산울림 [Sanullim] :: 가지마 [Don’t Go]

Removed from the psychedelic rock and baroque pop that helped Sanullim take Korea by storm in the late 70s, “Don’t Go,” the penultimate track off 1986’s Volume 11, is all astral-funk and disco spunk. A growling bassline slinks across star-bound synths and Kim Chang-wan’s hushed desperation—clothed in seduction but rooted in obsession. Landing somewhere between the Stones’ “Emotional Rescue” and the Buckaroo Banzai theme song, it’s an intergalactic boogie serving dance floors and rocket ships alike. | c depasquale
