Andrey Kiritchenko Stuffed with/out[ ns51 / CD ]
With this new album Andrey continues to explore the music space that was build in his previous album True Delusion. This time he uses guitar, mouth harmonica, field recordings, objects and computer processing. Being influenced by (psycho) folk he creates warm “homemade” sound environment for the listener to follow. Hiss, insects, 3-4 notes guitar melodies, mellow drones and digital processing make every track a little story about stuffed animals.
