Hailing from the industrial high-rises of Tai Kok Tsui, Hong Kong, 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D. (which stands for“Drifters of South Asia”) release a self-titled LP on Yeti Out's Silk Road Sounds label, distributed by LA's Alpha Pup Records (home to Flying Lotus, Thundercat, etc). Adding a kick of synth-heavy dance to Hong Kong’s post-punk scene, the debut record is a satirical love affair with the city that never sleeps and pays homage to the forgotten Canton folk style "Namm Yam" -which is a specific singing style that circulated Hong Kong's opium dens and brothels before fading away in the 1930's due to government crack down. The 9-track LP is a soundtrack of the band’s own biopic, where Kowloon dessert dates and late drug order are all part of the narrative. “Mee & Gee” is a middle finger to the city’s disgusting consumer habits, while “18/F” is a melodic number recounting midnight run-ins with local street hawkers, before a neo-psychedelic detour unwinds in “Anna.” The LP is a fluctuation of emotions and reference points to canto film, folk music and freedom. Big city life may put pressure on all hustles of life, but the boys are taking their own stride, one matcha cake at a fucking time.
