Wszystko Co Stale Rozplywa Sie W Powietrzu / All That Is Solid Melts into Air

A 9 track experimental album (34m 45s) — released June 16th 2014 on Gusstaff Records

(the) Kurws formed in May 2008 as an unexpected result of a ping pong session. Since then they have pursued their own search, not so much in defined genres, but within the very foundations of rock, expression, and sound. It is a workshop where improvisation penetrates through composed material, a congealed form of the creation process. Armed with repetitions, recombinations, variations and contrasts, they frolic with memory and expectations. Post punk, krautrock, rock in opposition, funk, no wave - they present modes of playing, motives, and riffs we have heard time and time again in a totally different context, dissected from their original environment, placed side by side, used in a brand new manner, deconstructed and distilled.

Their debut album "Hole in the ghetto" was released in 2011 in Europe in a joint venture by Qulturap, Oficyna Biedota, Trująca Fala, and Blinded, and in the US by Bat Shit Records. The band has played numerous gigs throughout Europe and are faithful henchmen of DIY principles.

Kurws: Jakub Majchrzak (bass), Dawid A. Bargenda (drums), Hubert Kostkiewicz (guitar), Oskar Carls (saxophone, piano), Piotr Zabrodzki (synthesizer).

Wszystko co stałe rozpływa się w powietrzu // All that is solid melts into air special guests: Tomasz Duda (baritone saxophone) and Maurycy Idzikowski (trumpet) on Weltgeist, Ewa Kołecka (flute) on Zła Bajka.

Recorded by Piotr Semiras, Piotr Zabrodzki and Kurws in Warsaw and Wrocław, 2013. Additional field and home recordings by Kurws. Mixed by Piotr Zabrodzki at Contrabanda Music Studios. Mastered by John Greenham at Infrasonic Studio.

Shows in western Europe (Germany, Austria, Scandinavia, Benelux, UK..) are planed for autumn 2014.

Shades of Ex-Models, Captain Beefheart, and Weasel Walter bands. All instrumental, serious, but not pretentious, fun, but not silly. Basically, my favorite type of rock band - Bad Speller

Probably Poland’s most energetic rock band at the moment, they mix garage and punk music with NYC-born no wave. There is nothing monotonous or predictable about their sound. Along with guitar and drums, their unique sound is produced by a bass clarinet and a tenor saxophone. - - Filip Lech
