Help Big Phony Fund His 6th Album

I’m a big fan of Big Phony. I’ve had a lot of chances to meet him in person and talk music and random things and I can say he’s one of the nicest person I’ve met. If you’ve heard his songs before, you know his singer-songwriter style is...

Oh Hee Jung (오희정) : Freckles

Oh Hee Jung (오희정) : Freckles

It’s been a couple years since Oh Hee Jung‘s last release Set Adrift. Out of nowhere it seems, she released Freckles. Going back to her older releases and then hearing Freckles, it’s a natural progression of her style so far. It still uses electronic...

Love X Stereo : We Love We Leave Part 2

As someone who has been listening to Love X Stereo for a while now, I’ve always been interested in hearing how the band is progressing. We Love We Leave Part 1 was very much a re-introduction to the band with the EP featuring reworked versions of their older...

Dean : 130 mood : TRBL

Dean is an incredible artist. Whenever I listen to his music, I can never find something I dislike. The quality of his music is impeccable, just as 130 mood : TRBL is. A total of seven tracks make up the album, giving you almost a half-hour of R&B/Soul goodness....

Monkeyz (몽키즈) : Into Your Heart

It’s been a while since I listened to Monkeyz. I enjoyed their previous EPs and album, but with Into Your Heart it feels like the band has switched gears from a pop rock band to a more mellow band. I’m not saying the band has lost any of its style, but I...

Best of 2015 : Chris’ Picks

2015 was an interesting year in music. A good amount of bands returned with new music, some bands went on hiatus, and there were a lot of new bands to discover. While 2015 isn’t entirely over, I though it was time to put in my picks of my favorite albums of...
