Review: Efterklang in Seoul

Efterklang, Danish for ‘remembrance’ or ‘reverberation,’ certainly lived up to their name when they brought their moody soundscapes to Rolling Hall in Hongdae last Tuesday.  Efterklang is undoubtedly a live band; a great example of an outfit that fares far better in person than on record.  That is not to say their records are in...

In Pictures: Vluf x Unionway in Busan with Vans

Last weekend we went down to Busan to cover the VLUF x Unionway Fest (in association with skate brand Vans).

A Citybreak in Seoul: Day Two

This is a review of day two of Citybreak, the new midsummer rock festival in Seoul. Click the link for a review of day one. The heat only intensified on day two, which added to the fury of the first band to grace the Super Stage, Apollo 18. Their invigorating thrash metal and grizzly vocals...
A Citybreak in Seoul: Day One

A Citybreak in Seoul: Day One

A tall purple sky and a coliseum of heat-warped white brick stretched ahead of me at the entrance to the Hyundai Card Citybreak festival. The number of people outside belied the soon-to-swell mass that heaved in Jamsil’s Sports Complex for the two-day rockathon. Don’t sweat if you missed it — because you certainly would have...
