Wang Wen, formed in 1999 in Dalian, China, is as much a pillar of Asian Post-Rock as MONO from Japan. Both bands are not only known for bending genre rules and limits, but they’re also signed to one of Europe’s most important record labels for independent music: Pelagic Records, from where you can also get the most of the band’s albums in various, beautiful vinyl editions.

Wang Wen’s most recent outlet is the live album All Yesterday’s Parties, which was released on the 10th of February, 2024. The album compiles live recordings that offers a wide range of songs all across Wang Wen’s studio albums.

While the release may seem like a birthday tribute, it’s more a reflection of the band’s past DNA, which is most tangible on the track Polluted Pond. Originally released on their fourth album, IV, the live version of the song on All Yesterday’s Parties makes this already perfect song even more perfect by adding more atmosphere. It’s the little details that encourage you to listen to it on repeat.
