Grimes, never get a publicist!

Grimes stopped having a publicist and suddenly the news is fun! There is a world where the news look like this, and there’s a world where it doesn’t, and if publicists want the second one of these, I will fight them until I win, because I don’t want a world without Grimes’ wackiness: […]

DREDD VELVET

Three years ago, Canadian “Memphis” rapper Freddie Dredd used Seulgi from Red Velvet as a cover image for his single “Witness”. It sparked life into some people that wanted to complain, and they even went so far as accusing Freddie Dredd of calling Seulgi “names”. Freddie disputed this, […]

Top 5 JISOO teaser videos

There seems to be only 5 of them, and I wanted to give them a proper and honest ranking! But mostly I made this post because I wanted to talk very briefly about the hype for BLACKPINK’s new song. The k-pop group has been posting teasers and trailers for a week now to create anticipation for their […]

The Nintendo 64 graphics were better (Why perfection is the opposite of creativity)

First of all, this isn’t any “The times were better back then” nostalgia. Yes, I grew up with Nintendo 64, but I also grew up with GameBoy Advance and I don’t have the same love for those graphics. So now I’m done with the self-deceptive lies and can go on with the text. I’ve talked abou […]

$ATSUKI gives hope to an upside-down world

I listened to $ATSUKI’s song “????!”/“War” (ft. Lil Cherry) and I just felt that no one is themselves as much as $ATSUKI on this song. Speaking on that, when was the last time you were yourself? I made a remix of the song’s two version because I got such good energy from it: […]

Nick Robinson is the best storyteller on YouTube

Nick Robinson makes documentaries about things I’m not very interested in (like Mario’s hair, Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku and Super Monkey Ball), so how come I just watched them all? Because he’s an amazing storyteller! Buying a “Wrinkly Pikachu” sticker doesn’t sound very intrigui […]

Launching my site in Japanese because of Japanese music

You can now read kbrecordzz in Japanese! https://kbrecordzzjp.wordpress.com I’ve written a lot about Japanese music on kbrecordzz.com, like Mami Yamase, SCANDAL (again), Seiko Oomori (again, again), Jun Togawa & Yapoos (again, again, again, again & again (the flagship of this site)), Wink, Zoomgal […]

The day Girls’ Generation and David Letterman met (and what it says about music)

I watched so many K-pop music videos this winter, on a mission to learn how they can be so captivating and awesome. It was fun. And then I thought: Why not watch the rest of the world’s music videos too? I started doing that, but… I quickly learned that, for some reason, the Western mindset of […]

Why Gwen Stefani’s “Love. Angel. Music. Baby” is so brilliant

(This text is from 2017 and was originally written in Swedish. It’s translated with DeepL) Gwen Stefani first became known as the singer of the ska/punk/rock band No Doubt, with their heyday in the second half of the 90s. In 1995 they released the album “The Tragic Kingdom”, after doing a numb […]

Gwen Stefani’s lyrics are so weird (= good!!)

I re-published my old review of Gwen Stefani’s album “L.A.M.B.” (“Love. Angel. Music. Baby.”), read it and then come back to this one. Now it’s time to talk about the lyric side of this pop masterpiece and its sequel “The Sweet Escape”, and try to understand what it says about the wo […]

AI and sampling end the “quality vs quantity” discussion for good

Remember when Daniel Ek (king of Spotify) said that musicians need to make more songs than they currently do to survive in the music business? I’m NOT interested in that statement, but I’m interested in how people reacted to it. They reacted like it’s impossible to make more stuff than they cu […]

Creating things that don’t exist yet – ft. Josef Fares’ attitude

I played the game “It Takes Two” with my friend, and realized that: This game is unlike all other games. So now you may wonder, did Josef Fares, the creator of the game, read any books on how to create games before making It Takes Two? No! ? “Well, I never read books on how to design a game. I […]

Red Velvet’s songs confuse people until they love them

People really thought “Zimzalabim” by Red Velvet was a bad song when it came out. Even though it’s a great song! Isn’t that incredibly insane and weird?? That’s because with every new song, Red Velvet goes outside their comfort-zone to make innovative stuff, which makes people not understa […]

What is really timeless? ft. Kanye West’s tweets

Remember the 80s/90s/00s/10s? We were/looked/said so stupid! That’s because the “now” becomes the past after a while, and that shit (time) is scary. I don’t want that, I want to be timeless! And stop viewing the past as older times and start treating it like it’s a couple of events de-atta […]

Jisoo is the most attractive K-pop singer

A short background if you don’t know who Jisoo is: BLACKPINK is the world’s biggest girl group and Jisoo is one of their four members. She’s talented and wholesome and when such a person gets to influence the world through fame we must celebrate it, and that’s why I write this!! Jisoo is sup […]
