Amy’s 2012-2013 Music Highlights
20. Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan
19. Amanda Palmer – Theater is Evil
I’m still not sure whether a Kickstarter album is worth it, but… you can still get the album in iTunes, right?
18. Shan Ren Band (山人乐队) – Listen to the Mountain (听山)
I haven’t heard much from Shan Ren Band, but they released an album titled Listen to the Mountain last year… and they have more videos on YouTube than Escape Plan… so they must be more popular than them, even if their Xiami numbers aren’t quite the same; mainly because they’re more folksy.
You can get their album (or stream the whole thing) on Xiami. It’s official, though I’ve heard Xiami has restricted use in the US. You can try going around that with *cough*Hola*cough* if you use Chrome and let me know if that works.
