Seriously, anyone else who uses the phrase “OPM is dead” should be the one rotting now.
In reality, what you usually see on your favorite Sunday afternoon variety show, or even what you hear on your daily top ten round up, are merely only a quarter of the OPM scene. If you want to experience and know the true OPM happenings, an immersion is the solution. Explore your Spotify feed, attend gigs—there's so much talent to discover!
Speaking of talent, we’re pretty goddamn stoked about The Rest Is Noise Year-End. The Rest Is Noise Year-End is a multi-genre event that celebrates local music. It will bring together 20 acts for one special last show for 2017. This 12-hour live music experience will happen on November 25 (Saturday), 2:00 PM, at Century City Mall Event Space in Makati City.
From Orange & Lemons to Ang Bandang Shirley, Autotelic to Aia De Leon, this year’s lineup is WILD. As such, we thought we’d round up all the songs we can’t wait to hear on the gig day itself. Let this be your playlist for today!
1) “Hanggang Kailan” by Orange & Lemons
Though they are one member less, we are still excited to hear the trio of Clem Castro, Ace Del Mundo, and JM Del Mundo sing this all-time favorite. Umuwi na sila, baby!
2) “Better Together” by CRWN
If you need some chill, funky vibes, Manila based producer CRWN’s got your back.
3) “Hey Barbara” by IV of Spades
Warning: Extreme head bopping once you hit play.
4)”Nakauwi Na” by Ang Bandang Shirley
Sing along to this while you look at your girlfriend’s eyes. Feels like home, eh? Ready the “mush” pit!
5) “Dreamer” by Skymarines
This dream-pop tune by Isa Aniga AKA Skymarines will bring you to a trance, all while making you feel as if you’re floating in your own world.
6) “Forget You” by The Rusty Machines
If you’re looking for an upbeat beach-slash-break-up anthem, this one is for you.
7) “Di Matitinag” by BLKD X The Tooters
Raise your fists! This one’s our favorite protest song as of the moment. Read our review of this song right here.
8) “Choose Me” by Moonwlk
Heart-wrenching, soul-crushing, don’t listen to this if you are nursing a broken soul FYI.
9) “At Last” by Tandems '91
Listening to this “will make you wanna…” just like what the song says.
10) “Drunk” by Cheats
Perfect for your walwalan or chillnuman nights with the barkada!
11) “TCK” by NINNO
12) “Kathang Isip” by Ben&Ben
Now, this one’s not for the faint of heart.
13) “Perfect” by She's Only Sixteen
She's Only Sixteen certainly makes us believe that OPM is in perfect condition.
14) “Laro” by Autotelic
“Isa, dalawa, tatlo, iiwanan mo ako” *cue tears*
15) “Steady” by BP Valenzuela
Everyone’s obsessed with BP for a reason.
16) “Inconsistencies” by Oh, Flamingo!
Intro pa lang, ulam na.
17) “Mimimomomumu” by SimilarObjects
You never heard Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker” this way before.
18) “Sundo” by Aia De Leon
Nothing beats the original if you ask us. #SorryNotSorry
19) “Longing For” by Ourselves The Elves
Reserve this one for those gloomy, rainy nights alone.
20) “Banal na Aso, Santong Kabayo” by Joey Ayala at Ang Bagong Lumad with Dong Abay
