Kristen – The Secret Map


Kristen are the long runners on the Polish rock scene. 17 years with no changes in the original three-strong lineup and still going strong. And their new album, The Secret Map, just dropped on September 30. The album sees the group enhancing their trademark sound that walks the fine line between frenetic kraut/noise rock and melancholic indie rock ballads. Compared to the groups previous efforts, The Secret Map might be their most experimental work to date, preferring the slowly ascending, free roaming echoing rock semi-improvisations somewhere between The Dead C and Tarentel. However, there are still energetic, funky freakouts like “Music Will Soothe Me” to shake you out of the murky, psychedelic atmosphere.
