I like all songs from these artists: Apoptygma Berzerk, David Bowie, Deathklok, Jamiroquai, Paul Van Dyk, Jogn Digweed, Soundgarden, Lifehouse, Foo Fighters, and Madonna :P I rate them all A's.. though some of Madonna's songs FAIL. lol
Various artists ... right now when I was in the kitchen, the computer was playing:
Close to you ... 莫文蔚 version
只因喜欢Faye ... 软硬天师 with Faye Wang
the white stripes
Glad you dig the Reason. One of my favorite new Beijing bands.
Yeah! "Mezzanine" is a classic trip-hop record, probably the crowning work of the genre.
Helen Feng's significant other is German, and organized the tour. They also have a history of colloborating with like-minded German musicians, as well as bringing Berlin-based artists to Beijing via their event promotion agency, FAKE.
Teresa Tang ...
Now listening to 南拳妈妈 《下雨天》
Need some soft and young music sometimes :)
Hess Is More - Yes Boss
Now listening to 梁静茹 无条件为你
A joint, Massive Attack, and a downstairs mixup party. Fuck. Yes.
I divide my musical preferences into two categories: shit I listen to when dudes are around, and songs I listen to when ladies are present. I'm not being insincere. I'm equally embarrassed by all of it. I'm a creature of extremes, I suppose.
The former would include industrial, metal, experimental, and generally angry/angsty shit like KMFDM, PIG, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Mindless Self Indulgence, Foetus, Cop Shoot Cop
The chick friendly stuff tends to be more ambient or androgynous: The Knife, Le Tigre, MGMT, TV on the Radio, A Perfect Circle, Subtle, Massive Attack, Radiohead, Bloc Party
Asher Roth feat. Keri Hilson - She Don't Want A Man
Blood Brothers are great. I caught one of their shows in college (with Cursive) and was blown away by their sheer wackiness. A friend of mine knows one of the singers, and claims that he's a real nutcase.
