Today marks a month since I last updated the Listening Journal. The goal was to listen and post about a new album every week. I’ve done the listening part since the beginning of the year but I fell behind with the writing. Today I’m attempting to catch up.

I am not sure how I first came across Carsick Cars, but from the moment I listened to their break out song Zhong Nan Hai this trio of Chinese Rockers have been blasting on my speakers almost every single day. It’s not common for me to overplay singles but I am guilty of that on this case.

So I decided to check the full album and found out they wear the spirit of Rock’n’Roll on their sleeves and even toured with Sonic Youth. I couldn’t praise the simplicity, energy and passion these guys bring to their performances more, but such a limited “color palette” gets old pretty quick.

So while I wouldn’t recommend the album I’ll keep coming back to their amazing live performances like this one: You Can Listen, You Can Talk.
