Cheese “Mango”

 

Ok, so this is the coolest video of the year. Hands down. This is made for YouTube. This is gold! Cheese is a new group, supposedly. They’re under the music label Real Collabo, and consist of producers MOODI and CLOUD(구름이), vocalist 달총이 and rapper ASU (야수). Woohoo! You see that! We got actual info in these blog posts now, rather than just our ramblings. We usually just blather on, but we’d like to be able to provide some useful info from time to time. More useful info: you want to buy their album: I know! It sounds like it’ll be great! It’t not out yet, though. It’ll be released early May, supposedly. Anyhow, I hope they keep on making songs and videos like this, because I can see us becoming best friends with them as a result.

Rock’N’Roll Radio “Shut Up And Dance”

 

Supposedly, according to Ryan – who you might see in the comment section here from time to time, as well as in our videos – he told us that you indeed can see this band at many indie clubs around Hongdae. We’ve never actually seen them live ourselves. Bad luck, maybe? Or it could be just because we don’t go out as much as Ryan. There was a silent disco yesterday, and we missed it because of date night. If we weren’t married we’d have gone! Ah! Anyhow, Ryan’s providing us with more info about these bands, so big thanks to Ryan for the help. Supposedly this band was picked through a contest to join the Ssamzie Music Festival in 2012, which…we also didn’t go to. DAMMIT WE WERE PROBABLY ON ANOTHER DATE NIGHT! Date night’s my excuse for everything from now on

Oriental Lucy “Did You Come?”

 

Ryan tried finding info about this band, but it wasn’t easy. It looks like they’ve disbanded, maybe? They have a CD that they released in 2008, but since then, it doesn’t seem like there’s that much. Too bad, because – though we did have a chuckle at the name of the song, which is only sexual in English terms – we actually liked this song. We like haunting music, not just upbeat fun stuff. Tim Hecker we play the hell out of, and I’m sure some people are gonna be like “who’s Tim Hecker” and then look it up and be like “man, S&M, you listen to some weird isn man. Weird isn.” Oriental Lucy isn’t on that same level of weird isn, but it’s got the potential to go that route, if they still make music, that is.

  2. Rock’N’Roll Radio “Shut Up And Dance” ..I recieved a feeling similar to The teenagers….or was it just me?

    the last one blown my mind I wan an oriental lucy monostone…

  3. Yeah, bought 만고. Really well written, performed and produced song. I got the album, too. Gonna check it now….and the rest of the songs on your list…hehe…

  5. Can you guys review Mad Soul Child’s Breath

  6. LOVE the song and the cats just made it that much better. My Timmy was jealous. He wanted a cameo. The song is so damn fun tho!

  7. TheArrowPen

    …absolutely no idea what “Did you come?” is supposed to mean. Anyway, Cheeze’s video was epic! Cats! Lasers! More cats! Pixels! Whooo!

    OMG…CHEEZE MV was AH-MAZING!!! I also dug the smooth feel of the song as well….I think a not so subliminal message was embedded in that video because now I want to play some Little Big Planet or create a level in Little Big Planet with giant cats…does little big planet even have giant cats as an option in build phase…oh it would be glorious.

  9. That cheese video reminded me of one of my favourite videos ever, Dillon Francis – Bootleg Videos. Its SUCH a shit video, but theres something about a potato with Dillon Francis’ face dancing around in 80’s videos that really sticks with you.

    Also, if you’re into Rock n’ Roll Radio, check out a band called Maserati. Their old stuff has a similar vibe.

  10. I am so in love with Cheeze right now. Thank you so much for this recommendation! They remind me a bit of Clazziquai Project, in the best way possible, of course. It’s peppy without being too peppy. I love how on iTunes they describe their genre as “Korean Folk Pop” :P

  11. :( :( :(

    We scrambled to put together a request for Cheeze’s video AS SOON AS it came out, but I guess you guys didn’t see it.

    Glad to see your enthusiasm for the CATS and LAZERZ was at least as high as ours though!

  12. OK. I just bought the Cheeze – Recipe album on itunes … if you liked the single Mango, you’ll love the full album …

    K-Indie has helped me find some awesome artists.

    1. Neon Bunny

    2. Clazziquai Project

    3. Standing Egg

    just to name a few (there’s heaps more I just can’t think of now) and now Cheeze … keep it up guys

    Cheers!!!

  13. Anyone from The Netherlands? I should make a request but I never discover bands…hmm.

  14. I wonder if Meemers likes this vid lol

  15. YAY! Indie TIME! I loved Cheeze! the song is so light and fun! It’s my favorite out of this week’s playlist! I also liked Oriental Lucy, it’s haunting yet sassy. It’s too bad they don’t make music anymore, or so it seems <_<

  16. Anyone else start thinking about Sunny Hill at the beginning…? I demand a “Love Actually” parody!

    I heard Cheeze’s song this past week on Arirang’s radio show Super Kpop.

    that Cheeze video is just awesomeness!!!!!
    having cat overlords doesn’t seem THAT bad….it looks like they just like to laze around for most their time!!
    hehe i spot the same vinyl toy Taemin had in the ‘Hello’ mv which you guys called an alien before…i think!!

  18. profuse thankfulness commencing now

  19. K-INDIE TIIIIIIIME!!!
    Seriously guys if you live in Korea you gotta get out there and see some awesome bands when you can!! You will more than likely see me there haha. For instance Rock’N’Roll Radio are currently doing the rounds every weekend at many different clubs. Check out their FB page here to see their upcomming shows https://www.facebook.com/RNRRPAGE?fref=ts

    I’m really excited to hear more from Cheeze when they come up with their new album “Recipe”. hopefully they will come out with more awesome MVs like this… might be hard to top though! Here is a link to their

    Oriental Lucy was one of the first bands I found on YouTube about a year ago and like Simon said… they do have a bit of an older sound but something about their sound is still enjoyable as they are pretty unique with their drawled out synths and funky beats

    I want more… must find more music to share… MUST FIND MOOOOOORE!!!!

    (PS) thanks S&M for the honorable mention :D

    Peace out!
    EYK 4 LIFE YO!

      Hey ! For Rock’n’Roll Radio, do you know any site where I can buy their album ? I had a crush on this band, please help me (>.<)

      • I would love to tell you but Im having a hard time myself. nothing on iTunes and their record label HIP SQUARE doesnt seem to be very active. Ill let you know more info when it comes to me

  20. Ahhh i haven’t watched an Indie playlist in AGES. Allow me to confirm what someone else has stated that Cheeze’s album IS OUT on iTunes however it took me some finding because google wouldn’t tell me the name of it when i went searching for more info and OF COURSE its called Recipe so just be assured its an awesome album and download it from iTunes. Don’t do what i did being curious about it and google it because i just got cheese recipes ¬__¬
    Second song from Rock’N’Roll Radio was just awesome :D
    I am sure i will like the third one when i am in the mood for that particular sound sadly today is not that day :(

  21. I was just about to turn off the computer so I only came to se CHEEZE (with a “Z”, there’s a misspelling in your description, just saying) and OMG KITTIEEEEEEEES!!! Everything that has cats in it gets extra points from me. And the song indeed was nice :) You guise like video games style, don’t you? Makes me wonder if you liked Junior Senior’s “Move Your Feet”…
    Gotta go, I’ll watch rest of the playlist later.

  22. Wow, Shut up and dance sounds like something I could hang out listening to at some random bar/club all night. lol Love it!

  23. But Cheeze’s album is out, I bought it from iTunes… Brilliant album btw, and I agree, the MV is pure gold!
