Comments Mr. LAZY:

‘The Savichevs are dead’ is inspired by the siege of Leningrad in WW2. And the diary of Tanya Savicheva from there. I created this track in 3 parts, Before the siege, While they were sieged, After the siege, and end of war. I tried to create tragic atmosphere by the war, and the tragedies left behind after the siege.

RIP Tanya Savicheva and RIP all Russians who were sacrificed in WW2

Asked about the update about the Covid-19 situation in Seoul, Jimi commented: “I’m not a musician with doing gig, so literally it did not affect any of my biz. However, it changed much for musicians who makes for living by gig, and many of them jumped into creating Youtube or other streaming to maintain their reputation. And to make for living by that.

However, the impact to South Korea was not tha much, so now the music industry is slowly moving anyway. Just festivals, or big concerts are on hold, or already canceled mostly. So it is sad that foreign bands could not arrange any concert in Korea for this year.”

Mr. Lazy is a solo project of Jimi Kim (from South Korea) who is also known as a conceptual artist. Jimi Kim is working through his philosophical research of Deconstruction & Politics.His musical composition style is strongly influenced by Godspeed You! Black Emperor / Silver Mt. Zion / Set Fire to Flames / Mogwai / Yaan Tiersen / Erik Satie.Mr. Lazy is mainly working on post rock, noise rock, and drone music through Jimi Kim’s philosophical researches, and those tracks are including his strong political message in title, and expression. 

At the same times, he is also working on his piano, indie, alternative, psychedelic rock tracks which he targeted to submit for cinematic usage. Unlike his post rock works, his piano, indie, alternative, psychedelic rock works are basically having ambient, classical, smooth vibes with his own feelings. But at the same time, it mostly has intense at the end to make explosion in ambient atmosphere which Mr. Lazy personally prefers. 

The main concern in composing for Mr. Lazy is the structure of the music, and the mixture of harmony between instruments including vocals. In this sense, Mr. Lazy prefers to compose instrumental tracks mainly. However, he also compose tracks with vocals, but vocals in here is mostly used as one instrument which is part of harmony, not the main instrument which gets all the spotlight from the track. Mr. Lazy released first post rock album as band name Roadsign on 2014. On 2018, he started his own solo project of post rock album. His 1st self-title album was released on 2019 Feb.

With the end of the year slowy approaching, we are asking most of our guest artists to share their essential 2020 albums or recordings that felt still relevant this year. Here are the top selections from MR. LAZY.

Matt Elliott came with his new album Farewell to All We Know” – offers Jimi.

“His depressing sounds, and the ability of awesome track contruction is always inspring for me.

Also Jaga Jazzist came with new album Pyramid. They area always worth to try.”

And not new, and pretty classic, but always Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven by GYBE is the biggest inspiration for me all time
