Zhaoze - Yesternight Yes Tonight (2015)
The fifth album from this Chinese band.
The band was a quartet on this album with a lineup of glockenspiel, melodica, guitars, bass, drums, xioa, guqin and some vocals.
Their fourth album, Intoxicatingly Lost (2014 too), was pretty impressive and a view inside Chinese music. One view I very much liked. See my review here.
Yesternight Yes Tonight is another Chinese take on post-rock.
Forty minutes of post-rock. This time not as radical and so Chinese classical music dominated as the previous album.
The music here is much more post-rock formula based than previously. The other big difference is some minutes with Chinese vocals too.
The music is still pretty exotic and interesting. The music is also good and varied.
I have to admit I really like this band a lot and this album is a good post rock album, well worth checking out.
