ZDRASTVOOTIE - zdrastvootie LP, Holy Mountain




“A few years ago Santa Cruz avant-rock group Zdrastvootie decided to ditch their vocalist and concentrate on the unique interplay they had begun to achieve with two guitars and drums. This new configuration recorded an album of material that was eventually scrapped because their sound had morphed into something different by the time everything was ready to go. Zdrastvootie are currently a very focused entity, with increasingly complex songs a la King Crimson, Hampton Grease Band or Doc at the Radar Station-era Magic Band. While they have recently added a bassist, and guitar-player Drew Adams has begun to sing, Zdrastvootie still orbits this zone and will continue to until you are very aware that they practice all the time. Here’s to going somewhere.”
