In the recently unveiled Chinese Music List 2008 Beijing Pop Music ceremony nomination list, new popular group Milk@Coffee, got seven nominations with their album “The Older the Lonelier”. They were not the only ones to get seven nominations, but they’re a bit more indie than the rest who did, so it’s fairly impressive. I feel like Chinese indie is becoming mainstream, which simply means it’s getting more noticed and more money, which is great. It was nominated for best album, best composition, best lyrics, best music editing, best producer, best original composing artist and most popular group. With their first album, “Burn! Little Universe,” Milk@Coffee won “best new composing artist and “best new song” for their song “Lasia.” In their new album, the song of the same name, “the Older, the Lonelier,” was on the Chinese music list for 12 weeks.

They also did a collab with Kungfoo Rap Group, under the Modern Sky Label, but I’m not sure what album this is on.
Anyone? Listen to Me (Rap)
Oh…and one of my favs from this album that was nominated: Through the Coral Sea
