avarus

a veces es necesario dejar pasar el tiempo y volver a ciertos discos una vez pasada la resaca. el paso del poquito tiempo no le ha restado ni una de sus virtudes a Jättiläisrotta. el disco más negro y tribal de Avarus, el más incómodo. y el más tremendo
"Jättiläisrotta (Secret Eye) cycles between rumbling free jazz, airy tribalism, and spaced-out Day of Niagara sessions. They manage also to slip the lovely underwater, near-folk strum-a-long "Ahoistava Haisemisen Loordi" into the mix. "Prinssihalonen" kicks up a chiming psychedelic vortex as powerful as anything Avarus has done to date. The strings are skyrockets and the boom-crash chugga-chugga drums are a treat. Throughout, think Sunburned Hand of the Man, perhaps the collective's best, kindred analogue." - Brandon Stosuy for Pitchfork
"Avarus have reached new heights on "Jättiläisrotta." This is fun music. It's about sitting down with friends with a few drinks and having a good time. Now if only every such encounter would produce such fantastic aural results. Avarus are definitely one-of-a-kind." - Brad Rose for Foxy Digitalis
"The wide-eyed forest dwellers of Avarus come from the pool of Finnish musicians that spawned the magnificent Kemialliset Ystävät. They play a brand of music on the outer extremes of the free-folk movement. A spirit of drugged-out frenzy drives this relentlessly changing music, resulting in songs that evolve like a species: not on an obvious linear path, but in fits and starts-obeying a strange logic inaccessible to the players themselves. Avarus conjures a gorgeous and frightening musical object, and they capture the feeling of mystery of music on acid." - Bryan Berge from Stylus Magazine
"Avarus will melt your mind and free your soul. Wander into their dark forest and join the tribe"
