The Beijing outfit Perpetual Motion Machine, formed just last year, is already preparing to release a second album, Imperial City Diary (皇城饮恨录). They’ll be playing tonight at Blue Stream Bar to celebrate. Live Beijing Music describes it as “a concept album of sorts, one that gives a rock and roll history lesson on this great city (the band has often before made references to China’s history).” Also, apparently they’re selling some really cool T-shirts.
The song featured here is Beihai off its first album, Apocalypse (天启).
Bonus: preview of its second album:
