The new year hasn’t come that far just yet, so I figured I’d catch up on the the Bugs indie charts posting before getting to the most current one. Starting with the chart from the first week of 2011.

On December 6 cutesy singer/songwriter Yozoh released a new EP. The five track strong release is called 우리는 선처럼 가만히 누워 and the EP main track held the first spot of Bugs’ indie music chart for as many weeks. 조금만 더 가까이, from the movie starring Yozoh with the same name, is included in both an original and a cinema version.
On January 5, five member strong rock band T-Sound released an EP called T-Sound vol.2. As the name implies it followed a previous eponymous debut, dated March 2010.
Electronic pop project Nora debuted on January 7 with a single called Quizas. It holds two songs both with vocals and in instrumental versions, the title track featuring the vocalist of rock band AshGray and 소실점 where Lune sings.
Jam-Tex debuted with single 폭풍같은 연애가 진짜 연애의 시작이다 on January 6. Although I haven’t been able to dig up any info on the duo it seems the three track release could be classified as indie rock and the songs upon it appear to be very concerned with the subject of love.
Canaria Salon, that debuted with digital single Blue Sky late September, returned with a six track release called LoveBy on December 31. It includes both the first single and 알잖아 from the November single with the same name.
Lovely girl duo J Rabbit has a pretty big presence on YouTube thanks friendz.net. They put out their first digital single, Take One, on November 27 and it holds two acoustic pop songs. In addition to the song that entered the chart during the first week of 2011 there is also a song called 내일을 묻는다 .
