The cover art grabbed my attention, I have to admit. This is one of those times where I probably would have passed this up without the shockingly surreal cover art and cheesy tune titles, but I’m glad I stopped by. Yeong Choi is a pianist, programmer and composer from Seoul, South Korea who puts up an album that has a feel like a soundtrack for a new, more acid-laden version of Alice In Wonderland. Quite good, this.
[Music] mcthfg – Korean Dub, Volume One
Though credited to Korean composer mcthfg, this release is actually a compilation featuring three of South Korea’s finest dub technicians. From the Bandcamp site:
South Korea has a vibrant, amazing group of underground artists, and this album is dedicated to them.
Tengger is Itta (Indian Harmonium, Voice and Toys) and Marqido (Synthesizer)
Kuang Program is Taehyun Choi
[Video] 잠비나이 (Jambinai) – Connection
Many thanks to dear Maryna Evilly from Ukraine for originally posting this.
The band is a new one to me. It seems that they’re from South Korea, and, at least on this track, they have a sound which reminds me of Tuxedomoon or bands from the legendary Italian record label Materiali Sonori.
