“你終於 給我走開 。 I will be fine.”

“I Will Be Fine” by Waa Wei | Shalla’s way of figuring out which tune she should give a try: look at the album art. Last week, while browsing at the Eslite store in Dunhua, I made a bit of a variation: I took a photo of this album, with the note of writing about it. Now, after having listened to the whole album (it happens to be on Deezer), I think I regret the decision. Waa Wei is a singer-songwriter, former frontwoman for the Taiwanese band Natural Q, and also a DJ at the radio station I listened to in the days leading up to the trip. (I think I listened to her show, unknowingly.) “I Will Be Fine” is from her latest album Run! Frantic Flowers!, which was released just last November; a jazzy-ish delight along the lines of Sheena Ringo’s latest, a contrast with the other track I listened to, “Only You”, which showcases that coo of hers. In hindsight I should have picked up that album on a whim. It’s not something I do, but, well, trust the album art metric sometimes. [NB]
