You think you know Asian Pop? Think again. We take a look at 8 selections out of the creative as hell scene in Tokyo/Seoul. Leave behind your misconceptions about K and J pop. This scene has music that’s simultaneously wash-over-you-warm and world weary as fuck. You need to know the state of sound out of Northeast Asia. Some songs have subtitles, but if not click on the link to open in Youtube, then hit the CC button for auto-generated ones. Even without them: I always believe emotion carries across cultures even when words can’t; so get lost in the feeling and the day-to-day looks at creatives from these two cities.
