Two new Consort releases

Lagging a bit with site updates… two new Consort releases were released on Bandcamp during the recent months. One is based around songs Jaroslav’s grandmother used to sing, and touches on many ideas/places besides that; in a way it’s continuing where “Наладнав; забув” left off. The other one is a peek into a certain mode and quality of playing that we reached around 2012 (and that lasted until 2013), and to allow more focus on that, it has no cuts/edits, just a few longish pieces recorded as played from start to finish.

Riasni Drova – s/t (2017)

The Riasni Drova duo was “discontinued” around 2014 in favor of the Consort, but several releases are still planned. There are many reasons for this one to be self-titled.

Navel Songs and Ballast, Vol. III

A fill-in-the-blanks gucci rapidshare release. First side: our take on #хлопськийнойз from 2011. Second side: Marenych nostrum.

Наладнав; забув (2015)

Наладнав; забув (2015)The most deliberately assembled album of the Ukrainian trio to date. Baroque-era horses grazing among ionized leftovers of retired contemporary musics. Distance without irony. Freeform art going native and learning to incorporate its doubt and suspicion into its freedom. Tangible unprotected things and songs. (Also up on FMA.)

Years of Care

New release of old mono recordings on Bandcamp. Chorales, fantasias and romps with Taras Fedirko.

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!
