Following debut album Seoulight, earning her the Best Pop Album award at the KMA2012, Neon Bunny returned with the release of EP Happy Ending yesterday, July 31st. Further developing the 80′s and 90′s synthesizer sound that characterized her first album, Happy Ending features heavier beats and bitchier lyrics.
A new Neon Bunny music video has already been filmed, but so far only a teaser video set to Happy Ending lead track “왕자님” has been revealed (see below the jump).
Also from the doggyrich collective, Bryan Cho more often found using the alias The Black Skirts will be releasing a set of demos tomorrow, August 2nd. Gathering 20 bedroom demos total recorded between 2003-2008, the title of the compilation is My Feet Don’t Touch The Ground (And I’m So Winded I Can’t Sing For You Today). It’s a re-issue with new artwork of a release that was first pressed to be handed out to fans attending a The Black Skirts show during spring 2009.
