The Daisy : 사랑하나봐요

The Daisy : 사랑하나봐요

I decided to review The Daisy after listening to her OST “어떡하죠” from the drama Cheongdamdong Scandal. She has featured in other drama OSTs as well, singing “죽을만큼 보고 싶다고” from the drama My Dear Cat and “흔한 이별에 유난스러워서” from the drama...
전기흐른 (Electricity Flowing) : We Live By Night

전기흐른 (Electricity Flowing) : We Live By Night

It’s been a couple years since Electricity Flowing released Guilty Pleasure. I enjoyed the EP and it was nice to read that the duo have a new album. We Live By Night still contains the band’s fun electronic dance and disco sound, but the full length is...

아진 (Azin) : Développé

When I started listening to “级堡,” the first song on Azin‘s Développé, I thought I was listening to YUKARI. It was the first time that I heard two electronic artists sound so similar. Considering how far I’ve gone into the Korean electronic...

GRAYE (그레이) : Junk Pixel/Empty Space

GRAYE hasn’t been around for long, but he’s already made a name for himself with his nuanced and colorful electronic compositions. His music is complex but also accessible, which is an ideal combination. While his first mini-album Mon was catchy and almost pop-like,...

Listening to Soumband‘s Yeon, the first song “디오드레베” gives an immediate tone of folk and ballad. The introduction into the second verse then introduces a possible strong melodic pop rock sound. It’s apparent that the instrumentals follow...

Physical media are one of those things in my past and present that I’m on the fence about. I only keep certain books and CDs in my home if they hold emotional value, but will regularly throw away those that don’t; more often than not, I opt for the digital equivalent....
Echo and The Machine : New Walking

Echo and The Machine : New Walking

I know absolutely nothing about Echo and The Machine. The EP was classified under “Seoul” on Bandcamp and I previewed a couple of tracks before buying it. While it’s an electronic album, it sounds less of what I’m familiar with in terms of...

Flash Flood Darlings : Vorab and Tesoro

Flash Flood Darlings is a member of the label Young, Gifted & Wack, which is the home to some of the hippest and most exciting acts in Korea’s underground electronic scene. Flash Flood Darlings proves himself to be no exception with his first full album,...
Leetzsche (이상은) : Lulu

Leetzsche (이상은) : Lulu

The 15th album from veteran singer-songwriter Leetzsche, or Lee Sang Eun, Lulu brings a warm, introspective perfect-for-spring indie pop experience. Lee combines her resonant low timbre with an edginess that makes her album shine with the maturity that only one who...
