KAPU & STWST KOOP

Seven That Spells

It seems there's a some sort of connection between Croatia and Japan when it comes to prog rock. Seven That Spells were formed in Zagreb, Croatia formed in 2003. The core of the band is Niko 'Brain' Potočnjak, the guitarist, the producer (and also a member of TIGROVA MAST). The band's psychedelic style is clearly influenced with ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE, they even collaborated with Makoto Kawabata (and Tsuyama Atsushi), recorded an album together, and toured in Japani... However, they started in 2003 as a trio - Tomislav Kalousek was on bass and Stjepan Jureković on drums. They did their debut (which was remastered in '05) and showed their musical potential to the audience. In '05 they signed for the Russian RAIG label, a well known one among the Russian avant/prog circles. The second album 'My Mommy Wants To Kiss Your Mamma'was released with Hrvoje Niksić reinforcing the band on synthesizers. The first notable change in band's line-up happened in 2006, when Tvrtko Dujmović took a role of a bassist, Igor Potočnjak (any relation with Niko?) swapped place with Niksić, and Mario Peretić took the drummer's seat. They released 'It Came From The Planet Of Love' that year (also for Russian RAIG).

NI

"dedoda", das dritte Album von NI, umfasst Komplexe Kompositionen, Noiseattacken, Lachanfälle. Immer noch drei E-Gitarren und ein Schlagzeug, immer noch lieblich-vertrackt und warmherzig-brutal, immer noch durchgeknallt und genialisch. NI spielen keine Riffs. Sie versetzen und stapeln, metarocken, subrocken, rockrocken, legen 4D-Ornamente, brüten Poltergeister aus und lassen sie schweben. Noch nie wurde so viel gesungen bei NI. Alle vier Bandmitglieder stimmen ein, bellen feingehackte Silben, zwischen zwei Takten zeugen sie ein Dada und tragen es gregorianisch aus, das kompakte Minimalösterreichisch wird im Kanon zur Lautpoesie.

NI bleiben in Bewegung und sich damit treu, sie bleiben ein Gesamtkunstwerk. Zu jeder neuen Platte gibt es neue passende Bühnenoutfits. Diesmal sind es tiefrote Gewänder, denen weiße Figurationen entwachsen. Passende Hüte gibts obendrein oben drauf. "dedoda" ballert freundlich ins Gehirn, zieht die Mundwinkel gen Firmament, öffnet das Herz von Mensch und Kobold gleichermaßen.

The Ills

Postrock, shoegaze, prog-rock, experimental - a lot of labels have been put on The Ills' music. It is their live performances though where it all gets together and their musical skills and intense atmosphere meet with punk attitude and almost hardcore drive. Ethereal and gentle one minute, dark and chaotic the next!

The Ills' new album called Disco Volante / Mt. Average will be released on 19th February 2019 on Deadred Records/Starcastic Records
