Italy's kariti signs to Lay Bare Recordings to release new album Dheghom. It'll be out in February 2nd, 2024. 

Hearing the voice of ekaterina from карити (kariti) made an instant connection with my heart and my skin. It was hard not to engage with her captivating blend of powerful vocals, engaging melodies, and evocative poems. kariti’s mix of intimate, atmosferic mournful ‘ambient folk songs with crisp sounding instruments and eerie harmonies creates a unique and emotional experience.

The impact of kariti’s voice is evident, draws you as a listener into it and makes it easy to connect with the depth of her music and words. kariti's resonant vocal tone adds a distinctive and profound quality to her music. It's fascinating how a singer's voice can shape the emotional experience of a song.

Lay Bare Recordings is beyond thrilled to welcome kariti to the label and to collaborate on releasing her upcoming album Dheghom on 2.2.24. Incredibly exciting to walk the path of this rich and diverse musical experience together.

As follow up of the album High Protein (2020) Rrrags comes up with a new album. A double album that is! 

After the success of High Protein RRRAGS took the time to follow up on their inner thoughts and sentiments hence they steered into a more dark psych direction. They took the time to experiment with just about all of their personal influences, resulting in a pretty versatile double album called Mundi. What stands out most about this album is the diversity of influences: Wiped is pure fuzzed-up Hendrix; Heart Of The Hive is uptempo garage rock and turns into stoner/doom; Light Up The Room is Stooges on downers; Slavic Heat is Celtic Frost in space; Final Word is lush psych pop in the Ty Segall vein; Walkers and It Feeds each have a motorik/space instrumental section that runs somewhere between Neu! and Hawkwind; Ararat and Galactic Strut are pure stoner/space jams.

MUNDI is heavier and spacier than RRRAGS previous work, while still familiar influences can be heard.

‘Heavy Psych Rock’ for fans of King Gizz & Ty Segall

LIMITED TO 250x Heavy weight black vinyl in gatefold
