Carsick Cars are probably the most talked-about band in Beijing's burgeoning music scene, both in China and abroad. They create immediately accessible Sonic Youth-esque anthems that have proven palatable to American and Chinese tastes alike. Michael Pettis, founder of Beijing's top indie club (d-22) and indie label (Maybe Mars), recently stated in a CNN feature that he believes Carsick Cars' singer Shou Wang is a musical genius. I'm not sure if this album will scream "genius" to you, but it will probably at the very least have you believing that the dude is capable of writing some great tunes.
