[MONTHLY] Favorites for JUNE 2019

Too buried in work to get to this on time, but here's June! My first half of the year playlist for 2019 will also be coming soon. Woo!

My top choice for the month had to be this incredible MV from TXT. Super moody and artsy and I love it. Really special. SAAY's funky ZGZG takes the second spot. Love that crunchy instrumental. Looking forward to more from SAAY.

[MONTHLY] Favorites for MAY 2019

I was feeling some lady energy for May. Bom and SWJA are my tops for the month.

I've enjoyed having Bom's voice back in our midst and this little collaboration with Wheein to a more rock sound really suited what I was in the mood for. I've also had my eyes and ears on Sunwoo JungA for years, but I'm just really really in love with her new mini (Spotify link). She seems like an incredibly interesting person and I could listen to her all the time.





In the full post: Kim Dong Han, Leo Kang/Nody Cika, Eric Nam, Lim Jimin, N.Flying, Cherry.B, Mommy Son, BVNDIT, GOT7, 3YE, IZ, BeatBurger, OnlyOneOf, and Boramiyu.

[MV] SAAY - ZGZG

[MV] Jay Park - Feng Shui

Only Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook of BTS. They have a big Netmarble game coming out later in the month. Each week a sub-unit song will be released from the game soundtrack. Possibly each with a collab? Don't know yet. The other sub-units are supposed to be J-Hope/V, and RM/Suga.

[MONTHLY] Favorites for APRIL 2019

We had big releases last month with BTS and TWICE. 'Boy With Luv' and 'FANCY' have been stuck in my head since they were released. Even though I prefer BTS's darker sounding tracks, BWL was a ton of fun and FANCY is just straight-up an earworm.

But! For April, I went with IZ*ONE and So!YoON! for my top picks. 'Violeta' feels gorgeous, lush, and full of energy every time I listen, and HOLIDAY is just the kind of groove I'm always in the mood for.

A bunch of indie choices in here for April, like YUNGDAN's 'Keep Going', which has an awful video there is no point in watching, but the song is chill.





In the full post: BOL4, MINHYUN, FLAG, Woogotsa, BTS, Eian, YUNGDAN, Kisum, TWICE, Joy o'clock, Newkidd, BOYCOLD, and PERC%NT,
