Loskot - Sun (2005)

Although I am focused on this blog on what is going on in polish jazz at this moment, it is very important for me to be able to go back from time to time. Like today when I decided to recall excellent recording by Łoskot (din) titled "Sun".
If you like such fantastic bands of today  as Pink Freud, Contemporary Noise Sextet or Dziki Jazz (title of album), you should definitely check this record as well because all above mentioned bands are deeply indebted in music as created by  Łoskot.
Mikołaj Trzaska on bass clarinet and alto sax, Piotr Pawlak on guitar, Olo Walicki on double bass and Tomek Gwinciński on drums were all involved in yass revolution in Poland, here they created a very special blend of jazz, psychodelic rock, music build on trance-like grooves, catapulting us effectively in alternate dimensions of out-of-mainstream reality.
Since then this surprising melange of self-ironic avant-garde with pop-like accessibility has became new Polish bands specialite-de-la-maison and allowed them to persuade more and more listeners to music so much better than Lady Gaga, Madonna or Seal.   

Please, listen to sample of music from this album:
