BEST INDIE PLAYLIST TITLE EVAR!

In case you’re new to this and wondering why our title is so crass, we usually take a word from each of the three videos we’re talking about in the playlist. In this case, we have Love Songs, 10cm, and Dickpunks. It’s so…perfect!

Also, if you’re wondering why we’re doing the playlist not in our homes, but with other people, here’s the story: we were at SeoulTube this weekend as speakers and workshop presenters. We did a workshop on playlists. Part of the workshop was to actually create one there. So…that’s what we did!

Well, we didn’t do it FULLY. We filmed the videos there, and showed everyone all of the boring stuff that goes on in the background, like the editing, uploading, annotating, info-box filling, etc. That stuff takes forever, a lot longer than the actual workshop would have been, so we told everyone that we’d edit it ourselves at home and then upload it later. Well, now it’s later! So here’s the playlist!

We wanted to include other people’s opinions, rather than just our own. So, hopefully you like this odd, slightly different Korean Indie Playlist. It’s different than our regular ones, since it’s other people’s opinions rather than our own, so we’re not really gonna make a blog post similar to the ones we usually do. But, we’ll post all of the videos people requested here so you can check them out!

10cm “Americano”

 

Dickpunks “After the Play”

 

J Rabbit “Love Songs”

 

Ok ok ok I knew we weren’t supposed to talk about the videos in this blog post, but I can’t hold back. WTF IS DICKPUNKS?!?!? That’s the…oddest name ever. I was expecting a heavy metal band, or a punk band at least. I was expecting leather jackets with spikes on them, and some angst/angry songs about the suckiness of the political system. But…this is like, gospel music. WTF yo? And supposedly older Korean women love this band, and they have shirts saying “I LOVE DICKPUNKS” But Dickpunks, on their shirts, is in two different lines, so the first thing you think of when you see an older woman with a T-Shirt reading “I LOVE DICK…PUNKS” is not gospel music. Someone please explain their name to us!

  1. Ok already just gone and bought 2 albums

  2. Instant J-Rabbit fan, that voice is amazing!

  3. IT’S RYAN!!! Hey Ryan!! *waves excitedly* :D

    Wow, this playlist is seriously so cool. I love it when other people are in your videos (not that I don’t love you two, you’re amazing, but it makes it more varied y’know? xD)!!

    Americano is their old hit, isn’t it? Although I do like this version. And it really seems as if their faces are 10cm away from the camera :p

    Dickpunks…is really not what I expected :/ I think I would have much rather heard punk rock or any rockish genre over what they sang, but that’s probably just a matter a personal preference. I see what they’re saying about the main leader looking ‘sexy’ or whatever – but I still prefer Guckkasten’s singer :p Btw what was that picture that appeared next to Ryan’s face at the end? A chubby Asian One Direction? -_-

    I only recognised BEG’s Abracadabra from J-Rabbit’s song (thanks Carla for the whole list!!) They really do have lovely voices :) And I’m sure I’ve seen that room before from their other videos lol.

    Overall that Seoultube thing looked really, really fun~ *O* Any Nasties here who were there? (other than Ryan?)

  4. Great playlist! It’s my birthday today (TOP is exactly two weeks older than me) and it was nice to have some new great songs to listen to. Loved the group introduction to the videos. They were all funny. Especially the blond haired guy with the 10 cm and DickPunks comments.

  5. I feel stupid that by the end of J Rabbit’s Love Songs that I figured out that they were using popular song chorus references…thingymabobbers…sigh. :3

  6. I Knew that I recognised more than one bit of that song!!! It is interesting how they made it all blend.

  7. I love all of these songs. Americano had alot of singalongability. I loved the video for Dick Punks but I cracked up at the ad for MAMA at the end. They did have a lot of Keyboard in it which I guess contributed to the “gospel sound, but they were far more eclectic than that. At some points it felt a lot more Elton John-ish. And J Rabbit sampled a bit from “Loving You” by Minnie Riperton. She has a similar pure tone to Minnie, just not the whistle register.

    It was also great having these different people offering their opinions and views. It was a nice change and some of them were really hilarious.

  8. Ah! Love Americano!
    My mind broke listening to J Rabbit’s Love Songs when she started singing Brown Eyed Girls’ Abracadabra. I did not see that coming!
