This is the 2nd release by Five-Storey ensemble, who came out of the group Rational Diet; a chamber rock/RIO-styled band from Belarus, who released 3 very well liked albums on the AltrOck label.
Rational Diet broke up with some of the musicians forming Archestra and some of the musicians ending up in Five-Storey Ensemble.
This is their 2nd release and it takes the chamber direction that they were heading on their 1st to the logical extreme; no longer 'chamber rock', but chamber music informed by chamber rock.
I thought this was really great and stunning. You like Aranis, Julverne, Michael Nyman, Rational Diet, Univers Zero, etc and you don't mind the fact that there are no drums here?? If so, this is your new favorite band! Highly recommended!
