Just saw these photos posted by Schrödinger’s Cat 薛丁格的貓.  They have a new ep coming and they play at Riverside Music Cafe tomorrow night with 徐行 Cruising. If you’ll recall, they were a 6-piece band with female vocals (張郁平 Yu Ping Chang) and 愛莉鵝 Ariel Lee on keys/violin. Now the girls are literally out of the picture, and the band […]

怕胖團 Pa Pun played a semi-unplugged set at Moon Romantic, part of a second-hand market + music show.  It was a 2-day event called Freak’s Market, put on by Door Cat Records.  (a few bands played each day)

I think this song is gonna be on the new Pa Pun album.  There are clips of them trying to record the vocals for this at fb. (Punk rock looks so easy on stage, LOL)

江婕羽 YT channel has the full set, plus clips from some of the other bands. Here’s a cute song from 小捲+泰泰 of Tomodachi 偷摸大雞 樂團:

Tomodachi have not been very active lately, I’m not seeing any full band gigs from them since December.

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)

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.

They look about ready to keel over from the heat, but they sound great!   不是桃樂絲 I’m Not Dorothy at Wake Up Festival.  =D

The uploader also had a few clips from 廖文強 Wen Chiang Liao and Bad Nerves Band, I had no idea OmOi (P!SCO) was playing bass with these guys:

Reading on fb that OmOi was special guest for that gig.  She also played with The eXtensions and P!SCO that weekend.  busybusybusy!

百合花  have been regularly re-posting their old songs to fb recently. If you’re like me and just became aware of them this year, this is a great chance to get to know them in depth.   =D

And Shortwave (formerly known as Little Forktail 小剪尾樂團) just posted a new demo today, check it out!

Not sure why they had stopped posting, but Rooftop Audio/Yuchain Wang are very busy lately!  We told you about the DeerMx recording sessions, but other projects are in progress from 記號士 The Sign Of Human南瓜妮歌迷俱樂部 PUMPKINney Fan Club老貓偵探社Cat Detective Agency, and Pilots In The Sky And On The Sea 旅人.  

Pilots went dark for quite awhile, but they poked their heads up to say they were still alive in May, and then they posted “新的我們,six legged wolf” in June.  So I guess that’s their new logo?  Anyway, let’s recall their epic sound from the 2014 ep, Half-naked journey

Pry open your wallet and go buy that 3 song release for $3. at bandcamp! =D

Check out 甜約翰 Sweet John.  I think they just formed this year, with 浚瑋 Genie Wu-voc, *Mandark Ravel 梁丹郡 (fr. I Mean Us)-keys/voc, 罐頭-gtr, 阿獎-bass, 小J-drums.    According to Blow-StreetVoice, they used to be called 前身為 Natural Outcome 樂團

Love the m/f vocal mix on this, and the song rocks in an understated way, with power from the rhythm section and finesse in the chords & melodies.  =D

*If you have been paying attention, you’ve noticed that this is another project involving Mandark.    See our recent features HERE and HERE.
