Listen/purchase: Rainbow Mountain by Sparrow
Here is another band from the 1724 Records Bandcamp: the Beijing quartet Sparrow (文雀). This is instrumental rock, with some songs on the album going definitely into post-rock territory, e.g., the title track, Rainbow Mountain, that closes the 2012 release.
It really is a beautiful guitar rock album, nothing overly flashy, partnering with a super-solid rhythm section. A powerful live act, I imagine. (I’ll look around for some live video)
They’ve played shows as recently as June, but are planning to devote some down time the rest of the year to recording the next album.
By the way, the official website they list is just an error link, but they are updating their weibo microblogging site. (And the douban page above works, of course)
