sashash ulz

"a fresh and vibrant stream coming from Petrozavodsk, Karelia. this album has been recorded over an old tape, pressing rec/stop any time Sasha felt like. not really bothering to calculate track/side lengths, there’s no soundwork either (except the lowest-finest). no clear concept throughtout the record, all tracks are first takes. delayed guitar compositions erupt into creepy organ washes, interrupted by poppy instrumentals with Ariel Pinkish cardboard drumming and even a raga-esque acoustic guitar piece." fon 

"after a cassette release on great Sweat Lodge Guru and a split work with Swim with a carrot (as Dva Zagorodnyh Doma) Sasha delivers a new full-length work 'Voln'. ten lo-fi tropical jams with transliterated Russian titles open for you a muzzy and elusive world of slurred but sharp, enticing but righteous feelings and colors. unstable blurred drones, far/low guitars and handmade sounds will like a weather make you a whole day." ddb
