Band: 10000 RUSSOS
Who: A trio that emerged from what they call “a dark, decadent city of a peripheral country in a peripheral continent”: Porto, Portugal. They formed in 2012 and soon released a four-track EP, triggering some national buzz and, as many great guitar bands these days, they stumbled upon the international Psych community.
Sound: “In opposition to most of their peers, 10,000 Russos have concentrated on creating soundscapes of the subconscious. Recalling the savage and repetitive progressions of Neu!
and the longest and grimmest drones of Suicide, the marching heartbeat in the background gives the music the stomp of a solemn drumming ritual across the wastelands of the mind.”
Score: ‘Kompromat’ is an endless mind-blowing psychedelic journey that will transfer you to a trance-like state of escapism once you pressed play. Droning groove extravaganza and inexhaustible Krautrock eccentricity from another galaxy, far away from the boredom of our daily reality. Your aural perception will never be the same again after this trip.
