One thing I have genuinely always loved about K-Pop is how it has given South Korea a musical voice and uplifted its people through song, from their rocky political and cultural history. In many ways the movement reminds me of the many artists that came into their own during Germany’s musical landscape post WW2. The German youth of the time sought to bring forth a new musical culture that in a way healed what had occurred during the second world war, painting a new picture through music ... read more

I AM THE ONLY ONE LEFT ALIVE!

Soaked, sunburnt, and shipwrecked, Scott Walker invites us to join him in his drifting agony, as he lies on a wooden plank which was all that was left of a destroyed vessel he was traveling on after a violent storm forced the passengers to abandon ship. After coming to terms with his situation in the middle of the night, lying on his back a few inches atop the black of the unknown ocean, while the relentless pale stare of the moon watches his every move, he ... read more
