Rina Sawayama - SAWAYAMA (Debut Album)

  1. Imagine that cover art on vinyl though... give us a 12" single, mother.

    Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not art x

    Also the "tentacle porn" visual trope has its origins in art that far predates modern hentai (NSFW: The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife).

    EDIT: oops, beaten by Mindtrappa

  2. Haaa, yeah. I imagine she’s reclaiming the image of being overtaken, standing above this sea of half men with tentacle hands instead of laying there helpless and objectified. It’s pretty powerful.
  3. That cover is phenomenal. Sweet Jesus.
  4. Hentai, yaoi and yuri are part of the japanese erotic art, they're not just "anime porn" . Hokusai's Dream of the Fisherman's Wife is a great example of this imagery and is an amazing piece of art.

  5. Oh lord, this very picture was used as a plot point in Cold Feet last night.
    Is the universe finally imploding in on it’s self?

    In other news, I’m very excited for what Rina has to give us on Friday.

    Her videography is so strong already, she's such a visual artiste - I'm so perched.

  9. Didn’t even know this was a thing because she addressed it so fast

  10. I didn’t realise there was a backlash to the clip. My friend DM’d me the notes app tweet and I thought she was apologising for old tweets or something. Anyway, I’m glad she’s clarified things for the fans that were upset and offended.

  11. She’s so intelligent, and well-spoken. Knowing she thinks through every aspect of her career is so beautifully refreshing.
  12. Yeah I did see the hair in the clip and was a bit iffy about it. I’m glad she acknowledged it and it was a very sincere apology but I hope she’s a bit more mindful in the future to avoid any offence that could be made.
  13. Rina's a queen. Of course she, of all people, knows what she's doing.

    The cover is a serve, but I was kinda hoping she'd keep the name on the side / title on top thing she's had for the two singles?
    As for the tracklist... Snakeskin as the closing track? To leave us bopping and wanting more? ññ queen
