Sound Toy

Sound Toy is probably my favorite Chinese indie post-rock band. Whenever I need to relax, I put on their calming, mellow rock music. Heck, I even listen to them while doing homework (which usually doesn't work out with other music since I can't focus). Even though Sound Toy is categorized as indie post rock, many, including me, believe that they're so much more than that. They utilize many instruments & styles into their songs. I sometimes even hear a little jazz.

When I did a search for Sound Toy on google today, guess what I found? An awesome, awesome new site (in English!) dedicated to rock music in China. I read their review on Sound Toy, and it's lovely. (Go read it and check out the Rock in China site!) Wow, Sound Toy not only satisfy my music needs, they also provide me with useful information. Lovely. ^_^

Hi Max!
Thank you for taking the time & energy to create the rockinchina site! It's awesome ^_^

Dragonradio usually loads/downloads pretty slow for me, but I will check the blog out again soon.

You're so lucky to see Sound Toy live! And best wishes to your site :)
