Fresh Music: A Look at Some Fresh Idol J-Pop
I mentioned yesterday on our Twitter that I had recently come across some groups that have sparked interest in me. While we don`t focus on highly popular J-Pop and that does cause us to have various degrees of success for the various groups we present. In tradeoff is the journey of discovery of these groups and the relaxed concert experience of the underground Idols.
I really enjoy the underground local experience seeing the Idols take a more hands on task to their career from selling their own goods, to having 30 minute chats with fans around the merch table and taking two-shots with fans.
I have been trying to think of which groups I wanted to present today and I couldn`t decide on just one ,so here is a look at some Idol J-Pop groups that has caught my eyes recently.
On top of this list is OSAKA★SHUNKASHUTO a group I recently wrote about .Mania`s voice gives me the feeling of chills down the spine, something that very rarely happens to me with singers or songs. So when it does there is something special to the group.
NOZOMI is an Idol from Osaka that has put together some local fame and following. NOZOMI is 16 and earlier this summer was in a group known as Magical Monster Beats, however when you access their web site it`s now just a NOZOMI solo site and even the group`s You Tube channel is now a NOZOMI channel. MMB vanished almost as quickly as they were mentioned by us in April.
This is a group that released their first single back in April and with 500 active Idol groups it`s easy to let a group slip off your radar for a bit.
New maid Idol group with loads of potential
This is just a small look at some groups that have been catching my eyes lately. I hope to bring some more groups up in the days to come and also take a look at some Idols that are putting on some great shows at recent live houses.
