REVIEW: FOXY SHAZAM: GONZO

The first couple of times I listened to this new Foxy Shazam album, I thought it was terrible. No, I can be more accurate: I thought it was piss poor. My biggest complaint was that the vocals sounded as though they were recorded on a cheap, old blank cassette that sold for 99...

    NS YOON-G: THE WAY 2.. Release Date:  4/3/14 Label:  Loen Entertainment I checked out the video for "Yasisi" ("야시시") and immediately fell in love with it.

    SHOKO NAKAGAWA: 9LIVES Release Date:  4/2/14 Label:  SRCL You might expect an album with songs that were used for so many different things to sound rather unfocused, since many of the songs were created for various different projects, not specifically to go together. But you would be wrong in this case. It's been three and a half years since Shoko'
