Jambinai, AKMU, T-ara (Music Finds #68)

“Music Finds” is a series with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs!”

Jambinai - Time of Extincion

While looking for musician performing post rock, or maybe was it rock/metal bands incorperating traditional Asian instruments into their music, I discovered this band called Jambinai. I haven’t gone through all of their works, but this piece below feels like a good introduction to their unique sound.

AKMU / Akdong MusicianRe-Bye

I’m really happy that SaSa introduced me to AKMU, even though I’m not often listening to them – when I do i’m not disappointing. Their very musical profound works never cease to amuse me, and I’ve mentioned their song “Melted” in my Fragile Voices (Music Finds #14)-post.  But where I decribed Melted as: “Melted is like heartfelt sadness in audio-form.”, I would say Re-Bye is a whole other story. There’s a bit soul, some R&B, rap and swing – all in all a bit more positive. It’s like I can’t help but to think about them doing this song as a colab with Mamamoo, haha.

T-AraFirst Love

Last track for this week is  one that could’ve been mentioned in the previously said “Fragile Voices”-post.  With a mix of Britney Spears “Toxic” strings, flamenco tempo and guitars, and smooth vocals with some rap thrown into there – it’s set for an interesting pop-song.
