RAYCHELL’s debut album release via Avex, L>R serves up a collection of tunes that demonstrate the ability of the soulful songstress to embrace a broad variety of styles. From wistful piano-led ballads to edgy electropop numbers and a selection of R&B along the way.
The album is also the culmination of a slightly circuitous route through the music industry for Raychell. Originally debuting under the name of LAY, she released her debut single ‘Kono ai de aruyouni’ in 2010 which was followed by double single release ‘Smiling’/’Flower’ (the former featuring as the end theme for the anime version of Tamagotchi).

PERFUME are to switch venues for their forthcoming London concert following demand.
The ticket sales for Perfume’s London concert scheduled for Friday 5th July were overwhelmed, resulting in the tickets selling out almost within an hour of being on sale. As a result, Perfume have today announced that they are switching from the O2 Academy Islington (capacity 800) to the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire (capacity 2,000).
The 3-piece technopop outfit have been pushing their global presence steadily over the past year and this will mark their first concert appearance in this country. The trio are also performing in Cologne on 3rd July and Paris on 7th July.
Additional tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 26th April priced £20 (subject to booking fee) from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Ticket holders from the O2 Academy Islington booking will still be able to use their tickets at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

It’s clearly becoming MOMOIRO CLOVER Z‘s year as not only has their new album release 5TH DIMENSION topped the Oricon weekly album chart but their debut album BATTLE AND ROMANCE (originally released in 2011) has also returned to the charts and landed the No. 2 position.
This marks Momoclo’s highest chart position to date with 5TH DIMENSION selling over 180,000 copies in its first week. Holding both the No.1 and No.2 positions is also the first time such a feat has been achieved by a female group.
