I have been trying to get some new music....something to alternate with between the usual Korean Pop. A friend of mine recommended Vampire Weekend, and The Naked and Famous and Florence and the Machine, I am loving what I am hearing.
As far as Korean Pop goes, I recently discovered this new duo - Akdong Musician (AKMU). I really love their music, had a listen to their entire album 2 days ago, and it is amazing!! It gives that feeling of "this is real music"...Another thing that really blew me away about the duo is that their music is something completely new, relative to the usual K-Pop I listen to. Their music video's are so rich, not flashy or "too much", just right.
One more thing, that really makes this group my favorite is that their new to the K-Pop game, they so natural....not plastic like the other groups I know of. Brilliant voices too, the voices you hear on the CD tracks are so close to what you hear, when they live....like 99% match, which I really like.
Seeing as I like this duo, I would love to get some English music, that almost has the same feel as AKMU. I am liking Vampire Weekend and The Naked and Famous....so I am hoping to get similar there as well.
I listened to the video DJ linked in this thread....I loved it, I think I am starting to like Rock music....I want to get started in that department too. Wow, and they local too!!
I think my music sensors like anything cool, except for the common pop and rap music on TV and Radio.
Nice one Quantum. Thanks - some new driving music to drown out the screaming
This looks like a good thread to post these guys.
