Listen to CHINESE FOOTBALL
Music travels well. And it can move faster and farther than the most avid sightseer. For example, at some point in the last decade the emo of the American Midwest made it to the other side of the world, all the way to Wuhan, China. There, the excellently-named Chinese Football started experimenting with dreamy emo and jazzy licks. And they’ve got so good at it that they’ve been able to send their own sounds travelling back, right back to Ohio and Illinois even. Their excellently-named EP, ‘Here Comes a New Challenger!’, came out last spring and features only sweet jams.
