Neon Bunny “Oh My Prince”

 

Ok, this is awesome. We really, really, really are digging this song. Like, this is gonna go on our iTunes (if we can find it somewhere!) and then loop it like crazy. Or we’ll just play it over and over again on iTunes. Side note: does iTunes have a loop option yet? I know some of you kill the replay button on videos, and some of you have found a way around this. LET ME KNOW. This song needs that kind of treatment. Maybe it’s not your thing: but it’s SOOO our thing. It just dawned on us that it sounds like Yelle, a bit. Kinda. Funky electronic with a gentle girl voice. And it’s in a language that isn’t English! That might be it.

Anyhow, this is only the second song by Neon Bunny that we’ve ever heard, and we’ve loved both songs. Any other songs you’d recommend by Neon Bunny? I’m worried that we’re missing out on some other life-changing songs…

Ondahl “Similar Girl”

 

Ok, time to change up the pace and era a bit. Neon Bunny’s song was very 80s; this song, on the other hand, very 50s, except for the electric guitar, which I don’t really associate with the 50s. Is it a part of the 50s? Our music history is kinda weak.

Anyhow, am I the only one that hears Sweet Caroline in this song? All I could think of is “Where it began/ I can’t begin to knowing” You know. The beginning of the song. Not the hands touching hands part. I don’t hear that here. Ah! We always hear lots of other things in songs. I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing or not. Let’s just call this a Neil Diamond/Spoon mashup…with Tubas!

The Koxx “Love Dance”

 

Hey Ryan. Here we are writing to you two weeks in a row for our K Crunch Indie segments. Anyhow, just wanted to say thanks for the request. We totally let this video slip through the cracks when we were on vacation. That whole month is a bit of a void for us. Anyhow, that’s not the point. Point is: thanks Ryan for two awesome song suggestions. We totally forgot about the Koxx after we talked about them long time ago. I thought they did something with 4Minute, didn’t they?

Anyhow, we’re really quite impressed with this song and video. We love how they shake their heads to the music. The editing’s great for that. But the song itself is just such a great balance between hectic and smooth. It’s a great, great song, and supposedly they’re awesome live. One of these days we’ll see them live. ONE OF THESE DAYS!!!

  1. RYAN!!! Did you go to Hongdae this weekend past??!! Have you seen this?: http://instagram.com/p/PXNZvAoym9/ *SPAZZING* xD

    • It’s Tablo’s photo, of Mithra and Hyunsong in Hongdae last weekend. In other words, Epik High was chilling in Hongdae, with the Koxx….either just for fun or for possible collaboration purposes (!!!) This makes me very excited. :D

  2. Just thought I’d leave this here…….

    • Yay!! (●ゝω)ノヽ(∀<●)

      Hmmm…they were planning on starting a Jpop segment at one point, but unfortunately I don’t think that’ll happen for a while – they don’t have the time :( It’s a shame because Japan is full of so much weird and creative music and videos (and I’m not talking about the idol groups here).

  3. Really love the songs for this weeks indie playlist, Neon Bunny and The Koxx are totally awesome, does anyone know where u can buy them in Australia?

    Btw you (Simon and Martina) were mentioned in SBS PopAsia’s fb page http://www.facebook.com/sbspopasia

    in reference to a poll about the vid u made about Gangnam Style

  4. It’s for the people who watch it via YouTube, which is the vast majority :)

  5. I thought trombone too, maybe French Horn?  

  6. i thought the ondahl song sounded very…. i guess i have to call it korean beatles, because the beat combined with the tone of his voice [and the syllable pattern] was just very mellow beatles

  7. …Belle and Sebastian! 

    Are what the Koxx sound like to me, XD.

  8. I love Neon Bunny! She reminds me a bit of The Bird and the Bee. If you can find her albums “Seoulight” and “Happy Ending,” they’re filled with great songs. I like all of them, but you should check out “Plastic Heart” and “Long-D.”

  9. I was sure that Ondahl’s song was going to be my favourite this week, and then Koxx came on……guess what’s gonna be blasting out of my car for the next month. :p

    On a side note….my brain is practically crawling in the gutter tonight. You probably didn’t even mean anything, but here I am giggling away…..*sigh*

    Everytime someone points at me, I try to bite their finger, but I’ve never quite managed it. Congrats, Martina.

    Ryan, dude, I think we’ll always be in a envyer – envyee relationship. You live on the roof a a building in Seoul (doesn’t it get cold at night? :S), see cool indie bands regularly, and have very sober conversations with Simon and Martina. Hhhh.

    This video kinda represents them quite well. Forgetting to pull up the handbrake when urinating in random places? Hah. I really wanna meet the dude now.

  10. Hmm….on youtube, putting the same video in a playlist and playing it on loop often works. You get ads, though. 
    In windows media player, i just put it in a list by itself and play it on repeat.
    I don’t use iTunes.
