Further Ahead of Warp – I’m Alone [LYRICS]

I’m still doing it. Gonna be careful this time.

If it wasn’t clear, I just edit the English lyrics for grammar and feel. You should still shout the original lyrics when you sing along!

Song: I’m Alone
Artist: 縫糸 a.k.a. シュウ ft. きょーこ
———> nuiito a.k.a. shuu ft. kyouko

Further Ahead of Warp – mylittlemonster [LYRICS]

This chorus is too good. So what if kafka-senpai already did this one?! I do what I want.

… I finished translating and then I went to kafka-senpai’s version and it was way better.

Just… read his instead.

Song: mylittlemonster
Artist: 縫糸 a.k.a. シュウ ft. エコ

Further Ahead of Warp – Sleepless Beauty [LYRICS]

Here we go. I’mma be straight with you and say I liked the last full album better, but this album has some really good songs.

Further Ahead of Warp isn’t really a metal circle, guys. If anything, they’re the closest we’re going to get (musically) to Suzuori-era Foreground Eclipse; that is to say, emotionally charged punk/post-hardcore. Just because Shuu isn’t afraid to throw in a breakdown or use more distorted guitar tones doesn’t make Further Ahead of Warp a metal circle.

死際サテライト – 崩壊セルロイド

Shinigiwa Satellite – Houkai Celluloid

Happy New Year.

—-

I’m still doing my own Touhou arranges, you know. Just had a big double release for Comic Market 87.

Find Your Way 9th EP – TRUESTAR EP

and bandcamp

and Touhou post-rock “the distant journey to you” first album – morningview

the distant journey to you – morningview

There are mediafire links on the bandcamp pages if you don’t want to pay on bandcamp. I only get a few downloads a month and when they run out I’m forced to put up a paywall.

So yeah. Please check those out if you’re interested. And tell your friends if you want. And donate to me if you think that’s okay. I’d really appreciate it.

I am on twitter a lot of the time, so feel free to complain about how this blog has “sold out to the man.”

Girl Scouts – Discography [LYRICS]

I’ve never done something like this before so I don’t know how to categorize it, or label it. Hopefully I’ll figure it out along the way, because this was fun and I’ll probably do it again. This counts as a primer, too.

Girl Scouts was a Philadelphia three-piece band that fused the driving pulses of emo-punk and the sometimes abrupt and jarring rhythms of math rock together in a manner that felt different from any band I had listened to before. Combined with confessional, nostalgic, and anxious lyrics about friends, growing up, and growing older, and a vocal style from vocalist/guitarist PJ Carroll that was strong in delivery and emotion, you would need to look harder to a band more “emo” than this.

After releasing a demo EP and then doing a split with Old Gray they “pretty much didn’t do anything for 2 years” and then officially broke up during the middle of 2014. I half regret not going to their last show but it was a 6 hour drive, and I had a show to play the very next day, so it’s only a half regret. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed their music and so I’ve compiled all their lyrics, and then I translated them into Japanese for the benefit of any Japanese readers but mostly for fun.

If you don’t like the band after listening to the “thanksalot” demo, I don’t know what to tell you. You probably won’t like their other 6 songs.

Girl Scoutsはエモパンクとマスロックのフィラデルフィア・スリーピースバンドでした。
曲は楽しくて切ないと思ってこのバンドはとても面白くて大好きです。
でも2014年にGirl Scoutsが解散しました。
全曲をポストして作詞を日本語に翻訳しました。

Thank you to Vince Kaichan for doing first revision editing on my translations. Continue reading

【東方】Foreground Eclipse

Foreground Eclipse was a self-proclaimed “emo/screamo” Touhou arrangement band that eventually would go on to become a “post-hardcore/metalcore” band. At the time of the band’s formation, no other circles were doing this blend of punk and screamo, and the production values were relatively high on their full albums, so Foreground Eclipse’s fanbase steadily grew through the years before their dissolution at the end of 2013. Their 4 years of activity can be broken into 2 clean segments: during and post-Suzuori’s activities as a member. Continue reading

Kept you waiting, huh? Felt pretty good to finish one of these. Tabbing is an art.

But I’ve been doing my own thing. Download my music. Download my Touhou arrangements.

Download Babbe’s Syrufit tribute album (I did track 5).
