Chung Ha

Querencia [Indie Exclusive]

CD: $26.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $11.49 Download

K-Pop's new diva, found in the jewelry box called `Querencia'.

Divas have a very special presence in the history of Korean popular music.

Kim Choo-ja, the most famous singer of the "Team Shin Jung-hyeon" that opened a new paradigm for psychedelic rock and soul in the late 1960s, presented radical and sensual charisma like Janis Joplin and Betty Davis. Kim Wan-sun led the age of the new wave K-Pop in the 80s and brought new wave rock and synthpop into the mainstream, opening a new era of never-before-seen dance music. The emergence of Uhm Jung Hwa led to even more trendy visuals and sensual music in the 90s, Lee Hyori brought authentic hip-hop and R&B into the mainstream, and BoA changed the paradigm for K-Pop by taking a leap as a global pop star. All divas deserve to be remembered as historical events that created turning points of the ages.

So who is the diva that will carry on this legacy in the current K-Pop scene? Seldomly occurring in the idol market that has been reestablished in group units over the past few years, CHUNG HA rose as a performer to capture the public's heart with her explosive energy, while making a name for herself as a solo vocalist with a captivating voice, proving her own potential with her career. Through collaborations with artists that belong to various music scenes and genres, from idols to R&B/hip-hop artists, and 88rising's Rich Brian, CHUNG HA has broadened her horizon and evolved. Her first official full-length album "Querencia" shows even bolder directionality and richer details in her musical endeavor.

Her official 21-track album encompasses various contemporary pop and dance music styles that cross the boundaries of house, Latin, afrobeat, and bass. "Querencia" is divided into four chapters based on the jump-off points of conceptual tracks in the themes of Noble, Savage, Unknown, and Pleasures. While the contrast of opposing and intense concepts that each of the chapters symbolize are grossing genres, they constitute CHUNG HA's artistic identity as she completes her own universe through complex and diverse narratives of emotion.

  • Magazine (Photo + Lyric Book / 240 pages)
  • Envelope + CD (21 Tracks)

Carla Bruni

French Touch [LP]

Vinyl: $22.98 UNAVAILABLE

MP3 Album: $11.49 Download

Video

French Touch brings together a delightful trove of sentimental pop favorites; all reimagined in Carla Bruni's intimate and moving acoustic style and chosen for their personal significance in her own words, songs that inspire the French term for love at first sight a coup de foudre. Coup de foudre more or less also describes what happened when Bruni met Grammy award winning producer, composer, and musician David Foster after an L.A. performance in 2014. Foster volunteered to produce Carla's next record on the spot, and the two began a transatlantic sharing of songs, which was then shaped during twin recording sessions in Paris and L.A.

French Touch is warm and familiar, and inimitably Carla. Richly melodic, warm yet minimal, and often slyly playful - all the arrangements in this collection have been given that French Touch, and still have all the universal appeal as their originals, albeit with a sultry flavor all their own.
