And here's where you can hear it.This 3-song sampler was released on my birthday. It is the precursor to a more complete work called Tongue-in-Beats, a collection of mashups, remixes and originals borrowing heavily from samples of Language-learning CDs, Dirty South MCs, Classic Prog Rock Bands and 20th Century Russian Composers...basically things that are always on my iPod anyways.
Music-Makers of Shanghai,
It's time to begin working on the next installment of We Are Shanghai! We're inviting you to submit a song for Volume 2, to be released later this year. Volume 1 was well-received, and we're looking forward to putting together a stellar lineup of bands and artists for the next one.
Here's the deal: You have until the end of June to submit to us a high-quality .wav file of a song of yours. We'd prefer it if songs were under 5 minutes in length, but that's not a hard and fast rule. Last time, we had more submissions than we could use, and we're really hoping to get even more this time around. We're looking for good songs from a wide spectrum of genres. We want songs and artists that represent what's happening in Shanghai and who are actively shaping the city's music scene.While all tracks are welcome, this compilation is a great opportunity for you to showcase new music. As such, we hope that you'll provide us with something that was recorded relatively recently, if not a new song altogether. If you guys need help, JC and Nichols may be available for mixing and other recording assistance.
Also, if you are a graphic artist and would like to contribute to the cover art, let us know! Please send your submissions and other questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bren, Nichols, Adam, JC and Ivan
If you were at Duck Fight Goose's release for their brilliant new album a few weeks back, you'll have noticed a bunch of cameras in Yuyintang. Some of them were from Noisey, the music channel thing from the Vice people. This here is the resulting video. More on DFG and the album here.
