#albumoftheday REVIEW: DUM DUM GIRLS: TOO TRUE

Dum Dum Girls’ first release, a cassette called Blissed Out, was as lo-fi as you can possibly get. Or pretty close to it. To my ears, it sounded less like lo-fi and more like shit. (It was a bedroom recording, in their defense.) But my opinion of the group has gotten progressively better...

This luscious ballad begins with Katy B singing softly over melancholic piano notes. "I still see your face like it was only yesterday," she sings, her voice full of longing. Once it arrives at the chorus, a sticky electro-beat beat begins throbbing away accompanied rhythmic live...

#songoftheday / VIDEO: ARCH EMEMY: WAR ETERNAL


Arch Enemy are back! Not that they've been completely gone, given that they just released the re-issue of Black Earth with lots of bonus tracks last year, but, still, their last studio album, Khaos Legions, was released back in 2011, so it's understandable that their fans -- like...

    KEN HIRAI FEAT. NAMIE AMURO: GROTESQUE Release Date:  4/2/14 Label:  Sony Music Ken Hirai and Namie Amuro team up for a truly weird but highly addictive new tune... Well, well, well... This "Grotesque" song is an interesting one. A bit weird, even. It starts off with Ken singing over hip-hop-ish/electro beats, the last line of his verse being

    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. One of my longtime readers suggested that I check out this mini-album and I'm quite glad because I hadn't heard about it. Well, OK, I *am* subscribed to 1theK's channel o

    HIGH4 & IU: 봄 사랑 벚꽃 말고 [Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossoms] Release Date:  4/7/14 Label:  Loen Music To be honest, I'm on the fence about this one.

    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'
