Znayesh Yak? Rozkazhy

WOW. Perfectly poised, enduringly mysterious deep-space folk/art-song from singular Ukrainian artist Svitlana Nianio - seriously, when all's said and done, can you even imagine music more beautiful than this?! 

It's the first vinyl edition of 1996's Znayesh Yak? Rozkazhy, a suite of eight songs which originally occupied one side of a privately distributed cassette made in 1996 by Nianio and her collaborator Oleksandr Yurchenko (a key figure in the so-called Novaya Scena, a loose collective of DIY musicians which emerged in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse and sought to channel both the sounds of the West and Ukrainian tradition.)

Nianio and Yurchenko recorded in an abandoned Kiev park, with hammered dulcimer drones and contrapuntal minimalist keyboard lines providing the mise en scène Nianio's for heart-stopping, otherworldly vocals...Ach, that voice, those melodies, it's just... have a listen! Perhaps this is blue-Monday-talking, but dunno, it's feel like we're in the presence of the divine.

LP edition of 500, reverse board printed sleeve with bi-lingual printed insert and, in case it wasn't obvious, highest possible recommendation.
