Fulldozer Records proudly present the vinyl version of the last album by Theodor Bastard, one of the most mysterious and mythical bands from Russia. The album name is a Latin transliteration of the Russian word for branches bearing in mind the branches of the World tree which supports the heavens, connecting the heavens, the terrestrial world, and the underworld. It's music combines elements of world music, neofolk, dark wave and trip hop. The hallmark of the album is female vocal by lead singer Yana Veva, her unique voice filled by glory and in the same time by meditative serenity and mild warmth. The musicians use classic instruments as well as electronic instruments and numerous ethnic instruments. Theodor Bastard release their albums not so often, working for months in various recording studios in several cities and countries, searching for the best sound and arrangements. The work on this album took three years with plenty of musicians taking part in it. Continuing the theme of wanderings, which was the basic idea of the previous album Oikoumene, Theodor Bastard take their listeners from hot south to the fairy northern lights. 'We travel to the North of Russia every year,' - says the band leader Fedor Svolotch. - 'Now it's time for us to turn to our culture, our country and our roots. There are our places of power, the places where stones and winds are talking to us. A new album is a song of the northern harsh nature'. A peculiar combination of the archaic percussions and folk instruments was used during the recording. Playing unusual ethnic instruments is still an important part of Theodor Bastard creative process. Russian horn, traditional Mongol violin morin khuur, ritual tibetian horn dunchen, ancient Russian gusli, cajon, jew's harp, dulcimer (string instrument like zither) - this is just a short list of musical miracles of the album. Many musicians were engaged in creating this sound kaleidoscope. That was a serious and laborious work. String instruments bring deep melodism and dramatism. There are morin khuur by Yana Veva, violin by Gulya Naumova and cello by Natalia Nazarova. They harmoniously strung on ritual rhythms of drums and percussions by Kirill Serov. Chamber choir Lauda adds ancient masculinity to the album sound, as well as an outstanding vocalist Alexander Platonov (Ensemble of Ancient Peasant Music). A magic sound of gusli by Olga Glazova, harp and cimbalom by multi-instrumentalist Philip Barsky decorate some songs, and great vocals by Buryat singer Namgar give a special atmosphere of northern dawn to one of the songs of the album.

THEODOR BASTARD. OIKOUMENE - Theo Records, 2012
Theodor Bastard - OikoumeneNew album of Theodor Bastard. The title refers to an ancient Greek notion, designating the inhabited or "civilized" sections of our planet, in other words those where mankind has left its mark - for better or worse. That global sweep is certainly echoed in the list of contributors, since our Russian artists are joined here by representatives of British, Zulu, Indian, and French-African traditions. Consequently, the list of instruments employed - and their home nations - is even longer. >>

IIRON is a powerful, well executed electronic rock record, with just a dash a humour to keep it from becoming pompous, as so much of that kind of music can be sometimes. >>
