for me the low wormwood and joyside tracks are the standouts. especially the low wormwood one which manages to make you feel like drifting off into a peaceful sleep.......sort of strange considering that it's got such an insistent drumbeat.

xiao he sounds like it could be very interesting or just irritating, possibly a combination of both? hard to get a real feel from just the one track.

the track from dear eloise sounds pretty massive and has a nice thick wall of sound but the vocals don't do it for me - a touch cutesy for my liking. also the my bloody valentine/jamc/ride sound seems to be getting done to death at the present moment.. still a nice tune.

hot and cold sort of reminded me of blonde redhead back when they used to rock, lots of guitar squall and driving bass, pretty good.

guai li sound pretty poppy and upbeat, verging on anthemic. very nicely crafted song. actually listening again this is really good.

the other bands didn't do much for me but're not gunna like 'em all...

of course these are just my initial judgements based on the tracks provided. definitely worth checking out at the very least...

now back to the balloons:

but yeah...definitely have a listen, eh?

interesting comment from my suppliers in China:

''Sometimes it's hard for people in other countries to see why they should care about a Chinese band. We have to find ways to convince them to listen to the music and give the bands a chance, but once they do they are usually blown away by the quality and creativity of the bands coming out of China,'' said Nevin Domer, one of the founders of Maybe Mars and now the company's chief distributor in the US.
