Seledyn- Zimy

November 27, 2008

Sometimes friend requests pay off for bands- Seledyn sent me one and I have to say that when I first saw that they are from Poland and with the tag of soul I didn’t quite know what to expect. I always give a band a listen though and what I heard was quite unexpected…soul doesn’t quiet cover it since there is such a great post rock instrumental ambient vibe to add to it!

It appears to be either a brother/sister or husband/wife duo of Monika Chroscielewska and Michal Chroscielewski along with guest musicians – Krzysztof Czara, Krzysztof Malinowski, Leszek Kozlowski.  Monika does the main vocals but there are quite a few tunes that are purely instrumental- and damn good they are.   The Mind Is Playing Tricks is probably the standout for me with the rhythm changes but Szron and Piano Girl show off Monika’s voice while Astrodroid, Soaked and Marzec are good on the instrumental side.

Best of all you can download their album Zimy for free! There is a link on their MySpace page or you can head here for it.  Hope to hear more from these guys soon.

Szron- rather plain visually but good voice and damn cute to boot!

Details from one of their bulletins about the Lp:
