Rito - Rito [Gustaff Records Promo]

Soon to be released via the Polish imprint Gustaff Records is Rito's self-titled album "Rito in which the collective's four core members Piotr Pawlak, Michal Gos, Jacek Stromski and Kuba Staruszkiewicz present a bunch of five brand new tunes spanning a playtime of roughly 45 minutes. Relying on and referring to trance-inducing structures we see the band creating their unique sound with an array of three drum kits plus prepared guitar, samples and computational devices, starting with "Ni Ne Scias" , a fascinating tune opening with a short intro sequence reminiscing of late 90s releases on the legendary Heimelektro Ulm Tonquellen-label, before evolving into a full on, guitar-led Latin swinger with a bit of a Cocktail / Easy Listening / Tropicalia-infused approach and bringing forth a surprising, plot-twisting and heavily dubbed out breakdown after roughly 4 minutes in whereas the follow up "Gos" seemingly aims at an audience well familiar with bleepy Ambient and Post-PostRock structures whilst "Urbo" caters more of a brooding, isolationist DesertRock-attitude and therefore can be referred to as the most outstanding tune on this album. Furthermore "Blua" caters a menu of carefully layered Ambient-/ Deep Listening-strings and solemn, yet tribalistic percussion bits and several Field Recordings and found sounds to a calming effect before the final cut "Fino" not only comes close to the 15 minutes mark but continues on an unsettling, ever culminating DesertRock tip, announcing the arrival of evil forces and subsurface hordes of unseen powers, ready to rampage and devastate earth until the only remains of a former civilized world are turned to dust. Powerful, this!
