Every time ALAMAT releases a new music video, of course it is worthy of special mention. And their MV for “Gayuma” might just be their most striking and captivating yet.
“Maharani” became one of the fan-favorite tracks from ALAMAT’s Pasulong album last year. And the long-awaited music video definitely brings the excellent song to vivid life.
Right on schedule, my indecisive self says hello once again! During my annual New Year’s Eve/Day listen to my favorite songs of the year, these ten songs popped up on the playlist and they definitely left a lasting impression on my 2022 music year. So here’s ten more tracks worthy of my Top 50 (60?!) of 2022!
It’s that time of year again! Here are my 50 favorite songs of 2022!
Hearing and seeing ALAMAT effortlessly blend together distinct Filipino qualities into modern pop music was such a great experience for me. Being Cagayano-Kalinga-American, hearing Ilocano in pop music that I’d normally hear being performed in English or Korean was amazing. And all of this is probably the reason why ALAMAT has become my P-pop bias!
Hello! So starting next week, my DryedMangoez Music Monday thoughts will temporarily move to Thursdays. With The Amazing Race Australia premiering this Monday, my Sundays and Mondays and however many days Network 10 decides to air TARAu will keep me busier than usual. All in addition to other real life stuffs too.
So! For as long as The Amazing Race Australia will be on the air (and who knows how long it’ll be what with their 98+ Legs), Music Monday will Temporarily become Thursday Tunes!
Looking forward to some more great music to listen to, but on Thursdays for a while. Hee.
And what better way to kick off Thursday Tunes than with these two striking new tracks from CIX and, yes, ALAMAT!
How about some Thursday Tunes? Because ALAMAT’s lead single off of their upcoming first! mini-album just can’t wait for Monday to have me gushing over it. The chill heartbreak vibes of “Say U Love Me” offer ALAMAT another opportunity to show off their talents and impressive versatility.
Check out these great tracks this week from ALAMAT, E’LAST, DKB and VERIVERY.
There have been “diverse” DryedMangoez Music Mondays before, but this week tops them all. Diverse in style, diverse in language and definitely diverse in quality. A VERY diverse mix of songs from ALAMAT, OWV, BTOB and N.MIXX.
After checking out VXON’s debut a few weeks, it got me wondering about what else P-pop has to offer. Aside from the huge strides SB19 has made to reenergize Filipino pop music the last few years, I’ve been only vaguely aware of how much “P-pop” is booming lately. Without TFC or GMA Pinoy TV subscriptions for now two years, my only exposure to potential P-pop artists or songs are when they randomly pop up on the Twitters or the TikTok or a YouTube recommendation.
