JVT0018 (Jvtlandt 2017)




Tandaapushi is an electric trio: Keys and a steady rhythm section made of electric bass and drums. While still playing melodies and grooves, they developed an obsession for getting any musical idea emptied by mean of repetitition. They play long and relentless music made of dark tones, industrial atmosphere, but still in search of a small light at the other side of the tunnel: Sisyphus looking for his redemption. Tandaapushi is primitive, sometimes massive, but not without a clear idea and a bunch of musical thoughts. It is also unclassifiable, trance inducing, heavy and on the edge. In other words, Tandaapushi creates "super- and sub-sonic textures for introspective imagery and meditative journeying” (Boston Hassle).

The late, great Aquarius Records chose Tandaapushi’s debut album “Fire Disposal” (2015) as “Album of the Week” and commented: “Their music here is "mostly improvised" - but not, like, JAZZ, not unless your idea of jazz is the Dead C and Supersilent jamming together, having switched up instruments perhaps. Or you gotta imagine The Necks as produced by Pumice, something like that. Perhaps Circle or Cave running wild in the INA-GRM studio?”

On “Borromean Rings”, their second album, Tandaapushi further develops their repetition based improvisation resulting in more finely crafted pulsating din. But there’s also something new, something more somber and austere. A different energy has appeared, adding a darkened misty atmosphere to several pieces.
