It’s heeeeeere! One Fangirl stayed up late (made easier by time zones), another set their clock to wake up super early, while some of us stumbled out of bed and blasted it in our cars on the way to drop off the kids. However we expressed our fangirl dedication, we’ve all had a chance to listen to BTS’s newest album, Map of the Soul : Persona and we want to share our first thoughts with you. Let’s check out this fantastic new album together!Continue reading

Just a little background on me: When it comes to music, I’m a proficient dabbler. I know enough about playing and performing to really respect talented vocalists and well-crafted songs. I love watching new artists find their sound and established artists push their sound in new directions. And I am ALWAYS looking for a sound that’s just a little different from the rest of the genre, making it stand out because of the hook, the harmony, or the chorus that gets eternally trapped in my head.
How’s that for an intro? Let’s get down to business, shall we? This week I present to you some of the new-to-me tight vocals that have tickled my neurons, and the soaring vocals that caught my ear in the last few months. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!Continue reading
Ok, so today’s post is technically just songs — B-sides don’t get their own MVs. I have to hunt high and low to find a YouTube version of the song, but I do it because I love it. (Ok, yes, the dance practices for some songs are ridiculously easy to find. Let me have my little exaggerations.)
**For educational purposes, back in the day, B-sides were the songs from the opposite side of the record that recording companies would send to the radio station to play on the air. A-sides were the hit songs, or potential hit songs, while B-sides were usually personally selected by the artist because they felt that it was as strong as the A-side song, and they really, REALLY hoped the DJ would like it enough to play it. **
Read on for what I consider to be some great B-side kpop songs!
Kmuse here! Finally back and ready to get my Kpop on. While I was trying to figure out what I should focus on, it came to me that I haven’t talked about the latest songs/performances that have shown up in the last little while. So I am going to take a break from looking at the past and share which new songs I think you need to check out.Continue reading
I don’t really keep a bias list or anything like that, but I’ve noticed lately that if I don’t know what to listen to, I turn to either FTIsland or Lee Hong Gi’s solo work. I guess that means I *do* have a bias…? I do love listening to Hong Gi’s powerful, slightly raspy voice a whole lot. Anyway, here are the top 5 Lee Hong Gi songs on my playlist!
