"Casker Album Review"

Casker is one of those bands that I either really enjoy listening to specific songs or don’t find a lot of interest in. It’s not that their electro-pop style isn’t good, their music was always reintroduced when I had no interest in the genre. With many bands using electronica or synth to accent their music, it’s strange to listen to Casker again after their 2010 album.

Described as jazz lounge or downtempo, the duo in Casker create melodic instrumentals that both sing over. The 12 song album features their signature style which has a lot of empty verses and bridges between vocals. When described as downtempo, a good portion of the songs follow that style, but they do get a bit more energetic with “Wonderful.”
I think that 여정 is a mood-specific album to listen to because it’s very well produced and orchestrated, but it doesn’t have the “any time of the day” feel. Fans of Casker will definitely enjoy listening to 여정 because it’s a sign that the band still creates great music. The only problem is that for people who aren’t strict fans of the genre may just pass the album by.
여정 is worth listening to for anyone who’s heard of Casker, but it may not be the most interesting album you’ve heard this year. -


I don’t listen to Casker that often. Really only when the mood hits. But when I saw Junno‘s Shift, I figured it might be worth a listen. I’m surprised at the difference it has to the music of Casker. It’s much more downtempo, slower in melody, and generally plays as really nice background music. This applies to at least the first song, “Floater.”

Since the EP is five songs, it’s not able to make a full statement through the music, but more of a sample. “시간을 믿은 시간이 너무 길었다” reminds me a lot of the ambient electronic music that I’ve been listening to more lately. The layers of samples and beats combine to create an overall slow tempo with the synth additions artificially giving the song structure. That changes in “거절 (Feat. Azin).” The addition of vocals presents a new dimension to the song. It has similar features to “시간을 믿은 시간이 너무 길었다,” but the vocals provide a different melody.
Shift’s style changes again with “Poly Evil (Feat. 짙은)” because of the more sorrow-sounding vocals. That’s mixed within a pulsing bass beat along with samples to create a strange, electronic ballad song. It doesn’t follow the genres facets exactly, but does become addictive. It’s my favorite song on the EP for sure. The final song “후일담” brings the tempo down with what could have been a slow indie song, but replaces standard instruments with electronica. The core of the melody comes from a piano, but the extra effects expand the song really well.
I don’t know how different Shift would be to Casker, but I do like this EP a lot. It has elements of electronic music that I enjoy a lot. The slow tempos allow you to get immersed in the songs really easily. Junno’s arrangements are perfect for background music though on the first listen, you’ll want to hear each song carefully. -
