Tuleje - Ciche Miejsca [Gusstaff Records]

Released via Gusstaff Records on November 18th, 2k22 is "Ciche Miejsca", the very first album outing by Polish trio Tuleje which sets out to conserve and interprete a set of eight traditional Folk songs from villages like Babiak, Osiek Wielki and Kramsk for a new - and probably previously unaware - audience in a well traditional manner based on vocals, double bass and drums only and therefore presenting a new aspect tackled by the label. Presenting a sonic ark ranging from raw and acoustic to dramatic, muscular and highly captivating in cuts like "Dziczka" to even heavily (Blues)Rock-leaning structures in "Witulka" whilst "Paproc" enters nebulous, mystical trails of shoegazing, Ritual Ambient-leaning enchantement and the second to last cut "Wisnia" serves a backing of fast-paced, yet surprisingly subdued and fever'ish drums and minimal guitars for a dynamic, touching vocal performance just to name a few. One for the explorative and well curious listern, this one is.
