So KILLER WAVE was postponed indefinitely due to the earthquake. (Nakata and Toshiko are both okay for those who were wondering.) Was it because of the title? Probably, and that's unfortunate, because Nakata put a lot of effort and consideration into choosing the perfect one. But I also don't think now is really the time for a title like that, even though it was picked in advance and it's no one's fault... ugh. I'm sorry capsule is having to go through it, especially when it seems like this is the first album they've both put equal work into in a long time.
It's incredible, really, because I was checking YouTube aimlessly and some KILLER WAVE promo stuff from Nakata's appearance in Sound & Recording has already gone online. This is the good news, if you will, since it showcases the different synths he used this time. I put them under the cut:
OPEN THE GATE
WORLD OF FANTASY
(Obviously, but I included them anyway.)
Discuss as always, I suppose. I'm sad because I'd actually gotten myself excited for this album again. :(
I'd also like to hear something about the new Perfume single soon...
