Artist: Saltnpaper (솔튼페이퍼)
Song: LoveStrong (Feat. Tablo/타블로 of Epik High)
Album: Single “LoveStrong”

This song is so real, it’s mindblowing. Saltnpaper is another name for rapper MYK. I’m guessing he decided to give himself a different title for this album because it shows a different side of him. The song may speak to you more because it’s all in English! And MYK and Tablo undeniably make the perfect duo; both real as real can be and musically daring.

I consider this to be one of the most precious tracks in my music library. From gloomy, tense moods, it blooms into breathless releases. It’s very restrained, however, held back with twitchy textures and fragile melodies – making the mood beautifully complex. Even the most climactic sections feel confined, like Kim Jong Wan wants to cry something out but cannot. This song digs beyond basic emotion by voicing the closed, pained, and private places in our minds. 

Lyrics: 

Me, who can live pretending to know nothing
Me, who can live on without any greed.

Me, who hopes for the happiness of the people, appreciating my situation, and who can deliver some warm words.

Maybe I will laugh, in the thoughtless days my vain hopes
after a very long time I wont be shameful

Knowing my lacking and knowing my greed
I am not arrogant about the things I have.

Me, who has no hatred with understanding and forgiveness
Me, who can believe in the wonderful strength of love.

Maybe I will laugh, in the thoughtless days my vain hopes
after a very long time I wont be shameful.

Me, who I lastly really want to be
Me, who isn’t hurt because of you anymore.

When you get the chance, listen to this album in full because Nell definitely never disappoints.

Artist: Hyukoh (혁오)
Song: Wiing Wiing (위잉위잉)
Album: 20 EP

“Wiing Wiing (위잉위잉)” is the title song of Hyukoh’s debut album, 20, created by Oh Hyuk. The song has similar riffs and musical style to Thornapple (쏜애플) but is more calm and soothing. With Oh Hyuk’s smooth vocals along with the bass, drums, and electric guitar, it’s a song that you can relax to and find strangely addicting as you’ll want to keep it on replay.
