pleased to meet you

Being a fairly reserved person, blogging was long anathema to my sense of private space. Maybe that’s why I am told UNITY SONG feels hermetic, obscure–unfriendly, even. Okay, then how to make the site friendlier? “Post something personal,” goes one helpful suggestion. Ah– so I thought a bit about what bloggers like to put up on their pages: pictures of their pets, their food, themselves…

Well, given that I’m not quite ready to camwhore, here’s my shelf:

Let's get personal

    wakingup: i agree! the other chris ho i really like is his collaboration with leslie. the title alone is already pure genius: “we are always halfway there”. i still can’t really put them together side by side in my head. it’s like two lost souls swimming in the fish bowl.

    lollyp: 80% of singapore live in shelves la

    you’d be surprised as to how many singaporean albums i’ve found at thrift shops like Cash Converters,, n even Sungei Road..

    Off the top off my mind i remember gettting a Livonia album at the Thieves Market, seeing 20 copies of Astreal’s ‘Oujiablush’ at CashConv Jurong..the best yet was getting ‘Kick – Freedom (In Me)’ [old john klass band !!!]

cd reviews

i'm always looking forwards as well as backwards, so i'm opening up the site for cd reviews of new music

if you're a band in singapore, malaysia or southeast asia with an album or ep out and would like your music savagely torn apart and skewered on a fat stick, drop me an email with UNITY SONG in the subject line at:

reviews will be done the UNITY SONG way: i will choose one song from your release to feature and provide an audio stream. cheers
