Korean Indie Playlist: 2 City Man

Yukari “Marginal Man”

Holy flipping boats! We freaking love Yukari! This music is sooooOOOOOoooo SSOOOOO our kind of thing. It’s not music we’d listen to everyday, or at all times of the day (not really good morning music, in my opinion) but when you’re in the mood for a background vibe, this is definitely it. It’s almost aggressively background music. I don’t know what that means, but I just came up with it now. I’m trying to describe the feeling I get when I set up music to play in the background while I do stuff, and then I do the stuff, but once in a while I’ll hear the music and be like “UHHH THIS SOOO GOOOOOD” and then focus on that instead of what I’m supposed to do. It’s bad at doing its job of being background music. So…yep. That’s what I meant to say. I’m sure you have had similar experiences too, right?

Love X Stereo “Seoul City”

One thing we didn’t mention in our video for Love X Stereo: we actually know the girl. For those of you Nasties who have been around with us for a very long time, well, a VERRRY long time ago we were on the cover of Seoul Magazine. It was our first magazine cover. It was the first time we were featured in a magazine altogether. It wasn’t necessarily an article on us, the way the Groove Magazine article featured us in depth; it was just us on the cover as models, so to speak. Anyhow, the whole point of this is that the photoshoot was arranged by Annie, who is a member of Love X Stereo. We ran into her a short while ago in the Hongdae Club Strip after one of her shows. So…this is her band! We like featuring people we know.

Achime “02시무지개”

And, since we’re clearly exceptionally biased this link, we’re partial to Klinton’s request because we know him as well. How freaky was it that we ran into him in Korea AND Japan at the same time? That’s nuts man. Just nuts.

But we won’t talk about Klinton as much as we’ll talk about the song. I think I might have seemed unfair when talking about the song. I made it seem as if the song was just mediocre, and the computer sounds are what redeemed it, but that’s totally not true. The song’s great all around, but I’m just tooootally into 8bit stuff. Take it away from this song, though, and it’d still be great. It sounds similar to Spoon, if you’re fans of Spoon, and we are fans. So…yeah! We’d love to hear more stuff from Achime, and hope it sounds like this – with or without 8bit – though we’d prefer if 8bit was in there :D

Also, congrats to the winners of the MFBTY Signed CDs! You can see if you won in the last video on our playlist, which I’ll embed here to make it easier for you to check out. Huzzah!

  1. I’ve always wondered why you guys tell us to click on the link to watch it in playlist mode when it will play that way anyway minus the commercials. :P

  2. It’s actually a kind of “rule” for French teachers (as a foreign language, s’entend!): when teaching new vocabulary, always add the article. It helps for remembering the gender of the word, as well as for a bunch of other things like pronunciation (liaison/élision, ect) and the use of the partitive.
    I guess the flipside to that technique is the students can’t seem to know how to use a word WITHOUT an article… But it always makes for a good laugh!

  3. Another great K Crunch Indie playlist….totally a fan of Love X Stereo now (her voice is so ethereal for me and I quite enjoyed the rest of their songs) and I also enjoyed the concept of their MV…makes me want to jump on my bike and videotape my city. I also quite enjoyed Yukari and Achime too, especially the video game 8bit quality you mentioned…what a great request Klinton and request video!

  5. I love Yukari. I’m very tired and sleepy right now, though, and her music isn’t helping ;(

    Wait, I’ve heard that Soul City song before. It didn’t have an MV at the time. I think last year another Nasty introduced Love X Stereo to me, and I loved them so much I checked out all their songs. Alyn Clay, was it you?

    *lol I found the old video – it even has my comment on it from 2 months ago xD

    I want to run into you on the streets too ._.

    This week is super electronic again huh :p Y U SO ELECTRONICA BIASED xD

    Gosh I need to request some hip-hop ballads to put in your lists. And rock. And trot, omg trot is awesome.

    Not that I mind electronica – it’s cool stuff bruh ;D

    The blog embedded playlists have been skipping around for a while now. Dunno who’s at fault here – probably WordPress.

    lol Klinton. Oh boy, the requests are getting awesomer and awesomer – I better get my next request in quick, before the bar is too high xD

    • Wait did your router start working or are you at uni at midnight?

      • Hmm….so the story is that I can still connect using a cable, which I didn’t realise until I opened a special flap in my super-skinny laptop. So yeah. I have internet, but only one person can use it at a time, and my parents both use it for work, so I can only use it at night ^^;;

  7. Yep, the signing off video is not embedded. Had to go and find it on youtube.

    I actually really liked the achime song ( and the request video – Hi Clinton!)

    The seoul city song I can definitely see as a driving song. I needs some iTunes links people! Makes me sad.
