Illusion Division By The Hand - EP

IDH (short for Illusion Division by the Hand), formed in September, 2007, is a distinctive post-punk band in Beijing. The two members, Xiaoyu (vocals, guitar and bass) and Lu Gang (drums), are both from Inner Mongolia. Influenced by Joy Division, Bauhaus, David Bowie and many other bands and musicians, the songs of IDH are intense, incisive and impressive. They have exceeded the traditional post-punk style and developed their own murky mode.

Fujiya & Miyagi- Transparent Things [2006]

Fujiya and Miyagi, a British trio posing as a Japanese duo, dwell in this sort of everlong geekdom, thumbing their nose at Kraftwerk from the corner of the bathroom and giggling mightily at Arthur Russell’s hard-won austerity. Should they exist in some not-so-far-fetched rock ’n’ roll high school, Fujiya and Miyagi would presumably get their asses kicked by the skaters, the Kraut-rockers, the electro-heads, and Disco Stu. LCD Soundsystem might jump in, but only if, you know, no one was looking. F&M deal in melodic, metronomic beats squatting on short drum hits and clubby bass, leaving enough room for the occasional slinging guitar lick. Transparent Things, then, sounds less the work of three programmers and more like a band that plays together and stays together—like Hot Chip holding it a little closer to the vest, maybe. - Andrew Gaerig
