Stara Rzeka - Cień chmury nad ukrytym polem

Stara Rzeka (Old River) is the solo project of Kuba Ziołek from Poland. Thanks to the Weedtemple blog who featured his fellow-countryman.

Stara Rzeka starts strong with a repetetiv fingerpicking guitar number that dissolves in some strumming and later in a cosmic synth sequence driven bei a echoed drum-machine. Lets say Mark McGuire is joined by Emeralds and then replaced by the Fuck Buttons. But more lofi and with the charme of a bedroom studio recording.

Next stop is a one man black metal show in some dark Norwegian woods and so it goes with reverbed lofi soundscapes, spaced out guitar strumming just to open the can of electro-kraut-rock with Nächtlich Spaziergang durch Klinger.

My Only Child is the cosmic and sacral ending track.

This record is a great trippy cosmic folk thing and exist in two editions, as CD and as tape.

Highly recommended!
