W&Whale
지난해 9월 첫 번째 앨범 “HARDBOILED’를 발매하고, 국내 최고의 일렉트로닉 팝 밴드로 확실하게 자리잡은 이 2009년 3월, 1.5집 “Random Tasks”를 발매한다. 기존의 남성 3인조 밴드 W에서 Whale이라는 매력적인 보컬을 새로 영입하여 뜨거운 반응을 불러일으켰던 은 1.5집 “Random Tasks” 통하여 신곡은 물론, 1집 수록 곡들의 리믹스 버전을 담은 앨범을 선보이며, 2009년 1월 15일부터 2월 21일까지 Gallery 2에서 열린 전시회를 통해 그 동안의 음악적 실험들을 현대미술 작품들과 연결해 표현하였고 그 과정에서 만들어진 다양한 시도들을 모아 Random Tasks라는 제목의 앨범으로 발표하게 되었다.

타이틀 곡은 힘든 시기를 보내고 있는 고교생들과 그 시기를 넘긴 우리 모두에게 들려주는 응원가로서 경쾌한 비트와 시원한 웨일의 목소리가 함께 잘 어우러지는 신나고 리듬감 넘치는 음악으로서 중독성 있는 후렴구와 폭발적인 애드립은 웨일의 가창력을 돋보이게 해준다. 또한, 첫 단독 공연에서 뜨거운 반응을 불러 일으켰던 웨일의 자작곡 와 시원한 바람을 맞으며 여행을 떠나는 듯 한 느낌을 주는 신곡 , 발라드의 형식이지만 베이스가 정중동의 리듬감을 가지고 있는 <별똥별> 등 성숙해가는 음악적 과도기의 모습과 2집에 대한 기대감을 들게 하는 음악들이 수록되어있다. 여기에, 작년 한해 대중들에게 많은 사랑을 받은 은 클래지콰이의 리더 겸 프로듀서 ‘DJ CLAZZI’와 최고의 뮤지션 ‘윤상’에 의해 각각 재탄생 되었으며, 소리 없이 많은 사람들의 사랑을 받은 는 스웨덴의 천재 뮤지션 ‘Cloud’, <아가사 크리스티의 이중생활>은 국내 최고의 DJ인 ‘Soulscape’ 에 의하여 새롭게 REMIX, 재탄생 되었다.

W&Whale are Se-Se-Sensational! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
[Disk Time : 41’55]

With an already award winning album (as far as I’m concerned ^_^ ) with “Hardboiled” I couldn’t wait to get my mitts on this CD. Not only another “W&Whale” album, but an electronic mix CD (well mostly) and sporting two more versions of my excellent fav song “Rocket Punch Generation”. As you’d imagine by this alone, it didn’t take many seconds before Random Tasks was e-tailing it to my shopping cart! Absolutely.

Although logical to anticipate if an album measures up to your expectations, I was confident here and after hearing this Hardboiled+ album its not only good - its megafantiastic and another CD to shower this duo with praises they deserve. W&Whale are one of Korea's greatest modern musical talents! They write additively catchy pop, funky soul ballads, hints of rock, lounge, upbeat pop and stylish synth pop, but with irony and poignant clarity. Whale as such a sweet r’n’b laced light rock voice, too, and their syrupy brilliance of upbeat song mechanics and melancholia awareness is brilliant. New bittersweet songs like “Blue” and “Dirty Jean Blues” proving that!

Certainly a more electro-pop CD considering DJ mixed versions from “Hardboiled” and by half of W&Whale sporting Kraftwerk Man Machine era red shirts. But no doubting W&Whale write very melodious and lovely songs (also writing for drama and film music). Although a ‘mix’ album with stylish new electronic versions of “R.P.G (two mixs to each Hardboiled versions) “To Young To Die” and others, this CD graces additional brilliant new mid tempo soul lounge ballads and RnB with stand outs being “Blue”, “S**t Star” [track 5] and “Dirty Jean Blues”.

Certainly my upbeat electro-synth pop fix is well catered for (thank you guys) as all mixs are great. Love “Moonlight” and “To Young To Die” Six Feet Under mix! If you want a catchy new 80’s dance tune to repeat play though, just listen to the superb “High School Sensation” (Gee! So good!). Also “Random Track #2 Sound Train” is a corker” Pure 80s synth pop at its excruciating best that puts W&Whale well within the hit makers of great synth pop. I’ve listened to Random Tasks twice so far, and would have overlook stuff, but had to mention this CD being another highly recommended upbeat K-pop album. If you like Loveholic you also can’t fail to like this. Somewhat soul, lounge and funky too. W&Whale make everyday downbeat become transformed into upbeat positveness, albeit with irony. Love W&Whale!
