This was sent to us early this morning but doesn’t really include much information about what Frequency Asia is. I think it has something to do with a podcast or some entity that looks for Asian bands/music to promote via this podcast? No idea.
Anyway…they’ve prepared a compilation record that you can check out below with a great list of bands from all over Asia:
“Frequency Asia has been going on for over a year now, and to celebrate and continue striving towards our goal of connecting the diverse music scenes of Asia we’re releasing “Frequency Asia Vol. 1”, a collection of some our favourite tracks played on the podcast over the first 30 episodes.
“Frequency Asia Vol. 1” features 22 tracks covering a range of genres and countries. Malaysian psych-pop (Orang), Russian instrumental hip-hop (Filatique), Pakistani electronica (Slowspin), Indian sludge (Shepherd), Vietnamese dub techno (Dee F.), Indonesian indie pop (Brightfull + Corolla), Chinese drone metal (Nahash), and a whole lot more. Listen to “Frequency Asia Vol. 1″ on Bandcamp for free or buy a copy of the cassette tape.”
