more on afterquake

Jeff Yang's latest "Asian Pop" column takes a look at Afterquake, a music collaboration by electronica artist Dave Liang (Shanghai Restoration Project) and folk musician Abigial Washburn created to fund continuing efforts victims of the Sichuan earthquake: The Sichuan Restoration Project.

Afterquake was also recently profiled in the New York Times Music Popcast: Weekly Popcast: Green Day, Afterquake and More. Kind of funny hearing about this record alongside the likes of Green Day and Mars Volta, but it's cool to hear them talk about the ideas and sounds that went into the project.

If you haven't heard it yet, the seven song EP is a really interesting, haunting work. Learn more (and hear samples) here. It's available at the usual spots like Amazon and iTunesicon. And remember, proceeds from the project go to Sichuan Quake Relief.
