(Oops! Forgot to update this part..) Sorry everyone! A combination of slow internet connection and horrible public transport (snow…) has left me far too little time to catch up on the posting since last weekend. I should do better in the next few days, but for now (on time!) here’s this week’s indie chart from Bugs.

Dalmoon released first EP 옥탑라됴 on January 22. Judging from what I could find at YouTube, the duo has a sweet pop sound full of twee moments, and I think the album info says something about them being the female version of Kings of Convenience? It appears Soda (aka Oldfish) has been very involved in the making of their songs.
Although released in 2008, according to CD Baby, it was not until January 21 that Snowing Map’s Yoon Dongju Project – Chaper 1 got a digital release at Bugs. As the album title implies, the songs revolves around poet Yoon Dong-Ju and it contains songs from 14 of his poems and they can all be sampled at CD Baby.
Muddy Buddy’s Nice Body, or just Muddy Buddy’s will release their first – and it seems also their last – mini album on February 2. The title is 우리가 사라진 이유 and if the album info is to be trusted it should be a spectacular offering from this indie rock band.
Catchy pop/rock band High Quality Face debuted with single One on January 13. I took a liking to them as soon as I heard the title track, and although somewhat different in style I’m liking single track 사랑해 too.
