After a bit of a hiatus Buono!’s new single and first under their new record label Zetima (part of the Sony Music family) it’s once again reaffirmed….you can’t take the ham =)♥ out of Airiin or the helium =)♥ out of Momo. We should be so lucky~* that neither ever changes although if Momo still sounds like a red bull on helium @ age 30 i may have to revisit that thought a little (。ーωー。)笑！I was a bit surprised to see their move from idol label giant Pony Canyon whom over the years has represented a vast majority of idols and idol groups but with Zetima it just feels right also, sort of like the mother ship calling them home in a sense =). And that would explain the slightly pre~mature “best of” album release as it’s customary whenever a group changes label homes but despite the change to the production team’s credit Buono! remains as the Buono! we’ve fallen in love with and that also extends to the efforts put forth into their styling, sets and storyboards~.
My only concern is that there are no lingering effects from the label change as it would be devastating if they had legal struggles to deal with if say their previous catalog of songs became an issue if they were to appear on Zetima now instead of Pony Canyon =/….let’s hope none of that becomes an issue =).
I mentioned this awhile ago just how Airiin so much looks like a classmate of mine from high~school….Pamela and it’s pretty uncanny as you’d really think they were sisters if they ever stood next to one another (*´∀｀*) ♪。Airiin may have a slight edge in the sexy* department though…….and saying that may come back to haunt me i know xD. I used to call Pamela a dork because she was in band while she called me a dork because I was (still) am one :P. And as you watch the pv (which is just a bit below my bun* rant :P) the only beef I have with the styling here is what I sometimes consider to be the dreaded granny~bun look (;゜□゜)！！！．．．
…I mean the hair bun can be most stylish if done right and with the right look but most of the time it inevitably makes me think of the Warner Bros. Granny, you know the one who’s always catching naughty Sylvester trying to eat poor Tweety at the most inopportune of times :P.
I do though get the whole blue~collar mechanic thing they were going for and how I guess the bun can be relatable in that sense and even the song’s title with “weed” in it creates sort of a grungy feeling….butt but still it sometimes doesn’t suit youth all that well I think and in Momo’s and Miya’s case here all I can inevitably think about is that oh~so~famous phrase which goes something like……
…”will that be one giant bun?….
..or two?” Or was that supposed to be “will that be one lump or two?” and just oMG someone had fun ↑↑↑ with their PhotoShop…(^q^)! Okay that’s actually disturbing!!!
Anyway, the “Live at the Garage Ver.” music video is just below too and it’s rather like a “dance shot version” although it’s without so much of any dance choreography for the most part so it’s more like a “Rockin’ at the car show CM ver.” Does rather look like a car show mini~concert doesn’t it =)!!

Luscious golden~locks…..reminds me of Henkka (*´∀｀) ♥！
~Buono! “Zassou no uta” (Live at the Garage Ver.) pv~
~Buono! “Runaway Train” mp3~
~Buono! “JUICY HE@RT” mp3~
“Runaway Train” has wonderfully heavy instrumentation and Buono!’s trademark sound is most awesome here as they always seamlessly layer their melodic vocals over the heaviest of music creating quite the contrast while “JUICY HE@RT” has a rather retro~90’s rock sound…both good coupling with tracks with “Runaway Train” I think being the very best here~.
….and now the Buono! girls talk NASCAR gossip…..
…..I blame these thoughts on all of the cars in their pv♥ (^q^)!
