Rather than constantly expanding our April Rules playlist, we decided to simply start a volume 2, which is now long enough for posting.  Once again, the tracks are simply listed in the order they currently appear in, but we may add a few more tracks here and there as the month goes on,...

PLAYLIST: BACK TO MINE: MICHAEL MCCARTHY (with commentary!)

PLAYLIST: BACK TO MINE: MICHAEL MCCARTHY There’s a series of chill-out mixes compiled by various artists called Back To Mine. (“Back to mine?” is what they say in England when someone asks someone to go back to their place, usually to have sex.) They’re basically mixes for, well, making love. I decided to...

PLAYLIST: SUICIDE IS PAINLESS

by Michael McCarthy I’ve always required music to sleep. (Music and a loud fan or air conditioner.) When I was younger, I could listen to anything and drift off to sleep. Motley Crue? Absolutely. Iron Maiden? Sure. Seemed like anything could soothe my soul and whisk me away to dreamland. But, unfortunately, as...

  • LEO IEIRI: JUNJO
    LEO IEIRI: JUNJO Release Date:  7/30/14 Label:  Victor Entertainment "Junjo" is among her most vibrant and infectious tunes to date, which is surely why it's being used as the ending theme for the new Dragonball Kai anime series. Singer/songwriter Leo Ieiri's new single, "純情," or "Junjo," finds her doing what she does
  • PAIPAI DEKAMI: レッツドリーム小学校 [Let's Dream Shogakko]
    PAIPAI DEKAMI: レッツドリーム小学校 [Let's Dream Shogakko] Release Date:  6/25/14 Label:  MYRD But after listening to the album, all of my preconceived notions leapt out the window and crashed to the pavement, dying when their necks were all but shattered. This one really surprised me, not unlike half of the stuff I listen to in the interest of reviewing it for y
  • ZIGZO: FOREVER YOUNG
    ZIGZO: FOREVER YOUNG Release Date:  7/1/14 Label:  Japan Crown Forever Young is ZIGZO's way of celebrating their 15th anniversary. It's also a great hits compilation that's also noteworthy because it includes a re-recording of their 1999 single "Himawari." Who the hell are ZIGZO? According to Wiki, they're a Japanese rock superg
  • MOTOHIRO HATA: ひまわりの約束 [Himawari No Yakusoku]
    MOTOHIRO HATA: ひまわりの約束 [Himawari No Yakusoku] Release Date:  8/6/14 Label:  AUCL If very mellow singer/songwriter music is your thing... I know I review more female artists than male artists here. It's been that way from day one. Why? Because I like to write about what I enjoy and I was already an active fan of many of the female artists I regularly cov
  • PUFFY: 秘密のギミーキャット ~うふふ 本当よ~
    PUFFY: 秘密のギミーキャット ~うふふ 本当よ~ Release Date:  2014 Label:  Sony Music Artist Inc. This song is insane. In many ways. Puffy, known as Puffy Amiyumi here in the States, have always been known for doing zany stuff. You never know what to expect from them. I don't think they've ever done rap, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that's what th
