Knowledge Note: In the past, the b-side songs were the songs that weren’t the title song, the main attraction, but that still made it on to the album anyway. Sometimes it was just to fill up space, sometimes it’s because the artist felt like the song was strong enough to be released to the public, but the entertainment company didn’t agree. B-sides are a compromise.
Sometimes I wonder what musicians do when they’re not feeling pressured to create the perfect song, which is why I’m fascinated by the b-sides on most albums.
I love Stray Kids and their edgy-yet-playful sound, so I really loved hearing the b-sides on their latest album Cle 2: Yellow Wood. Come see if you like them as much as I do!
Man Wol tries to do the noble thing and send Chan Sung away. Which lasts for at least ten minutes and then it is back to ghost hunting and really awkward dialogue. Come join us as we discuss what we still like and what is dragging in this week’s Hotel Del Luna chatty recap.
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like there has been a lot of remixing of the same old drama tropes and stories lately. I’ve been craving something different and I Wanna Hear Your Song has offered up just that. Join Kmuse and I as we share our thoughts on this new musical, murder mystery.
Are you a fan of fluffy historical dramas? Do you love watching idol actors in hanbok? Yep, me too! I just saw the new trailer for Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency and I can’t wait to try out next month!
I initially gave Noir a try a few months ago, but the song I listened to just felt derivative, so I gave them a pass. Thanks to a new kpop release list on Spotify, I heard “Doom Doom” and something just clicked.
Having listened to most of Noir’s three mini albums now, I’ve decided that sometimes circling back to a group is not a bad thing! Come see what I found to love when I gave Noir a second chance.
We finally get the full backstory of Man Wol’s past and realize that her own trauma is a lot deeper then expected. Come join us as we discuss whether this justifies her penance and whether we are still feeling the romance between our OTP.
