A year after she released her double albums W Face ~Outside~ and ~Inside, it looks like Ms. Kumi Koda will be hitting another double whammy by releasing two new studio albums! Yup, J-Pop bells are ringing y'all! The singer released her previous studio album's on the same day last year—March 2, 2017 through Rhythm Zone. The albums didn't… Continue reading Kumi Koda will be releasing two albums this year… AGAIN!
Released: December 6, 2017 (Rhythm Zone) So LDH girl-group E-girls are back with a new single titled "Kitakaze to Taiyou", which translates to "North Wind and the Sun". Ahhh, refreshing title, right? You would think that with their spark in ol' J-Pop world and their summery vibes would reflect on a single release like this… Continue reading E-girls: “Kitakaze to Taiyou” – Single Review
Released: November 24, 2017 (One Little Indian) I've been a fan of Björk for quite sometime, and with every album she releases, I continue to feel intrigued by her music. I don't know why... I can't even explain how... she just knows how to keep me on my feet. Björk has been a self-independent creator throughout… Continue reading Björk: ‘Utopia’ – Album Review
Released: November 15, 2017 (SME Records) Kana Nishino's music is always a bundle of fun, heartbreak, and filled with kawaii-realness. That's been a trend throughout her entire career.

Released: November 10, 2017 (Big Machine Records) Approximately every two-to-three years, Taylor Swift releases a studio album. And, if we all didn't notice (which y'all should notice by now, because it sticks out like the Christmas shopping promos in October...), but majority of the content on her album's deal with her private life... that goes… Continue reading Taylor Swift: ‘Reputation’ – Album Review
Released: October 11, 2017 (Self-released) I find Aira Mitsuki—an indie J-electronic singer—one of those musical acts that you feel would fit the threshold of your typical J-pop sound. But somehow, her sound, her looks, and her overall appeal just doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Her 2016 comeback singles; "Days" and "Detective A", were absolute… Continue reading Aira Mitsuki: ‘Pyramidal’ – Album Review
