Cukier - Road to Recovery

With the infinite pallet of musical techniques and styles the world has created, Cukier's Road to Recovery seems to be a controlled approach to improvisational live music. The three artist involved Łukasz Kacperczyk, Michał Kasperek & Piotr Mełech push the sounds to the fringe and simultaneously exercise patience and restraint. Extremely foreign, like ritual music for metallic insects, Road to Recovery has a predisposition rooting itself with experience and talent.

The five tracks on this cassette do play in an exponential curve. The first batch of tracks, all titled "Attempt", covers the electronic spectrum. Synthesizer, clarinet and sparking energy swirl nonchalantly, creating unique environments on each track. Like a centrifuge pushing notes to the walls, all the while tethered to the core by Michal's percussion. Slowly building to the final track, "Rehab", the music crescendos in an electronic meltdown cymbal launch leaving the planetary atmosphere.

Wounded Knife released this cassette at the end of June in 2016. There are copies available from the labels bandcamp page. Another amazing live recording from Warsaw and Wounded Knife is there again to help more people hear whats a happening in northern Europe.
