[Roundup] Non-Idol Picks of Q3 2019

by Garry

Hey wait a minute, didn’t we just do one of these?

No dear reader, your eyes are no deceiving you this is indeed the Non-Idol Roundup for Q3 (July thru September) of 2019. Compared to past efforts this edition is positively timely and well, there’s a good reason for that. You see I’m currently off getting up to who knows what in Japan and I needed a few articles to tide you guys over until I get back. It’s kind of amazing what a little motivation can do to a guy. I’m not saying expect the next one to be out in a similarly quick time but maybe I can at least try to start 2020 with my best foot forward.

If you’re new here then you’re probably wondering where the heck the Idol reviews are. Well you’re getting one of those this week too so don’t panic. As for this article, well believe it or not I do like to listen to some non-Idol music that comes out of Japan from time to time as well. There aren’t nearly enough hours in the day to cover everything in a similar fashion to how I cover the Idol stuff so I have to make do with one big post ever 3 months…or so. I basically feature the release, write a short paragraph about it, chuck an MV below that as a sample then include an affiliate link or two so you can help support the site should you feel like making a purchase. Pretty simple stuff but people seem to like it and I enjoy putting them together so don’t expect this feature to be going anywhere anytime soon.

We’re covering the main summer months in this edition so there’s a decent selection of releases here. I even had to cut a few of the less interesting ones to make sure this thing wasn’t going to be ridiculously long. There’s some familiar faces as always but more than a couple of lesser known bands, artists, etc so I do hope that you all find something interesting to listen to. My tastes are pretty wide ranging so there should be a decent variety but if you read enough of these things you’ll know that there are certain genres and sounds that I do favor a bit more than others. I am only human after all.

So yeah, hopefully you find this content interesting but I totally get it if you’re only really here for the Idol stuff. Maybe skim this article if you have the time, but if not there should be a regular review going up in a couple of days so check back then for that. For everyone else I’m going to stop waffling on here and let you get to checking out the selection of releases that I’ve laid on for you this time. Feel free to leave a comment here or on social media and let me know if you enjoyed any of them or even tell me what you’ve been enjoying lately yourself. Right that’s enough from me. What are you waiting for? Go find yourself something cool to listen to you crazy kids.
