(Linying)

Just read that Linying is going to be at Summer Sonic in Tokyo next month, you can read a short interview with her over at BandwagonSG.

Her ep (Paris 12) is coming out in September.  The song Alpine may be one we have posted before, but I think it was taken down at some point.  – Anyway, it’s back up today, so take advantage and hear this glorious ethereal music while you can!   =D

p.s. Linying has a few things on her tumblr, including lyrics for Alpine and a couple of other songs.

(M A N D A R K)

Ambient track from Mandark Ravel.  I stumbled upon her earlier this year through some connections to other TW musicians. She’s composed some jazz tunes as well, played by 顧上揚 Shang-Yang Gu-piano, 劉育嘉 Jack Liu-bass, 陳信介 Jimmy Chen-drums:

She’s also a member of I Mean Us, a quintet that formed at the end of 2015.  They do shoegaze-noisy dreampop style, with male & female vocals. Check out one of their demos:

(Four Pens)

Four Pens 四枝筆樂團 posted a bunch of songs to their SoundCloud recently, there are full releases there now (or close to it).  Anyway, sweet folk music for your stress-free enjoyment!   =D

Bibo Kang 康秉豐 is busy with Door Cat Records, Candace Hsu is with The Tic Tac, and 吳映咨 咨咨 Sunny is still in Japan, as far as I know.

They have a new single coming sometime this summer, and the EPs are available at iNDIEVOX for HD digital purchase.   (it is possible the SoundCloud tracks might be only there for a short time, just so you know)

(Kiri)

Kiri Tse from Hong Kong. She is the singer that sang the Bob Dylan song at HOCC’s free concert we posted about earlier today.

Thank you to blueyedninja for identifying her!   According to mojim.com, she’s written or co-written at least 3 songs for HOCC. (they list more, but I think some are duplicate listings)

Let’s hear more, this is a live/studio session on Berklee Internet Radio Network with the Kiri Tse Quartet, from her time at Berklee College of Music in Boston:

She lists her current location as NYC, HK, Boston. But she was in Hong Kong yesterday, lol.

(13月終了 the Undecimber)

13月終了 Undecimber Fin.  No earthly idea what their band name means, but I’m so impressed with them, all 5 songs on their SoundCloud are really good! Interesting parts from the dual guitars, lovely lead vocal, and skilled playing throughout.  =D

Adlian Chou-keys/composer, Haiting Liao 海廷-drums, *范峻瑞-gtr, *藥仙-gtr, *Ray-gtr, Lars Lin (林彥辰)-bass, Hyman Kang (康雅婷)-voc.  *Not sure which nickname belongs to which guitarist – 2 guitarists, tho.  =)

I don’t wanna get my hopes up that this is the progressive rock/folk band I’ve been searching for from TW, but… I’m quite hopeful, LOL
