Verbal Jint “Walking in the Rain”

 

It’s Verbal Jint featering Bumkey with their song “Walking In the Rain” which I feel should be called, “Dancing in the Rain” or “Fondling People in the Rain” or “Driving in the Rain”. A song with the word walking in it sure had a strong lack of walking. Maybe “staring in the rain while I watch other people breakdance like pros” would work. Or perhaps, “standing under an umbrella looking semi-emo while you walk away in inappropriate rain shoe gear while I kick an innocent pop can that didn’t deserve to be kicked”. I think those are all excellent song title names. Anyhoo, it’s funny this video should come out because I was just telling Simon I really want to do a W.A.N.K or F.A.P.F.A.P during monsoon season where we just blatantly ignore the fact that it’s pouring rain and we just do normal stuff without an umbrella. I never should have talked about that idea out loud because it’s clear to me that the video producer of this video stole it. Obviously. Oh right, there was a song with this video! I actually liked this song! I don’t like it as much as I like Zion T and I think I know why. My friend Whitney heard it playing and said, “oh that’s got a kind of R.Kelly or 112 feel to it” and I’m not really into R. Kelly while I am into D’Aneglo. So I think I figured out what kind of of R&B I like, and it’s in the separation between R&Bish ballad songs and R&Bish jazzy hip hop. I defintiely like jazzy hip hop a lot more than just ballads. So that, for example, is why I love B.A.P’s “Coffee Shop” which feels more jazzy to me while I didn’t like “Rain Sound” which felt more ballad-like to me. Oh and this is Martina speaking if you couldn’t tell by now. Hi! Martina here. *does a dance*

Dynamic Duo “Baaam”

 

Next up is Dynamic Duo featuring Muzie with their song “BAAAM”. Now this song has the kind of jazzy feel to it that I was talking about, but still not jazzy enough for me. Zion T what have you done to me!!?? But nonetheless, still a great song. If I had one complaint it would be that they didn’t use that awesome little riff by Muzie enough in the song. I would have liked to hear it as a part of the chorus rather than just a breakdown near the end. It really had a Daft Punk feel to it and I like when hip hop songs surprise me with additionally out of the hip hop box sounds. Also, Leigh and SooZee are big hip hop fans and they both like Dynamic Duo a lot. In fact, I feel like next week we need to push SooZee into making a k-indie update with her Korean hip hop choices. Put pressure on Soozee guise! Tweet harass her. Haha, just don’t let her know I sent you. ^^

Copy Machine “Rodeo”

 

Last up is a request for SKA! SKA! SKAA!! It’s Copy Machine with their song “Rodeo”. Wow I haven’t listened to ska in a looonnnng time but man, did I miss it when I heard this. Ska is always a very chipper upbeat kind of thing to listen, you never leave it feeling sad. I fondly remember blasting Goldfinger in my car while driving down the street in high school after a really great day. It’s hard to feel depressed when listening to ska music, and here we have yet another chipper song. As I mentioned in this video, I’m not sure if this band is still together since I haven’t heard of them before and this video is from 2010, so if any of you know about them, I’d love to hear it. I tried a quick google but both their name and title of song are so popular I couldn’t find anything on them as a band. If they are still together, they’d probable be a super fun band to see in person. We had the chance to see the super fun punkish/skaish SuperKidd live (who we reviewed with their “Feel Good” song for our first Indie playlist EVAR) and they were super fun as well, and I kind of feel like these guise are up the same alleyway.

  1. I have to really thank Simon & Martina for making this segment because it’s introduced me to a lot more indie bands :3

    I’m really loving Walking in the Rain and the feel of the song <3

  2. woohoo! Simon (kinda) answered my TLDR question about how often do you see celebs! Soozee so lucky! She got to see Dynamic Duo?! cool cool! Did anyone thought they sang “bad girls gone better”? then.. i saw “BADDER”… sigh…

  3. Totally one of mine too from my teens…still play that album till this day. Also I loved for Gwen embracing her tomboy sexy side.

  4. The theme for Kpop thus year and maybe even Indie is “Bad Girls”…and Dynamic Duo continued this theme with “Baam.” I’m all for bad girls being celebrated but what about the good girl? I feel ‘good girls’ are being neglected like ‘nice guys’ usually are……I would love to see a rap called “Good Girl…” I wonder what it would feature?

  5. I don’t know about the WANK music, but the TL;DR intro music is Eric Bieschke’s One (at the 1:00 mark). I about had a heart attack the first time I heard it!

  6. HAHAHA! Martina I totally know what you mean by skanking to ska. Use to skank every Friday night when I was younger (whoa, that does sound wrong). It wasn’t till much later that I realized that skanking is basically the running man backwards. Man I’d probably hurt myself if I tried it now.

  7. Thank you for clarifying that it was an Infinite cameo, I felt nutty trying to figure out who they were. I knew they looked familiar but since I don’t know Infinite that well I couldn’t figure out who it was :)

  8. This is such a cool video and is that Poppin Hyunjoon at 1:38 he is an amazing dancer  in Verbal Jint mv

  9. Whoooooo, ska! “Rodeo” was really catchy, and she was absolutely right about the number of syllables in “everybody.”

    I don’t know what skanking is, either, but I also can’t remember the last time I went to a club. (Hint: never. :P)

  10. Soozee saw Dynamic Duo??? COOOOLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i love Baaam!!! awesome song!!!

    ahahaha i had no idea Infinite were in the video until i saw people post comments on it!!
    when i first saw them i just thought ‘why is there a bunch of out-of-place dudes here?’ and then i saw the comments and though ‘oooohhh….’ awkward!

  11. Simon and Meemers were dancing to Walking in the Rain in the Vine video you posted right?
    I love how relaxed Meemers looked, I wish our cat was like that.

    Love this week’s playlist. I’m with Leigh and SooZee with loving more of the Hiphop stuff. SooZee should definitely make a playlist one week! Ryan should also finish his playlist after he stole the Gaeko request and the numerous requests he’s made! xD
    I love Verbal Jint’s Walking in the Rain, I’ve been playing it all week, along Dynamic Duo’s new album Luckynumbers! Did you notice the cameo by Infinite in BAAAM? The awkward club scene?

    wait so I’ve listened to Ska before and didn’t know it was Ska? :O Cool I like that song, and Noonapan’s request was really cute. Not sure why you would think she’s a bear 0.o but alright. I loved the pictures she used, they made me laugh while watching it. Especially the ‘real big fish’, ‘the mighty mighty bosstones’, ‘witches’ and ‘SHINee’! hahaha so good!

  12. A great list, will have me dancing into my day…..even though it’s rainy here in Ontario too……….
