Rap isn’t a style of music typically associated with softness. But for the Tainan, Taiwan rapper Soft Lipa, comfort is the name of the game: Over ultra-smooth jazz beats, he raps about the likes of teddy bears and small pleasures. He’s joined by the alt-rock folk experimentalists Sheng Xiang & Band, who sing in Hakka, a language spoken in the mountainous regions of Taiwan, and the math rock group Elephant Gym, for a night of Taiwanese Waves.
