First up, a couple of Muscle Snog solo project songs for you. The first is from Mai Mai under the name Asthma Writers Union and is called analog box work 005. Listen to it here and remember that this Sunday is RESO 9 featuring Yan Jun. More on that here.
I mentioned the other day that Vivien from Muscle Snog, also
known as the Curry Soap, has been re-recording some of her old songs and you can
check those out here. You'll also see a couple of new things to listen to as well
- This is Not a Sad Song and a lo-fi version of the same track. A lot of the stuff
there is pretty minimal at the moment, but she's planning to record some new material
with a collaborator that will be more in the vein of Little Northern Europe.
She's also going to be getting a little help from Sun Ye, who
nevertheless has found time to upload a demo on his own Douban. He's called it Boojii Reserved, the name of the band he's in and their album, but I'm not too sure what the relationship is I'm afraid, as Reserved hasn't been released yet. See what you think by clicking here.
Far from reserved, Gia, formerly of Hang on the Box, has come out with a new album on
Some other new songs coming out of the capital are courtesy of Casino
Demon, who have put up two new tracks on their Douban. CD, incidentally, have taken a bit of a knock in the comments on CMR recently.
Regardless of your view on the band, there's an interesting debate going on there surrounding the recent Sing for China tour of the US - go check it out.
