暁Records – トレジャーチルノ (Treasure Cirno)!

Yep, I write this every time, and I’m going to write it again: you’re in for a real treat this week! Just like every week, you just never know what Akatsuki Records has in store for you next.

This week, the song I’ll be “reviewing” is トレジャーチルノ (Treasure Cirno).
If you thought the catgirls from last week were interesting, then you’d best give Treasure Cirno a listen!

暁Records – ワガママ ONE DAY!

It’s time for another song by Akatsuki Records, ワガママ ONE DAY!
While I can pronounce ワガママ (wagamama) I had to look up the meaning, which is essentially spoiled / selfish, and can also mean “naughty child”. Makes complete sense given the song.

I’m sure you’ll pick up on the reasoning for that word in the title fairly quickly!

暁Records – KILLOVE FIREPROOF

You’re in for a treat folks, more 暁Records!

This week’s song is in a similar vein to a previous song that I’ve written about, which was 少女救世論 (Girl’s Salvation Theory). In other words, it’s a step away from some of the wacky songs I’ve posted, and a step back to something with more power / emotion – KILLOVE FIREPROOF. It that name doesn’t scream passion, I don’t know what does.

暁Records – トランスダンスアナーキー (Trance Dance Anarcky)

There have been enough anime reviews posted on the blog this week, so it’s about time to relax a bit and “review” another Akatsuki Records song – Trance Dance Anarcky. Another song, another wild change in style. We’ve seen that Akatsuki Records is capable of quite the variety of songs, from wacky to emotional, and while I haven’t gotten to some others yet, they also have a few mellow songs too.

That said, we’ve come back to wacky this week with Trance Dance Anarcky.

暁Records Song Review – 少女救世論 (Girl’s Salvation Theory)

Another day, another work of art by Akatsuki Records.
I knew Touhou’s soundtrack was good, but I am so impressed with how good these Akatsuki Records interpretations are. Transforming classic game soundtrack into beautiful and dynamic songs. It’s really something else.

The song this time is another great example of this!

暁Records Song Review – WARNING×WARNING×WARNING

Something that I really enjoy about these 暁Records (Akatsuki Records) songs is that they all feel and sound so different. And this is due to the fact that these songs each use a different Touhou track as inspiration. Not only that, but the PV’s themselves are also very well done and fun to watch.

Last song I reviewed was LOVE EAST.
This time I’ll write a few words for WARNING×WARNING×WARNING:

Akatsuki Records (暁Records) Song Review – LOVE EAST

Lately YouTube has been in control of what I listen to.
It’s been quite the journey for me. Started out with OP / EDs, moved to various Japanese songs.. YouTube went completely Japanese on me, and now I’m starting to see more English again in the song titles.

The style of music has been pretty consistent though, mostly rock and electronic.

While Hanatan is my favourite artist from this whole journey so far, YouTube has also directed me to this group called Akatsuki Records, or 暁Records. They’ve got a really interesting sound, very electronic, but the singer has a pretty crazy sound (in a good way). When it comes to Japanese vocals, I like it when the singer lets loose.

I also looked up Akatsuki Records and I guess they have something to do with Touhou. Akatsuki Records takes inspiration from Touhou songs, and uses portions / aspects of Touhou music in their songs. I actually have recognized a few in their songs, because I love listening to piano versions of Touhou songs. Never actually played the games. Flight of the Bamboo Cutter was one of my favourites to listen to on the piano.

Seeing as I’m listening to Akatsuki Records anyways, I figure why not review some of their songs? Starting with the song titled LOVE EAST.
