Assorted Flavors

New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones introduces Boredoms, a noise/punk-rock group straight from Japan. Their music is anything but boring.

Julia Thuy gives Tu Cong Phung’s “Nhu Chiec Que Diem” a shade of blues. Nice work, girl!

Damn! Ngoc Khue plagiarized Nguyen Thi Minh Thuong’s “Cha Va Mua Thu” almost word for word, and yet she is unapologetic about it. Very disappointing!

Ngoc Lan sang Trinh Cong Son. Love her rendition of “Biet Dau Nguon Coi.” She rode the up-tempo beat quite well.
