It’s time once again for Kpopalypse roundup! Let’s take a look at this week’s new releases!
Oh My Girl – The Fifth Season (SSFWL)
It could have spent a little more time rocking, but it’s still reasonably good… I guess. Maybe it’ll grow on me.
Momoland & Erik – Love Is Only You
Yeah don’t get excited it’s one of those “between real songs” songs that these groups put out just to keep their name alive.
Eric Nam – Runaway
It’s actually not too bad. His management should really get their shit together and agree to my interview requests.
Woohyun ft. Junoflo – Hold On Me
Some great backings but not much going on over the top unfortunately.
Xiumin – You
Oh dear, what is this shit.
Taeyeon – Voice
Some overblown 80s mid-tempo power ballad thing, it’s not any worse than Katy Perry or whatever bullshit.
Park Hyo Shin – Goodbye
Goodbye to you too, don’t come back.
Henry – Untitled Love Song
If you can’t even think up a name for it maybe that’s a warning sign that you have no ideas and you probably should just scrap it.
NC.A – Awesome Breeze
SHE’S NOT EVEN IN THE VIDEO THAT’S IT I’M CALLING THE FAP POLICE
WayV – Take Off
Some Chinese NCT member does a thing. Oh wait I’m Kpopalypse so I don’t care, that’s good.
Lof! ft. Kim Eunbi – Washed
Yes it really is meant to sound like this. I’m pretty sure.
OTOT – Start Me Up
I miss when both computer games and music used to sound like this.
Ha Yea Song – Your Regards
Same old shit.
N.Flying – Leave It
What’s that little amplifier doing right up the front of the stage. Aren’t they worried that they’ll trip over? OH&S compliance, please.
Lim Jimin – Loveholic
Not every 80s throwback is good.
Stray Kids – Mixtape #4
OLNL – Oyeah
Stop wearing bandanas, Koreans. You look like you need to go back to the $2 gift shop and get a refund.
Sunday Off – Space Boy
Why is the space boy wearing JYP’s plastic boxer shorts. This video needs to be 19+.
D.Hong ft Jin Ho Sung – Feeling
Why is there a random girl in this video. Oh that’s right, this is basically porn pretending to be a song.
Yu Seung Woo – Still Here
Gosh not for long, after listening to the first few seconds of this I think I have somewhere to be.
JuniorChef ft Young Coco – Tsugi
Terrible trap stuff but at least it’s confined to its own song and isn’t shitting up some pop song.
Soyoung Um – Very Very Good
A moshing beat that isn’t given enough prominence. Also could use a bit of double-kick. Just a little oomph would have gotten this over the line.
Yang Da Il – Dreams
I have dreams that one day people stop making music like this.
Choyoung – What U Wanna
Lots of staring into space looking bored here.
Tagger – Bit
Do you think that he doesn’t know how to spell “beat” and someone decided not to correct him because this song doesn’t have one?
Han Damhee – Life Is
This is more like it. The trot sure is kicking ass so far this year – or maybe it’s just everything else that’s gone to shit.
BONUS RANDOM VIDEO OF THE WEEK
GIRL CRUSH JENNIE BLACKPINK WHITE NOISE 10 HOURS – SLEEP STUDY OR RELAX – RELAXATION IN YOUR AREA
When doing research for my most recent music theory post, I noticed that typing “white noise” into the YouTube search bar brought up a ton of ten-hour long white noise videos with really clickbaity titles. So I thought I’d make my own. Hopefully this video of “blackpinkwhite noise” helps you with achieving your life goals, or just getting a good night’s rest, but it probably won’t.
That’s all for this week – Kpopalypse roundup returns next week!
