Last One Left, Turn Out the Lights: Jambinai and "Time of Extinction"

An amazing riot of noise makes up our random tune for today. The song, called Time of Extinction, is delivered by Jambinai, a South Korean indie band that blends traditional music and instrumentation with hard rock. In their music, you will hear South Korean instruments such as the haegeum, piri and geomungo provide a meditative sound, but incorporated into electronic post rock and building into what Womex describes as "metallic sheets of postapocalyptic angst." While South Korea's indie music scene isn't as well known as K-pop, Jambinai is helping put it on the world map. You can find Time of Extinction on Jambinai's 2012 award winning album Différance.
