RAPOON - Airstrikes / Easterly Moon

Format: do-CD
Label & Cat.Number: Zoharum ZOHAR 156-2 / 2 B
Release Year: 2018
Note: AIRSTRIKES is an album with lots of 'oriental' or fake-ethno elements, harmonies and trance-rhythmic movements, drenched in dream-like echoes (the living environment of humans?), ruptured at times by cold vocal material (the world of machines and desctruction?), an excellent RAPOON album with narrative edge; this special ed. has a full live CD "Easterly Moon" with a recording from Warsaw March 2017 (45+ minutes) with completely different material; lim. 100
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €18.00


More Info

'Airstrikes' is Robin Storey's brand new album on Zoharum since 'Blue Days' released back in 2015. Unlike the latter, 'Airstrikes' contains longer compositions that combine the different recurring themes from Rapoon repertoire from the past 25 years. These are both inspirations from oriental music and rhythmic structures that derive directly from dance music. The seven compositions on the album are subtle observations of the processes taking place in the modern world.

Airstrikes announced on the news bulletin with the same detachment as announcing a rise in the price of petrol...
A computer game a dancing crosshairs above a target...
The sound of a dulcimer playing an ancient song careens through the dusty, dry desert air...
Life persists.... we are such stuff as dreams are made on
