Zhaoze - Intoxicatingly Lost
Zhaoze are a band from China who play a bewitching mix of post-rock and traditional Chinese music. 'Intoxicatingly Lost' is their first official western release. I've gotta say, never has an album's title been so apposite - the music is exquisite! The form and structure of post-rock has become a bit tired in recent years but Zhaoze raise it to a level where so many will fail to reach. The addition of traditional Chinese instruments gives proceedings a lush, ethnic vibe and a richness that beguiles and mesmerises. A beautiful, hypnotic album that I urge all and sundry to check out.
