Hey everyone, it's a been a while since we've had some news-related updates to this community, so here are some miscellaneous tidbits I've been hearing over the last month or so:

-In a recent MCweb update, it was reported that capsule are now on a temporary hiatus. This is due to a number of reasons; Toshiko is currently not in Tokyo, Nakata is taking the summer off (apparently), and they currently have no live events booked for the future. It's not something to worry about, because Nakata said something about recharging his inspiration for better songs in the future.

-COLTEMONIKHA's second album is no longer a rumour, as it has also been mentioned on Yamaha Music's website. Kate has inferred in her blog that the tentative title is Domino, and Nakata wrote that the album is now finished (whether this means finished-finished or recording-finished, I don't know). If all goes well, we will see a release in late summer.

-Perfume were at Nakata's house a month or two ago, discussing their future and working on something new. The fact that this seems to be taking a while with little hints as to the nature of the project gives me a glimmer of hope we might see an original album or mini-album next. Fingers crossed!

-For those of you who don't know, Nakata has produced a few singles for the singer meg recently. I have not personally heard them and don't know much about them.

-Nakata will be the producer for pop-star Ami Suzuki's next album. Whether this means he'll be producing and writing the entire album or just a few singles is not yet known.

-HALCALI's new album is coming out soon, entitled Cyborg Bokutachi. Oh wait...this doesn't have anything to do with Nakata. :D RAM RIDER will also be releasing his second original album, PORTABLE DISCO 2, sometime in the near future (it has been delayed indefinetly due to "selfish reasons", RR said).

So, things are a little slow at the moment, and all the signs are pointing towards a busy and fruitful contemode future =D Know something I don't? Feel free to add to the comments.
