  • New review for Trenkel

    … intially unimpressed with Frans de Waard & Roel Meelkop’s sound I played it again whilst making some art and heard it differently…the insistent bass throb infiltrated my head whilst my guard was down, penetrating my conscious listening mind as it did, I thought ‘Hold on, that’s good’, whilst recognising that there were no deeply embedded […]
  • One more review for Trenkel

    Roel Meelkop et Frans de Waard, les deux membres de Wieman, sont deux musiciens cultes des scènes expérimentales, no wave et post-punk néerlandaises. Aperçus chez Raster Noton, 12K ou les Editions Mego, ils signent avec ce projet un nouveau concept sur le label ukrainien Kvitnu : il s’agit là d’un enrgistrement live d’une répétition de […]
  • Beach Sloth reviewed Wieman plays Goem

    Trenkel is the embodiment of intensity. Almost clinical in nature the sound evolves with great patience. Progression requires the songs to go on for great periods of time as the sounds are refined further and further. With the pieces the songs appears to come into view each and every second. Repetition serves as a welcome […]
  • Malfinia Ensemblo reviewed by Chain D.L.K.

    I’m not sure if the lovely scent of sweet almonds I perceived when I took the CD off its plastic wrapping belongs to the release, but I think it’s the first time a musical release manages to hit my nose before my hearing. I’ve not tried to lick the cover, whose effective silk printed artwork […]
  • Skug reviewed Malfinia Ensemblo

    Diese fröhliche Herkunftsverschleierung muss man sich auf der Zunge zergehen lassen. »Varsofia«, die CD des Malfinia Ensembles, wurde in Warschau eingespielt und auf dem ukrainischen Label Kvitnu veröffentlicht. Die Tracks auf »Varsofia« kommen in einem Hinkebeinspanischdaher (z. B. »La Universo Estas Atomo«), die beiden dafür verantwortlichen Herren (Andi Stecher & The Norman Conquest) stammen wiederum […]
  • New review for Asolaar’s “Interceptor”

    Had Suicide successfully evolved from the seventies it might have become Asolaar’s “Interceptor”. Asolaar wastes absolutely no time in setting the physical borderline violent atmospheres. Similar to Pan Sonic’s harsh work, Asolaar tends to work in the lower rumbles of sound making it felt as much as heard. Bass frequencies are phenomenal for the collection. […]
  • Another review for Volya

    The only veritable thing we could say about Ukrainian situation is the fact there is a cruel war where many economical interests are merging into a gory mixture which worms into people’s life in order to exacerbate contrasts, as what is happening in Ukraine has become the testbed of mass-media manipulation by both struggling parties […]
  • Chain D.L.K. review for Asolaar “Interceptor”

    Even if the excellent Ukrainian label Kvitnu situates Asolaar, the brainchild by Argentinean producer Dario Pinto Calvis, in between the artists which fly on the “heavy wing” of its oustanding sonic squadron, it seems that he has slightly softened his sound and such a mitigation is clear since the opening electric peristalsis. His sonorities on […]
  • Santa Sangre zine reviewed Zavoloka’s Volya EP

    ENG: “Volya” is a work of derived from a Kiev artist dealing with both music and visual arts. Kateryna is not a novice – just look at the biographical section on her website to realize that she has achieved a lot, including a “Gaude Polonia” scholarship funded by the Polish Ministry of Culture. “Volya” is her […]
  • Dagheisha about Volya

    Tre brani che sanciscono la definitiva consacrazione internazionale per un’artista di cui si è parlato troppo poco negli ultimi anni. ‘Volya’ significa libertà e per Kateryna Zavoloka x libertà non è soltanto musica elettronica ma anche artwork e potenza delle immagini. Non a caso cura la veste grafica di tutte le release della Kivitnu ed […]
