This week in music 01.14.2015

This week’s lone featured release comes from Tentenko (ex-BiS).


Tentenko – “Good Bye.Good Girl.


When Brand-new Idol Society announced that they were disbanding, I was a bit worried for Tentenko. All of the other members seemed to have something already lined up to move onto and she didn’t. My concerns appear to have been unfounded though because she’s back this week with her debut indie single. “Good Bye.Good Girl.” draws heavy inspiration from 80s pop music, something a number of idol groups have been dipping their toe into as of late. Something that I’m all for, it as long as it’s executed well and in an interesting way like in this case.

I’m not sure I’d really call Tentenko and idol these days though seeing as from what I can ascertain she’s writing and composing her own material, but it’s always nice to check in from time to time to see how life after idols is treating these artists. Also, there probably wouldn’t have been an article this week if I didn’t talk about this release so there’s that too.

Mic Check One Two” by Q’ulle

It’s a pretty quiet week which I suppose is to be expected at this time of year. That being said, there is one other release that I’d like to draw your attention to this week and it’s from Q’ulle. Their debut single “Mic Check One Two” is really enjoyable and its definitely made my list of candidates for a number of end of year awards already. Until next time.
