YesAsia Editorial Description

Brownie Speaks? As eccentric as their name sounds, Korean female electronica trio Brownie Speaks's first released album Phantasms Electro Lounge is one happening album jam-packed with nothing but pure authenticity. Freakhouze (a.k.a. DJ Memphis) takes charge of the album's entire production as the executive producer, injecting in a load of trendy, sophisticated funk. Brownie Speaks consists of composer/sessionist Brownie, vocalist/image artwork creator Gaichoi, and Moon Kyu, who pens lyrics. Mixing their own flair with a variety of genres like lounge, Bossa Nova, Brazilian, and shibuya kei, their album brings originality and eccentricity back to the music scene. The principal track 13 wall ("The Month of 13" - Track 4) contains poetic lyrics that speaks of an imaginary time and space - the 13th month that follows December. Another highlight includes Mary Mary (Track 14) which features Brownie's 2-step beat string arrangement and Gaichoi's springy vocals, and delivers a snug, romantic feel throughout.

Freakhouze aka DJ Memphis가 프로듀싱한 일렉트로니카 그룹 Brownie Speaks- 당신이 원하던 Phantasms Electro Lounge, 'BROWNIE SPEAKS'의 첫 앨범 [13월]

브라우니 스픽스? 이름부터가 심상치 않아 보이는 그룹이 등장했다. 달콤한 브라우니같은, 요정의 속삭임이라는 뜻의 그들은 일렉트로니카 라운지 장르로 Brownie (작곡, 프로그래밍), Gaichoi (보컬, 이미지아트워크), Moon Kyu (작사 및 사운드&무빙퍼포먼스)로 이루어진 여성 3인 그룹으로 더욱 신비하고 매력적으로 다가온다. 여타의 남성들이나 혼성으로 이루어진 그룹과는 달리, 브라우니 스픽스는 작곡, 작사와 프로그래밍, 쟈켓 아트워크까지 모조리 올인원으로 해내어, 단순히 여성그룹이라고 얕본다면 후회 할 듯 싶다.

브라우니 스픽스의 코드는 라운지, 보사노바, 브라질리언, 시부야케의 영향을 받아 브라우니 스픽스만의 차갑고도 뜨거운 질감의 사운드를 고급스럽게 결합시켰다. 그리고 일렉트로니카 안에서의 실험성과 다양성을 이점으로 하여 끊임없이 입체감 있는 퍼포먼스적 사운드를 이끌어 내고 있으며 , Brownie가 만들어 낸 이국적 멜로디와 클럽 뮤직의 신나는 리듬 섹션, Gai의 공상적인 보이스가 어우러져 로맨틱한 라운지 음악을 들려 준다. 또한!.작년 , 1집 `Reprise or Not`를 발표한 DJ Memphis 가 2008년도 부터 Freakhouze 라는 이름으로 활동중이며 이번 앨범 총프로듀싱 , 제작을 맡았다!!. Freakhouze의 프로듀싱으로 더욱 진가를 발휘하게 된 그들의 음악은 심플함 속에서 군더더기 없이 모던하면서 깊이 있게, 도시적인 세련미를 추구하는 트렌디한 리스너들의 호감을 사기에 충분 할 것이다.

타이틀 곡인 [13월]은 동경하는 그를 향한 바라보고, 듣고, 만지고, 함께 공유하고픈 애통한 심정을 13월이란 가상의 시공간 안에서 담담한 독백체로 시적인 가사를 담고 있다. Brownie가 만들어낸 정제된 멜로디가 마치 꿈꾸는 듯 하고 때로는 차갑기도 한 Gai의 보이스에 잘 녹여져 있다. 그리고 마지막 트랙인 [Mary Mary]는 Freakhouze 의 경쾌한 2-Step 비트와 재잘거리며 대화하는 듯한 Brownie 의 스트링 편곡의 만남이 살랑살랑 봄바람 같은 보이스에 실려 구름위에서 잠든 듯 포근한 사운드를 전해준다.'BROWNIE SPEAKS'의 첫 앨범 [13월]은 도시의 모노톤 소울을 지닌 디지털 로멘티스트들의 감성을 물들일 것이다.

didn't love it. Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
This album is out of print, but I was happy to get it as a gift from a friend.

The packaging was a standard jewel case. The cover art is done by one of the members of the band, gaichoi.

I am sad to say, this album really didn't move me much. A few relatively good songs, Moon's Thought, Love Smile, and the single released from this album, 13 Month (which was a good choice to release as a single, because it is by far the strongest song). The album overall is a bit too laid back for my taste and the music lacks the kind of layering and melodic wonderment that I've come to expect from Korean electro-lounge.

It seemed to want to follow in the styles of Humming Urban Stereo and Casker, but it fell a bit short with the weird breathy singing and sparse music that could only stand as background music for porn.

It was okay but had the potential to be better.

Didn't fall in love with it. :[

Fantasitc mix of electronic, bossa nova and jazz Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
After Brownie’s brief intro, “Breathing” gets things under way with an instrumental jazz-bossa nova beat; tom toms, double bass, keyboards, strings, French accordion pacing a wonderful rhythmic melody. With bird song intro “Rainy Garden”, also a bossa nova introduces Gaichio’s full singing attention with nice upbeat easy listening, jazz-lounge beat. “13” is the first big techno rhythm lounge beat, with catchy and alternating melancholic vocal. T5 is quite haunting with eerie echo repeated sample vocal. A lonely song somewhat, but with synth drum beat, cymbal-clap electronics still keeps things melodic and upbeat. “Run on the Rail” is great, an instrumental with electro drum, lounge style, clap-cymbals and brilliant space techno melody with haunting echo vocals. “Late Afternoon” is more lazy lounge style with Gaichoi’s smoochy jazz vocals over melodic drumbeat, acoustic guitar and electronics. “Ave Reo Branco” as a strong single beat, acoustic guitar, techno and funky Latin American sound. Mid way a haunting saxophone sequence repeats like fog warning amidst the techno house and bossa nova. After a breakfast sound effect bridge piece (a bit Pink Floyd’s Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast?), “85%” bops to yet more bossa nova with guitar, vocal and smoky jazz club ambiance. “Labum” as tom toms, Hammond keyboard and a Latin beat sound, with occasional background vocal. “Solitude” albeit melancholic by title, features upbeat bossa nova electronics and great vocal melody and saxophone refrain. It surges forth with such wonderful melodic bossa nova electro rhythm. Saxophone and children’s voices break the melody here and there. “Love Smile” is a mixture of electronic, bossa nova, tinkling synths with some cinematic soft lounge. Lastly, “Mary Mary” is more the rhythmic romantic pop song.

Brownie Speaks female trio of Brownie, Gaichoi and Moon Kyu and electronic mix producer Freakhouze (DJ Memphis), make for a very unique music combo. A funky original style, upbeat, relaxing and excellently merging various music types. By the lovely light mood electronic dance and lounge, this caters nicely for my electronic music tastes. The blend of lounge, jazz, bossa nova and light dance beats are perfect. “Run on the Rail” is a great little techno house melody along with the upbeat “Solitude”. Certainly light and easy dance sounds. If you like Korean indie artists Humming Urban Stereo and The Melody your sure to enjoy this gem. Purely recommended sophistication.
