Music news! This week we’ve got surprise releases, strange collaborations, and returning big names. Here are some exciting new releases from familiar old bands to dig into:
首先必须得说说另类摇滚大腕儿Wilco给我们带来得惊喜了：限时免费试听下载得 Star Wars. 这到底是从哪来得啊？！虽然还是不能相信这是真的，不过链接在这里，想要拿得得抓紧了！http://wilcoworld.net
First things first: alternative rock giants Wilco dropped a surprise, free album called Star Wars on Friday the 17th of July. Out of nowhere! It’s weird to say that a whole new album from one of the biggest indie bands in the world is now available to stream/download for free, at Wilco’s official website: http://wilcoworld.net . Available for a limited time only, so hurry and grab that .zip file now!
再来说说另一个重量级的独立乐队Owl City. 他们在上个星期7月10号发行了第五张录音专辑, Mobile Orchestra。2009年，咱们开功还举办了他们在武汉，上海，北京和香港得演出呢。（得瑟一下）
Moving on to other indie heavyweights: Sugary synth crooner Owl City’s fifth studio album, Mobile Orchestra, came out last week on July 10th. We brought Owl City to China back in 2009, at a time when he was known for being a “Myspace phenomenon”, playing shows in Wuhan, Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong.
今年5月，Owl City又回来了中国，分别在广州，上海和北京举办了演出。戳链接或者去虾米来听听专辑首单“Verge”（这是一首与Aloe Blacc合作得歌曲）。
He was back earlier this year in May, playing shows in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. You can listen to the lead single “Verge” (a collaboration with singer Aloe Blacc) over on Youku, or stream the whole album on Xiami.
World’s End Girlfriend 是一支日本的电音／后摇／实验乐队。他们曾经在中国参加过2011年得觉音乐艺术节和2013年得Wood+Wires 音乐节。上个月，他们发行了一张与多位音乐家共同合作得专辑Voices of Days Past。其中有同样来自日本得实验音乐组合Vampillia。也有一些意想不到得合作，比如一直活跃在地下音乐得BOOL 和Smamy。整张专辑起承转合，相当流畅，并且充满了有意思得点子。再次良心推荐！ 虾米有完整得试听喔！
The wonderfully eclectic Japanese electronica / post-rock / J-pop experimenters World’s End Girlfriend (WEG, who were here for Jue | Music + Art in 2011 and Shanghai’s Wood+Wires Festival 2013), released their new album, Voices of Days Past¸ last month. It’s a collaborative album, featuring fellow Japanese experimenters Vampillia. Evenly split between WEG’s instrumentals and Vampillia’s more cinematic compositions, the album is bursting with clever ideas and turns of phrase. It also features some surprising and unusual vocal collaborations from underground musicians BOOL and Smamy. Highly recommended, and the whole thing is on Xiami already.
最后，就是大家最爱得车库迷幻Thee Oh Sees了！（上一次来中国还是两年前的事儿。）新专辑Mutilator Defeated At Last 相当犀利。被各大杂志纷纷点赞。Pitchfork评论到这是一张动中带静，静中带动得专辑。动得是那疯狂得吉他，静的是那优美得节奏。适合极了这个夏天！
And finally, everyone’s favourite garage-psych warriors Thee Oh Sees (who we saw last on our shores in 2013) have a raucous new album out, titled Mutilator Defeated At Last. This one has been out long enough for reviews to start pouring in, and the consensus seems to be very positive. Pitchfork called it a “perfect balance of druggy alienation and soothing forward motion, of sublime rhythmic focus and freaked-out guitar violence.” Sounds like the perfect summer jam.
