years after "Todas Las Últimas Cosas", NOVY SVET are back with a
conceptual album – an epitaph, really – using mostly analogue radio
frequencies, sampled from an old kitchen wireless shortly before the
Austrian broadcasters went fully digital.
Out of those sonic remnants of the past, NS distilled ten beautifully sad, urgent and heavy requiems commemorating the end of an era and paying a last tribute to a modus operandi that has always been at the heart of the band's work.
Warm, muffled lo-fi emoscapes, glitched-out trap beats and the unmistakable Spanish vocal lament of J.W. create such an overwhelmingly dreamy ambience that it feels like floating through fuzzy halos and foggy flares, adrift along the passing memories of a long forgotten summer, the ghostly shadows of something that won't be again... and that maybe never was.
Pushing NOVY SVET to the next level, this album is definitely the most emotional to date and the perfect soundtrack for those desperately longing.
