The Pick Of Last Week’s J-Pop Releases

25 01 2010

1. Yui – Gloria

Yui’s excellent new single is similar to a past song of hers from 2005  called “Tomorrow’s Way”. Both songs displaying Yui’s incredible vocal talents to the fore.

2. Do As Infinity – Kimi ga Inai Mirai

DAI’s 22nd single is a special tie-in song with the InuYasha:The Final Act anime series.

3. Koda Kumi – Can We Go Back

Kumi’s latest single before the release of her new album called Universe is a cover of a Kelly Clarkson song. This song is also used to celebrate Kumi’s 10 years in the music business. Can it be 10 years already? She’s come a long way since her debut and I’m finding that her albums just keep getting better with each new release. I’m really looking forward to Universe which comes out on February 3rd. (Out of all the PV’s on this posting, this is the likeliest to be deleted soon by AVEX).

and finally

4. Saori@destiny – Ethnic Planet Survival

I don’t think there’s a PV for this as it’s a Tower Records only limited single. I’m very much into the Japanese electropop scene and Saori@destiny is one of the best artists in the genre.
