Kekri, also spelled Keyri, or Käyri,  in ancient Finnish religion a feast day marking the end of the agricultural season that also coincided with the time when the cattle were taken in from pasture and settled for a winter’s stay in the barn. Kekri originally fell on Michaelmas, September 29, but was later shifted to November 1, All Saints’ Day. In the old system of reckoning time, Kekri was a critical period between the old and new years when the ancestor spirits came to visit their former homes. The living accordingly held feasts honouring the dead. Food and drink were left for the spirits, the sauna was heated, and the dead were referred to as “holy men.” The feast was generally restricted to the members of the family, but in some areas the occasion was also marked by the common sacrifice of a sheep by the men of the entire village.

PRESENT
is a Los Angeles based quartet performing heavy experimental music since 2012. Their atonal compositions abandon guitars and lyrical form in favor the melodic dissonances of female sax, synthesizer, and vocals seated atop hectic percussive intensity. Non-traditional linear song gives way to free form passages, often in collaboration with other artists.The tone of their music invokes influences of 20th Century Classical, Black Metal, Japanese underground, Anarcho Punk, outsider art and free jazz. Live shows are often accompanied by performance art, live video, and improvised noise.
Stuff of Life recorded September 2014 at Cal Tech & and Women of Crenshaw, Los Angeles.
Produced by Henry MacDonald

Federsel/Freudl: PEACOCK KING



Noise, samba, psychedelic and Czech brass music fragments, easy listening, lounge and hypnagogic, free rock and lysergic jazz.
During hiatus of their home group B4 long-time collaborators Federsel and Freudl met for the second time this year for an impromptu session. While previous record New Rock was kind of sober and pure sounding, the new album Peacock King was dedicated to cleansing bath of cacophonous sound, punctuated here and there with twisted bits of samba or 90’s lounge. To achieve the highest cacophony levels the duo invited several guests on brass instruments. Federsel and Freudl, in their side projects allow to go much farther than their home group, which is probably the only krautrock band in Czech Republic. The album is so fully rexhibits their dry and dekadent sense of humor. Peacock King is a musical invocation of demons done by the silliest sounds, stuttering rhythms and haunted melodies.
The album is a continuation of a series of earlier experiments pairs with different forms of psychedelic music using absurdly dense and unbearably intense flow of music and sound data. Peacock King is a scrum musical cues, often with the potential prettiness feeding on each other, producing a nervy sound mass, interrupted here and there with wacky easy listening. Soundtrack to our disordered lives, our fragmented world.
