CHUNGKING! CHUNGKING is a Brighton born trip-hop band consisting of Sean Hennesey, Jessie Banks and James Stephenson. “Retro-synth-soul trio.” There’s influences here; or more accurately, a blending of era. There’s soul and psychedelic pop redolent at Goldfrapp’s recent work. Sometimes, vocalist Jessie Banks can remind us of the flighty Springfield (‘Please Don’t Talk’) then the sultry Martina Topley-Bird (‘World of a Thousand Suns’). There’s a blend of modern synths in ‘Voodoo’ amongst others, as well as the sweeping strings expected in soul.  SUM UP: They are basically amazing.

JOLIN TSAI. 蔡依林.

(Simplified: 蔡依林 Pinyin: Cài Yī Lín English: Jolin Tsai) She’s the  best selling female artist in Taiwan to date. She’s fabulously and surprisingly catchy and sometimes that’s all you really need. I don’t understand a word of Mandarin but sometimes you don’t need to. All you really need is a good beat. For those that were with me, you listened to this on my mp3 player in Cancun. And yes, you liked it. ;D chinese, c-pop, pop, taiwan, cpop

    Last.fm recommends Chungking as similar to Natalie Walker, Daughter Darling & Hooverphonic.

    Do they sound at all like the above? (esp. Nat)
