On the suggestion of a friend I looked up this incredible label called Sublime Frequencies and about all I can say is 'holy shit'. These look like some amazing collections of music, most of it from the outer limits of Asia. This isn't traditional stuff for ethnomusicologists, but instead a bunch of insane pop relics fractured through Asian sensibilities.
I have one LP of Tawainese surf rock my parents once brought back from Asia for some reason I never quite understood. I knew there had to be a lot more out there.
Too bad I am so woefully underpaid. But I do have two kidneys.
