Right. I’m easily distracted, that’s why! It’s been a great week to catch up on the new music I missed when I was being delightfully diverted by the MMAs and the MAMAs. Come see what has come out recently and if you like it as much as I do!
Wanna keep up with what I’m listening to? Check out “New Kpop to Spin“, one of my many playlists on Spotify!
Halsey – “SUGA’s Interlude”
I love this piece from Halsay and SUGA — it’s sweetly contemplative and deep, just like we expect from SUGA. Great collab.
Stray Kids – “Levanter”
Stray Kids new album, Cle: Levanter, is a compelling listen, and “Levanter” was an easy first favorite.
AoA – “Come See Me”
AoA has turned out some awesome outfits, great harmonies, and a song with a strong hook — this was a really good listen.
A.C.E. – “Slowdive”
This is my hands-down favorite song from their new album. Enjoy the dance practice vid!
Lim Jimin – “Who, You?”
Lim Jimin is a relative newcomer to the scene — he’s debuting with Play M, and will be part of the Play M Boys soon. I love his voice — smooth and rich and deep. Enjoy the MJ references in the video!
BONUS TRACK: NEX7 – “New Order”
I find myself listening to some C-pop instead of Kpop, thanks to MiataMama — I’m broadening my horizons again. Love the deep guitar riff this song by NEX7 starts with, and the strength of the harmonies throughout. The whole album is a great listen!

Until the next record spins, I remain —
