I figure while I'm already on here, what the heck lol. I also mainly want to feature one song in particular which is why I end up posting these in the first place.
Urbangarde - Kuchibiru Democracy (2015) (J-Pop/J-Rock)
I looooooove this. Love it so much I actually listened to the entire album. I never do that. Usually albums just go onto my "I'll get to this eventually" list and it takes me a year or so to get to it. The album is equally as good as the song.
CLC - Meow Meow & Liar (2017) (K-Pop)
Their comeback was a cheap rip off of 4Minute. There. I said it. Hobgoblin is a fun song yes, but Hyuna ruined CLC by trying to make them EXACTLY into 4Minute. And does she love the sound of her voice so much to make the one rapper girl sound exactly like her? Gosh that was the most offputting thing I've ever experienced in K-pop. Hyuna needs to stay away from CLC unless she has some fresh ideas for them. These two album tracks on the other hand are great. They're tropical house/K-pop sounding would have worked much better for a retooled CLC. Make them more of a cool "bad girl" group, but with something fresher and less sounding of desperation.
Seohyun - Don't Say No (2017) (K-Pop)
I love this new K-pop trend. Bright colors and house fusions. It's so hilarious to me how obvious the trends show up in K-pop. No. K-pop is nothing like Western music at all *rolls eyes*.
Predianna - Cry Like This (2017) (J-Pop)
Tsubaki Factory - Hatsukoi Sunrise (2017) (J-Pop)
My babies! Mark my words. They are H!P's next big thing.
Dreamcatcher - Chase Me (2017) (K-Pop)
