The folks over at Loose Union are putting together a FREE compilation CD featuring a bunch of Korea's best Independent Music!   

Loose Union is as the name implies. A collective of musicians, visual artists, and videographers with a common goal; to work together and to make good art. It all loosely started in the Fall of 2011 when a group of friends played and shot a live show on a rooftop. Then in April of the following year they put together their first official show and Loose Union was born.
This is a group that takes the DIY attitude seriously. Rather than outsourcing work to a third-party they incorporate them into the union. They are part record label, part promotional company, and part video production company. 

And now two years into this venture they are celebrating with the creation of their first compilation album. The compilation album, Loose Union #1 is comprised of a single track contributed by a various selection of Seoul’s best underground solo artists and bands. Not centered around a particular musical style or genre, Loose Union #1 is a collection of music that embodies the spirit of Seoul’s DIY culture. The compilation album highlights the best new music emerging from Korea’s burgeoning independent music scene. After the initial release event the album will be distributed by various outlets within Korea. It will also be submitted to various media outlets for radio play outside of Korea.  

The compilation album will feature bands from the following list :

- Les Sales
- Love X Stereo
- Juck Juck Grunzie
- New Blue Death
- Yamagata Tweakster
- The Killer Drones
- Genius
- Strikers
- Slow Dress
- Used Cassettes
- Vidulgi Ooyoo
- Table People
- We Dance
- Yukari
- Tierpark
- Gutenbirds


Loose Union will be hosting a compilation CD release party at club DGBD in Hongdae in May 31st. Both the show and the album are FREE!  So now you've simply run out of excuses not to go. Along with plenty of tunage to go around, Loose Union will also be printing up some T-shirts.
