Home of Lviv-based trio/duo
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.
A fill-in-the-blanks gucci rapidshare release. First side: our take on #хлопськийнойз from 2011. Second side: Marenych nostrum.
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.)
Bearded Snails is a GOLD-inside/GOLD-outside compilation celebrating the 100th release on A Beard of Snails. Riasni Drova is on it with a short Nico cover (a song from The End), and it’s followed by a Caligine piece as pretty as a transparent tree, and so on. Three mini CD-Rs of decidedly non-throw-away content. Buy here (Berezhene, an older Riasni Drova Consort CD-R, is still available at the same place, down to its last copies).
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.
The freshest Riasni Drova Consort, a live session performed early this June in Chernivtsi at the “Literatur Cafe”, is available now for your ears (bandcamp listen/download). One and a half hours of warmups, breakdowns, Lost Reformation scrape, three tragic songs and long hopeful stretches of “аж тіпає”. To make you feel even more as if you were there, here are some photos. Thank you the organizers and the audience!
Найсвіжіші Рясні Дрова Консорт, концерт зіграний 2 червня в чернівецькому “Literatur Cafe”, вже можна завантажити чи послухати на bandcamp. Щоб ще краще уявити що там було – ось кілька фото. Дякуємо організаторам і слухачам!
