Live in Chernivtsi, June 30th 2017

Riasni Drova Consort played live in Chernivtsi at the end of June, five years after the first concert there, again organised by Zhan Pobe / Dzestra. We’re quite happy about how it turned out this time. There are some photos from the concert. Also the full audio recording is available on Bandcamp:

Two (long overdue) archival releases for this fall from the Riasni Drova camp

The label that was interested in Green Ray District as a split side went to sleep about a year ago. This short album includes another episode of our JJNilesploitation series and comes in an anatomical mix specifically for the prying ears for whom bathing in atmospherics is the last thing on their minds.

And straight from the obskuryatnik comes the second one, this time from Riasni Drova Consort: Famiglie, intere specie di bagagli. Similar story: the friendly label that cared for this album went into anabiosis as far back as 2010. Andrij thinks that “sub-Incus avant rednecks” sums up the music here very well; this was maybe the last session when we felt fine and happy doing something of this sort. Soon afterwards we became preoccupied with quite different flows.

Complications Set In: new free release by Riasni Drova Consort

Complications Set In: new free release by Riasni Drova Consort

Head submerged in a fountain, legs shoved each into its own blind alley, using abdomenal contractions, elbows and fingers, it tickles, it anthemizes… “Complications Set In” was recorded throughout 2011 employing plucked psaltery, guitar-centered chain fission and other varieties of sprawling aural puff pastry in which components of our favourite Ivor Cutler song wallow. The album includes a collage booklet by Temko Czech. Proceed to the bandcamp by clicking on the cover. Also published on the FMA courtesy of our friend We Have No Zen!

New tape soon on Swollen Avantgarde

New tape soon on Swollen Avantgarde

An infamously hip date in December will see a new Riasni Drova Consort tape out on Swollen Avantgarde, the label of Matteo Poggi (Suburban Howl). This will be the “A Day at the Races” to our cae-sur-a tape’s “A Night at the Opera”, and even their titles will rhyme.

Yellow Grass Dam

Our archival self-release stream quietly trickles on. “Yellow Grass Dam” is a new free release on Riasni Drova Consort’s bandcamp. It sums up our 2010 joys and concerns pretty decisively. Like the “Berezhene” CD-R, but with better butter.

A Still Better Seaward Peep

A Still Better Seaward Peep

Riasni Drova Consort’s first tape release is out now on Cory E. Card and Jen Marquart’s cae-sur-a label, as part of their beautiful newest batch of seven tapes! Edition of 100. Recorded in mid-2011 (RDC’s Xmas jet lag season). Child ballad noise sequences as dignified as the Log Lady. You can listen to an excerpt and buy the tape here.
