SWEEEEEET. Kikka+VOCALOID?! WIN.

7 10 2012

In a month, Kikkawa You will release a cover album.  But not just any album. Oh no.  A VOCALOID COVER ALBUM, titled “Vocalist?”.  I think I’ve mentioned once or twice that I’m really into Vocaloid music because I’ve really been on an electronic kick for a year or so and Vocaloid has some phenomenal shit.  When you get the good producers with a program that can synthesize what’s too difficult or expensive for a human to do… they get creative in the most amazing way.

Anyway.  Kikkawa You is doing a cover of songs by Vocaloid producers!  EPIC.  I don’t recognize any of the songs right off the bat, but I know a lot more Vocaloid songs by their sound than their names, so maybe once it’s out I’ll be like “OMG WHAT I LOVE THIS SONG AND I LOVE KIKKA THIS IS AWESOME.”  The only producer I recognize is MSR, but that doesn’t hinder my excitement either.  I have a feeling this album will be absolutely phenomenal.

It goes on sale November 7th.  So keep your calendars marked.  It’s been a long while since I’ve done an album review.  This one may be it.

Kikkawa You – Koko Kara Hajimarunda

7 07 2012

I can’t remember if I’ve talked about Kikkawa You’s solo works before here.  For those of you who don’t know, she started out as a Hello! Project trainee after being turned down for the Morning Musume Generation 8 auditions.  She participated in Milky Way with Kusumi Koharu for a while and now is signed under Universal Records as a solo artist.  Which, I should mention, have been absolutely phenomenal so far.  But her newest single, “Koko Kara Hajimrunda,” has to be her best yet.
