Sweet Home, Go! is the 9th studio album from Chinese leading experimental post-rock band, Wang Wen.
Sweet Home, Go! follows hot on the heels of Wang Wen’s ambitious vinyl, photo book and DVD box set, entitled In Course of The Miraculous: a collaboration with Chinese cinematographer Cheng Ran, who hired the band to compose a soundtrack for a 9 (!) hour film, which involved an improvised performance of the band in an artificially flooded warehouse.
The packaging of Sweet Home, Go! is equally spectacular: 2 different inner sleeves (printed on the inside and outside) are showing through the die cut hole of an outer box sleeve, printed on a special kind of fabric paper – creating a total of 4 different front cover impressions, depending on which sleeve and which side is up. An additional 30x30 cm art book comes with the vinyl version.
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 profess a holistic approach to art, focused (but not solely limited) on their extraordinary music...
