Hearts On Fire

As Utada Hikaru's new album release date draws closer, the promotion is just beginning to unravel. Click below to watch her performance of "HEART STATION" on Hey!Hey!Hey! last night. For those unfamiliar with the construction of Japanese variety shows...No, those are not cadavers lined up on chairs…


Close Up!!!

The cover has been released for Utada's upcoming album, HEART STATION. Luckily, it looks nothing like her other album covers: 45 seconds of the upcoming PV for the song "HEART STATION" have been released on the song's special website, seen here. She has apparently gotten onto the wrong train.…


Too Much Bear, Not Enough Singer.

This has gone too far. Utada's released a CM (commercial clip) for her upcoming single, HEART STATION, and you'll never guess who makes an appearance. This has got to END, HIKARU. Unless--don't tell me. I'm not ready to hear it, but...well. Hikaru Utada...are you a furry?


Somethin' Kinda WOO!

Perfect. HEART STATION has finally been leaked, and it's shaping up to be an instant classic for me. The introduction starts off almost exactly like "日曜の朝," and breaks away almost as quickly with layered English ad-libs lightly floating above the song's stratosphere. I'm absolutely in love…


Everything I Love

I'm on an Utada kick, so I thought I'd feature Utada's arguably finest work ever, "Kremlin Dusk." The song was constructed with the Mars Volta's drummer, Jon Theodore, who does a superb job. Of course, as with every other song on the album, Utada produced and programmed the entire song. The lyrics…


East Meets West

Slow news day. No new music, either. That's to be expected...it is the weekend after all. I don't have anything of value to say, so I'll refer you to the music I've been listening to today: UTADA. Her english releases, I mean. Utada's English career is a sore subject for most fans; some people love…

Photoshoots and Teddy Bears

Aww, look how cute she is! Promotion is in full swing for Utada's next single, HEART STATION/Stay Gold, and the photoshoots have begun surfacing on the interwebs. I mean, sure she doesn't really look like herself, but since when was that important? Next step: Taking her away from the keyboard.…


Utada Hikaru - Stay Gold

AHHHH. I was just about to slumber, when I found that Utada's "Stay Gold" just premiered on the radio a few moments ago. It's only a low quality rip, but it sounds lovely. The emotional lyrics are clearly channeled through Hikki's breathy, pleading chants. If only this were HQ. I can't wait to…


Utada Hikaru - Single Cover

The cover for Utada's new single, HEART STATION / Stay Gold, was just released on her official website. It appears that she doesn't seem to be...ON IT. What kind of fuckery is this? I don't know. But I do know that the picture makes me think of love hotels, which makes me think of 25 cent vibrating…


Top Fancy Ticklers Of 2007

As promised, I present my picks for the top tunes that did a fair share of tickling my fancy throughout 2007. As a result, my fancy is currently in the process of pressing charges. This list involved a lot of thinking, which is usually against my better judgment. But in the meantime, I shall…
