St. Kraut biography
formed 2014, Russian Federation

ST. KRAUT was constituted by Alexandr Demidov (guitar), Mikhail Demidov (guitar, drums) and Evgenii Mikhalchenko (bass). They are deeply inspired by the landscapes of St. Petersburg born painter Nikolai Roerich. The band name directly points to the Kosmische music they are delivering, garnered with hypnotic grooves, loops and repetitive motifs. The release of an album trilogy is planned for the year 2020, resulting from recording sessions which took place in Summer 2017.

Review by Ur-Brad

4 stars The first track is glacially slow and shorn of any unneccessary refinements such as build-ups, break-downs, climaxes, fanfares and the rest of it. St Kraut remind me a little of Sand, Bohren & Der Club of Gore and perhaps German Oak. If you like hyper-repetitive grooves with the minimum of adornment. The bass forms the bedrock of the track, the drums keep a beat and an echo-laden and effects-ridden guitar does the rest. No keyboards, no vocals, no lyrics to distract us from the hypnotic pace. I can quite happily listen to the first track on 'repeat' for several hours.

Fruits De Mer have released the three St Kraut albums as a CDr triple pack for 12 (inc p&p), so it's not a huge investment. I think this first album may be the best of the three but haven't had a chance to listen in detail to the second two yet.

The band move into higher gear as the album progresses, but it's the first track I'll keep coming back to.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
