I Come To Shanghai August 15, 2009

Posted by Matthew in Music, Stuff.


If you’ve been a regular listener to any podcast starring freelance games journalist Robert Ashley (GFW Radio, A Life Well Wasted) then you are probably aware of his band – I Come To Shanghai – formed with his friend, Sam Frigard. Their debut album was released a few months back on their website as a free download, “name your price” download and a hard copy for $10 – the option I went for. I won’t pretend to be  a music buff or anything, all I’ll say is that their music is some pretty decent psychedelic pop/soft rock. My favourites out of the ten tracks are; “Pass the Time” with it’s simple yet hypnotic beat, the delicate piano melody in “I Watch You Sleep” and the muffled drums of “Salvation is the Country”. While perhaps too varied and disjointed at times, it’s a good album and worth checking out.
