    Vialka – gypsy turbofolkpunk / Kruzenshtern I Parohod – John Zorn gone klezmer, sort of. Interesting idea for a split CD from Auris Media under the all-hearing ear of sound mastermind Udi Koomran. Vialka's half – interesting as a novelty, but really does wear off after a while / Kruzenshtern I Parohod's half – interesting, both as a novelty and as the real thing, and doesn’t wear off!

    In my last year’s review of a Vialka live gig, a certain recording session was mentioned, in addition to the similarity to Kruzenshtern & Parohod. So finally, here it is: the session and the match up. Read more...



  • Bernardinai (Lithuanian)
    Grupe is Izraelio "Kruzenshtern & Parohod" po dvieju gastroliu jau spejo isiminti ir pamilti Vilniaus alternatyvios muzikos gerbejai. Sekmingai kurdami klezmerio (zydu folkloro muzika), dziazo, hardcoro, pankroko bei avangardo jungini (patys muzikantai savo stiliu apibudina kaip karate-box-jazz), persunkta sudetingu, painiu kompoziciju bei melodingumu, grupe savo muzika nepalieka abejingu klausytoju.

    You only need to spot the fact that Kruzenshtern and Parohod are on this record to know you're in for a crazy treat, but Vialka are a new band to me and I'm intrigued to find out who would want to share album space with Israel's kings of Traditional meets Hardcore! Read more...

    Kruzenshtern I Parohod has always been an avant-garde party band and that is exactly what they do here: party! Bassist Igor Krutogolov, clarinetist Ruslan Gross and drummer Guy Shechter are here joined by accordion player Olya Yelensky. To celebrate the newcomer's arrival in the band, two early classics of the trio are joyfully revisited: "Tort" (from The Craft of Primitive Klezmer) and "Young Ones" (from Songs), both given exhilarating readings. These are complemented by two new compositions, the frantically swinging "Piratskaja," and the simply frantic "Karate." Read more...

    This is my first encounter with these musicians' work, though at the same time I experience a kind of deja vu when listening to their music. The point is that all the releases which I've received from Israel since 2003 concern Rock In Opposition, thus inevitably making me think that, along with Belgium, this country is one of the richest in that genre's performers. It is not for the first time that I find elements of Jewish folk music interwoven with RIO structures, but on the other hand, it's clear to me that KIP reveals just a perfectly balanced synthesis of those styles, most often eliminating any frontiers between them.
