My Mid-Year picks of 2013 are out and complete, but see which songs just barely missed the mark!

없어 (No) 없어 (No) [Listen]

by 최자 (Choiza)

I haven’t heard Choiza do solo work before, and for my first experience with him as a soloist this was great! I thought it was classic Amoeba Culture in sound, and classic Choiza in terms of his rapping style.

3집 - CollageStanding Still [Listen] [Review]

by 유키스 (U-Kiss)

I was not a fan of this album, it fact I thought it was a major let down for a group that’s been at it for so long. Standing Still has grown on me, and has become a real diamond in the rough for this album.

?????????????Rewind ft. 이미쉘 (Lee Michelle) [Listen]

by 더블 케이 (Double K)

Its nice to hear Lee Michelle again after her contract with YG ended so suddenly this year. This collabo just barely missed my list thanks to Geek’s collabo with Ailee, but that doesn’t make it any less great!

Wild와일드 (Wild) [Listen]

by 나인뮤지스 (Nine Muses)

Nine Muses made a good comeback this year. “WIld” sounds pretty similar to their music in the past, but something about this song was standout, and almost mature.

Safety ZoneSafety Zone [Listen] [Review]

by 달마시안 (Dalmatian)

This song just fell short of what I would expect from the new DMTN, but I still love, and find myself humming it to this day.

이놈 (I.N.D.O) (Single)이놈 (I.N.D.O) ft. 타블로 (Tablo) [Listen]

by 얀키 (Yankie)

HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH A COLLABO WITH TABLO! Yankie has me looking out for his music again with “I.N.D.O.”

No.1긴 생머리 그녀 (Miss Right) [Listen] [Review]

by 틴탑 (Teen Top)

The album was premature in opinion, and the promotions for this song seemed to last forever, but  it was super catchy! I don’t think I’ll be forgetting the Teen Top Shake for a while.
