about

서울을 기반으로 활동하는 젊은 음악인 그룹 ‘Balming Tiger’의 첫번째 믹스테잎 ‘Balming Tiger vol.1 : 虎媄304’ 은(는) 7평 짜리 홍대 앞 호미화방 건물 304호에서 탄생했다.

그들은 이 시대를 살아가는 모든 젊은이들 (특히 이방인) 이 느끼는 정체성의 혼란, 정보의 과다로 인한 스트레스 등을 그들만의 방식으로 표현한다.

이번 첫번째 믹스테잎 ‘Balming Tiger vol.1 : 虎媄304’는 앨범을 관통하는 하나의 주제를 가지고 접근하는 방식이 아닌, 정보화시대의 소비성을 마음껏 향유하듯 다양한 주제들로 풀어냈다.

이들은 추상적인 메세지를 통한 접근이 아닌 직설적인 이미지를 통한 스토리텔링을 가지며, ‘Balming Tiger Comics’ 라는 그들만의 독자적인 세계관을 만들어 가고있다.

‘Balming Tiger vol.1 : 虎媄304’에서 주목할만한 점은 ‘Byung Un의 보컬’과 ‘No Identity의 사운드’ ‘Sanyawn의 디렉팅’ 이라고 볼수있다.
한국형 발라드, 사이키델릭, 힙합, 키치한 요소 등 전혀 어울리지 않을것 같은 둘의 조합을 ‘Sanyawn’의 디렉팅을 통해 조화롭지만서도 뒤죽박죽인 ‘서울’을 표현하는 사운드로 만들어냈다.

특히 보컬 ‘Byung Un’ 은 외로웠던 북미 유학시절 본인이 평소 즐겨듣던 음악들의 커버 영상을 유튜브에 업로드해 일약 유튜브 스타덤에 올랐다. 그 후 우울했던 과거들을 뒤로하고 자신의 음악적인 다양성을 찾아 나서면서 ‘Sanyawn’을 만나게 되었으며, 이윽고 ‘Balming Tiger’가 탄생하게 된것이다.

*Verse 1

Bring me four pho's I’m feeling Vietnamese
Ate so many bowls I think i got the keys
All i see is hungry hungry V.I.Ps
Got everybody thirsty for my 깐풍기

Still cookin’ ramen noodle with American cheese
Runnin’ on the double cuz we're eating 곱빼기
No I don't need your 농심 오뚜기 or 너구리
I’m a skinny bean sprout with a thick 깍뚜기


*Pre-Chorus

Yea i'm a
셰프 like 이
볶 like 연
음 like 복
밥 like 셰프
Smile for the package like a 5 star savage
Take your reservation, 3 months average

셰프 like 이
볶 like 연
음 like 복
밥 like 셰프
Left hand 양꼬치, Right hand Tsingtao
I’m big daddy general tao


***
Cooking five star dishes on the low
Eating five star bitches in a row
일어나 일어나 일어나
Eat your breakfast babe
(X2)

Verse 2

36 chambers of 이연복 셰프
My 짬뽕 따봉 따봉 is the people's choice
Didn't go to china, 맛이 벌써 차이나
나 요리하는 중인데, 어디로 가시나?
탄탄면 면이 너무 단단해
짜파게티 party's over, all she want is 짜장면
Understand? me and my 면 and my 원 stacks forever
Sit with the staff so happy together

*Pre-chorus

Track Name: 못 UNDERSTAND
*Verse 1


좋은 아침 But it's so dark outside

spin a 태양 EP and I feel so bright

check the cabinets, me and my appetite

alright I got some greens

간장 대신 Oriental dressing ?!

***

Don't understand, No understand

못 understand, 못 comprehend 
(다시 말해주세요..)

Don't understand, No understand

못 understand, 못 comprehend 
(I Really 못 Understand..)
***

*Verse 2


좋은 하루 하루 way after noon
 gotta leave the room 

then I ran into someone from the past
 everything's cool

나는 시원하게 산책하는 중

Oh Yea 나는 장 보는 중

but do you remember? 우리 회사?

ooh~ I cannot~

***

*Verse 3


many people many places

world is changing I am wasted

mixer languages exchanging

비어있어 I’ve got nothing
else but Netflix
 waiting for me

foreign movies got me silent

as a happy 시체

may thy will be done da dun

***

*Verse 4


좋은 밤 but it's so bright outside

really need to sleep but it's so bright outside

spin a 샤이니 LP lets get wavy

what have I been up to lately?

