LOTTO – Ask the DustPosted: January 21, 2015
Some mighty intruging, semi-improvised instrumental rock music from the Polish band LOTTO. The cover might suggest some arid, stripped-back moods and it’s true. Ask the Dust doesn’t adhere to simple categorizations, it jumps between the atmospheric, slow-paced experimental jazz rock a’la The Necks to moments of high energy unhinged free improvisation and droning deconstructions of post-rock reduced to single licks of guitars or the residues of guitar feedback hanging in mid-air like particles of dust on a hot summer day. Buy the LP from Lado ABC if you dig.
