Chen Li (陈粒 陳粒) at 红糖罐 (Brown Sugar Jar Music Space (Hong Tang Guan)) in Shenzhen.

There’s a bit of chitchat in the beginning, but then there are 2 songs at 1:25. Lyrics shown on the screen behind her. The uploader was peeking between two other patrons, but the picture and audio are both good!  There is one more beautiful song uploaded HERE. =D

p.s. Chen Li is also the singer for the band Daydreamer (空想家) You should really go over to their douban and hear a few songs, especially “念流勿驻” and “走在通往明天的路上”, to appreciate Chen Li at full rock power!

Following on from the last post, here is one of the songs included on the new Chen Li aka Lily (陈粒) debut solo album. This happens to be the song most played on her douban. 

I’m not sure if the audio is a demo or early release single.  She does some things that are much more folky than this; overall, I can’t really pin her down to a certain style. I’m enjoying all of it!  =D

There are so few Chen Li clips on YouTube, but I did find this channel: 非主流抒情音樂第二區, which specializes in making indie lyric videos, so check that out for some new things to try. The channel has posted 23 videos over 5 months. It looks like mostly mainland artists, but I don’t know all the bands.

The debut solo album from Shanghai singer/songwriter Chen Li (陈粒) comes out February 1st. You can see the track list, all the cover art, and purchase at taobao

You can hear most/all of the songs at douban, and I’ll post a video next.

By the way, she is also a member of the band Daydreamer (空想家); you can hear one of their songs we posted HERE. (Recommended!)

Daydreamer (空想家) from Shanghai, with a song from their 万象 ep. You can hear all of this ep at their site, and all 5 songs are enjoyable. =D
If you do a video search for “空想家乐队” (Daydreamer band), you get a bunch of results from the last couple of years. Videos are loading really quickly atm. (3 pm central time USA)
These songs have been around for a while, and I’m sure the band must be psyched to have them released. They had a crowdfunding project going this spring on Musikid.com that raised 2/3 of their goal.
By the way the singer Chen Li aka Lily (陈粒) has 2 collections of her solo music on her page, also highly recommended! (More acoustic folk than Daydreamer)

Daydreamer (空想家 -Kongxiangjia) talk to me about a bit of this and that

Daydreamer (or for most people, 空想家) have been going since mid 2011. They are one of the very first Chinese bands I ever encountered when I became active in booking shows, at that time for GLM. I tipped great things for them back in the day – they always, and still do, give consistently…

—————-

Nice!

I Enjoyed both the Daydreamer (空想家 Kōngxiǎng jiā) tunes and their singer Chen Li aka Lily (陈粒)’s solo songs. The solo Lily songs are gentle acoustic folk, and the band rocks out a bit more. I love her voice. =D (By the way, I just noticed that there is a second page of Lily’s songs on douban, click the second tab.

I’ll try to find some YT video…
