Sweet Home, Go! is the stunning ninth studio album from Chinese experimental post-rock unit WANG WEN. Set for release on CD and vinyl formats this Fall via Pelagic Records, Sweet Home, Go! was written over the past three years and completed in early January under the supervision of producers Wouter and Lode Vlaminck. The new experience of working with external and European producers forged a fine balance between the creative yearning to explore new threads, contradictions, conflicts, and the producers' desire for clarity. The resulting tracks -- including an a cappella track recorded in an abandoned factory -- sees WANG WEN surpassing themselves and continuing their seventeen-year-long journey to understand themselves and the outside world through their music. This ambitious voyage has brought them tremendous success in their home country of China, where the band has been selling out 1500-capacity venues on their recent tour.

"Over the last few years, it feels like time has been spinning out of control. As time speeds by, it makes people feel an indescribable excitement but also a feeling of suffocation. Just as we become used to the ways of today, things change in a flash. The Internet has seemingly brought people closer together, but in fact, is has plunged us into the many deep cracks of space and time."

The packaging of Sweet Home, Go! is equally spectacular boasting two different inner sleeves (printed on the inside and outside) showing through the die cut hole of an outer box sleeve, printed on special fabric paper and creating a total of four different front cover impressions, depending on which sleeve and which side is up. An additional 30x30 cm art book comes with the vinyl edition. This kind of attention to detail is indicative of a band that take outstanding care not only about their music, but also about the visual and haptic aspects of their art. WANG WEN professes a holistic approach to art, focused (but not solely limited) on their extraordinary music. Fans of Mogwai, Radiohead, PG.Lost, Sigur Rós, Explosions In The Sky, This Will Destroy You, Cult Of Luna, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor pay heed.
