Neo-psychedelia, Indie rock


Recommended Posts

I don't know about neo-psychodelia, but there are plenty of indie-rock bands in China nowadays (though the scene is still very much underground).

Check out these threads for a bit of more info:




Your best starting point for finding out more is www.rockinchina.com

Thanks for the links. Here are some of the bands I've found so far that I like:

Lonely China Day

Xu Wei

Carsick Cars - http://www.myspace.com/carsickcars

Ashes on Wednesday - http://www.myspace.com/ashesonwednesday

Shou Wang - http://www.myspace.com/shouwang

I noticed that some of these guys are part of another genre I really like: shoegazing.

I also came across a music recommendation site: http://www.douban.com/music/.

Hey you,

Recently I was also searching for some indie bands. I really cannot any longer stand this shallow cpop, even just for practising Chinese... .

However, what I like to recommand is MY LITTLE AIRPORT (downloadlink at http://theeta-backtoschool.blogspot.com/2007/07/my-little-airport-zoo-is-sad-people-are.html).

Another one, which can compete with western ones in my point of view is TIZZY BAC (u might like to look here to get it: http://community.livejournal.com/music_envy/161667.html).

Furthermore, the above mentioned link provides a good overview about some indie bands.
