SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Second album of Olive Mess - avant band from my neighbour country of Latvia is very professional mix of chamber rock, some jazzy elements,folk motives (mostly Celtic) and zeuhl aesthetics.

Just four long (from 10 to 17 minutes) compositions, but albums itself looks very concentrated. Two very complex, sometimes dissonant guitars ( you can hear obvious Frippian influence between others), zeuhlish drumming, bagpipes and some vocals in times. Music is a pyramid of rhythm breaks and structures, nervous,sometimes dark, sometimes airy baroqueness. Vocals are mostly in English (with Latvian accent). Unusual combination of medieval music, chamber avant,jazz-rock and zeuhl.

Band is obscure even in their home country, all musicians has their main job outside of it. Just few concerts per year, album's recording once per some years. It's pity, band plays very professional and original music. Really recommended to everyone interested in complex modern avant rock with roots in baroque sound and zeuhl atmosphere.
