4 stars This is the first step of a new russian, St. Petersburg based quartet named CIOLKOWSKA. A short but rather essential music collection, currently only available via download from their bandcamp page. Just for the reason that the recording quaIity does not fail at all and I really appreciate their output I would consider this a debut EP which consists of three songs. There's not much known about this band, but I'm quite sure this will change soon, if only they may have the impulse to act further.

The characteristic within the sound is a special dual guitar appearance. That means on one hand we have a more common - though surely excellent - psychedelic/space lead guitar work by Egor Svysokikhgor to state. And then Alesya Izlesa adds a valuable contrast, a fine native folk touch with her ukulele, this in a somewhat semi-acoustic manner. That will harmonize quite well and sometimes even sounds close to their fellow countrymen from Vespero.

This comparism is definitely valid, at least when it comes to the quality of the compositions. A surprising find - all four musicians yet are acting on a high level. 'At The Height Of The Trees' comes with 26 minutes of filigran and multi-layered psychedelic/space music, definitely attractive to genre fans.
