Listen to: and paint our pupils with the ashes by tfvsjs

The new tfvsjs album 在 zoi came out 2 weeks ago, and you can hear 3 of the 10 songs at bandcamp, also available to purchase.  Mighty math rock from Hong Kong!   =D

The band are gonna cover a lot of miles on this tour, beginning with Summer Sonic in Tokyo on August 20th:

They play Taiwan Taipei The Wall 8/27淺堤 shallow levée have been invited to open – drummer Tu Chia-Chin 涂嘉欽 must be busy then with Elephant Gym, as they announce that 黃堂軒 Sam Huang from Gigantic Roar will be filling in.

Emily 卜星慧 selected her little backpacker guitar and took a ride for Yuran TV 樂人 x Volkswagen.  =D

At the end of the clip you can see they also filmed her playing the song up against the car.

(via “Emotion, No” and Asia’s Emo Boom)

We can spend days arguing about whether or not we’re still in an emo revival (did good emo music ever go away?), but I’d rather talk about how emo has influenced bands outside of the United States, especially in the East where a lot of great emo bands are making an impact.

Qiii Snacks Records, one of my favorite Chinese indie labels, has released “Emotion, No,” an Asian emo compilation that features eight bands from eight different Asian cities. The songs are either “punky” or “nerdy” and the lineup features great bands I’ve never heard of before, except Chinese Football, who is already gaining a following in America. If you can’t cough up the $999 to buy this compilation, you can just play it on repeat while you seek out each of these bands individually.

Note: In the info section on the album’s Bandcamp, apparently emo came from Chicago – is that a reference to Cap’n Jazz?

“Thank you for picking this compilation up, may the noise be with you.”

“Emotion, No” tracklist:

Side A – Punky
1. “Who Cares, Really” – Forests [Singapore]
2. “City of Hercules” – falls [Tokyo]
3. “Kitchen Counter” – Offseason [Okinawa]
4. “Waterfall” – MORETHAN [Yokohama]

Side B – Nerdy
5. “Last Emo Boy” – Chinese Football [Wuhan]
6. “Bokchoy” – Sage of Time [Shenzhen]
7. “Wellspring” – Beeswax [Malang]
8. “Catharsis” – Emptybottles. [HongKong]

Only $999!   =D

Promo for the Her music stops in China. This really is a lovely and tasteful group of artists, but if you are interested in making it to a show, keep in mind that not every artist from the compilation is playing every stop on the tour!  See what I mean:
