Hey Y’all

2010年 8月 5日

Hi everyone! Aoliwa here.

As you’ve probably noticed, Koweizhi and I have been rather absent lately. We just got back from a Taiwanese American camp and we’ve got lots of stuff.

  • Jpop releases by: YUI, Kanon Wakeshima, Nana Mizuki, VAMPS, alan, Ayumi Hamasaki, JASMINE, Namie Amuro
  • Kpop releases by: C.N. Blue (discography), BoA, and SHINee
  • Editorials: Kpop vs. Jpop (II), Summer of Tek
  • Live reviews: D’espairsRay, Dir en grey (we get to meet them :D)
  • New Polls
  • Aoliwa’s playlists for EVERYTHING

Also Koweizhi and I are doing some recording in the next couple of days so we might post that as well. Look forward to it!!

Much 愛、



Artist in Residence: C.N. Blue

2010年 6月 26日

After some recommendations from our beloved Tsuki no Ai readers, Aoliwa decided to check out Jrock/Krock band, C.N. Blue! I recently listened to their first Japanese single, The Way, and fell in love with the music. I’ll be reviewing their entire discography in the next couple of weeks, so keep on the look out. Also, I haven’t forgotten about Ayaka, and I’ll resume reviewing her music once I finish C.N. Blue’s. After some careful consideration, I felt that the “Artist in Residence” feature on Tsuki no Ai should really be used to promote new or underrated artists. Of course Koweizhi and I will work on discographies on the side, but we hope everyone will embrace this slight change.

Also, perhaps why I’m so stricken with C.N.Blue fever is because I have the same exact birthday as once of the members :D. Which one?



New Feature: Artist in Residence

2010年 3月 8日

Yay new feature time! So in a recent poll readers voted that they’d like to see more discographies from artists posted in the blog. Kowezhi and I had the idea to create an “Artist in Residence” feature in order to carry out this task. An Artist in Residence program is something I had when I was in 5th and 6th grade. As part of a magnet school different artists would come in and show us their craft. We’d like to create that same atmosphere here at Tsuki no Ai. Although this picture features alan (I was looking for an excuse to use it in a graphic), all different kinds of artists and bands will be featured.

Since this is relatively new for me I’ll be doing a memorable artist with a manageable sized discography: ayaka. At the moment ayaka has put her career on hold in order to treat Grave’s disease. In the meantime all we lowly fans can do is listen to old favorites until she comes back. If you haven’t heard of ayaka, then you’ve most likely been living under a rock (with a force field of Ayu stans surrounding it). Hopefully I’ll be able to do this incredibly talented artist justice.
