alternativechina: Interview: Duck Fight Goose Shanghai band Duck Fight Goose play expansive, constructivist, space traveler rock with lots of booming, wrenching guitars and buzzing, twittering loops, and general froo-ahh yelling about fires and things like that.  For the past several years they’ve been the stand-out live act amongst Shanghai’s small community of local rock bands — an […]

2011春天吶喊 City Cat-城市貓樂團-虎姑婆…[悠遊墾丁] (by uuktsir)

Here is City Cat (城市貓) from Taiwan. They play twee pop/folk pop. This live clip all I could find on YouTube so far; I definitely recommend hearing more of their tunes over at Indievox, and Streetvoice. Follow on Facebook. By the way, if you go to their fb, you’ll see much more about their store/designs than the band, so I’d suggest going to the StreetVoice link and clicking the music tab; there’s plenty to enjoy there! =)

Weekend Pie.週末派 – 自己陪自己 (Music Video) (by evelyntofu)

This is acoustic duo Weekend Pie (leader 王立妞 Wang Li Niu and guitarist Jimmy Song) from Taiwan, with a song from their 2011 debut EP, 歌唱著旅行 (Singing Traveler).
I can’t locate them on Streetvoice or Indievox yet, but you can see what they’re up to on Facebook.
If you look on YouTube, there are also clips of Wang Li Niu (not entirely sure of her name) playing solo.

“旺福 or Wonfu is a Taiwanese alternative band. They have a very American sixties pop music sound and even dress like they came from the era of the Beatles or the Beach Boys. Their songs are in Mandarin and some are in Taiwanese.”

-Last FM

——————–

This looks like another video from the earlier days of WonFu, with Judy doing the singing. I knew Mami wasn’t an original member, but tonight is the first time I’ve seen clips from before she joined the band. Anyway, this is yet another catchy tune from the WonFu gang. =)
