Numbers (rec. 2002)




This album offers pleasantly broken rhythms and music that strives ambitiously toward what is atonal and polyrthytmic in modern improvised music. Its disadvantages are very schematic at moments rock based drumming and shy (though punctual) bass line. Leader's guitar is strongest side of this album though even in it one may be repelled by monotonous and one-sided phrasing.    

Track listing: 1. Numbers; 2. Motion; 3. Even Odd; 4. Ludowy; 5. Nie Zapomnę; 6. Aphasic; 7. Analgetic

Figures & Tales (2011)



This next release continues general "experimental" mood of first album although it is clear that sometimes musicians wanted to make their music sound more accessible to average listener. This is in my opinion promising direction for them if only it will be the course they stick to throughout the whole album. For the time being this album is not coherent at times hardcore avantgarde-like at times pop-ish. It is really difficult to withstand such a mixture...

And more experimental one (note simplistic drumming and meager bass line):
