Like many others who wanted to be astronatus when they grew up, I stayed up late last night to watch NASA's livestream of the Mars landing. As a former Space Camp cadet, I wanted to make today's MP3 topical, so I searched the FMA for "mars" and found a lot of interesting stuff, including this track off a sampler from Chinese label Maybe Mars.
According to the label, Ourself Beside Me is "one of the most exciting and innovative bands to emerge from the Beijing scene[...] these three hard-charging ladies have swept everything before to become among the most admired and inspiring bands in China." Dig these pop sounds and check out the rest of the sampler, with bits of experimental, pop, hardcore, and more.

Chan Wai Fat composed this original soundtrack for the play CHILDREN OF THE SOUL MOUNTAIN (LING SHAN) inspired by the daoist pilgrimage in Gao Xingjian's Nobel winning novel SOUL MOUNTAIN (LING SHAN).
Composer Chan Wai Fat visited the minority tribes along part of the Ling Shan path, resulting a re-interpretation of two traditional folk songs and seven new compositions with a mix of native recordings. This album is a selection of songs from the play, sung by elderly blind folk singer Po Sun-yi. Sun-yi was born and raised in Guizhou. This is the same region of southwestern China where composer Fat visited the Ling Shan Path and where Shamanistic customs and traditions still flourish.
