Male singer/songwriter Kangto, disciple of Lee Han Choul, released his first EP 날개의 흔적 on May 11 including 흐르는 강물처럼 – a title familiar from the Greenplugged Omnibus Album that at least for that release had been recorded together with Lee Han Choul himself.

The first EP from world music act Surisuri Mahasuri, 지구음악, became no.18 in the 쑥고개청년회series from boonga Boonga when it was released on May 11. Out of the four songs on the release three had already been brought some attention by recandplay.net: A Girl on Altai Mountains; Mulana; Dancing Earth.
After several years as producer Cozy Bubbles released first own single 사랑해 on May 13. Several vocalists were featured for this acoustic project, including DOT‘s Kim Hyo Soo on a track called 너의 생일.
With a history as a band member in a number of bands, most recently one going by the name Camomile, Seo Jiseok is now trying his luck on his own with the self-released mini album 도시는 외롭다. Sample it all with Blayer!
