New song and “Mega Mix Movie” from capsule

Excited for the new capsule album? Well, Yasutaka Nakata and Toshiko Koshijima have just the thing for you – “Feel Again,” the first single off their 2015 album WAVE RUNNER, has been made available on iTunes, and the promotional video above features a mixture of “Feel Again” and three other tracks. The EDM sound of these new selections may be the final nail in the coffin for many former capsule fans, the ultimate indication that Nakata’s too far gone and that his once seemingly boundless ambition has been reduced to “wanting to be the Japanese David Guetta.” Anyone with such thoughts wouldn’t exactly be wrong, and there’s absolutely no way anything that sounds even remotely like this would be featured on this blog if Nakata was anyone else, but as CAPS LOCK found him harking back to his Shibuya-kei roots even on the album’s sole single “CONTROL,” there’s nothing to say that deep cuts from WAVE RUNNER won’t hold any similar surprises. There’s nothing to say that they will, either, but hope does indeed spring eternal.
