Album

Kluster (2002)

The accordion, panned and swirled through effects, goads a series of Eastern European rhythms into a seething Transylvanian fantasy...voices evoke souls in torment; and Kosminen's rhythmic samples conjure up infernal frying and boiling, or maybe a caveful of snoozing monsters...The accordion devours the world... The Wire
