DryedMangoez Music Monday

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything music-related on DryedMangoez.com. But I’ve often tweeted musical opinions and preferences on Twitter over the years instead.

I’ve decided to do a regular, weekly feature of my favorite artists, songs and perhaps some of what I’m listening to currently. Sometimes reviews, sometimes appreciation. But fair warning, I’m not much of a musical person. I’m not going to intricately critique songs or vocals. I’m not going to know technical terms. Heck, I barely know how to distinguish different genres of music. (lol)

Basically, I’ll be expressing my personal preferences and basic opinions. It’s all coming from a basic listener of music who is a fan of artists.

Another warning though, it’ll likely be K-pop related most of the time. But even if you’re not particularly into Korean pop music, maybe I’ll be able to recommend something you will end up liking one of these weeks!
