So those release updates for October I mentioned last week probably won’t happen. Can’t say I understand why, but for some reason I find myself busier than usual and I’d rather catch up with November. Some of the November releases you’ll find already in this post – I must say they all seem very interesting!

Once the keyboardist of soul pop act G.Fla, Geol solo debuted with an 8 track release called 미워하면 닮는다 on November 5. What she sounds like on her own I don’t know, but Bugs has her listed as pop rock, indie pop, and electronic pop. G.Fla vocalist Jung In is featured on a track called 껌 whereas I&I Djangdan‘s “Corean voice” Jang-Goon adds some traditional Korean flavor to Geol’s take on Arirang.
Always intriguing experimental artist itta released an album called Re:POPS! on November 5. While fairly often featured by various hiphop artists, it’s now her time to feature some herself after having studied studied ’60-70s Korean psych pop and today’s Korean underground hiphop for her new project album.
Suniswall released album debut 정저지가 on their own some time in October and followed up with a digital release on November 9. The four member band hailing from Gwangju refers to their music as piano pop. The listen section of their website contains short samples for everything from the album, and if you want to hear more there’s YouTube.
Mellow singer/songwriter Tie solo debuted with a digital single called 너에게 달려 in August this year and returned with a five track release by the name of 양 한 마리 양 두 마리 on November 4. It seems he’s got plenty of lovely music to offer. And cute videos to go with it.
