[The Revue] Thirty 2017 Albums Not to Be Overlooked (2017.12.23)
by Ben Yung
Love X Stereo (South Korea) – 37B
While most still associate Korean music with Psy, people should pay attention to Love X Stereo, whose latest album, 37B, is reminiscent of the scintillating synth-pop of CHVRHCES. It is a wonderfully blissful record that will have you reflect on the momentous times of your life and the new memories created this holiday season. If you need a soundtrack for opening gifts, this is our pick. Another reason to pick up this album – expect to hear more about Love X Stereo during the Olympics, as they’ll be releasing music during the Games.
