J-Pop Idol Group Momoiro Clover Z Sets Out To Win Over Western Audiences Releasing Their First Two Albums Through American Label Cleopatra!


Los Angeles, CA - Hot on the heels of the group’s history making collaboration with hard rock legends KISS, Momoiro Clover Z is looking to capitalize on the burgeoning interest of Western audiences for Japanese Pop Idol music by issuing their first two albums in select Western markets. Arriving first on April 14 is of Momclo’s most recent album, the mega-popular 5TH DIMENSION, which contains another stellar collaboration with metal royalty, superstar guitarist Marty Friedman of Megadeth who lends his six-string pyrotechnics to one of the album’s songs. Following that release just two weeks later is the Limited Edition A version of Battle And Romance, Momoclo’s astounding 2011 debut album that won the Grand Prix prize at Japan’s prestigious 4th CD Shop Awards! This version includes a bonus disc of solo recordings by each of the Momoclo members.

Founded in 2008, Momoiro Clover Z are hugely popular stars in their home country of Japan. Their albums have topped Japan’s music charts while their highly energetic and theatrical live performances have packed stadiums with tens of thousands of devoted fans. Stylistically, the group merges the danceable rhythms and bouncy vocal melodies of J-pop with cutting edge music production steeped in the energy of American hard rock. No wonder then that the group caught the attention of quintessential American hard rocker Paul Stanley of KISS, who penned two songs for this special international collaboration. The two groups even filmed a visually stunning new video that pits the two acts against one another in an epic, anime-inspired fantasy battle. Next stop for Momoiro Clover Z - WORLD DOMINATION!

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
