TWO fa­mil­iar names in the lo­cal mu­sic scene, Azmyl Yunor and Ian Chow, will be re­leas­ing their re­spec­tive al­bums in a joint gig to­day (8.30pm) at The Ac­tors Stu­dio @ Lot 10 in Kuala Lumpur.

Azmyl’s seven-track al­bum H. I.D.U.P. – Hari Ini Di Ukay Per­dana is an ac­com­pa­ny­ing disc to his al­bum Warga re­leased last May. His al­bum fea­tures solo acous­tic ver­sions of some of the songs (in­clud­ing crowd favourites Anak Dara, Makan Gaji, Har­mon­ica and Freo) from his up­com­ing al­bum, Azmyl Yunor & the Si­garettes due next year.

Chow’s al­bum Is­sue # 1 takes on a plethora of so­cial is­sues from child pros­ti­tu­tion to sui­cides to dis­crim­i­na­tion. With 11 tracks loosely fall­ing in the al­ter­na­tive pop/rock genre, the al­bum has three bonus tracks – one which he spe­cially com­posed for his re­cent wed­ding and an­other two that are song remixes from his pre­vi­ous al­bum.
