After writing half the post earlier this week, Hyang Music started acted up on me again and I couldn’t get to the information I needed to finish it. New attempt now with more added to the list: some new releases out the week that just passed:
Indie pop project team Mayland has debuted with a self-titled EP. The team offers a light tone of music paired with the sweet vocals of Be Sweet. “Mayland” is their name of a “heart-warming” “music island”. Don’t miss the music video for 우연한 여행의 첫사랑!
Acoustic duo BS & Jo consists of singer/songwriter Becks and harmonica/percussionist guy Josh. The two have just self-released their first EP, 난 슬플 땐 기타를 쳐… 음악과 당신만이 날 위로할 수 있거든, on CD-R. Check out the short teaser here, and if you want to hear more check out the sampler teaser here.
Big Baby Driver is another alias for SP, vocalist and main songwriter of Atombook. Although she’s been recording singer/songwriter tunes in the folk vein of Atombook under this name for many years already (she was one of the first Korean artists I found sharing demos online), the self-titled album that came this week is the first official release. Listen to four songs off the album through Electric Muse’s SoundCloud.
Five member strong rock band Eastern Side Kick EP debuted with the release of 흑백 만화 도시 last year and has now followed up with a second EP simply called Second EP Album. Earlier this year the band showcased EP track 무스탕 on Nylon Music TV and earlier this month the band got on EBS Space playing another EP song, 다소 낮음 for Hello Rookie.
Loved hearing the sound of Mayland’s “be sweet”.
I find what I’ve heard of Mayland so far super lovely. Makes me curious to check out more of Be Sweet’s solo material as well.
That Mayland song is pure honey to my ears, thanks for the intro!
