I did not know there was a new CAPSULE album. Damn, what a bummer "Feel Again" is.

Y'all should check out BOMI's new album, Born in the U.S.A., though! It's out on iTunes in the US and I quite like it. Nice indie/electro-pop sound that's split up by weird/fun intermissions. The MV they have on YouTube is not my favorite song of theirs but you can go on their official website and check out "Mayday" and "フライデーナイトバタフライ". Good stuff.

@mb: Dang, really? Did you try reducing your draw distance? That's also a huge help.

@sharkethic: I think it looks pretty sharp. It's no Crysis but I dunno. S'alright.

So... I'm now getting something like 50-60 fps with everything back on high.

Someone on Reddit gave a quick fix for turning off the film grain and it bumped my framerate outdoors way, way, WAY up. Runs real well, now. So... you know, unless you're some real "moody" fella who likes his games grimey as the UK underground club scene, then that's probably your golden ticket until a patch is out.

Not at home right now but I have something like an i5-4670k, 8GB RAM, ATI R9 280X and I'm also getting real spotty performance. Clean 60 in the tutorial and as soon as I stepped out into the open world, the framerate tanked even when I dropped the settings off high. I've been reading that the view distance is what's killing the framerate most, so i'm gonna try droping that a few pegs tonight when I get home. My video card drivers were also wicked outta date so maybe that'll change something.

Sounds like yeah, people on Nvidia cards are getting better performance. If anyone here gets a good setup on their ATI card, I'd love to hear what settings you have on.

@atwa: That's great to hear!! :D I'm really hoping she releases something else this year.

@hampe: Thanks!! Yeah, the Anamanaguchi version is terrific but man, it's no "Pop It!"

@wemibelec90: Thanks :D It means a lot to hear that. And great to hear you're enjoying so much of the list! I'm not gonna lie, I think Suiyoubi no Campanella isn't for everyone—KOM_I's voice is... I don't know how to describe it really, but her vocal styling is maybe not something I think has broad appeal. At the same time, though, I think there is a song by them for everyone. For me, it was "Mothra", for my friend, it was "Marie Antoinette". Once of their songs clicks with you, it's the gateway to everything else they have to offer.

But I'm also fully willing to accept that for some people, they'll just never click with them and that's totally fine too, haha.

@wemibelec90: Thanks!! Though man, the end of Bird no Singing is so good! It's nowhere near as good as the last track but still, so good.

I'm not sure what tips to give other than just lookin' for it, to be honest. I follow a lot of musicians I like on Twitter and since most of them are indie, they often retweet/interact with other artists I haven't heard of yet. I also browse similar artists on sites like Last.FM a lot. You'd be surprised how far just randomly clicking around stuff like or Soundcloud can take you. Going through random similar artists is how I found out about Suiyoubi no Campanella and they're basically my favorite thing, now!

I used to rely on subreddits a lot but I've stopped doing that in an effort to not go on Reddit as much. Instead I just tend to poke around stuff like Korean Indie or labels themselves.
