David B I'm a little late in finding this album. Easily one of the finest swirls I have heard this year. Wonderful psych with all sorts of cool touches. Great from beginning to end. Favorite track: 明日未知 Tomorrow Never Knows.

F. By turns sunny, strange, exotic and noisy. China is way more psychedelic than anyone ever suspected. Produced and mixed by super girl-genius Yang Fan (Hang on The Box, Ourself Beside Me). Favorite track: 不管是白猫还是黑猫 Black Cat, White Cat.


Chui Wan get their name from Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi’s “Qi Wu Lun”, a mystical work on the relationship between nature and human life. The spirit of Zhuangzi’s thought is reflected in the modern Chinese idiom “When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein.”

Inspired by this concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane, the core of Chui Wan’s sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulong and guitarist Liu Xinyu. Their lush arrangements of guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments and random sound samples often eschew reliable melodies and vocal harmonies in favor of occasional passages of minimal drone or maximal sonic layerings.
