wow…

Pochang Wu (吳柏蒼)   [主唱 at 回聲樂團 (Echo)Works at StreetVoice 街聲CEO & Founder at iNDIEVOX] announced last night that he resigned from iNDIEVOX/StreetVoice.

There’s a very long post at fb detailing the history of the organizations and his role.  iNDIEVOX is so important to the TW indie scene!!  (Can’t overstate that!)

This is kind of a shock; especially after Echo band went on hiatus, I figured he would expand his involvement.    

If the Taipei Times still ran music features, we might get some background on this. (in English)

徵才快訊:Blow 吹音樂需要你!(徵文字編輯) – Blow 吹音樂

StreetVoice is recruiting writers again, and I happened to notice the email address you are supposed to send your resumé to is omoi@streetvoice.com.

So *OmOi from P!SCO works for StreetVoice. (and she also recently started at One PeeR Studio 頑皮音樂影像工作)  Carla Chung 卡菈 from Queen Suitcase also works at StreetVoice. 

(actually, I imagine that a lot of TW musicians have worked for SV. Walking in the StreetVoice offices must be like walking into a big city music store, you’re bound to see a lot of musicians at their ‘day jobs’)

—————————–

I just noticed that all of the StreetVoice/Blow features credited to ‘JohnnyWen’ going back to March of 2015 are listed here: https://blow.streetvoice.com/author/omoi/.  So maybe ‘JohnnyWen’ is OmOi’s pen name. I wonder why she would use a pseudonym?  Although when I think about it, I’m pretty sure ‘OmOi’ is also a nickname. =D

01 Contently feat. thruoutin – Achun

thruoutin:

song of the day: Achun〈Constently feat. thruoutin〉
https://hk.streetvoice.com/ninjachun/songs/363846/

每日點首歌俾你聽
https://hk.streetvoice.com/music/songoftheday/

If you go to the HK version of StreetVoice, you’ll see most of the same elements as the TW StreetVoice, but the news and events (and song of the day) has Hong Kong content that the TW page doesn’t.   (I’m basing this on looking at the 2 sites’ main pages side by side atm)

椰子!! Coconuts with 4 versions in 1 MV of their song, 瘋狂的醫院 Crazy Hospital.  =D

The plot of the MV changes in every version, especially in the last ver.

1st version: full song. 2nd: no vocal version, with different camera angles. Apay plays the nurse.

3rd: no vocal / no guitar version, more focus on bass player (Chouc Lin 子喬 (林子喬) from 1976樂團)  4th: drums / remix version

p.s. you’ll probably recognize guitarist Han Likang and drummer Peter Lai, both also play in Waa Wei and Lovely Baby.  And that’s 林宥嘉 Yoga Lin playing the mad scientist.  =D

Full credits back at YT.

聲體(練團室demo) – 輕晨電

輕晨電 Morning call posted a demo of the song 聲體 to StreetVoice on Christmas, and then played it on New Year’s Eve in Taichung (2016台中好跨年):

Bit of talking, then the song starts around 1 minute in. Love that chorus!! =D

玲白 has 3 more clips from this event, all pro shot from the broadcast. One clip is just emcee stuff, not a song.
