This is proof that Cfensi is increasingly not the best place to keep up with alternatives to Cpop. I came to this sad sad realization when I discovered that these guys had released new albums, and I didn’t know about it even though they’re all mainstream. Instead I entreat you to join More CMusic at livejournal to keep more up-to-date.
Yang Kun -Kong Cheng
First up are the guys under Hua Yi entertainment. The duo Yuan Quan is going strong still after 10 years, releasing a new album, their first in three years. Hua Yi’s new singer-songwriter Yang Kun‘s album was released a month ago, and I kept seeing all these news articles about him promoting it, and still didn’t realize that it had been released. Hua Yi seems to be pumping out the albums one per month. I wonder who’s next. *coughs*
Wang Xiaokun‘s album also came out a short while ago. He’s used to be more mainstream and now I think he’s turned indie. Listen to his album, Those girls you like or don’t like, I like them all.
Wang Feng who used to be under Warner Music, and has a discography bigger than as Yuan Quan, released his new album on the 25th. It’s called Belief flies in the Wind. He is supposedly dubbed, “godfather of the new generation of Chinese rock music” (I guess Cui Jian’s been replaced), a tidbit also from More Chinese Music, which you really should join.
List to it here.
Oh, and because I think they’re cool:
Thirteen Month Record’s Folk Group Shan Ren Yue Dui is joining Jie Jie Gao Sheng, the show that gives a platform to new artists! I think Thirteen Month Record has some sort of hook-up with that show.
