Boomkat Product Review:
Lima’s Buh Records turn attention from South America to Czech Republic ensemble Gurun Gurun for a lokey lysergic session of frayed small sound enigma comparable with a tripped out Craig Tattersall jam with Ekin Fil
‘Uzu Oto’ is the first new Gurun Gurun release since 2015, and finds the four-piece band of Jára Tarnovski, Ondřej Ježek, Tomáš Knoflíček and Federsel joined by Flau’s Cuushe in especially frayed and free forms across 41 minutes of smushed dream-pop riddled with mycelial small sounds. It’s a proper maze of a record, following a thread of psychoactive folk and microscopic electronic logic thru five parts that wheeze and and interrelate with a richly organic, holistic quality.
Their dream/mare sequence starts out tentatively on the cusp of folk horror darkness with ‘Komorebi’ and soon weaves in the fragile vocals of Cuushe in the standout 18 minute wonder ‘Toumeiningen’, where their declension of energies seeps out in uncoiled, slithering music box melody and Cuushe’s whimpers into the dankness, the ground ever unsettled and shifting beneath its feet. ‘Kiikii’ follows into scenes of reverberant domestic rustle from an alien living room, before they gel around more tangible melodic strokes in ‘Otamatone’, and Japanese small sound specialist Asuna chemise in on the more coarsely textured transition to theremin-like tons and curtains with ‘Uzu’.
