台灣 香港 歐美樂團名稱猜猜樂!看你得幾分? – Blow 吹音樂

Guess the band name represented by emojis   0_0

The 1st game at the link is for TW bands, the 2nd is for HK bands. (they are reversed above)  And there is a 3rd panel with international acts.   They give the answers at the bottom!!    The game was designed by HK artist 歪畸

(As if the mysterious language wasn’t confusing enough, now they’re making me decipher emojis!!)

p.s. I think the game may be easier if you know the bands by their Chinese names.  =)

Stream Nova Heart’s self-titled debut album in full

Nova Heart “Only two more days and the baby is out.. Prelisten here at The 405 before we hit the road…”

If you follow them on SoundCloud, you may have heard some of these songs. I think my favorite is Queen Is Dead.  =D

重返歌唱舞台!莊鵑瑛邀樂迷齊聚擁抱! – Blow 吹音樂

Ball, Ball, Ball, where have you been?!  I think the last show she did was the end of her ep tour at ATT Show Box in June of 2014:

I know she was in One-Fang 萬芳’s theatrical production at Christmas time, but I don’t recall any other performance since the ep.  It’s great to have her back singing!  =D

Xiaosong 江小松 getting ready for this Friday at Witch House, repeatedly going over a section of her song – you can hear the metronome in the background. Sounds good!   =D

I don’t recognize the guitarist, but the percussionist is A-fun の木箱鼓打了沒. She teaches Cajon/percussion, and regularly plays with Connie Lu 呂莘. Xiaosong was recently a special guest at a Connie Lu gig.

Here are Connie & A-fun at Witch House from March of this year, a lovely singalong with the crowd:

Woah, so gentle…  Stranded Whale “is a folk-rock band based in Hong Kong. The band consists of Jabin Law (vocal, acoustic guitar), Tomii Chan (backing vocal, electric guitar), Hin Leung (bass), *Yikin Lo (Keyboard) and Dean Li (drums, percussion).”   *Yikin may not be a full-time member, not listed on all of their sites.

The about section of their fb is very informative, and bilingual for the helpful win. The same info is back at YT, just follow the clip.

Love those harmonies & beautiful chords!  =D  Hear more at SoundCloud!

好樂團 GoodBand with rap by PenSoul and remix by Joey Huang 就已, mellow hiphop / sweet pop combination.  =D

I told you before that singer 許瓊文 Cherry Wen Hsu is also in PoPol Band 波波爾樂團. They are very active on YT, posting mostly covers. I think PoPol are a trio, with one member currently doing his military service.  Lots of PoPol & GoodBand videos at her YT channel.

PoPol’s 劉冠琳 Jamie Liu is also a solo performer (she also did the filming of the video above) with an active YT channel; let’s hear her cover of the Corinne Bailey Rae hit:

Xiaosong 江小松 sounding very sweet in this ‘official demo’. I think that must mean it’s polished – closer to a final studio track than a demo recording made in a rehearsal room. Just a guess. =D

By the way, if you’re interested, Xiaosong and Connie Lu 呂莘 did a short livestream to fb on Saturday, you can catch it on both of their fb:
