"Reissue of two 10" from the years 1998 and 2003. Daur is the very first release of TROUM and it resents very post-rock sounding material wth a lot of decipherable guitar parts and good drive. Ljubimaya was released by the Russian label Waystyx and carries you towards lyrical and touchy eternity of everbeginning melodies without an end, into emptiness of existence with all the uterine roar provided by YEN POX project in one of the tracks. The covers uses psychodelic image manipulations by Dmitri "HUM" Chistov" [press-release]

"Troum means dream, and dream is a symbol for unconscious. Just like a daydream, this music can drive us to very deep, out of mind control domains from emotional side. Floating, blurred soundscapes takes you to the limits of everyday life. The enigmatic non-being, unreacheable ultimate harmony is far from mind capabilities and refuses to be rationally analyzed. This minialbum is the first vinyl release of Moscow based label Waystyx, and it remember us about russian tour of the legendary duo, which took place about a year ago. Dense and spheric, their sound progressed to the more subtle, fine aesthetics, carrying slightly minor intonations through all three pieces of this album, creating the wonderful shapes out of massive noise foundament. Especially speaking of “Meerestraum” (“The Sea Dream”), which is majestically eminent, enchanting your perception, drilling the dusky space of unconscious chaos, it fulfill your soul with confusion and yearning for mysteries and unknown places....."
