“I Have No Tail” (by Riasni Drova Consort)
The Ukrainian pastoral skronk ensemble, whose recent releases include tapes on the //cae-sur-a// and Swollen Avantgarde labels, keeps slowly swelling on in this corner of the internet. Head submerged in a fountain, legs shoved each into its own blind alley, using abdomenal contractions, elbows and fingers, it tickles, it anthemizes... This new release was recorded throughout 2011 employing plucked psaltery, guitar-centered chain fission and other varieties of sprawling aural puff pastry in which components of their favourite Ivor Cutler song wallow.
Riasni Drova Consort are Jaroslav Ilnytskyi, Andrij Orel, Oleg Vorobyov.
