e.via
(이비아)



Hello! This post is going to be about the fastest woman rapper in Korea, e.via (hangul: 이비아). She's also a lyricist, composer and pianst who is represented by Dline Art Media (디라인 아트 미디어). However, when she first started, she used to go by Napper and would actually combine both her e.via personas and Napper persona in her song called "My 약" ("My Medicine").

However, when she released the first song from her debut album, "Oppa! na Haedodwae?", it sparked controversy and was banned from being performed on Music Bank because of the lyrics were suggestive. She was later banned from performing any of her songs from her album because of how suggestive it was. Despite it all, the song and album recieved overwhelming responses from the online communities.

As of now, e.via seems to be off the radar.

Heartsdales



Welcome to this post! This post is about the Japanese Urban sisters, Heartsdales. They were produced by VERBAL of m-flo fame and debuted in 2001 with So Tell Me (which remains to be their most popular single throughout their lifespan). It was clear in their style that they were heavily inspired by 80s and 90s American hip-hop influence.

They chose the name Heartsdales as a tribute of the to Hartsdale, New York where Rum was born and ultimately they were raised where they became fluent in English as well as Japanese.

In 2004, they first self-produced the new single I See You which was even more evident from their change of sound - from the rap and hip-hop influence to their current pop sounding songs.

However, in the summer of 2006, the sisters announced they were going their separate ways, musically, in order to focus on their own musical projects. Their last concert was held on September 2, 2006.

It has recently come to my attention that apparently MegaUpload has ads that have malware. For those of you who are not aware what malware is here's what it is, according to it's wikipedia article (linked at the bottom of the blurb):


Malware, short for malicious software, consists of programming (code, scripts, active content, and other software) designed to disrupt or deny operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation, gain unauthorized access to system resources, and other abusive behavior. (more @ wikipedia)


There are many different kinds of malware, including but not limited to:

to spare you the wall of textCollapse )

I haven't used the latest IE myself so I don't know how strong their protection is. Personally, I use Mozilla Fire Fox [the latest version] (I also have the Add-on, Adblock Plus) but it's also encouraged to use Google Chrome as a means to better protect yourself from websites where they may have the above.

As for virus protection, I would suggest using either avast! or even McAfee. I currently use the free version of avast! myself and one of the great things about it is that it updates itself every single time I turn on my laptop and even during in the middle of sessions, it would update itself. However, if you have the extra money, I strongly encourage to purchase the full version. If there are better anti-virus services, I would strongly encourage my members to post links to them so I can at least create a list of anti-virus services for more people to use.

I wanted to just announce what's going on with MegaUpload in case you're not aware or, thankfully, you have not been infected by a virus because of MegaUpload's ads. Please feel free to pass this link around to others so that they know what is going on and one of these days I'll finish, update, and create more discography posts.

SMASH
(스매쉬)



Hello! This is the post dedicated to the mysterious boy band SMASH (hangul: 스매쉬; in Japan, they're also known as SM☆SH). They debuted under the TN Entertainment and Loen Entertainment labels. One of the labels is owned by H.O.T's own Tony An! SMASH were debuted sometime in August 2008 with Open Fire!, their debut minialbum, but because SHINee and 2PM were also debuting at the same time, they were quickly overshadowed by the groups them and quickly faded into obscurity.

After less than half a year, SMASH halted activities in Korea and started to promote themselves in Taiwan and Thailand. They did not release an official single but performed and even had fan meetings there. In December 2009, they released a digital single called White Night - which is, oddly, in Korean.

In 2010, they actually started activities in Japan under the new name, SM☆SH, and released another single called, "Lunatic", on October 27th. They even opened a blog but it's in Japanese. They even have a DVD with their music video and making of. According to my limited Japanese comprehension skills, it also seems they're going to release a new album soon! So let's all watch out for them, okay? I'll group the Japanese and Korean discography together since, for now, they have so little Korean discography!

Below is the information for the members (past and present)!

21st-Nov-2010 12:59 pm - [POLL] cute_sounds make a return!
First of all, I apologize for being dead for so long. There has been quite a few changes in cute_sounds! If you're viewing this entry from your friends' page, please check out the new layout by clicking on the link above. Second, I revamped the tags list so hopefully it'll be more organized and aesthetically pleasing.

Another thing I wanted to ask from my members who are still somewhat active - would you still like music videos? Or would you like those to be gone? Would you like the older albums be uploaded to a different server? Do you enjoy the past few disographies and information I put?

Underneath the cut is the first poll asking questions similar to these. Please take the time to vote to see what the future is for cute_sounds especially since punch_desu is closed. I don't have anywhere else to post really but I don't want to post things people aren't going to use.

Feel free to answer the individual questions above if you feel the polls' answers aren't adequate enough.

To the poll!

first pollCollapse )

For the next discography post, I believe the members should have the honor of choosing who they want more. Please look under this cut for the choices. Feel free to ask questions if you have any!

second poll!Collapse )

Yozoh
(요조)



Welcome to this post! This time, I'm going to talk about indie sensation Yozoh (hangul: 요조)! Here you will find mostly her discography because information finding her about is extremely hard.

She is an indie artist in South Korea but she had been featured on songs most notably by Humming Urban Stereo and Sogyumo Acacia Band. As of now, she has released only two studio albums, My Name is Yozoh and Traveler.

From what I found out, the album Traveler was actually dedicated to her sister who was tragically killed in a fire while Yozoh was recording her debut album. All songs were made in her memory, the rumors say. But I haven't found anything to confirm or deny that.
