[NEW RELEASES] BUSKER BUSKER
There’s no tremendous change to Busker Busker’s songs on this album compared to the first. They are still simple and ordinary - deceptively so, as I think that is what makes the group’s songs so addictive and listenable. The band’s vocalist and songwriter, Jang Beom-joon, still has a voice and way to playing his acoustic guitar tunes that blends perfectly with the band - Kim Hyung-tae on bass and Brad Moore on drums - creating a folk-rock style that’s unique in Korea. If the trio’s first album talked about falling in love, this album deals more about break ups and love’s wounds. Jang’s voice sounds a bit more doleful, probably befitting the autumnal season when his fans are listening to this new release.
