戸川純 Jun Togawa - 玉姫様 Tamahime-sama from the album of the same name. Happy #TogawaTuesday ! It’s been a long time since an artist has intrigued and impressed me this much. This is Togawa-Sama’s first solo album, and it really sets the tone of not being your average Pop singer. This album is in fact her darkest but definitely not her most unorthodox. And that’s considering her TV appearances at the time consisted of her in a dragon fly costume singing this dark song with a mysterious setting... and is actually entirely about menstruation. She did an amazing job of subverting expectations. Even though I’m just a #BakaGaijin who has to read translate her lyrics, I’m very impressed with her social and political commentary especially in her later writing. I could go on forever and I’ll likely post Jun many more times in the future, so let’s leave it there. Thanks again @skaramz for scoring me this original pressing.
