South Korea's Genius release 3rd album, "Beaches"

I think this is the first post we've done on a South Korean band - and hopefully not the last! Check out Genius, whose third album, Beaches, just came out February 1 on Helicopter Records.

They tell us, "Korea is hell for rock and roll so we hope to reach an international audience." 

They have an impressive resume, having played with Japandroids, This Will Destroy You, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ra Ra Riot, No Age, The King Khan & BBQ Show, French Horn Rebellion, Jeffrey Lewis, Carsick Cars, Xiu Xiu and Retros, plus lots of others.

They list their influences as "Ralph Wiggum, pro wrestling, punk '76, Pedro the Lion, pulp comics, schlock films, cold grapes, Al Bundy, dry socks, The Walkmen, Bob's Burgers, Pavement, drunk ballads, and the young Chow Yun Fat." So, there is basically no way they could suck.
