New Electric Muse act Army had its debut EP, Dora, released on June 10. The people over at music blog Milk Milk Lemonade have had a listen and also offer an mp3 of the EP’s first track, Wild Horses: Army: Dora EP.
Although Army’s western blues-rock, as MML classified it, is not really my kind of music I must admit that the EP’s final track, Minefield, has grown on me considerably since I first heard it (a much appreciated token for Christmas, handed to me by Electric Music). There are brief samples of that one as well as every other song on the release over at Hyang, or you can listen to it via last.fm where Girl In My Pocket is available as a free download.
In further Electric Muse related news, the label has plenty of interesting releases planned for this year. Personally I’m extremely happy that Kim Mingyu convinced Sunkyeol to release something through Electric Muse. Light and Noise as well as another new Electric Muse act, Bihang Girl (that if I’m not mistaken is reviving some Korean 70s music), too are scheduled to make their debut releases. Atombook on the other hand will return with a second album whereas singer/songwriter Dringe Augh – that has done the recordings at home this time – will release his second EP. Atombook won’t just have a new album out – the first album should be released in Japan this October!
Also, Chinese fans of shoegazers Vidulgi OoyoO have reason to rejoice as the fantastic live band will stop by six Chinese cities for a total of seven shows in August.
