BOA: KISS MY LIPS (FULL ALBUM REVIEW)

BOA: KISS MY LIPS (FULL ALBUM REVIEW)
Release Date: 
5/14/15
Label: 
SM Entertainment
BoA's full length album Kiss My Lips is as wonderful as its title track.

Following the release of the luscious title track recently, the Queen of Pop that is BoA has now released the full length Kiss My Lips album, which is her eighth Korean album for those of you who are counting. Not bad for someone who's celebrating the 15th anniversary of her career this year. Especially when you consider how many Japanese releases she's done on top of that.

MONSTA X: TRESPASS

MONSTA X: TRESPASS
Release Date: 
5/15/15
Label: 
Loen Entertainment
The biggest difference between Monsta X and other boy bands is that they put more of an emphasis on hip-hop, something that's obvious during their stunning opening number "무단침입 (Trespass)."

Starship Entertainment's Monsta X was formed through the Mnet reality show No.Mercy. The group consists of Joo Heon, Shownu, Ki Hyun, Hyung Won, Won Ho, Min Hyuk, and I.M. The biggest difference between Monsta X and other boy bands is that they put more of an emphasis on hip-hop, something that's obvious during their stunning opening number "무단침입 (Trespass)," an aggressive rap track that blends trap flourishes with heavy EDM-style beats for an energetic sound that's both current and futuristic.

BoA's latest Korean single, the glimmering "Kiss My Lips," just arrived on Youtube courtesy of the good folks at SM Entertainment. At the time of this writing, 10,875 people have given it the thumbs up with only 344 giving it a thumbs down. If the reaction of her fans continues at this ratio, she's sure to have one of her biggest hits on her hands. But then all of BoA's songs become hits, really. To that end, one must deduce that she's a perfectionist because she sure insists that her material always be top notch. Cheers to her for that, though.

JANG HYUN SEUNG: MY

11 May, 2015 - 09:53
JANG HYUN SEUNG: MY
Release Date: 
5/13/15
Label: 
CJ E&M
BEAST's Jang Hyun Seung makes his solo debut with MY, his super cool new mini-album.

Well, somebody has been busy. And his name is Jang Hyun Seung. Or is it Jang HyunSeung? I've seen it spelled both ways. In any case, the BEAST member (also known for his work with Trouble Maker) is making his solo debut with his new mini-album, which is appropriately entitled MY. And the first song is appropriately entitled, too: "It's Me." Of course, he's not declaring that it's his mini-album when he sings "it's me." He's talking to a girl. "Kiss me girl," he sings as the song nears the end. Or is it not a song but an intro?

CRAYON POP: FM

CRAYON POP: FM
Release Date: 
3/30/15
Label: 
Sony Music Korea
The girls of Crayon Pop have been transformed into, what else, but super heros! Super heros who make great K-Pop!

The girls of Crayon Pop have been transformed into, what else, but super heros! Power Rangers inspired, even, according to Yes Asia's product description! OK, so that's probably not the least bit exciting to most of us, but "FM," the lead track from this, their second mini-album, is cause for celebration. It was written and produced by Shinsadong Tiger and Monster Factory and it's insanely catchy. Just don't ask me what the letters "FM" mean. You can read a translation of the song here: http://popgasa.com/2015/03/28/crayon-pop-fm/, but the significance of the letters is anybody's guess.

Vanilla Acoustic are a Korean trio who debuted in 2008 with mini album Vanilla rain. To my ears, their sound is like a fine blend of pop and folk, which is starting to become a bit too trendy of late.

Vanilla Acoustic are a Korean trio who debuted in 2008 with mini album Vanilla rain. To my ears, their sound is like a fine blend of pop and folk, which is starting to become a bit too trendy of late. But, hey, they started doing it several years ago, so they're trend-setters, not trend-hoppers. Got it?

Laure Shang has unveiled a brand new song!

Today I received some good news via Twitter -- Laure Shang has unveiled a brand new song! It's called "Red Amnesia" and it's from the movie of the same name, also known as Chuang ru zhe where it was made in China. The film will be released on April 30th in China and "Red Amnesia" appears on its soundtrack. I couldn't find an image of the soundtrack -- or a release date -- but I did find a photo on imdb that I was able to save, so that's what I've used as art for this post.

A fantastic EP of perfectly weird covers. A must for fans of Tommy heavenly6/Tommy february6.

Aural Vampire is a Japanese group lead by Exo-Chika (vocals/lyrics) and Raveman (music). They've been around since 2004 but this EP is the first of their releases that I've heard. And I must say I'm quite impressed with it.

GIRLS' GENERATION: CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
Release Date: 
4/10/15
Label: 
SM Entertainment
Girls' Generation return with a killer new EDM/pop song and a sweet ballad to go with it.

Typically, Girls' Generation will release a song in one language -- Korean or Japanese -- and then release it in the other language later, sometimes as long as a few months later. But the Korean version of their new single, "Catch Me If You Can" was digitally released on iTunes (Korea and U.S. at least) on April 10th and the Japanese CD single is being released not long after on April 22nd.
