Rachel and Kendra‘s recent music posts got me to thinking about the music I’ve been listening to these days. I have to admit that my iPod’s playlist looks WAY dated: some Metric, Rufus Wainwright, REM, and the rest is filled with japanesepod lessons (and that’s another story).
So my question to all you other laowai here in China is this:
How are you keeping up to date with good new music that doesn’t quite make into the sound-proof bubble that we refer to as China?
And before anyone chimes in with that “cultural adaptation” mumbo jumbo, let me tell ya that I’m not looking for Chinese tunes. Not in the mood. I want something for now, dammit.
Just like every now and then after becoming sick to death of Chinese food, you just need a piece of fucking cheesecake. Or a plate of nachos. Damn, do I ever miss nachos…
Anyway, I’m open to suggestion. What new and interesting music is out there these days?
Where’s my musical cheesecake?
P.S. Here’s my Last.fm station, and I’m open to listening to yours if ya got one.
