If you haven't heard of Apollo 18 yet, boy you are missing out. Apollo 18's music is hard to define. It's a bibimbap of everything nice and rough. At one point, you want to bang your head in the air so hard your brain is about to pop out. Sometimes, you really listen to beautiful guitar strums and get a chill down your spine. It's got slow, fast, really fast, freaking insane, and everything nice. All of the band members come from a great background, each individual members being in a few of successful bands.

Two more albums to come from them - Blue Album and Violet Album. I'll upload the rest when I get a chance. Meanwhile, enjoy a live recording session of Corpse Flower.

A very belated update.

Hi! Whoever keeps track of this journal. It's been a while and I'm surprised I still get feedbacks over the years.

I haven't been keeping track of new songs, however I'll most definitely try to post whatever the music (only the good ones :) ) I encounter from now on.

Thank you for all your comments. They really cheer me up day to day.


DJ Soulscape - The Sound of Seoul

Artist: DJ Soulscape
Album: The Sound of Seoul
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Traditional Korean Folk, Vintage Rock, Soul, Funk, Everything pretty and nice

01. The Sound of Seoul

This is a requested song. This is a mash-up remix of DJ soulscape's earlier work. Running Time is a little over an hour, and personally I haven't listened until the end.
If you are in a nostalgic mood to hear some of the earlier Korean music (back in 70~80's) then this might be a good track to burn on your CD and blast on your car stereo!

One of my favorite electronica group! you might know them from their latest release "New Standard" album. I've heard few requests for this album, so I'm uploading this. If you are new to them, they play very upbeat, joyful, catchy electronic songs with cute vocal support featuring 'deb.' Just to let you know, deb is only a temporary vocal, not a staple member.

Jang Giha & Faces - Not Much Going On

user posted image

Jang Giha wa Olguldeul (Jang Gi-ha & Faces) has gained tremendous fame, after their single release of "Ssaguryo Coffee (Cheap Coffee)" in mid 2008. Indie Rock TV channel show EBS Space Gong-gam has presented their short 30 min show and their funky and weird dance moves grabbed the audiences' attention quickly and it did not take long enough for people to find about them over the internet. Their lyrics are quite unique compared to what we here from the modern day's music industry. Instead of cheesy love poems and sophisticated notions presented in today's music, their songs contain about the hardships of low-life students living the day with a cup of noodle and a can of cheap coffee. Also, Jang Giha's own unique philosophy of his view of life is deliciously melted into each individual songs.

Jang Giha & Faces have won the Album of the Year of 2008, presented by the Korean Music Award. They are the hottest band in Hong-dae area.

If you want to taste their songs before spending time to download, check out video links next to the songs.

Recently, I became obsessed with this show. For those of you who don't know, simply it's a show where all the international ladies gather around and talk about differences they have experienced living in Korea. It's freaking weird that non-Koreans are speaking Korean fluently and talking about how they can't last a single day without eating kimchi, but that's the reality here haha.

I left Korea when I was young, so I cannot quite recall how many foreigners I saw back in the day, but according to the show, there are at least over 100,000 foreigners living in S. Korea. Quite surprising.

Thanks to ahboo.wordpress.com, I got a chance to watch few episodes. I had no problem of understanding the show even though I watched it from 100th episode.

Broccoli Neomajeo (Brocolli you too) released their very first EP album in October, 2008. Unexpectidely, their catchy rhythm and heart-warming lyrics became the hottest issue in Hong-Dae indie scene. Broccoli Neomajeo returned with their first official album, Bopyunjeokin Norae (trans. Ubiquitous Song) with better recording quality and improved versions of their ep tracks.

I would say their songs are very unique, yet similar to what the korean pop industry carries. Their melody is somewhat musicians from 90's would have played, and this kind of longevity may have attracted lot of people. Because deep inside of their hearts, they miss the old tunes and restoration of good old times. Lot of songs are very soothing and poppy. Track 3 is my favorite because that track features a pop tune with a very cute rap.
