What Women Want “Curious”

 

You know when you try to describe the sound of a song using another song as an example and no one knows what you’re talking about? Well I just totally had that happen with this song. I have no idea how to explain what genre of music this is, but I love it! It’s like funky groovy sexy music which I’m pretty sure isn’t a genre. From a musicians’ perspective, I’m not sure if it’s an insult, compliment, or totally neutral feeling to be compared to another musicians song. Any musicians out there care to answer this question? Of course not in a, “you copied them” kindof way, but in a “it reminds me of…” kindof way. As for the band What Women Want, this is their first single and I’m very excited to hear more from them! GO GO GO!

BIZNIZ “Get Wet”

 

Ok, I gushed over this song in our talk about it, so I don’t need to say that much more here. It’s an awesome song. Doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the playlist, but it seems like we talk about it in every Indie Music Playlist that we do. If anyone’s got any more suggestions for awesome K Hip Hop like this, send it here! We’re really into jazzy, boom-bap kinda hip hop, if you can’t tell by now. Lately we’ve been listening to a lot of jazzy hip hop on Sunday mornings while we cook breakfast, but it’s been mostly old school hip hop and R&B like Tribe Called Quest and D’Angelo. It’s nice to update our music with some new music and even cooler that it’s from Korean artists. WOOHOO!

Lim Kim “Rain”

 

We actually like this so much that we bought the album. In fact, we bought two of her albums. It’s great background afternoon music. Not too uppity, perfect for lazing about, but still upbeat. We listened to Lim Kim this week (since we overdid our hip hop selection) and it was totally lovely cooking music. She has another song I like just as much as “Rain”, it’s called “Alright” and although it isn’t a slow song it’s really freakin catchy and the video is super cool. I pretty much went on a Lim Kim binge and looked up all her stuff and watched all her videos and they’re all awesome. I think you’ll be hearing more of her on our playlists soon! Thanks for the request Maria!

  1. Oh my God YES! The Ghibli feels! I love that scene from Spirited Away.
    “Curious” What a lovely song! And that video rhaaaa, at the end I was like “Go with him! Walk him there damnit!”
    “Get Wet” Hum that title. Enjoyable, but I would get tired of it pretty quick.
    “Rain” Oooh that song’s so cute! I listened to “All Right” as well and I loved it. Thank you!

  2. You guys should check out Vanilla Acoustic if you haven’t yet!! :) Their song Need to Talk (대화가 필요해) is so great^^

  3. Get it Wet was the first K Hip Hop song I’ve actually enjoyed. I’m going to go in search of more Bizniz songs!

  4. Was Lim Kim in Shut Up Flower Boy Band? If not her voice sounds a lot like the person who sang the songs for the female idol in that show… I really like this kind of voice, don’t know what to call it….?

  5. And another song you need to listen to: (I’m trapped in a K-INDIE vortex! HELP ME!)

  6. How do we request? I found awesome k indie songs, unfortunately I don’t know of any official MV :( I like Misty Blue! Can any one direct to me to an MV? Here’s the song I like

  7. “when the train goes through the meadow in Spirited Away” Oh god, I thought I was the only one who got feels over that!

  8. Guys!!!!! You need to listen to this song. It’s so awesome! “Zoo”- Primary

  9. I love the sound of that Bizniz song! I would download it right now except…Son of a Monkey Nut! It is not on iTunes! *facedesk* Some of their other songs are, so I guess there is hope it will be up there at some point. Never know though since iTunes in the US is still missing several Girl’s Generation songs. :(

  10. I’m a huge fan of Lim Kim <3 I'm so happy you reviewed her song! I've been obsessed with her album A Voice for a while now<3

  11. Also, I agree with Simon. The more I get into K-Indie and other types of Korean music, KPOP doesn’t fascinate me as much,. Maybe because it’s becoming normal for me now? I don’t know! *confuzzedpuddle*

  12. I feel really special because this week I actually know 2 out of the 3 songs already!!! *spazzbragdance*. I really love the video for “Curious” and “Rain” and I really, really love Lim Kim’s voice (was she on Shut Up Flower Boyband??). BIZNIZ is awesome. That is all.

  13. Omg I love Lim Kim I found her out through Running man :D And the other two songs were awesome as well~

  14. HIIII I have a request! I don’t want to do a video so I hope you take requests here too! It’s for the song From Me to You by Joo Young, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgBHJHLfQro It’s his only MV so far and I discovered it randomly when it came out and was totally blown away by his voice. It’s the softest, smoothest, nicest voice I have ever heard, and the song just matches it perfectly. I’ve been obsessing over this guy since this came out and I and all other Joo Young fans are desperately awaiting his comeback. I assure you you won’t be disappointed by this guy. (If you want to check out his other stuff, he has a single called Same as You and an EP called From Me to You.)

    • Hey, we’ve talked about him before! Back when I had him as my user pic. You suggested we do a request for him, and I’ve been thinking about it since then… but I don’t wanna do a video (because my channel name is my real name and I don’t want that to pop up anywhere) so I finally decided to just make this simple comment request. It’s been a long time coming, but here it is :) I hope they include him in their Indie segment sometime!

  15. First, I know exactly which Lenny Kravitz song you’re talking about. Second, I’d call that What Women Want song Jazzy Soul. I just keep running into songs in that vein this week. Like this one that I’ve been playing on repeat non-stop. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOKz_Qo94Lk

    Yes that was my not so slick method of promoting it. That kind of jazzy cool, soulful music is perfect for beautiful clear blue skies, cool Fall weather.

  16. I think the K-Indie updates is also for ‘cool stuff that will never get onto the first page of the KMM charts’ :p

  17. The EYK Kpop Chart actually has Indie and hip-hop on it too; since it’s basically whatever people submit. Unfortunately it rarely gets voted up enough to even get onto the first page. You’re more likely to find them if you sort them by date:

  18. Hey guise :)

    Lovely playlist! (except for the second song… not so lovely…)

    “…jazzy hip hop on Sunday mornings while we cook breakfast…” don’t think this is jazzy… but I think it would be awesome for morning :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGPQn1RJfuk

    I actually found about Lim Kim in “Shut Up Flower Boy Drama” and loved her since Two Months (투개월).I’m pretty sure they’re still around, just that her singing partner went abroad study (I think).

    Good night (for later) >:D:D< :-* (this is my good night song recommendation :D … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGKZDSdhFrk )

    <3<3<3<3<3<3

  19. YESSSSS WELCOME WELCOME THE THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF KOREAN HIP HOP!!!!! *~*~(^o^)/~*~*

  20. Did you guys get my K-Indie video request I sent you guise a few weeks ago? YT name: yijern

  21. YES! I just got into Lim Kim and I like her song Voice a lot. Her entire album is so awesome, sometimes it’s chillingly calming, if that makes any sense.
