K-pop Indie Gem: Cheeze

We are marked as much by the things we have lost as the things we have. In his poem “Separation,” W. S. Merwin says:

K-pop Indie Gem: Miso

Miso is a queen. Point. Blank. Period. To completely expound upon this womans regal nature, however, would take entirely too long. But Id be remiss if I didnt at least comment on how truly elegant she is. Let me explain.

Miso came to me via one of my favorite Korean RB artists, Crush. Last years Interlude showed the artist was moving away from producing saccharine-sweet love ballads and in a more music-centric direction. As a result, much of the EP was him showcasing his willingness to experiment, even going so far as to remove himself from the spotlight and lend his music to another voice. Enter Miso, the undisputed queen of music collective Club Eskimo, with her stripped-bare, simplistic vocal. Song Castaway suddenly became more than just a mellow groove tinged with a light island flare around the edges. In Misos care it became a piece of whimsy, a sweet melody that got caught in the brain and never left.
