MWBDI in The Quietus

7 Feb

“Analog synths oscillate and drone around guitar and sitars, resulting in a classic expression of Kosmische… An album that finds a group of musicians knowing how to be both playful and artful while grooving on an occult wavelength”…

A lovely review of Raagnagrok‘s  Man Woman Birth Death Infinity by Peter Bergegal, writing in The Quietus.

Which seems like a good time to remind you that you can buy hard copies in the UK/ EU here, and in the USA, here. It’s also now available as a digital download.

Lovely review of Raagnagrok‘s Man Woman Birth Death Infinity over at Freq.org

“Raagnagrok have been described as “kosmische exotica”, “Euclidean Dronemusic For Algorithmic Lovers” and “Mesopotamian Grokmusic For The End Of Days”. This sense of humor mixed with awesomeness makes me think that Iwould like these people, and they are worthy of adulation.

Man Woman Birth Death Infinity will appeal to classic drone heads, to fans of Cluster, Terry Riley and La Monte Young, as well as recent psych masters like Expo 70 and Gnod. If you’re looking for a shamanic journey into past lives, look no further.”

You can get your copy from Lotushouse Records

Implicate Explicate 12″

RKMP

Implicate Explicate, a synthesiser collaboration with film maker and musician Rose Kallal is now available on 12″ vinyl and download from We Can Elude Control. The EP includes reversionings by Ekoplekz, TVO and Paul Purgas.

Says The Quietus’ Rory Gibb: it’s ‘impressively dense and mind-altering stuff, piling on textural material into a thick harmonic stew that gives the contradictory impression of being simultaneously totally still and in continual inward motion’.

You can buy the 12″ or Mp3s from Boomkat.

Meanwhile, here’s an earlier version of the track with Rose’s visuals.

Raagnagrok: Man Woman Birth Death Infinity

The first Raagnagrok album, Man Woman Birth Death Infinity, is released on Lotushouse Records in early September 2013. Zali Krisha plays electric sitar and guitar, Mark Pilkington plays synthesisers and electronics.

The album features an hour of exotica kosmische, and cover art by Leila Dear.
Several of the tracks are live jams recorded on one afternoon in 2008, others are studio creations pieced together between 201o and 2013. The music was later mastered by Daniel O’Sullivan.

From the press release:

“In July 2005, a small package was delivered to an address in Stamford Hill, London, for the attention of Mr Otto Amon and Mr Solomon Kirchner. The gentlemen who recieved the package have never revealed who sent it to them or what was inside it but a body of urban myth has grown up around the Lapis or Ovoid that was rumoured to have been seen in various locations around London, from Frognal to Fitzrovia.

“We are told that Amon and Kirchner subjected the Lapis to broad and narrow range frequencies in Pythagorean clusters which caused the object to “sing” or “recite”. We are also told that for five or six years, in spite of their efforts, the lustreless surface of the Ovoid could not be broken.

“The object, whatever it was, has never surfaced in the collectors’ market, and its recipients have maintained their silence. Whether their newly released recorded collaboration, Man Woman Birth Death Infinity, affords any clues, we cannot honestly say.”

Man Woman Birth Death Infinity is available early September from Lotushouse Records or here:
