Streaming kpop outside Korea reference post

Last updated: 19 July 2015

Unlabeled links are to spotify; pretty much only indie acts are on bandcamp/soundcloud right now, and pandora is kind of useless to link to. Spotify and Soundcloud are streaming; Bandcamp is both streaming and a way to buy directly from the artist (so they get a bigger cut than they do from itunes/soribada/etc.)

Note that Spotify has no clue how to deal with namespace collisions and so does not differentiate in a useful way between artists with the same name, so all the different "Primary" "infinite" and "Henry"s are grouped together in their interface. Also, some artists show up with multiple names. Not all artists are available in all markets.

Labels are listed alphabetically, with Hiphop, not-sorted-by-label rock & indie, and OSTs/Compilations at the end.
LJ has been "helpfully" doing things to the formatting, which I am trying to correct.
