Apnea : ANA-042

Apnea : ANA-042

When I first saw the description for Apnea, it said “dubstep, DNB, rock, metal.” The mixing of electronic and rock isn’t anything new, but I was curious to hear how Apnea would incorporate dubstep into their music. The 2013 album is pretty...
Mot (못) : Ashcraft (재의 기술)

Mot (못) : Ashcraft (재의 기술)

Ever since their first album, rock band Mot has held their ground as one of the most distinctive and consistent musicians in Korean music. With their rhythmic unpredictability, aching dissonances, and eAeon’s tearful, wounded voice, the group’s music serves well as an...
Crush : Interlude

Crush : Interlude

Interlude is the perfect name for Crush‘s newest EP, as it is a bridge between his first full-length album Crush On You and his upcoming unnamed sophomore album (which I heard is to be released sometime this fall). This album has a total of five tracks however;...

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...
