dude i was listening to your playlist and love the songs so much *-* most of them i can’t find on google tho. Is there anywhere i can go to find them? I need Papaver’s Around in my life like right nao

Hi there, thanks for checking out the playlist! (For everyone’s benefit, there is a music player on the main page, 24 songs). And I agree, Around is a awesome song!  =D

I would suggest 4 things:

1. Search for the band on the main page (http://fyeahcindie.tumblr.com/), and scroll thru looking for a post(s) with a link to their SoundCloud, iNDIEVOX, StreetVoice, bandcamp, douban, or YouTube page. There are very few bands that don’t make their music available for web listening.

For example, Papaver has most of their songs – including Around – at SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/papaverbandtw). 

2. If you are Google searching, add one of those sites I mentioned to the band name in your search. For example, I just tried [Palapelit streetvoice] in a google search, and not only did the StreetVoice link come up, but also their official YT, their SoundCloud, and facebook page. 

3. Some bands (e.g. Papaver, Palapelit, Manic Sheep) only have non-Chinese words for their names, but a lot of bands will have a Chinese name also. In come cases, they seem to use an English name for their logo, but if you ever hear them introduce themselves in a video, they might use the Chinese name, or both names. It depends on the band.

So for certain bands, you will have better search results if you search with the Chinese characters. 

4. If you know the band is from mainland China, (where some western sites like facebook are off-limits) you might have better search results if you add a China-based site like douban, or one of the China video sites like youku (http://www.youku.com/) or tudou (http://www.tudou.com/).

douban is a good place to start for mainland bands, because there is almost always music to hear on the douban player, but you can also find links to bands’ blogging/twitter type pages.

I hope you found that helpful!   I would start with the first suggestion, because that might save you some time, plus give you some performances that may not show up on a Google search.

More adorable music, this time from Hong Kong: Arumimi Hifumi (Feifei) (有耳非文).
As far as I know, she is doing just theatre work these days, but if you want to hear fun, inventive music, she has a few albums from between 1999 – 2003 (with a 23 song compilation/movie soundtrack called 東京鐵塔下 Under The Tokyo Tower released in 2007). I love her! =D

Some of that happy rock I was talking about in the Twee roundup: here are PepperCats (胡椒貓).
This is the band that solo Ukulele singer 麗麗 / LELE (王紫蓓) is in. And this video comes from her YT channel. That channel has all of her uke song lesson clips, but also a lot of Peppercats uploads. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face. =D
