Я СЛЕВА ВВЕРХУ (title name in Russian) is one of those bands that you don’t know what to expect from. Noise-core, Math-metal and Post-rock mixed, Avant-like approach, Stoner-like sound; some obvious KC-like tricks; a sample from Tarkovsky’s “Stalker”; mostly short but mind-blowing tracks, ranging from soft background soundscapes to unleashed pure cacophony, jumping from one signature to another – more than wanted thing for any Experimental / Post-Rock / Krautrock / Avant fan! Don’t ask what I’m doing here with my review then – second part of “Lt. Columbo’s Wife” has a pretty catchy melodic groove, “Tu es Tue” is beautifully heavy, and … wait, do I really need to explain myself? I simple love it, there’s a beauty in this beast, and apart from most modern half-Indie self-proclaimed "genius" bands these guys do know what they’re playing and how it must be played! Anyone who’s also interested doesn’t need to give his last buck away to hear IAMABOVEONTHELEFT – I repeat, visit their LastFM page and get yourself their debut for free. Recommended!
