In 2008, pop punk band Tacopy recorded a song called 치고 달려라 for KBS N Sports 2008 Pro Baseball. Two years has passed, and a 2010 version of the song has been recorded for KBS 2TV baseball variety show Invincible Baseball Team (천하무적야구단). It was released as a digital single on May 7, also including an instrumental version, the 2008 version, and a 2009 version featuring G-Idea.
Not quite ready to release a full length album yet, Lazybone returned with release no. 4.7 on May 6. It’s a digital single with only the song 우린 모두 챔피언, which features a children’s choir previously seen on some Superstar show. The song itself is a fairly pompous creation where Lazybone’s old ska-punk sound sees some revival.
Singer/songwriter 조우람 released his first digital single, 고양이와 선인장 Episode 1 (Part.1) on May 6. Working a guitar and keyboard, the single contains song 나는 너를 꿈꾼다 and a piano theme version of the same.
All female rock band Storyseller is back with a mini album! Called Super Girls, the CD has been out since May 11 and judging from the corresponding music video their production budget has increased a lot since the making of My Dear two years ago. This time two of the songs, Super Girl and Aio, have also been recorded in English.
Fun indie rock band Tobacco Juice has returned with their second full length album, 설레발. The CD came out today, May 20, but the mp3s have been sold since May 12. Offering 10 new songs, the one called 청춘 features Dalmoon.
I have to say that I’m kind of digging the Storyseller sound, even if the band name is a little… unappealing to native English ears. I liked them as Bloody Cookie too, but the new sound is a lot more radio-friendly and still largely rocks.
