I first heard about the Taiwan indie singer Zhang Xuan while reading conjee's blog. And that's when I heard & fell in love with the song "Baobei." (it seems like conjee got the song from Mr. makzhou ^_^) Two days ago, when I was checking out Mr. makzhou's last.fm list, in which Zhang Xuan was one of the top artists, I was reminded again of Zhang Xuan & searched for her on google again... Finally, finally I found her debut album "Maybe I don't care" at angeltalent's blog!
As angeltalent says, "Maybe I don't care" is not an official album. It is handmade by Zhang Xuan (she copied the lyrics one by one) & Sodagreen's lead vocal Qing Feng (he drew the background art) given as gifts to fans. Holy cow. How awesome is that (minus the fact that I will never be able to get it *_^).
Of course, when I listened to her album, it was instant love. I love her voice. I love her mellow, acoustic melodies. I love the lyrics. I love how refreshingly different she is from others that I'm listening to, I love how flawless the whole album is...
Definitely grab the album from angeltalent's blog guys/girls - Zhang Xuan's up there with Cheer & Cao Fang! ^_^
