  • INNER VOICE (EP)
    Heart-to-hearts
    February 23, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    What comes to your mind when you think of Tang Siu Hau? The singing competition The Voice or the theme song "Half a Cup of Water" from the 2010 TVB sitcom Some Day? It's hard to think of a third thing to represent Siu Hau because she was always underrated during her five years under TVB. After joining Vicky Fung and Victor Tse's Frenzi Music in 2015, her talents were discovered through various surprising singles including "Elegance and Vulgarity" and "Strength and Weakness." Taking audiences away from the depressive world of her debut EP, the mini-album Inner Voice explores the power of communication in mutual understanding and self-discovery. The first plug "Mixed" (Track 1) continues her... [read more]
  • Doushite Koishite Konna (SINGLE+DVD) (Japan Version)
    Uno Misako's refreshing solo debut
    February 20, 2018 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    In the past several years, quite a few of the AAA members have branched out to solo music careers, with Nishijima Takahiro (Nissy) and Hidaka Mitsuhiro (Sky-Hi) being especially active as solo artists. Uno Misako now joins the solo ranks with her first official single Doushite Koishite Konna ("Why is Love Like This?"). Doushite Koishite Konna contrasts sweet melody and singing with Uno's self-penned melancholic lyrics about love and separation. The medium-tempo song is co-composed by Koudai Iwatsubo and Jazzin'park's Kubota Shingo, who also participated on Nissy's recent solo album Hocus Pocus2. The song's mellow arrangement brings a soul-freeing atmosphere to the song, particularly in the... [read more]

    Luna (2CD)

    AGA (Singer)
    Songs for nighttime loners
    January 31, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Sleepless nights may feel lonely, but they're the perfect time for introspection for people like AGA. Drawing from various genres like jazz, rock and hip-hop, the groovy musician's album Luna eloquently expresses the feeling of loneliness through stories of different lonely people and guides listeners to reconnect with their inner souls. The lead track 3AM (Track 1) creates a tranquil midnight with a very rich 90s R&B flavor. On top of a quiet piano melody fused with catchy drumbeats, the singer-songwriter sings about the internal conflict of a girl who struggles to break up with her lover. Rapper Ghost Style comforts the girl with his deep and gentle voice, which perfectly suits the smooth... [read more]
  • Kassy Mini Album Vol. 1
    Kassy's sonic journey to healing
    January 29, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Kassy made herself known as a rapper through the reality show Unpretty Rapstar 3 in 2016. However, I would rather call her a "rapping vocalist" because singing is her primary focus. In her first mini-album I Want Love, the R&B singer retains her groovy style while introducing new genres to depict a healing journey after breaking up with a loved one. The main plug "I Want Love" (Track 1) starts the album with a dramatic string melody that expresses the intense heat of love. The ardent mood simmers down when cool synth beats join the song. Kassy's confident and frank rap about the yearning for a past love enriches the appealing blend of electronica and classical music with a bold hip-hop... [read more]
  • The Posterist: The Art Of Yuen Tai-Yung (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
    He who drew the stars
    January 24, 2018 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The name Yuen Tai Yung won't ring a bell for most people, but if you're a fan of 70s and 80s Hong Kong films, you'll recognize Yuen's artwork immediately. Yuen's distinctive and eye-catching illustrations graced the movie posters (and VCD/DVD covers) of hundreds of films from Hong Kong cinema's golden age. The self-taught artist was uncannily good at capturing the biggest stars of the day and the tone of action and comedy films. His poster artwork for Bruce Lee films emblazoned the martial arts superstar's name in bold block letters across the top and animated his stunning aura with muscles rippling and limbs flying. Meanwhile, his funny caricature-like drawings for Hui Brothers classics... [read more]
  • C AllStar 2017 Live (2DVD + 2CD)
    Music and society
    January 22, 2018 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    While new groups keep popping up in Hong Kong, few of them can stand firm in the mainstream music world like C AllStar. Thanks to their compelling a cappella skills and realistic yet experimental music style, the vocal quartet quickly found a seat among numerous pop groups and rock bands in the Cantopop scene. However, the habitual collaboration between the four members has gradually become a comfort zone that stifles their creativity. Before going solo to find breakthroughs in their music careers, the C AllStar members inspire thinking about the future of Hong Kong and Cantopop in their farewell concert. Starting from the bossa nova debut song iSing to the EDM-style "Music Colony," C... [read more]
