I am the only one whom it bothers that there is so seldom a differentiation between singles and full albums from more indie bands?


like tell me which one of those is a full album without knowing the concrete releases

Hm… this isn’t restricted to japanese indies, is it? When I go to bandcamp I see that most artists and bands use the same visual language for all their releases. Even single track demo releases sometimes get a graphical design that makes it look like a big, official release. Maybe that phenomenon happens because the existence of the internet and music streaming eroded the lines between album, single and EP?

When looking back to say the 90s singles often had a very distinct look from albums, even in VK. But wit the age of music downloads and streaming that seems to become rarer.

for someone who doesn’t care about 80s hair metal, I sure am getting close to stanning earlier 90s vk


need a 1 year vacation from reality


i wish i cared more about vkei these days but the excitement i have now doesn’t hold a candle to what was (talking like early 2000’s) and yeah understandably so as it’s not a boom anymore but i really miss those days when you could find a vkei magazine here in a shop. i liked that it had a sliver or presence then, but i feel like i’m grasping at something fleeting. i only really follow a select few bands anymore and i don’t have older music on rotation as much as i used to.


gya/vk lore looks cute in cartoon form, lol … also, “a retirement plan for otakus”. This is why I need to check my Twitter feed more often.


Fuck me, I didn’t expect that essay to not have been written by him. I haven’t cried that hard since Pikachu tried to zap Ash back to life when he was turned to rock.

Lmao bro I miss you so much, i still sometimes look at all these pictures we took together. I wish we could make more happy memories together. I miss your pretty smile and the way you’d tell me everythings gonna be okay in that soft voice of yours.
