A few updates:

Shiina Ringo

Ringohime's 2005 fan club con on DVD!
「第一回林檎班大会の模様」
2007年2月21日(水)発売
品番:QIFK-50005
価格:4,100円
As you can see, the catalogue number isn't usual TOBF, so I have no idea if it's fc only, indie or whatever.

Ringohime's also gonna be on NHK TV show 「フォークの達人・長谷川きよし」 (Expert of Folk Hasegawa Kiyoshi). The show will be aired on 2007/02/02, but the filming's on 2006/12/12 so they're recruiting audience:

Woops! :doh:  I was reading somewhere else that she's releasing a solo album in a few months then I saw that and assumed that was it.

^ Judging by the translation of the album title, it sounds like it's going to be another *AWESOME* Shiina album! :heart: I can't wait~ It's been way too long since Shiina released something solo!

You know what, I'd like to see more discussion here. I know it's too early, and the only song that's been heard is "Karisome Otome", but it seems like a lot of people are disappointed already with the tracklist (including me, actually). But I still have faith in Ringohime, so I'd like to hear more opinions, or expectations, or whatever. I'm afraid there'll be a lot of people "loosing interest" in Shiina (like the thetokyoincidents blog guy), so please reply :/

Well I'm sure everyone thinks new album = new material, especially coming from Ringohime. Even though the tracklist won't be new material, I'm still expecting good things. I'm not really disappointed, just kind of expected other things. But I'm sure the tracks will be arranged so differently that they'll seem like new material. She's really good at doing that. Still, I'm excited to hear what the violinist guy does on this.

I'll be waiting to hear it.

To be honest I prefer Tokyo Jihen's stuff to Shiina's solo stuff. But Shiina's solos are always good to hear. I doubt they'd be the exact same songs anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me. The tracklist, that is.

CDJapan now has somewhat longer description:
Fourth full-length album from Ringo Shiina features collaboration with conductor Neko Saito and his 70-piece string and woodwind orchestra. Includes elements of jazz, classic, Latin, tango, and more for a whole new sound for Ms. Shiina. Includes five new songs, covers, and self-covers for a total of 13 tracks.

A hueg orchestra must be a win, but "la salle de bain" never was my favorite song for example. So, Latin classic jazz tango, hmm whad? x_X

And I like all of Ringohime's music, but I guess I consider KZK and Kyouiku the best.

She's done so many different things and different styles before Tokyo Jihen, that to me Tokyo Jihen is just another extension of Shiina Ringo.  When she first formed Tokyo Jihen people were saying "Oh no! She's joined a band!" but to me it was just Shiina Ringo changing a little and doing something different.  And now she's going solo again?  Nothing to worry about.  All it means is we'll get some more songs.

Tokyo Jihen was a step up for all the members. Hirama Mikio's solo works are great (like hell I'd know if he wasn't in TJ), and I'm looking forward to HZM's solo debut (the 3 tracks he composed for Kyouiku were awesome too), so they all got recognition thanks to Shiina, despite always being in her shadow... win/win, I think. And damn, was there even an official announcement of their disbandment?

btw, I can't see her smaller mole :O I remember joking about her removing the other mole after leaving Tokyo Jihen lol

I hope Tokyo Jihen keeps alive despite Ringo's solo comeback.

I am not surprised she wants to comeback with a Best alike album.
Big yay~ for the single in January :D
