THIS WEEK I AM PREMIEREING 2 NEW SERIES ON MY BLOG! This is the first new series of 2. I just want to tell you guys what I have been listening too recently - whether it is new releases or getting back around to some older favorite songs and artists. I hope that this will introduce you guys to new songs/artists to check out but I am also curious how my listening tastes change between months and moods that I am in. LET'S TALK MUSIC!
TAEMIN - NEVER GONNA DANCE AGAIN ACT 1
If you guys know anything about me, you know that my ULT group is SHINee and my ULT BIAS is Taemin, SO THIS SHOULD NOT BE A SURPRISE! Anytime Taemin/SHINee release anything, I tend to listen to it for MONTHS after. This album is and will be the same! I loved that he tried sounds and genres that were new to him. Criminal was a MASTERPIECE! I AM SO EXCITED FOR ACT 2!
NCT - NCT RESONANCE PT. 1
NCT 2018 EMPATHY WAS AN AMAZING ALBUM! So, when SM announced NCT 2020, I had HIGH expectations and I was NOT disappointed! I always love the mix of NCT's vocals and rap line when it comes to their songs because they have AMAZING TALENT IN THE GROUP! We get so many genres and styles on one album; I will never get sick of it AND WE GET ANOTHER ALBUM WHICH IS ALWAYS EXCITING!
SUPERM - SUPER ONE - THE 1ST ALBUM
Yes, I know I am SUPER SM HEAVY in my music tastes this month HAHA! I also love basically every group that SM has introduced to us - I listen to practically all of SM's artists. SO, THIS IS NOT SURPRISING AT ALL! I like SuperM for the same reasons why I like NCT and Taemin. Well Taemin is in the group so I LOVE SUPERM HAHA! I love the mix of vocals and rap when it comes to SuperM as well. You have amazing vocalist in SuperM FOR SURE! I also just love that you get different genres and styles all on 1 album just like NCTs because I tend to listen to these albums all the way through without skipping.
REFUND SISTERS - DON'T TOUCH ME
I did not know this was a thing or that I needed it in my life UNTIL this song came up in a playlist I was listening too. Ever since I heard this song, I have been addicted to it. I mean Hwasa is my bias in Mamamoo and Jessi is such a good rapper but I am just surprised that I found this through a playlist and had no idea this was a thing. I AM SO HAPPY IT WAS IN THAT PLAYLIST or I never would have heard it probably.
VERIVERY - FACE US
Honestly, I am surprised this album has been on repeat as much as it has. I have always loved VeriVery but their last couple albums have been GREAT ALBUMS but this album is different! I don't think I can go a day without listening to it. It is just a new sound and change for them and I think that is why I like it so much. It is refreshing!
WEi - IDENTITY: FIRST SIGHT
I am SO HAPPY that this group has FINALLY debuted. I have waited a long time for this album and NOW I CAN LISTEN TO IT ALL THE TIME! I like that the title track Twilight is more upbeat and happier then I assumed it was going to be. I also think it pairs well with the rest of the songs on the album. I am excited to see what they release in their future releases because this was a GREAT debut album!
YOUHA - ISLAND
Another song that I came across on a playlist I was listening too. THIS IS WHY I LISTEN TO PLAYLISTS I HAVE NOT MADE MYSELF! I always find new songs and music that I then add to my own playlists. This song has a summer sound that I discovered in Autumn so it was nice to find. I can just imagine driving on a road trip while listening to this through the car speakers.
LAY - LIT
THIS ALBUM IS A MASTERPIECE!! Ever since it was released, I have NOT STOPPED listening to it. I PROBABLY SHOULD! I am sort of addicted to it. I just love the flow of the songs through the album and how it ebbs and flows from start to finish.
GHOST9 - THINK OF DAWN
SUCH A UNIQUE AND AMAZING DEBUT TITLE TRACK! I just love the instrumental of this song. I think it was the time that this song came out because it was just so new and nothing like I had heard before. THE PRE-CHORUS IS JUST SO GOOD! I also love that the harsh instrumental of the chorus doesn't start right away when the chorus begins. The structure of this song is just so interesting and I never tire listening to it.
MY OWN CHINESE/TAIWANESE DRAMA OST PLAYLIST
Working from home, I tend to have music on a lot in the background. Now when I REALLY have to concentrate, I can't have singing in my music because I tend to get distracted and sing along. That is why I have listened to my Cdrama/Tdrama playlist a lot. There are a lot of OST albums on this playlist that are just instrumentals. So, I can still listen to good music but not get distracted HAHA!
What have you been listening too recently? Anything that I should check out or add to my playlists? Did you find any songs/albums from this post that you are going to check out?
