Prog Reviewer
4 stars 'Vorkoma' is a collection of short tracks composed by KROBAK between recording 'The Diary of the Missed One' demo and sessions for final version of the LP. Four short pieces, each built on one theme, minimalistic and very cinematic in feeling and mood (actually, 'Three Tired Hands' is inspired by A.Badalamenti's music for David Lynch movies). 'They're all shot this winter' is dedicated to the victims of public places' gunshot terrors, it's laid-back and sad, resulting in a powerful mourning climax. Abovementioned 'Three Tired Hands' bears its influences on the sleeves; indeed, quite a Badalamentic piece. 'As Fresh As The Air Of The Night' is barocco-like two-guitar sketch, with some background noise guitar in the middle. The last piece, piano-guitar driven 'Everyday...' is entirely improvisational, spontaneously recorded on a cheap tape recorder few years ago and remastered for this EP. Again, this item goes for free download on LastFM and MySpace; it reveals the other side of KROBAK's creativity - no epics or monstrous build-ups, just short cinematic sketches. Recommended!
