Carsick Cars | Amoeba Music: Free In-Store Mini Concerts

Carsick Cars is one of the most established indie rock bands in China. Their much-anticipated third studio album 3 (produced by Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 and Hamish Kilgour of The Clean in New York) releases February 28th on Maybe Mars.

Formed in 2005, Carsick Cars has been at the center of the musical explosion in Beijing. They have received a mixture of snarling opprobrium (especially from their elders) and near-fanatic enthusiasm from their rapidly growing fan base — the culturally sophisticated but alienated younger generation of China.

The band’s shows indicate how for many in the young audience, Carsick Cars “belongs” to them just as much as the young Bob Dylan “belonged” to his fans in the mid-1960s. Besides being one of the most admired and written-about bands in China, they have also received a huge amount of attention from musicians and critics in Europe and North America. They have played in numerous festivals, most notably All Tomorrow’s Parties in the UK and the Primavera Sound in Barcelona, and toured with Sonic Youth in Europe.
