Ciolkowska: Avtomat Proshlogo

Ciolkowska hail from Saint Petersburg, Russia and have been around since 2012. I first became familiar with the band upon reviewing their 2016 release titled Tsiolkovskaya Showed Her Face. Fast forward to 2018 and their album titled Avtomat Proshlogo. Translated in English it means cause and effect, in other words karma.

The band has continued their mind expansive, head trippy sound, expanding on their psychedelic infused space rock. This is a real head trip with the album proper beginning with the second track “Zemlya”, the first being only nineteen seconds long. An ethereal backdrop of wordless backing vocals and gentle guitar leads to some heavier distortion. The gently sweeping notes and vocals had me almost immediately. You cannot help but be reeled in by the band’s spacey builds and intoxicating textures. On the next two tracks, “Okolo Togo” and “Delu Venec”, the use of trumpet adds more spacey textures, and the guitar work is especially creative, a true mind bending experience. With “Potolok, Pro Tyurmu Vnutri” the riffs are heavier creating greater intensity and the lead vocals more aggressive while more excellent guitar can be heard on “Na Vysote Derevev”, where the band exploring trippier jams.

Avtomat Proshlogo is an excellent work which I found totally addictive. As such, I highly recommended it to all fans of psychedelic and space rock.

An Addicted Label release.
