Two of the Polish people that I’ve known over the years have been right hard bastards. One of them used to have half a dead cow hanging in his garage - off of which he’d tenderly carve strips of raw meat and munch on them whenever I went round for the loan of a spanner and such like - he lived to the age of 89. A true beast of a human.... So, like I’d better be nice about this album from Polish sonic explorers Księżyc right? They might get a flight over and kick my face off.
Well fortunately for us all they can save the price of the flight and I don’t have to tell little white lies - because this album is actually great. But you already know this because it appeared on many 2015 end of year lists. We didn’t bother to review it as it was only available on CD and we don't acknowledge music that only exists on CD because we’re dinosaurs and they won’t play on our turntable.
I should probably say something about what this sounds like… okay it sounds both ancient and modern at the same time, kinda in a similar way to Twinkle³ with Sidsel Endresen there’s a real otherworldly feel at times; like some sort of ambient folk jazz drone vibe I can’t put my finger on. Yes I know that makes it sound terrible doesn’t it “ambient folk jazz”. What am I writing? Where’s the noose arghhh! Someone put me out of my misery. Kinda reminds me of 多加美 (Takami) - 天使行ーY. De Noir Ⅱ album from 1983 on LLE label outta Japan. Highly recommended.
