New electropop unit ORDINARY VENUS
Apparently the managers of Nishiwaki Sayaka, known as Cha-pon of idol group 9nine and the younger sister of Nishiwaki Ayaka (aka A~chan of Perfume), are trying to get her to ride A~chan's coat-tails, because now Sayaka's gone on some
spiritual solo-ish journey to team up with GOATBED (of CALI//GARI) to form an electropop unit, ORDINARY VENUS. I can't seem to find an official website for this at all despite their album coming out next week on December 17th.
Looks like their first release is entirely a cover album, and I've already spotted what's hooked me in - a cover of "I Don't Know," by BaBe! :D
Oh, and I just found a sample of the album on Nicovideo. (*___*) If you have an account, come listen. It sounds kind of promising, actually.
