Beijing-based post rock label 1724 Records continues shining a spotlight on China’s budding post rock talent with the self-titled debut from Zhangjiajie’s Muggle. And that’s pretty much all that’s known about them. But what a wonderful debut it is, using the genre as a jumping off point for exploring paths less often taken. Electronic sampling is prevalent throughout, infusing the tracks with an almost dancehall melodic drive, and allowing each of the songs to evolve in innovative and intriguing ways. Just listen to the grind and buzz that turns ‘Sea to Sky’ into a clubhall mix, or how the vocals slowly transform ‘Lotus Valley’ into an existential hip hop track. In a time where post rock has become so repetitive and characterless, it’s amazing to see a group trying to inject into the genre. Grab Muggle over at 1724’s bandcamp.
