put out a full album of SEs & i'd enjoy it - maybe that's bc i don't listen to enough actual IDM or Flying Lotus et al but either way it pauses & carries the mood of Misc. & CHE DO A RA both nicely; this is a hill i'll absolutely die on. 7/10 imho is the perfect rating for this album to end up with - every album dimlim puts out seems like a different band's debut & i hope they stay around to make 10+ more
  8. Naitomea has new artist photos!! using the name of the band!!

    do you mind if i try to defend Retsu's guitar? i LOVE gretsch, they're my fav aside from fender, but compared to fender are so uncommon to see in vkei - yutori from pentagon plays deusenbergs which are pretty similar but that's usually the closest i've seen i have no idea if this track was actually recorded on that guitar or not but the solo makes me think it was - their pickups are like this middle ground between the crisp bubbliness of fenders' & 'heavier' humbuckers but without that watery mid-boosted PRS sound. it's pretty muddy & unclear & regardless of all that, totally personal taste but i like the contrast of small dude / tight unaccessorized clothes w/ the giant-ass guady guitar that'd be no one's first association w/ a darker styled band. + the white guitar / black clothes makes that contrast seem more purposeful. sorry for the huge answer but i love dumb things like this - bands that fuck w/ what's expected in smaller ways that almost seem accidental
  10. not always this obv but check out these two songs by definitely different bands which are definitely written by different people youtube.com/watch?v=ltiqDDlqDYA youtube.com/watch?v=x9PJZlUJtyQ
  11. hey shit is this new naitomea news on their twitter for the first time since their hiatus?

  12. i could def be wrong on this but i think they just hosted a few of their videos? like they did for ログ & Londboy before they became 零[hz] - but afaik none of those three were listed as BP's bands beyond just showing up on their channel
  13. my band put up a PV today - we're something like shoegaze/trip-hop. Vkei's basically 90% of my musical 'inspiration' tho so hopefully i manage to let that come across.
     



    Actually this song probably makes it pretty clear how much of an influence baroque's Planetary Secret became to how i write.

    on twitter they uploaded like fifty pictures of him smiling & interacting w/ the audience at the BiS/BiSH LSN lives back when that happened, so i'd guess probably not lol

    came here to see if i was the only one who thought this - i wonder if the animators were the same group
