黃玠-如果連你都笑了 (by aagoodday)

Gonna interrupt the heavier music briefly, to let you know that A Good Day Records just uploaded all of the new Huang Jie aka Dadado (黃玠) album, Raining Night (下雨的晚上) to YouTube. =D
He has a 2-night stand coming up at Legacy Taipei on August 10th/11th.
Raining Night is his third album.
————————-
UPDATE: aagoodday took down the Huang Jie clips, but then immediately re-uploaded them, so I had to update this post with the new link. (In case you were wondering why the clip had stopped working)

Listen/purchase: Rainbow Mountain by Sparrow

Here is another band from the 1724 Records Bandcamp: the Beijing quartet Sparrow (文雀). This is instrumental rock, with some songs on the album going definitely into post-rock territory, e.g., the title track, Rainbow Mountain, that closes the 2012 release.
It really is a beautiful guitar rock album, nothing overly flashy, partnering with a super-solid rhythm section. A powerful live act, I imagine. (I’ll look around for some live video)
They’ve played shows as recently as June, but are planning to devote some down time the rest of the year to recording the next album.
By the way, the official website they list is just an error link, but they are updating their weibo microblogging site. (And the douban page above works, of course)

Following on from the previous post, here is a studio photo of guitarist Xiao Zhong (Pairs) and singer Cee Q (Marquee VII), aka the brand new duo Tom Cruise And Katie Homes (汤姆克鲁斯和凯蒂赫尔姆斯).
The English name they chose will lead to endless wayward Google searches, and the Chinese name, 汤姆克鲁斯和凯蒂赫尔姆斯…? More confusion! LOL, I guess they must have expected that to happen. =D
If you search on the phrase: “tomlovedkatie”, their douban page is the first link, but you have to insist on that exactly for Google. (Too late to reprint the new cd booklets, I guess, but might something to consider. It wouldn’t be the first time a new band immediately changed their name. *cough* Tiger Chocolate…Chocolate Tiger *cough*)
