Wowaka’s First Full Album, “Unhappy Refrain” Crossfade Video
A video featuring previews of all the songs featured on “Unhappy Refrain” has been released! Read on for more info and videos.
First, if you still haven’t listened to the title song, here it is.
“Unhappy Refrain” will be a double album. The first CD consists of a collection of all the 10 songs wowaka’s uploaded so far on NicoNicoDouga, as well as 3 new songs, and one that had been released only on “Seven Girls’ Discord”. All of them have been newly mixed, as well as remastered by John Davis from the London Metropolis Studio, who worked with such popular bands as Arctic Monkeys, REM and Block Party. Some of them have also been re-recorded, with wowaka even going as far as to say they’re drastically different from the previous versions.
The 2nd CD is a collection of 7 remixes by well know doujin musicians and Ps, such as Captain Mirai, acane_madder, Toku and Dixie Flatline. Below is acane_madder’s remix of Rolling Girl, which is also an utatte mita.

Captain Mirai's remix is up on NND now too: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14440777
Thanks! I added it.
Isn't it "Ura-Omote" Lovers?
Ah, of course it is! I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that. Sorry, and thanks!
Good idea kurisuto, to write this up.
Anyhow I'm very excited about this album. Does anyone know if there is somewhere to buy his older albums from?
You guys have no idea how pumped I am for this. I ordered the First Press – which comes with a cover slip and a guitar pick – and putting those things aside, this album sounds amazing. Loving how all the songs are remixed.
I''ve preordered mine!
Just got this in today – love it. Nice tweaks to the existing songs, and Unhappy Refrain is a great song.
