Russian kosmische pop collective Gnoomes to release new album MU! plus UK tour calling Liverpool, Getintothis’ Peter Guy revels in their potent kraut techno.
Gnoomes, the Russian outfit who blend kraut techno and kosmische pop, are back with a new album and UK tour.
MU! is the third Gnoomes album for Rocket Recordings which sees the band expanded to a four-piece and return to the UK for a tour calling Jacaranda Records Phase One for Deep Cuts on Friday June 7.
Gnoomes will be supported by Liverpool progressive pop band RongoRongo who are also readying their new album.
“I put all my energy and life force into this record,” says Sasha Piankov of Gnoomes.
“For me personally it’s a spiritual record. Although any sonic warbles of new age blandness couldn’t be further from the end results here. This is a cleansing record, no doubt, but one that washes over you with both brutal force and deft subtleness.”
- Gnoomes and RongoRongo play Deep Cuts at Phase One on Friday June 7 – tickets here. Full line up to be announced.
