A Road Playlist by Beijing’s Re-TROS

Post punk trio
Re-TROS has been an influence on the Beijing music scene since 2005 with their album Cut Off! and subsequent release, 2009’s Watch Out! Climate Has Changed, Fat Mum Rises.  Beyond Beijing the trio has made a name for themselves garnering fans like Johnny Rotten, guest keyboards by Brian Eno, tours with Gang of Four, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Paul Weller, Cut Copy, and an upcoming fall tour with Xiu Xiu.  They recently made their way to the states for a string of dates in the US and Canada and lived to tell us about it.  

Check out some pics from their tour and listen to all the music they listened to while doing it.  It’s a killer playlist.
