Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Jazz-Rock / Fusion / Canterbury Team

4 stars Very cool psychedelic electronica from a young trio of very creative, multi-talented musicians from Poland.

1. "Zanim" (3:37) is an odd little ditty with a kind of pop circus feel to it with multiple keyboards and drums seeming to wander each in their own directions beneath the vocal (in Polish) of Przemysław Piłaciński--which is the thread that holds the whole piece together. Kind of like AFTER CRYING meets FIVE-STOREY ENESMBLE. Przemysław has a very nice voice--not unlike that of DEAD CAN DANCE's Brendan PERRY. (8/10)

2. "Korkarlen" (5:58) is a kind of cinematic avant-RIO instrumental with shifting and tempos and moods. (8/10)

3. "Entropia" (15:26) opens like a of an Indian raga with a drone sound providing the background foundation for the solo saxophone and solo synth that alternate over the top. in fact, it's not until the 4:35 mark that a percussion instrument or bass line join in. The song continues to maintain an Indian vibe though much more in the German Kosmische style of psychedelic expression and albeit a very eerie, almost disturbing expression. (Thus the title!) At 8:50 the third section begins over which another very pleasant vocal from Przemysław Piłaciński ensues. Again I am reminded of AFTER CRYING's vocal delivery style (Tamas Gorgenyi?). This is truly an excellent song that would stand head to head with the best of its 1960/70s inspirateurs even if it is not very upbeat or hippie-happy-go-lucky. (10/10)

4. "Duchy Elektrycznosci (remix)" (4:11) has a very early-1980s feel and sound to it--as if some early English or French techno band were getting together with KRAFTWERK. The organ, electronic drums and rolling bass line get me! (9/10)

5. "Ludzie-muchomory" (11:35) opens with spoken word over throat vocals and organs which gradually play out to make way for a long, slow, hypnotic organ, synth and rolling bass-based Kosmisches jam. (9/10)

A very cool album of refreshing eclecticism that I highly recommend to y'all progheads!

3 stars The so far last demo from this band and a free Jamendo download.

The band have moved on from Demo II which I reviewed some days ago. They have found their style and it is clearly the Canterbury scene they desire most. The male and female Polish vocals slightly hide their Caravan inspirations and similarities. Richard Sinclair, their vocalists are not. The fuzzy Hammond organ and the jazzy guitars is dominating the airwaves too. Add some Frank Zappa influences too and you get a heady brew.

This demo is only seventeen minutes long but the band uses these minutes to great effect. This is a good demo which I am sure those who download it will find enjoyable.

3 stars

2 stars I was sent the link to this free download album at Jamendo by the band. Thank you guys.

This demo was released back in 2004 and it is their second demo. I have yet to hear their first demo. But the band is still in a development phase on this demo too. They pack a lot into this thirty-five minutes long demo.

First of all, the sound is very good so no quarrels there. The drum sound is a bit dubious though. Sometimes, it feels like the drums has been recorded in a field, far away from the mics. The rest of the instruments sound comes out fine though. In particular the guitars which is very much in the front of the mix.

This being a demo, the band wants to showcase what they are doing. Which is a lot. It is really difficult to describe this demo (Read: download and listen yourself !) because it is style wise all over the place. From Krautrock to space rock to jazz, avant-garde and a large dosage of post rock too. There are even some female vocals here. But the basis is actually post rock on this album.

Quality wise, this is indeed an interesting demo with decent quality. It does sorely lack some really good melody lines, details and songs. It is also a bit incoherent too. But it is still a very decent demo which can be obtained from jamendo.com/pl/artist/snr

3 stars Polish band Signal to Noise Ratio sure know how to make music that is distinctly uncommercial.

They go back to the 70's for their main inspirations, with psychedelic rock as well as krautrock as major influences. The band adds some jazz influences to their tunes as well, in particular to the drumming, and have a tendency to create songs with disharmonies and even cacaphonic tendencies at times.

Add some modern synths, samples and sounds too - and you get a rather eclectic mix that is rather challenging to listen to; fascinating and intriguing when it works but frustrating and slightly annoying when it doesn't.

All in all a mixed affair, and one that should have it's strongest appeal to people into early 70's psychedelic rock and krautrock.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
