OH, man~ the things one has to do to get Marit Larsen albums. Spark wasn’t that hard, since it somehow made its way to Amazon, but it seemed so unlikely that When the Morning Comes would show up there again, so I went hunting. It was not a fruitful web-hunt with everyone telling me they did not do international shipping.

More power to friends! Way to go, Julz~

Marit’s 4th album has finally joined its siblings. It also means Marit’s the only 2014 album I had actively physically purchased so far, beating my 2013 record when I only got BiBi’s Unlock as a present (more yay friends!). However, I did just recently physically purchased Calle 13’s Multiviral considering it was my album of 2014. I’m surprised myself.

I’m a little sad that most (if not all) my purchases are digital.

Chris Li Yuchun, Amber, Jing Chang and BiBi together one one stage for once in my life. Not even performing together, just standing one next to the other.

So apparently BiBi held a concert in Chengdu recently, and I went on a spazzy search because- Dude, BiBi in dreadlocks. Apparently, some of the wardrobe worn (at least the two more androgynous ones) were Yohji Yamamoto designs, including the one she’s wearing while in dreadlocks. It’s like- too many things are perfect in that combination.

There are loads of other photos and snapshots of the concert in this Weibo hashtag: #周笔畅unlock成都演唱会#

All photo credits too all the people with their watermarks. All you lucky sons of guns.

BiBi’s got a brand new song titled Hello World, the theme for the new Mainland Chinese movie The Breakup Guru (分手大师), which opens…  on June 27th. The vibe of the song is very Train’s Hey Soul Sister-y and Jason Mraz-y chill whimsical folksy.

Fun fact: Jason Mraz’s Wordplay [MV] was my jam back in my Vancouverite days. Never liked him as much since then.

Well, this is a completely unexpected collaboration. I’m not completely feeling the English lyrics added to the EPIK HIGH cover, I think it would’ve made more sense if they had added Mandarin instead. However, I bet I would be complaining about how pedestrian the lyrics in Chinese are. LOL So I’ll settle.

Instead~ look at how awkward the vibe of the Making Of is at the beginning, and how they all sort of become dorks by the end of it. xD It’s even more funny if you’ve EVER been the only person in a room that doesn’t speak a language –in this case Korean– and then sort of blurt out a nodding affirmation in said language.

Here’s the official Audio track/Lyric video.
