P.K. 14, THE: City Weather Sailing: CD

May 27, 2011

The P.K.14 is a very progressive-sounding band from China that sings exclusively in Chinese. (So I have no idea what any of these songs are about. Not that that really matters to me.) The press release says they sound Like Television or the Talking Heads, but I don’t hear it. (It reminds me of Radiohead, but maybe that’s the only boring, slow, “progressive” band I know of. Don’t take my word for it.) Just seems like a bunch of boring Chinese guys who are creative and can play their instruments very well. This does not, however, make them an interesting band. It might be an effective insomnia cure, though.
