What Kirari is currently listening to


Figured I'd put in another music post, been a while since I did one (I think). This one will pretty much be a general mix of stuff I've been listening to a lot as of late.

First I'm starting with 6ε6* (Muni) who sang that very cute cover of Bathroom Garden I posted about last time (the last video). I was listening to some of her other stuff and was really surprised to hear how much range she has. She has that cutesy voice that she used for Bathroom Garden, and I expected her other songs to be similar, but then I saw a few songs in her list that wouldn't exactly go well with a cutesy voice for the whole song. So I played them, and I was really surprised. She does all the voices, and she's really good at them. First one I'll put up here is Mr. Alice.

I've been listening to this song a lot. All of her voices really add a lot of flavor to this song. I don't think there's another cover of this song that has as much personality as this one. Currently the song I listen to and keep hitting "replay" at the end of it over and over. It'll probably be that way for about a week before I listen to it casually instead of on constant loop.

Of course, I also looked at some of her other songs and found something else I really liked.



Her cover of Scissorhands is really nice. Her voice really compliments the song, I can imagine her singing this live. when I first heard the original I actually didn't like it that much, but hearing the song again in Muni's voice really changed it for me. Sometimes there are just Vocaloid songs that I like better with a human voice, and Vocaloid songs I think don't sound the same with a human voice.

I've also been listening to a lot of 相対性理論 (Soutaiseiriron, The Theory Of Reality). If the vocalist sounds familiar, that's because she's Etsuko Yakushimaru, she sang for openings of anime like Arakawa Under The Bridge.







I knew about the band before, but the songs never really started getting stuck into my head until after /jp/ radio started requesting her songs a lot.

I've also been listening to a bit of the Quartett! OST, but I might save those for a later post.

Stay easy, guys.

I have a hard time doing this regardless of what song it is. This was a good song though.

I feel the same way too. I thought I was just the minority in this statement though.

I listened to these before but didn't post. I think they're cute but I prefer Vocaloids singing Vocaloid stuff.
