Most of the music we get through promotional email is either bland, completely out of our wheelhouse, or just plain bad. Every once in a great while some thing awesome drops and other times you get something you just can’t quite decide whether it’s really good or really bad and those are always intriguing. I’m posting this as a Tidbit because it’s really a two song release and I couldn’t do a review if I wanted to. I also couldn’t help but give credit where it’s due, the opening line of their email to me was:
We’re GENIUS from South Korea and we play rock and roll. Our Bandcamp says: “We are not punk. Just drunk.” This is only 80% true. We also like tacos.
Being ill traveled I don’t know if South Korea has a burgeoning punk scene or if these kids are forging new ground but whatever the case I am finding their music interesting. I still can’t decide if this is genius (I couldn’t resist the pun) or not, so I’m just going to share it with you all and let you make up your minds. So here’s the single, and a couple of tracks of their previous releases.
