Comiket 95 guest list
Another Suiseisou compilation! Like the previous one, each song represents a month and has an artwork by a different artist. This new BUTAOTOME song represents September (it's a September Pumpkin arrangement, after all) and its associated Ringo artwork is made by Mai Someya.
In addition, this song is among the tracks used as background music in Melonbooks stores this month, so if you are in Japan you might have a chance to listen to it before the official release!
Album: 娶 (Metori)
Circle: Diao ye zong
Title | Romaji (track number): 伴に歩くその心 | Tomo ni Aruku Sono Kokoro (track 4)
Original theme: Hana no Sakadzuki Ooeyama
Type: sung by Ranko
XFD: mp3 files [album xfd | extended preview]
After 7 years since Uso to Doukoku (and 6 since F to bloodstain from Nijiiro Palette, but that song is forgotten by the majority), we finally have a new song arranged by RD-Sounds and sung by Ranko. The album's theme is the marriage between humans and youkais and Ranko's track sounds very similar to the popular Suika song, at least from the preview.
If you want to purchase these albums and can't go to Comiket, both of them are available only on Melonbooks.

A retrospective on BUTAOTOME’s PVs
Happy birthday to the best cat pianist around! Also the owner of my favourite Butaotome pet cat. I wish her another year full of funny comus and wonderful Nekokenban music!
To celebrate, here is a crostata!

"We look forward to prepare new albums."
We definitely get the usual Touhou vocal album and Nekokenban 17, but who knows if there will be a third thing!
Apparently the realization has already started and the Sis doesn't have any problem to spoil stuff in her livestreams. On this screenshot you can read "winter cover Seija" (冬ジャケ正邪) as the filename.
One Week BUTAOTOME 68: Kakoinaki on Groove Coaster Steam, etc.
Bass Magazine special - Listen to these albums during the Bass Day!
This is part of a special feature on November 2018's issue of Bass Magazine. November 11 is Bass Day and 50 professional bassists from the Japanese music scene have been asked about their favourite albums for the bass. Below it's a translation of Comp's part!
Comp's favourite record
"Travelling Without Moving" Jamiroquai
This album is wonderful both in sound and groove, but to say the least I think it's a record where you can listen a "vigorous" play. Soul has been put into, or more simply, it's like it has been filled with the way of life of the player. It's a fascinating makunouchi bento of bass that gives an impression like "He was surely playing it sexy while recording~". I often listened to this one while driving.
"Funk Overload" Maceo Parker
"The Sun Don't Lie" Marcus Miller
"Circus" Lenny Kravitz
