[HIGHLIGHT] G5SH: 舉刀自盡Back to Heaven ft.莫宰羊

I, shamefully, am only discovering this song three months after its release. I’m not familiar with G5SH or Mo Zai Yu莫宰羊, but I really love this piece they put out. I’m not really sure how to classify it. It’s predominantly electronic and has a sound that I associate with Taiwanese EDM very much but I…

[HIGHLIGHT] Vicky Chen陳忻玥 : Am I Who I Am

MUSIC RATING: 9/10 | MV RATING: 8.5/10 I always appreciate Vicky Chen’s sound. Her music is quite consistent and very suitable for her strong voice. I like the slight old-school Avril Lavigne vibe with the bold piano and drums in ‘Am I Who I Am’. The music is refreshing in the way that it leans…

[HIGHLIGHT] ONEWE: Regulus 야행성

Besides artistic critiques, I like to stick to Mando-pop on this blog as Kpop is already very widely known. I’ve had very little interest in Kpop after JYJ left TVXQ like ten years ago. As you can see at this point, things pertaining to Kpop here usually revolves around artistic stuff like music video critiques,…

[HIGHLIGHT] 曹楊 Young – Astray走散

I wanted to share a new artist I found and his recent song, Astray, a smooth, sad love song. I’m not familiar with Young (Cao Yang) at all but I definitely like the way he sings and projects his voice effortlessly without reservation. Normally I would probably just pass over a song like this but…

Jay Chou周杰倫: Mojito – Read About Cuba

Music Rating: 9.5/10 | Music Video: 10/10 Growing up with Jay Chou, it has been a pleasure watching his music evolve.

Silence Wang & Youth With You2: Never Give Up 不服

In the collab stage of Youth with You 2青春有你2, Silence Wang 王蘇瀧 led his group of trainees with the performance of Never Give Up 不服. This was originally his song but he sang it solo. I actually enjoyed this performance with the trainees more than when Silence performed it alone. Ronda Xu’s vocals added a…
