Nein or Gas Mus 無高潮 – 1st
Guangzhou emo math rock kids Nein or Gas Mus, a band I’ve been dying to catch in the flesh, just released their adorably kinetic and infectiously debut releases on Qiii Snacks Records (also based out of Guangzhou and super cute mind) and they’ve got an MV to go with their first single 1st (which surfaced first on the kickass indie rock compilation Nerd Noise II earlier this year) – which follow our protagonist getting sucked into the void that is her Apple laptop. We’ve all been there.

Foster Parents – Minor Species
Foster Parents – the instrumental math rock duo from Shanghai – recently released their latest song ‘Minor Species’ as apart of Hong Kong label Sweaty & Cramped’s latest compilation Emotional, Too: An Asian Emo Compilation. And there’s a music video of sorts floating around and it’s my kind of bonkers – a twisted reimagining of everyone’s second favorite Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan rom-com – You’ve Got Mail. As the band states: “We don’t own any of the footage throughout – just shuffled everything around a little to finally out Mr. Hanks as the pervert we all know he is.” Indeed.
