Have You Listened To Them Yet?: [5th – 23rd Oct 2014]

Disclaimer: All posts are just containing my OPINION. I don’t mean to offend. I mean to give only my honest feedback. Also, I do not listen to every song, although I try to. (I might have missed them or the site may not have posted on it. The ‘Discovered’ section exists for this reason.)

By the way, this link here is for those who wish to look at (almost) every song that came out in each week. Since I don’t like EVERY song that comes out, I thought the Soompi tag should reflect a better picture of the releases. 😀 Two other links here may help too: LINK #1 , LINK #2

Mann, the start of October is already this exciting with Epik High, Gaeko and Ha Dong Qn’s comebacks! Joining in are Roy Kim, Younha, Gummy, Lena Park, Suju, G.O.D & Crucial Star (well, he’s from C-JeS Ent…) from the mainstream side and Suki, Loptimist, 20 Years of Age and Urbanspace from the Indie/Underground counterpart. And even though this isn’t the finest time to debut, super rookies Bernard Park, Purfles & Almeng held their own in the face of such competition. 🙂

Epik High produces a masterpiece of an album in <Shoebox>, showing that the trio are capable of both sentimental and dope Hip-Hop. Moreover, Epik High deserves praise for hand-picking the right vocalists and rappers. As for the album, I can’t pick a favourite –  because every track was just GENIUS. If you need an introduction to the trio’s album, here you go: Raise The Curtain (Mid-tempo Hip-Hop Soul), ‘Happen Ending’ (ft Rollercoaster’s husky, deep vocalist Jo Wan Seon – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad; the 70s-influenced beats are so nostalgic/bittersweet.), ‘Rich’ (ft Big Bang’s Tae Yang – Urban mid-tempo Hip-Hop), ‘Spoiler’ (melancholic low-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; lyrics were impressive – love the link between the title and breakups | Kim Ji Su looks like a cross between Clara and Yewon – pretty!..And that 95er(!!!) male model Kim Kibum >.<), ‘Burj Khalifa’ (ft Yankee, DD’s Gaeko – Urban Underground Hip-Hop Dance), ‘Fighting Again’( ft Younha – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad – will Younha do another remake? Hahahaha; the resignation in Younha’s voice makes her a good candidate for such blue tracks..), ‘Amor Fati’ (ft Nell’s Kim Jong Wan – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; oh this is just so raw & beautifully intense), ‘Born Hater’ (Mid-tempo Electronic Hip-Hop Rap featuring a rap line-up of Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Mino, Bobby and B.I; liked how they each had their own vent session with their rhyme time. …And with the standard dose of curses – what else? – but they ended it adorably with a ‘nono’…so I’ll forgive them for B.I’s sake 😛 ..and on Verbal Jint’s account – cos he seemed so awkwardly endearing in the MV. And that was icky Tablo – I’m a born hater of roaches. >.<) , Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

Ballad quartet Tritops sings a mid-tempo Ballad for <Golden Cross>. Somewhat typical, but the chorus and Tritops’s vocals (<3) are excellent together. Interested in Tritops?

Superstar K3’s Shin Ji Su (her smile <3) and Crucial Star perform a live version of ‘Show Me Your Light’ through 1theK’s youtube channel. The mid-tempo Hip-Hop and RnB collaboration track has an understated quality which might not satisfy everyone. Great choice of both rapper and singer.The lyrics are also something to look out for. 🙂 Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

playlistSinger-songwriting-sibling-duo Akdong Musician (AKMU) debuts with their triple-title-song Acoustic album . First up is ‘200%‘ , a delightful Acoustic-Pop. ‘200%”s sweet simplicity makes it easy to like, while the creative, endearing MV paces perfectly with the song. This should appeal to anyone, including papa YG. [Just look at papa YG smile during their double-title-debut stage on KPop Star 3.] ( So embarrassed for Su Hyeon. And she was like next to him?!!>.< )But it was pretty funny watching the director say she had it in her for the role.  LOL. ‘Cos it’s true.

Recommended Songs

1. Jin Woon of 2AM and Star Love Fish released ‘Words I Couldn’t Say’ for the Strawberry X-treme Festival. The music event will see performances from the hip-hop, rock and acoustic genres. ‘Words I Couldn’t Say’ sounds better with the band music than in the acoustic version. Though the starting for the song was boring, it became better once the band started playing, reminding me a little of Nell’s recent title song, ‘The White Night’. I seriously couldn’t tell where Jinwoon sang. Heh
