Inkigayo Performance Round-Up

September 6, 2009

I’m going to start with f(x) since they’re the rookies here and this is our first opportunity to see them on stage together.

So I watched both of their performances, the MuCore one as well as this one and I have to conclude that this is definitely the better one. I guess they relaxed a little because you could see that they enjoyed this one more and their vocals were a lot better here. As far as vocals are concerned, they’re not bad – they seem to have a good foundation and I don’t sense any actually weak singers in the group so that’s a plus. If you watched their first teaser, you probably saw the ‘Asia best pop dance group’ label or whatever at the end of it and I have to say that I can see the focus on dancing here. Their choreography may look easy but it really isn’t, by any means and all of the girls seem to be fairly adept dancers, Luna in particular. Seriously, watch that girl (the one in all black in case you didn’t know) while she’s dancing and you’ll see the concentration and determination on her face – she is a serious dancer, I can see that already.

Yeah, so their dancing is pretty good – I love their choreo for ‘Lachata‘, I really do – it’s just so fun and cool-looking, I really want to learn it and I already told you that I love the song. The girls themselves seem all right on stage – they work well as a group, although you can see that they’re not fully in synch yet but that’s okay considering they’re just starting out and all. Now I know it might seem like I’m being overly critical and maybe I am but it’s just because I’m rather fond of the majority of the talent that SM produces, I think that all of their groups do very well for themselves and I expect these girls to follow suit. I just have high expectations for them, that’s all. So I am being critical but it’s just because I want to see them do well, you know, I want them to come out good and then steadily improve and so far, they’re not doing too badly in that respect.

Concerning F(x), IU, etc…

September 1, 2009

So I really like this song. I’ve had it on repeat for most of tonight.

Honestly when I heard the first teaser, I wasn’t impressed – I didn’t like the sound of it at all. But now that I’ve heard the entire thing, I think it’s pretty good. Pretty and fun and melodic and easy to follow, the dance looks interesting enough and most of all, it’s not just ‘catchy’ or overly repetitive like the last few hit songs from SME have been. Mind you, I liked those songs but you know that kind of thing gets old fast so this is a nice change. Here’s their new MV teaser for those of you who haven’t yet seen it – it looks nice enough, the car is really cute:

Good Ole Americana

April 3, 2009

So this is a little unusual for me but I decided to something different and recommend to you an American artist that I’m growing to be pretty fond of. She’s a new artist – new in the sense that she isn’t particularly well known as of yet in the States and she was only recently signed to a label – but she’s already released her first studio album, which I bought a few days ago – her name is Erin McCarley and her album, ‘Love Save The Empty’ is titled after one of the songs on the album.

edit: Oh, the official video for ‘Love Save The Empty’ was uploaded to Erin’s Youtube channel today and it’s also already on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown (number 18) so go vote for it, okay?

Up and Coming!

January 25, 2009

So since the boys are going on break, I’ve started paying attention to more people in an effort to find some folks to check out while they’re away. Here’s some of the people I’ve been keeping tabs on and my thoughts on them so far.

Updating Because I Should!

January 19, 2009

Sorry, sorry! I’m sorry – I was online all day today and totally had post ideas and I didn’t do either of them! I will though – I’m really sorry! In the mean time, check out this video. It’s the song rec of the day.

All I have to do say is thank goodness May Doni debuted when she did otherwise I would never have heard this song! It’s a really good dance track and I really don’t understand how it didn’t become a hit – May Doni’s got a serious set of lungs on her and the rapping is the perfect compliment (Lol, I’m talking like this is her song). I’m seriously addicted to this song right now and I totally suggest checking out May Doni’s actual debut song, Molla-ing. It’s not half as infectious as this one but I really like it – her vocals are so sweet and smooth there. I’m going to check out her mini-album soon. I wouldn’t suggest taking the MV too seriously though – it’s super weird and more than a little creepy. Oh, and the kid can really dance too!

It’s a Brand New Day…

January 9, 2009

So these days, I’m trying to broaden my musical horizons – there are tons of great artists out there and I don’t want to miss out on some of them because I’m too busy listening to the same songs over and over again (hello SHINee~) and since the only female Korean artists I listen to in a big way are the Wonder Girls (and really not even them so much), I figure I should check out some other people too (feel free to suggest, by the way).

So given this quest, when I heard there was a new girl group debuting, instead of cringing like some people and grumbling about there being another one, I figured I’d give them a try. So today I watched Brand New Day’s MV for ‘Livable’ for the first time. And surprisingly, I really liked it.
