Gogostar “God of Snowy Fields”

 

Holy smokes! What a great way to start this week’s playlist. Did we ever tell you that we like Gogostar? We like Gogostar. We’ve been to a couple of their shows, and we like to mention it just about every time we talk about Gogostar. One thing we didn’t mention: though we love their stuff, the keyboard guy with the mask always makes us chuckle. Not because he’s funny, but because we doesn’t move a lot, but he plays very danceable music, and we always imagine him behind his mask looking at the audience with disdain, like “Yes! Dance, you imbeciles! Dance because I force you to dance! I am your puppet master, you swine!” I’m sure he’s a really nice person in real life and doesn’t actually say that. But I think it’d make for a funny video if he did.

Seo Sang Jun “Sailing”

 

Ok, so this is more along the artsy fartsy lines of Indie Music that you get from time to time. It’s not something we’re against unless it gets too abstract. This was still a really pretty song with some pretty shots for the video, and timing the blinking of the lights to the song was cool. We checked out some of the other songs on Seo Sang Jun’s (label’s?) channel, which you can check out here, and one of the videos was a bit too abstract for us to appreciate. We’re happy we went with this song instead, but I’d still recommend checking out those other videos in case you do find something that tickles your fancy :D

The Solutions “Sounds of the Universe”

 

We don’t have any funny stories for The Solutions like we do for Gogostar. What we can say about them, though, is that we like their stuff live more than we do recorded. Does that sound bad? I’m not sure. Though we’re happy that the lead singer sings in English, it’s not really the band’s strong point. The music is the strong point. It’s really quite awesome. Seriously: how can you listen to the start of the song and not feel awesome about life? Point is, it makes for a great live set. I’ve never been to a set in Korea where the levels are right. Everyone’s voices are always drowned out. So, in a way, it’s a good thing to hear live if you like the music more thank you like the lyrics. In fact, his voice actually sounds better live. I think because you gotta yell when you’re live, maybe? This is shoutalong music, IMO. Great song still, though!

  1. Happy birthday Soo Zee!!!!!!!!!! =D

  2. Side note: Soo Zee read everyone’s tweets and comments and birthday wishes and was really moved. Thank you all for being so awesome :D

  3. I liked all the songs – as usual. I’m running out of compliments >_<

    Happy Birthday Soo Zee, I made you a playlist of birthday songs to savour :D

    There's some in Japanese, Korean, instrumentals, and Indonesian (pfft English is too mainstream :p).

  4. Yay, K-Crunch indie to the rescue! I’ve been having not so successful day of studying for the GRE’s (too much vocab to jam into my brain) and this was a great pick-meup. Allowed myself a nice dance break to Gogostar in my bedroom, some meditation with Seo Sang Jun, and “The Soultion” solved my lack of fighting spirit….K-crunch indie is the antidote to any study woes. Thanks Simon and Martina, i will show that archaic english vocabulary now!

  5. Happy Birthday Soo Zee !!!! Know that you are totaly part of the Eat Your Kimchi family and that all of us Nasties from around the world love( we have only seen you acouple of times but yeah) and support you just as much as we love and support Simon and Martina. I hope you had an awesome day and that you enjoyed your birthday( Even do technicaly your birthday is over because its 11pm on sunday for me and 2pm on monday for you :) jeje) i hope that only good things happen to you this year. I send my love from Costa Rica!

  6. Sounds of the Universe will most likely be stuck in my head all week. I’ve already replayed it like 4 times xD
    Thanks for sharing these ^^

  7. Simon and Martina,
    You two should think about doing a K-Indie CD giveaway. A large chunk of Korean indie stuff (I’ve found) is nearly impossible to find outside of Korea :/ I don’t know how readily available Korean indie CDs are in Korea, but just throwing the idea out there :) Thanks guys, this was a great K-Indie playlist.

  8. Go Go Star is one of my fav bands now, thanks to you guys! I bought their last album on iTunes, so I’ll probably buy this one as well :)

  9. Happy Birthday SooZee! Hope you have a wonderful day!

  10. Who knows where I could get Gogostar’s God of Snowy Fields? It doesn’t seem to be on iTunes, at least yet.
    Also happy birthday Soo Zee!!! ^.^

  11. Yes! Indy ROCK!! Through I watch the KIndie Playlist every week, the electronica stuff generally isn’t my cup of tea (not really into club music). Rock, however, soothes the savage beast. Time to go watch and see what’s going to be added to my iPod later today.

  12. happy birthday soo zee!! hope you have a wonderful day and feel better soon :)

  13. You saw Gogostar perform live ?! Three times already ?!! O.O
    I’m soooo jealous !! > . <

  14. doesn’t “babushka” mean “grandmother” ?

  15. Hello guise! >:D< (hope you're having a nice day :) )

    Gogostar “God of Snowy Fields” – WOW… brilliant song O_O …in the beginning it starts slow and you don't know when or if the beat is going to hasten and just takes you by surprise (just like on a winter day when you think the wind is gone, gives you a sudden whiplash…*I don't know why I made that comparison – . -*). I bet this song sounds amazing on headphones… gosh and the drums… epic song; the video's cool too (I just don't like winter = . =)This is probably my one most Gogostar favorite!

    Seo Sang Jun “Sailing” – it's a cool song. Awesome song to fall asleep to. Makes me want to hear a version of the song with lyrics…

    The Solutions “Sounds of the Universe” – "Though we’re happy that the lead singer sings in English, it’s not really the band’s strong point. The music is the strong point. It’s really quite awesome." Yeah. I agree. maybe he sounds better in Korean… the instruments blend so well together.

    Amazing playlist!! ^____^ Great work guise!! :D

    P.S: *I wonder if Soo Zee got my message…. * Happy Birthday senpai! and get well soon!!

    ♥♥♥♥

  16. Happy bithday Soo Zee !! :D
    I hope you’re feeling better by now ! :)
