WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

Zamknęły się oczy ziemi isn’t an album that just sits peacefully in the background. From the very first moments, it’s a fully enveloping experience that shapes the environment of its listener. It’s as though it’s not of this time, not of this world. Ornate patterns are overtaken by shadows, and within those shadows are hints of past generations. Kuba Ziołek has cited Albert Ayler, Moondog, and Pharaoh Sanders as influences for what will apparently be his last album as Stara Rzeka. The influences of those giants can be found deep beneath the layers of atmospheric drone and Fahey-esque guitars. Zamknęły się oczy ziemi shares an expansiveness in common with Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s best work but where Godspeed often travels to a cold dead place, there’s a bit a warmth within Stara Rzeka’s songs.
