K Crunch Indie: Beat Rocket Underwear

Rocket Diary – Yahwa

It could just be me, but doesn’t this kinda remind you a bit of GD&TOP’s “Oh Yeah?” When the guitar kicks in for the first few seconds, I just wanna sing “OH YEAH! OH OH OH YEAH!” Both songs have that kind of chill and have fun kind of feel to them. Not sure why. Anyhow, we’re really digging this song and we hope you like it as well. Kinda feel like we need to make a mega sized Korean Indie playlist including a whole bunch of indie songs, rather than just doing three vids a week. No?


We’re not super crazy about this song, but it is something quite different that we don’t usually find in the indie scene. It has the feeling of Clazziquai, but with less bossa nova feel to it, and more rapping. I can’t remember the name of the track, but I heard another song by them that doesn’t have a music video, and I liked it a lot better than this song. It had a verrrry ethnic feel to it as well. Does anyone know what song I’m talking about? Anyhow, I haven’t really fallen in love with this band, but I’m gonna keep my eyes open for their other stuff.

We Got Underwear and Lots of Girls

I really hope that this song is up some people’s alleys. I know last week’s Turtle’s Swim Surprisingly Fast was a big hit with you all last week, because that song is so ridiculously cute and accessible. This song, though, is really long. It’s not even the full song. The video just abruptly cuts. And it’s not cute, or sing-a-long-y. It’s very moody music. But sometimes moody music is good, isn’t it? We love moody music. Kpop, we find, is upbeat and chipper, and good if you’re in the mood for it, but you can’t be in the mood for uppity pop music all the time, right? Some times you just want to zone out, stare out into the distance, or have some music in the background while you read. You know? Music like this, in our opinion, is perfect for it. We get it a lot in Western Indie music, but rarely in Korean Indie, so we’re really happy to hear this song. Yeah!

    You have no idea how many pictures of skimpy girls I had to skim through before I found that…..

  6. So I definitely enjoyed all three of the songs!

    About the last one, all I could keep thinking about while listening to it was what scene would it go to in a movie. It is very movie-esque. Anyone else think so?

    A couple scenes I imagined were like one were the main character is kind of in a slump, just kinda walking in the streets where everything but him is blurry and its gray tinted and all that good stuff. Or a scene could be one with a couple just kinda being lazy dazy, but more of like a remembrance scene after a breakup/death/whatever. 
    Or a scene used to show time passing quickly. Like, a skyline of a city, sun rising and falling, people and cars moving fast. Something like that.I don’t know, could just be me but its all I could think about.

  7. I am in love with We Got Underwear and Lots of Girls. Googling it now. I think I’m really digging shoegaze and I owe it to you for introducing it to me – since that other shoegaze song, umm, Swimming Doll. Yea. I’ll make sure to put it on my usb next time I go for a late night drive outback. :)

  8. Aaaaah I really liked this week, in fact I like all Indie playlists, but I have time now, so this is going to be a long post. lol. Brace yourselves.

    1. Simon and Martina, I love how you guys look this week :D
    Simon looks really handsome in that hat, in fact my mom was saying something similar the other day too….that you look younger with a hat on…and so does my dad….anyway….yea.
    Martina!! I love weird/interesting/relevant earrings too!!! ^o^ I have pencil&notebook earrings that I wear for exams, coathanger earrings when I do the laundry, car earrings when I go for a drive, sailboat&lifesaver earrings when I go to the beach…ahem. I digress. I also like the length of your fringe now, it felt strangely short before :/ My mother also appreciates the higher neckline of your top. Uh yea. She’s a conservative Asian mom and always comments on your deep necked tank tops, haha, and I tell her to get used to it, but she says you’re really pretty otherwise…..wait, not that it’s not pretty like that, it’s just she gets distracted from your face that way…..uh what am I saying….uh never mind. I like your top, especially the sleeves. Yeah! :p

    2. How do you manage to get me snorting every week with your playlist jokes? I was sure it was gonna get old, but you manage to catch me unawares every time. Even my sister who was eavesdropping started laughing randomly.

    3. Hey at the second video by Simon, wasn’t there a new background sound? Hold on let me just go back to it…yes, at the part when you said Martina is the coolest girl you know (that was really sweet by the way)

    4. Dexter reference!!! Woohoo!!! :D

    5. The first song was….nice….but probably the most normal out of the 3? As in, I’ve heard many similar songs before. I like it, though. But I lol’ed at the little boy on his tricycle who was staring at them. :p And perhaps the lead singer needs to stop picking his nose.

    6. When I heard the snippet of the second song, I really got a middle-eastern or bollywood vibe from it, so I was surprised when the song in its entirety sounded completely different. I loved it!! But I think Mrs. Banner McBannerson would not like it very much. And I can see why you said it was confusing – the scene where she killed the dude was unnaturally happy. Mmmmm. *furrows brow*

    7. Wow…..Simon when you started talking about going for a long drive with nothing in sight, I KNEW I was going to like the song. Reason being, I very frequently go for such drives, late at night (or early morning), by myself, along deserted rural highways where you can see nothing but the reflective bumps on the road and the occasional dead kangaroo….so romantic right….yes I’m emo like that. And YES I did love the song!! but why whyyyy did it cut off like so? >_<

    8. About mega-long indie playlists. That would be kinda nice too, perhaps? I've mentioned it before, but I've compiled all your indie suggestions into my own Youtube playlist, and listen to it on shuffle quite regularly. Like so: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL19839F260BD83162

    9. My mom REALLY liked Turtles Swim Surprisingly Fast from last week. It was so sweet hehe :D

    10. Another thought I had (although I don't think people would like it very much) – in order to give you more time to explore Korea and less sitting in front of the computer – is to work up a system similar to the alternating WANKs/FAPFAPs, but with music.
    For example, make 2 charts, the k-POP charts, and the k-EVERYTHING ELSE charts. And alternate every week. That way you don't need the Indie charts, and perhaps even get rid of the Kpop chart updates? Since most people check the charts anyway? I feel many kpop fans would not like this, but if a potential Jpop Music Fridays is in the works, just….something needs to be cut down….
    And then you'll have WANKs and FAPFAPs on Thursdays, alternating every week. And that would leave you with TL;DRs every other Wednesday, with perhaps another segment alternating with that? Or to cut it down even more, get rid of FAPFAPs altogether and alternate TL;DRs with WANKs?
    After all, you also have all your live broadcasts too, which you seem to do every weekish~
    Please don't get me wrong, I love, LOVE your videos, and I wouldn't mind watching them 24/7 (I practically already do). But, how shall I put it, as someone in the medical field, I am concerned for your health….and you're still so young….hahahaha I feel like a grandma now.
    I'm sorry. I didn't mean to dictate your life or anything. Just. I don't want you to be too overworked to actually have fun and enjoy what you're doing.
    Plus, rarity makes it more special no? No?
    If you think that was the worst idea anyone could have ever mentioned, tell me, and I will crawl into the wardrobe and reflect on my actions. :(

    That is all. You were warned that it was going to be long. I love y’all.

    Sincerely, a NASTY :p
