New Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: “Family Party”

Look, the song here is just OK…for a phoned-in movie tie-in, its better than most but that’s a lousy standard to aspire to. It glitches and pops like a possessed SNES, and dares to be fizzier than, say, Perfume’s “Mirai No Museum.”

The video, though, is great as ever. It’s some strange sports match between Kyary and a robot (controlled by an…octopus?…version of Kyary) featuring a language I think nobody can understand. Talk about shooting for universal appeal…leave everyone in the dark. Anyway, it’s great, watch it above.

(Should take a moment to mention the B-sides to both her singles this year are really great pieces of music!)
