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
3) ???
4) Profit.

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!

  2. I personally thought Leather didn’t make me dance as much as 84 or French Virgin Party or even Racket….but I still liked the song ^^
    And holy crap I absolutely love Colours! It’s sooo ahmazing :D
    The last song was so touching and inspirational ;__;

  3. I too loved XII enough to play it 3 times through. Grinding was wonderfully easy, because you could damage enemies and not all encounters were random. I had mixed feelings about the whole programming your allies thing. But the mechanic kept the flow of battle moving fast enough for it to never get truly boring and satisfied my strategy gaming habits. It was also in wonderfully open-world. Almost sandbox style.

    XIII’s graphics were really pretty and Lightning was cool, but XIII was very,very, linear in comparison to XII. the fact that much of the plot had to be read wasn’t cool either. The battle mechanics didn’t do it for me. I dunno if you played it in English, but Vanille’s voice was beyond cringeworthy. I wanted to scrub my brain out. Some character types and voices do not translate well from Japanese.

    TL;DR: XIII was so bad, I was scared away from XIII-2.

    I’m not surprised you like Glen Check. From what I remember you’re partial to any song with awesome cowbell rhythms right?

  9. Glen Check only made me bob my head. Does that count?

    I absolutely loved th MC Sniper song. The instrumentals were really pretty and the animation gorgeous. I did start to get a bit melancholy watching it though, because of Martina and her mentioning Avatar and Appa. Why you do this to me Martina? ;_;

    Can you find MC Sniper’s stuff on iTunes? I know he has his own label now, Sniper Sounds cause he just debuted a rap duo on it. Must go find out more about him.

    edit: oh and Happy Birthday Simon. Another year you get older. * sigh* live it up!

  11. Happy Birthday Simon. ^^
    Glen Check sounded…. very interesting. o.o I liked how it panned through all those posters/pictures and they moved and stuff. ^^

    *O* I really like From the Airport’s Colors. It sounds so cool and distortedly awesome. I dunno how to explain it.

    And nuuuuu why you gotta bring Appa up Martina? ; 3; Next time you guys should dye Spudgy with airbender arrows, I swear. o 3o Man I miss the old gang in Avatar..

    Anyways…. I really liked the animations for MC Sniper’s video. It did seem very dreamlike. I like the turtle xD and the flying dog with the sniper rifle. xD
