ENHYPEN ‘Dimension : Answer’ Album Review

ENHYPEN had me at Just a Little Bit, one of the songs off Enhypen ‘Dimension : Answer’, the repackaged album proceeding their first album, Dimension : Dilemma. I was doing my household chores while absent-mindedly playing K-pop music videos suggested by our family’s Youtube algorithm. I’ve seen many music videos of the group quite a few times, but my brain blindly refused to recognize my … Continue reading ENHYPEN ‘Dimension : Answer’ Album Review

‘Kinain ng Social Media’ by Mani Kontador is Musically-Nostalgic and Socially-Relevant

Mani Kontador ‘Kinain ng Social Media’ EP Review As a millennial, I find it delightful when a new artist reminds me of my generation.

Unique ‘Pangalan’ Review: Unique Lets us in the Deeper Layers of his Psyche

Listening to Unique Salonga’s sophomore effort Pangalan has transported me into the deep-seated psychedelic stream of his consciousness–sounds of isolation, clutter, disturbance, struggles. Mysterious as he is, he gives us a chance to see through him in Pangalan. That is if we puzzle out his every stance. The 8-track sophomore album won’t be an easy feat for his usual bubblegum pop-loving fans unless they’ve been … Continue reading Unique ‘Pangalan’ Review: Unique Lets us in the Deeper Layers of his Psyche
