Mot – 이상한 계절 (Strange Season) Review

image 40Mot’s 이상한 계절 has one of my favorite all-time songs “Close.” But the album as a whole is a Korean indie classic. The almost depressing tone of the album only highlights the tracks more.

The lack of aggressiveness in the music actually comes through the vocals, which aren’t even loud, but the stress in the vocal delivery makes each song stronger.

이상한 계절 doesn’t have a weak track, and the differences through each song creates a landscape that hasn’t been duplicated by any other band I have heard before.

I couldn’t recommend listening to Mot any more, except for possibly Donawhale. The indie rock that this band produces is different, but in that special way.
