New PV Alert: Kus Kus – Picolation

I can’t help it. Kus Kus is incredibly cute; I powerless against them. The twosome’s latest electro influenced song, “Picolation” unleashes choreography that actually accents the groups small size. There’s some stop motion work that looks straight from Pythagora Switch, and of course Mai and Yui being their adorable selves. …

New PV Alert: DEEP GIRL – Sweetness (Live Video)

For the latest DEEP GIRL live video, the foursome perform Jimmy Eat World’s “Sweetness”. The group trade heavily in 1990’s nostalgia with their picks of covers. These choices may be pleasing to many of us watching (I remember Jimmy Eat World quite clearly) but I’m getting the feeling that enough …

New PV Alert: Younapi – été

From the very first few notes of this promotional video, I could tell I would have some amount of affection for Younapi’s “été”. No, it’s not a powerful song, nor is it as lively as the recent work from her group, Yurumerumo!. I just love the sound of the percussion …

New PV Alert: P.IDL Nagoya – SAN-EN Neo Phoenix Ouen

P.IDL’s Nagoya sister group, the aptly named P.IDL Nagoya, release a promotional video for “SAN-EN Neo Phoenix Ouen”. Quite obviously, the song is a cheer song for the named basketball team. Most of the charm with this release is the visual hilarity of seeing the idol girls match against the …

New PV Alert: Guso Drop – Gushin

Guso Drop assaults us with a live promotional video for their release “Gushin”. I say “assault” because the song and accompanying PV hit like a ton of bricks. Heavy and loud, “Gushin” gives metal idol fans a run for their money. The live performance itself shows an energized audience that …
