GDEVA "Bubbles,bubbles..." 2007 (Sankt-Peterburg)
Instrumental psychedelic power-trio from my city S-Pb.(but I'm still likes call it Leningrad:))))
Album including five live and deep improvizations...
"...Known among local instrumental music lovers for a great deal of improvisation in their live shows, the concept behind the band is never make the same composition twice and try to do something different every time the trio get together. Their first recording jams displayed an obvious tendency to create rather moody material which stands on the sharpest edge of obscurity or epic dazzle. For a band that's only been together a short time, psyche rockers GDEVA are certainly versed! On its debut release, the band tries to explore prog-rock territories while routing the map of late-60s and early-70s psychodelia by using decrepit vintage musical equipment. Within these five jams – all recorded live-in-the-studio with no overdubs in two days – you'll find the charms. Steady bass and drums set the flow, while the guitarist (or two guitarists) rocks the improvisational waves in more gentle and intellectual manner. The players don’t try to show what they know and the dynamics are controlled carefully – they really know how to listen. Their influence may be apparent, but there’s a pleasing loose, space, and organic flow to the compositions. This young band could easily turn into one of the greatest space-kraut-prog-psyche outfits you’ve probably never heard of! "(by IGOR GORELY of R.A.I.G. Records, Summer 2007)
