Rio Hiiragi

Posted: October 9, 2017 in General, Music (general), TV & Movies

Just watched a documentary called “Tokyo Girls” on SVT2 (Swedish television). First glimpse of the Japanese Pop & Idol scene that we have seen over here. Some disturbing moments, but I really respect Rio Hiiragi (who was a major part of this documentary) and her energy to make her career work out. What I saw was a dreamer that was willing to go the extra mile to have success. She even went out on a long bicycle tour to meet her fans (clever promotion). Last scene showed her recording in a studio working with a top song writer who had discovered her.

Reruns on October 11 SVT1 23:45 & October 15 K 18:00.

New Tarja video

Tarja has released the first video from her upcoming Christmas album (see earlier post). Titled “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” it shows great promise. Also released as a very Limited Edition Single of 1,000 copies.

Check out the video here.

Picked up these CDs/Vinyls this morning after work. The new Black Country Communion album “BCCIV” and the Suzi Quatro Best Of set “Legends”.

Feels good.

Nice OnePixcel cover

I mentioned the up and coming J-Pop band OnePixcel on August 20 on this blog. First album is out in October 18 over there. Here they are on the cover of Japanese publication Vocal & Dance Collection Magazine (issue) 6. I guess this means that the promotional campaign has hit into full gear.

Watch the video for the song “Sora” here.

Tarja (Turunen) is to release a Christmas album of sorts on November 17 titled “From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)”. This is the cover art of the CD, the LP differs. She has got enough warpaint on her face here to see a Babymetal concert (corpse paint only – you know what I mean). I quite like this.

Class act.

Brave Enough

Added Lindsey Stirling´s “Brave Enough” CD to the old collection. Armed with a violin and a vision she takes on the world. Some of her videos has hundreds of millions of views on YouTube and she is certainly entertaining on many levels. This record was done after she had lost a dear friend and it deals with many layers of feelings and emotions. It is a beautiful statement.

Great cover art, I think majestic is the word.

Well this is pretty cool. A 20 track Suzi Quatro Compilation titled “Legend” is released on September 22. I just have to go for the Double Vinyl in Gold. How cool is that?

September will be expensive.
