You know when you try to describe the sound of a song using another song as an example and no one knows what you’re talking about? Well I just totally had that happen with this song. I have no idea how to explain what genre of music this is, but I love it! It’s like funky groovy sexy music which I’m pretty sure isn’t a genre. From a musicians’ perspective, I’m not sure if it’s an insult, compliment, or totally neutral feeling to be compared to another musicians song. Any musicians out there care to answer this question? Of course not in a, “you copied them” kindof way, but in a “it reminds me of…” kindof way. As for the band What Women Want, this is their first single and I’m very excited to hear more from them! GO GO GO!
Ok, I gushed over this song in our talk about it, so I don’t need to say that much more here. It’s an awesome song. Doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the playlist, but it seems like we talk about it in every Indie Music Playlist that we do. If anyone’s got any more suggestions for awesome K Hip Hop like this, send it here! We’re really into jazzy, boom-bap kinda hip hop, if you can’t tell by now. Lately we’ve been listening to a lot of jazzy hip hop on Sunday mornings while we cook breakfast, but it’s been mostly old school hip hop and R&B like Tribe Called Quest and D’Angelo. It’s nice to update our music with some new music and even cooler that it’s from Korean artists. WOOHOO!
We actually like this so much that we bought the album. In fact, we bought two of her albums. It’s great background afternoon music. Not too uppity, perfect for lazing about, but still upbeat. We listened to Lim Kim this week (since we overdid our hip hop selection) and it was totally lovely cooking music. She has another song I like just as much as “Rain”, it’s called “Alright” and although it isn’t a slow song it’s really freakin catchy and the video is super cool. I pretty much went on a Lim Kim binge and looked up all her stuff and watched all her videos and they’re all awesome. I think you’ll be hearing more of her on our playlists soon! Thanks for the request Maria!
