07 - Ai no Uta
08 - Anta wa Dare ya
09 - Tokai no Nioi

Torrent for both of them on the tracker


Female vocalist/guitarist: Gotou Mariko
Naked male drummer: Koseni Yoshitaka
Keyboardist: Hajime

Best line I came across by them in an interview:
Interviewer: I've heard that you originally had more members, but now it's just the three of you?
Gotou: We used to have a lot, but it's more like we went through a lot of different people.  There were times we did shows with 5 members.
Interviewer:  What sort of music were you making then?
Koseni: Pretty much the same as we're making now, I think.
Hajime: Really, you were?
Kosheni: We didn't have any piano, and for a while we had a guy using a Kaoss Pad and someone just for videos...  Also had a guy that'd whip out his cock and dance around naked for a while.

Sound is a mixture of jazz and hardcore punk mostly, but strays at times into JPop-ish ballads and death metal.  They remind me of Shiina Ringo in a way.  If you condensed all the music styles she's done into one group, and gave all the members the craziness she used to have, you'd get something like them.

Also, their t-shirts are love.

I'd say they'd fit in here.

Awesome band. I really like the presence of the piano in their sound. It's edgy, lol. I came across them a couple months ago when I saw the Romantic Natsu Mode PV. Didn't have any albums until recently, though. I listened to Second earlier today. Pretty good album at first listen.
The chick is crazy. Kinda hot, actually.

Just with the recent stuff.  If you look at their older PVs or the covers to their first album they didn't cover her eyes.  It's just something for their current album/site design and for the PV of Doping Noise Noise Kiss.

A lot of their stuff reminds of Bemani game music.  The intro to Doping Noise Noise Kiss makes me think it should be in IIDX everytime I hear it.  Most of them feel like they'd fit comfortably in IIDX or GFDM.

Seems like they officially have a bass player now, too.

seated venue? then that means there probably will be no flips on top of the crowd :(
