The third album by Beijing trio Re-TROS (or Rebuilding the Rights of Statues to give them their full name) is an extraordinary listen, one that screams in your face demanding you pay attention but can also offer a hug or a dreamy lullaby just as effectively. It's predominantly a post punk LP, but you.
Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues, better known as Re-TROS, were forerunners of the so-called China-rock explosion of the mid-2000s, where a raft of groups inspired by western post-punk rose to prominence. Theirs was one of the scene.
