Greetings!! Just a few hours left until NEW YEARS in USA and I want to share the last of my favorites from 2021
Starting off with Kinki Kids and An/Par single came out in the middle of the summer and i got it when it came out. Such a great song. I played it a lot in my car.
This was a nice refreshing song Koichi puts out a lot of good music on his own! I was happy I bought this album!
The other member of Kinki has this awesome funk project called ENDRECHERI ! I’ve played a lot of this music on my show since March 2021
There was an online stream he did and I got to watch it. This is the digest.
Heian Jingu Shrine live 2021 dvd also came out this past summer with artwork made by Tsuyoshi.
Tsuyoshi also started up an instagram page thanks to johnny and ENDRECHERI started up a twitter to promote GO TO FUNK which I thought was one of the most fun albums this year. I listened to it so much and I played a lot of it too on #iheartjrock. But I bought this dvd and watched it a few times. It’s magical and beautiful and I love it my most favorite thing of 2021
Figures I start liking a band the year they go on haitus.. I am not sure if anything was officially put out in 2021 by Arashi. I have a favorite tho.. do you know what it is? Do you think they will get back together soon?
