I figured I ought to make another Halloween review, so here we are! (^-^)

Crimson Poem by Yikii was released at the beginning of October, and somehow completely slipped under my radar. Luckily, I saw a tweet about its Pitchfork review, and the wonderful cover art convinced me to check it out. This album is totally unlike anything I’ve listened to, musically and atmospherically. Before Crimson Poem, I had never listened to, or even heard of Yikii; this album was an ... read more

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.

For reference, I’d like to explain how I discovered Uchuu Nekoko, and why they’ve been such an important band to me. Back in mid-2020, there was some time - about 2 months or so - where all I really listened to was Japanese shoegaze. I’m not really sure what sparked it, but it was one of the greatest (musical) times of my life. This was a period where I was not really stressed, and I was able to ... read more

Credit where credit’s due, this is an incredibly impressive and cool project to create. I’ve wanted to try making music for so long but never gotten around to it, and here I see “Gel.” putting together a near half-an-hour project of his own, very unique music. Music made by AOTY users is a fun category to look through, because you’re able to know what kinds of music they enjoy, what artists have influenced their projects, ... read more

Feels is the second of what I see as the “big four” of AnCo’s discography; the four albums that would lead to them being seen as one of the 2000s greatest pop artists. It is also, strangely enough, the most overlooked of these four, at least in my experience. Don’t get me wrong, I love Sung Tongs and the albums following this one, but ... read more

๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸฅณHAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

Happy 7th birthday to Worlds, Porter Robinson’s debut studio album!!! In celebration, and to apologize for taking around 6 and a half years to discover it, I’ve gathered my thoughts on what makes this strange electronic album work so well.

I’ll admit; I was not at all active in the EDM or even the general music scene during the years of Porter Robinson’s rise to prominence. That said, just a brief comparison of the music made ... read more

Seeing as how a new album is supposedly coming out next month, I thought I’d take the time to look back at “Kimi no Youni Ikiretara”; an album that has stuck with me as an example of Japanese shoegaze / dream pop done wonderfully.

Uchuu Nekoko, or Universe Nekoko, or ๅฎ‡ๅฎ™ใƒใ‚ณๅญ, or Universe Kitten(?) is a band that I happened upon early last year while binging miscellaneous Japanese shoegaze on spotify. The beautiful album art (drawn by Tomoko Oshima) alongside the ... read more

I was in the same boat too, especially since I heard this could emotionally wreak you, and I personally have experience with the themes. I also knew it had to be the review I came out in, so that delayed it even more. Then baddie reviewed it, and I was like "๐Ÿ˜ข dang, guess I have too". I hope you experience the masterpiece for yourself, it is really good! Also, I hope you rock that trans jacket!

Hey @Windy (•^-^•) , i hope you’re doing good. Me and the man himself @DonCorleone are making a new community list. I’d be absolutely delighted if you would participate. It’s about your 10 favourite songs of the year. So if you want to participate. Send me a shout, with 10 of your favourite songs of the year, in no particular order. You can also write about each song, why it’s your favourite, you know quick thoughts. But it’s not needed. I really hope you’ll take part in our list :).
