Got an email yesterday about this band GENIUS from Pusan. Their bio reads: “GENIUS is a pretty cool guy. eh kills aleins and doesnt afraid of anything”. 

I was pretty into that. Also, GQ Korea apparently named the vocalist/guitarist Kim Il Du ‘Voice of the Year for 2013’. So I checked out their new album BEACHES and this dude is singing his heart out in broken English about “lost my dick” and the possibly that he might be “2/3 gay”. But don’t get it twisted, it’s not a comedy album although they cover some funny topics. These guys really just be going all out. Here’s some more info:

Mostly we just want to play loud and fast, having done so with Japandroids, This Will Destroy You, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ra Ra Riot, No Age, The King Khan & BBQ Show, French Horn Rebellion, Jeffrey Lewis, Carsick Cars, Xiu Xiu, Retros, etc.

Our influences include Ralph Wiggum, pro wrestling, The Cramps, punk ’76, pulp comics, Pedro the Lion, schlock films, cold grapes, Al Bundy, dry socks, The Walkmen, Bob’s Burgers, Pavement, drunk ballads, and the young Chow Yun Fat.

Aiight, check it out for yourself:

Also, here’s a video:
