Chang Shilei – Niu China

Just as its name in English states, Niu China is the album to showcase what’s new in the Chinese music world. From traditional sounding Chinese ballads to chanson francophone fused with electronic, R&B, Bossa Nova, to a Tango-ish sounding track, all the way to a mind-blowing fusion of Beijing opera with strong rock/electronic sounds.

Chris Lee – Old If Not Wild

You can call it anyway you want, the truth seems to be that Chris Lee sings like only Chris Lee can. Her latest album Old If Not Wild (再不瘋狂我們就老了) is a testament to that, even more so than The Dancing Artist was.

The instrument self-playing quartet CN BLUE are back with a mini-album that is a bit more rock, a bit more swing and a bit more sunshine.

Coexistence – Flow

The newly released album Flow by the French/Swedish heavy metal band Coexistence is in all a good rock album. In their songs they mix Metallica-style guitar riffs that are successfully fused with melodious parts.