salad, 산책, Netflix and me ~

I I I
She cried when I
I f**ked her eyes
She miss her eyes,

I I I
She cried when I
I f**ked her eyes
She miss her eyes

*Verse 1

Body on sale
Dick mint flavor
Used couple times
You could easily figure
Fresh like a photo thot
Banana from that Kitchen freezer
Still flexing
I don’t need’em
Cause I ditch’em
Blow your brains off
If I could

좆달린 버러지 새끼
금욕에 발 딛음
까 발리고 팁 받지
난 현실주의 stripper
My sons flee like my stacks on epoxy
I’m dead voodoo
막 굴러도 안 부러워
I’m obviously a dick sneezer

Should’ve hold that back
I lost it
This the life of a dumb brave man
Fingers make them bleed
Every move is insane
All they could have
My empty fame that may
Or may not fucking please her

금이 아니여도 금의환양
when that son of a
bitch shines
like
the mike in the prime
like
a dime when you polish
don’t go wild with
my dick cause
I be shooting
the speed of a star light

****

*Verse 2

But you know this dick ain’t free
But you know this dick ain’t clean
But you know this dick ain’t kung fu
So what the fuck you want

I think you gotta
keep the complaints
to a down note

Why you talk like
You a broke boy
You from 송파구

Cause I don’t fuck with rich boys
pulling out they mama card
working at they pop’s business
think we not try enough

You think you earned that
mother fucker you a bitch hoe
먹고살기 쉬운줄아는 병신새끼
you a stone cold spoiled

So to wrap up
pme is to blame
you don’t have to understand
you never gave a fuck
and I never did

So to wrap up
pme is to blame
you don’t have to understand
you never gave a fuck
and I never did

So to wrap up
pme is to blame
you don’t have to understand
you never gave a fuck
and I never did

So to wrap up
pme is to blame
you don’t have to understand
you never gave a fuck
and I never did
Track Name: ONCEAGAIN (FEAT. Kim Ximya)
***

I’m at the start, once again
출발선에 도착해서 once again
I know myself, once again

작업실에 돌아와서 once again

I’m in the cut, once again

맨정신으로 일어나 once again

I see the sun, rising high

Rising with me in this cold cold place
***

Verse 1 (Byung Un)


Lord I swear, somewhere i still have love to spare 

Scrolling down my history to see if anybody's there

Yes they are, i'm staying here
Steady-gears hold my organs

I’m insured to have nothing else to lose but myself

I want some fresh air and maybe something to believe in

Fill up my lung with 서울시 for the time being 

My 편의점 is just enough for how i'm eating

I’m only on my way, but i swear i must be living 

Keep my body going as they lock my soul away

Rocky road to soju bottles cracking open once again

No-one knows about success or failure they just lose their breath
Something throws em back to home screen, pay up and try again
부질없이 과거에 음악들이 반복되고

악순환 속에 악수를 하는 내 모습에 익숙해진 게

현상의 신념이 아닐까

Hey mr. DJ join the line up

Spin the wheel of fortune till it falls off

***

Verse 2 (Byung Un)


And that was just another set, another club
Turn up the bass and they love it

Used to be a hip-hop head, in seventh grade bumping 쌈디

Now i'm twenty-something messaging: please show me the money

Life's so funny nowadays i laugh for all the wrong reasons
Spare change from private lessons gotta pay for my breakfast
Spare me your LP collection that doesn't gather me interest

Everyday i can testify to careers 6 feet under

Piling up beneath music videos putting up these numbers

Proud resident of bdsm town, fx generation
Let em eat red velvet, rookie extermination
Wish i could make it in LA before i'm terminated

Speculation from the neighbors looking for a bigger market
병언 with the vocals, got 산이 with the label

Stones throwing everybody from the top of record babel

Gotta open up Ableton and study all the trends

Treadmills in the studio, play it back again~

***

Verse 3 (Kim Ximya)

Cut the crap you see me yelling for some tit flash
Them market is a boo boo just keep cashing for the whip/ flat
just still facts. wack rappers blame it on the shit game
I don’t fuck with conscious music
them music made from hip clans
Not again bitch why you talk like you hate sick heads
Move like you kill rappers you just tickle with a thin pen
Sounds like you a hustle
but you shiver when them big deals coming up
Not again bitch, is that what you posing for

Bitch why you talk like that
Hell of a present when you know about shame
Cause y’all fucking with a rapper with a coupon
Stapling receipts to a book
All you blood suckers sucking up juice from the leftovers

Fuck this, fuck that, once again I’m blowing parties
Shut your fucking ass, once again My money hungry
Fuck this, fuck that, shut your fucking ass
Cause Y’all bunch a shame
Once again
