What I'm Listening To: Pictures in Motion by The Shanghai Restoration Project

Our friend Dave Liang, aka the guy behind The Shanghai Restoration Project, has released his latest album Pictures in Motion. It's an electronic album of (mostly) instrumentals paying tribute to classic Chinese films of the 1930s and 1940s. Each track is inspired by a different movie from the era. Here's a cool medley of songs from Pictures in Motion, set to footage from these films:

I particularly love the scenes from the Chinese animated films. They're a trip. I've been listening to Pictures in Motion for the past week, and I'm really digging it. For more information about the album, go to the Shanghai Restoration Project website. And pick up your copy of Pictures in Motion from iTunes or Amazon.
