Chang befriended Forests guitarist-vocalist Jon Du when she lived in Taipei, and she recently passed along the group's forthcoming No Fun, which lives up to the description the band gave Chang for her Reader piece: "Sweater punk? Psychedelic surf rock? Garage Woo Woo Woo." I was so giddy listening to the album I jumped at the chance to stream it on our site, and Forests gave us the thumbs-up. No Fun will be available to download from Forests' Bandcamp page Monday, and the group is plotting a U.S. tour. Until then take a listen to the Reader's exclusive stream of No Fun below, and if you like what you hear, pick up the band's split with Australia's White Lodge from Gary Records' website or at Bric-a-Brac Records.
Update: The premiere has come and gone, but you can still listen to No Fun via Bandcamp.
