Viena has a lot of good sounds to offer. A new bird took off from the imperial nest. The name of that bird is Triptonus, and they are heavy, percussion driven and painted in trippy patterns.
The new album released by Triptonus tells a colorful story. The tunes are very nice at first listening, but then they become deep and more meaningful. What i really enjoy about it is the fact that the songs are so diverse. The albums begins in full force and in the middle we can enjoy samples of more medley chords, and north African subtle touches.
I've seen those guys live for about five times, and each time they play better and better.
The percussion and the didgeridoo play a special and unique part on this record. They give a more vibrant and tribe related kind of bond with the public.
The long jams were packed in a 8 track full album that looks amazing, because the cover was designed by Kape Illustration. It's also good to hear familiar strings around, as Bren from The :Egocentrics plays a delightful role in this sonic realm
To specify just one song that i enjoy,i will have to go with Lorenz von Arabien, but all of them are building a solid trip to an instant modern classic album. For me this album doesn't sound sound like stoner rock, desert rock or any other overused labels. It is more then that is larger then them, know that is out there. Don't forget that Triptonus album is available on CD and vinyl here.
Until next time, put the needle on the record when the drum beat goes so wild.
