Tearliner article

There's a new article written by me up on London Korean Links right now. This time I subjected Liner to my questions and the result is (what I consider) my best piece yet: Check it out!

While visiting Liner's blog (click 블로그 while there to get to the actual blog) there's a few categories to have a look at if you're interested in sampling his music:
"Liner Songs" for Tearliner songs
"Liner Guide" for unreleased songs in progress
"LP[LowEnd Project]" for a Low-End Project song
"MBC'태릉선수촌'OST" for songs from Taerung National Village
"MBC'동네한바퀴'" for songs from 동네 한바퀴

Tearliner highlights includes 함께라면 (from the new EP), Watch the Star (from the first album) and this early version of Rainy Day (piano ver.).

Especially When

Two weeks ago I gave one reason why I once thought that Moonrise Records was the best label around. Here's another.

Granted, Kyoungmo Kim's Especially When had moved on to Espousal Records before they came to release any of the two EPs they made prior to disbanding, but that doesn't change the fact that the best song on the Moonrise Compilations was theirs. Kyoungmo's vocals aren't perfect, but they work really well his band's fuzzy shogazeresque modern rock.

That song from the first Moonrise Compilation can be found below. If you visit Espousal's EW page you'll also find the link for the Especially When song on the second Moonrise Compilation ^^
