Korean Indie Playlist: Check From It
Hi guise! Shorty Awards! Don’t forget to vote for us! We might actually win this one! We might be heading to New York! ERMAHGERD! Keep voting!
Glen Check – Leather
Man, what a FLIPPING fantastic chorus! And I don’t want to say “flipping.” I want to say a bad F word in that place (re: farting), because the song is just so awesome. Seriously guise. I haven’t heard it for the past few days, but I just hummed the chorus in my head and I got the feeling in my belly to go nuts dancing everywhere. Fortunately, we’re writing this blog post on Friday night, in our studio, right beside the Hongdae club district. Hell. Why am I even still writing this? TIME TO DANCE NAOOOO!!!
From the Airport – Colors
Ok, so, we know very little about this band. I think they just came out, but – right after this song came out – we got a bunch of requests for it. New bands usually don’t have that good a marketing push, I don’t think. So maybe they’ve been around before, or maybe there’s a good hype machine behind them? I don’t know. Either way, if they’re new or if they’re old, they’re cool, and we like this song. We’re fans of distortion in music. Not sure why. I like it when music sounds dirty. Clean vocals don’t really do it for us that much. So…yeah!
MC Sniper – I Can Do It
I just realized that we only talked about the symbolism in the video very briefly. Now, symbolism is something that can be interpreted in many different ways. For us, we saw the turtle as symbolic of sheltering yourself, turtling in, so to speak. If there’s an outside threat, hide in your shell. But this video is about taking a risk and getting out of your shell (in this case, off of your turtle). And the main character took the risk, even though his previous experience was very painful. Keep taking risks, keep being hungry. And, if everything works out, I think the final point of the video is that you can get your very own flying dog. Yep.
1) Take risk
2) Get flying dog
Side note: I’m a big Final Fantasy fan, and this song sounds perfect for a Final Fantasy cut scene. Probably best for Final Fantasy X, to be honest. Not sure why so many people don’t like that one. It’s my second favourite Final Fantasy next to VII. But, I digress.
Let us know what you think of the songs. Oh, AND IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY! WOOHOO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Sorry. That was shameless. Actually, I’m not sorry. I got the birthday happies. YAY!
