It appears boonga Boonga Record has replaced it’s 수공업소형음반 series with the 상업음반 series released on sublabel 쑥고개청년회. No. 17 was released on April 15 and saw Cosmos Sound make an EP debut with 스무살. The bgbg blog offers a sample of the title track.
Heavy metal trio Naty returned with second full length album Pride on April 14. The members all have a long history as members of various metal bands including Turbo and Monkey Head.
Girl duo Eighteen started out as a punk act in September last year, but realized it didn’t fit their mindset and has since moved on to what they call a more pure sound. On April 12 the girls self-released a six track EP called 19가 되기 싫어.
Modern folk duo Railroad self-released an EP called Naturally on April 13. With sweet female vocals over lovely melodies they aspire to evoke the same sentiments as Kings of Convenience. Listen through the entire EP either on Myspace or via the official YouTube channel.
