KSAS Short Info

What comes out when you are fascinated by Knurl and The
Lovelities, Yahowa 13, George Michael, Spiritualized and Beyonce
at the same time? Something weird – that's for sure. KSAS, also
known as Karol Schwarz All Stars, is such a formation, making it
difficult to pigeon-hole. They come from Gdansk in Poland – which
automatically serves as a troublesome place to launch a
successful worldwide music career – so alternatively they can
always try out another job opportunities this region offers, like
becoming a fisherman, a sailor or a professional Nobel Peace Prize
Laureate.

Nevertheless, KSAS keep on creating their unique sounds – even
though it is against all logic. On 14th Dec 2013 they released their
brand new album entitled Hi, Mom!, which refers to the classic
Brian De Palma black comedy starring Robert DeNiro. Although
the band members claim that this is the album nobody really
waited for (maybe apart from their concerned mothers), the LP
contains a lot of unexpected gems. First of all, there's the
enchanting, hypnotizing song One Time sang beautifully by the
incredibly talented Polish vocalist and composer Joanna Kuźma. In
the other songs we've got walls of space-rock / shoegaze guitars,
distortions, delays, choruses that break your heart, psychedelic
sounds.

Each of the vocalists takes the listener on a journey to the depth of
their soul. Each of the musicians create a magical atmosphere.
Such pieces as Cudy 1, Cudy 2 or Live in Aurigeno, present the
highest standards of improvisation which is complemented by an
Indian sitar. Hi, Mom! lets the listener experience real beauty and
meditative silence but also provides with songs that culminate in a
way that tears out your heart and soul and gets you on a verge of
emotional breakdown, like Letter To... or gives you creeps and
causes anxiety like the moving Neurotic (also sang by the fantastic
Joanna Kuźma).
