Douban: quick listens
I mainly use Neocha and Myspace Music when linking to band's online music so it's time to give Douban a little exposure.
Douban is a web 2.0 social site for people who like arts, books and music. It has a section where you add groups (for example the groups of bands you like) then you get all their news in one aggregated feed. All the Chinese underground and indie bands use it. And here's a buzzword for you, the last time I talked about Douban with Neocha's Sean Leow he described it as "BBS 2.0". This will mean more to you if you are familiar with the Chinese language net world.
So, they have artist pages for the bands there too and I was just having a look around lately. So ... I give you excellent recent demo tracks from four of Shanghai's upcoming bands:
Sonnet "Stupid Baby" post-pop, brit-pop - listen
Pinkberry "The Pinkberry Song" pop-punk - listen
Five Pointed Star "Dui Bai" nu-metal - listen
Muscle Snog "Female Worker Bee" experimental, post rock - listen
You'll have to open the links in a new tab and press play on the M3 player there (see picture guide).
