Recenzja EP – Skug

„Soeben ist die neue 4-Song-EP von Trupa Trupa erschienen. Erst im September 2019 hatte das Danziger Quartett sein fünftes Album »Of The Sun« veröffentlicht. Diesmal breiten sich die psychedelischen Atmosphären weitaus weniger beatbetont rockig als auf Album-Tracks wie »Longing« aus. Was ja tendenziell in Richtung Unendlichkeit weist, wird in maximal vierminütigen Songs konzentriert: mal meditativ repetitiv, mal krautrockig explorativ. Dafür die Genrehülse »Post Rock« zu bemühen, wäre Unsinn. Schöpft diese Musik ihre Inspirationen doch aus bis zu 45 Jahre alten Strömungen. »Fitzcarraldo« kann als eine aus der Zeit gefallene Hommage an die Stimmungen, die Werner Herzogs Soundtüftler Popol Vuh erzeugten, gehört werden. »Invisible Door« lenkt die Wahrnehmung zwar nicht »auf die andere Seite«; aber mit Rafał Wojczals Stimme weht ein Hauch von Neil Young (ca. 1974) den winterlichen Restlurch hinfort. Freut euch, der Frühling hat im Hier und Jetzt begonnen.”

Recenzja EP – No-Wave

Trupa Trupa are one of the most earnest and hard-working bands currently working. It’s no wonder frontman Grzegorz Kwiatkowski is an avowed Werner Herzog fan; after all, he’s heading a band who are practicing acolytes of the German director’s artistic aspirationalism. Dalej Recenzja EP – No-Wave

Recenzja EP – Benzine magazyn

Le nouveau EP des post rockers polonais de Trupa Trupa inspiré notamment par Werner Herzog et Joseph Konrad s’écoutera de préférence sous un couché de soleil toxique et une lune psychotrope.

Les polonais de Trupa Trupa peuvent s’enorgueillir d’avoir été signés sur des labels prestigieux comme Ici d’Ailleurs (France), Sub Pop (USA) ou récemment Glitterbeat (Allemagne). A l’image de ce passage sur ces quelques labels, leur musique évolue au gré des albums. Dalej Recenzja EP – Benzine magazyn

David Fricke o EP – SiriusXM

I want to play something brand new – this is a group that I’ve featured on the show a number of times. They have a new EP, they are from Gdansk, Poland. Trupa Trupa – I’ve described them as a contemporary edition of Radiohead in some ways, very progressive, also very political. They come from a country that has been going through many of the same issues of polarity and racism and just people not coming together the way they should and this is a band that speaks out about it very eloquently and profoundly. This is Trupa Trupa, the EP is called ‘I’ll Find’. It’s out this week and this is the opening track “End of the line”.

Full Moon Magazine / EP

Trupa Trupa = postpunk, psychedelie, posthardcore, shoegaze, no wave a víc. Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, Tomek Pawluczuk, Wojtek Juchniewicz, Rafal Wojczal, první kapela z někdejšího východního bloku podepsaná legendárními Sub Pop Records, pod kterými vydali loňskou řadovku Of the Sun. Na tu navazují také aktuálním EP nazvaným I’ll Find.

Minialbum, které dále upevňuje pověst kapely jako jednoho ze stále aktuálních a silných hlasů na globální psychedelické scéně, přináší čtveřici nových, kaleidoskopických songů, lyričtějších, než kdy dřív. Texty i atmosféra alba jsou inspirovány filmem Fitzcarraldo od kultovního režiséra Wernera Herzoga, stejně jako temnou knihou Heart of Darkness od Josepha Conrada (původním jménem Konrad Korzeniowski).

The Ongoing History of Protest Music – 40 Best Protest Albums of 2019

As we approach the end of 2019 it is now a good time to look back on some of the notable protest albums released during the year. The albums are listed alphabetical order. Hopefully, you’ll be introduced to some new socially conscious music.

The fifth album by the Polish alt-rock band taps into the historical trauma and genocide experienced by Polish Jews at the hands of Nazi Germany. It addresses Holocaust deniers and sadly the song’s anti-fascists sentiments still apply to the present.

The Ongoing History of Protest Music – A Month of Protest Music (February)

Here is a recap of some notable socially conscious music released during the month of February.

The latest tune by the Polish indie rock band is off their upcoming EP I’ll Find, due out March 6. The song also features a video directed by Jakub Żwirełło, which features imagery of building a snowman, then building it. According to Żwirełło, the visuals represent “the hard work it takes to build relationships, friendships and on a larger scale – local communities, which can be later destroyed abruptly and unexpectedly by tragic events like war.”

The band’s previous album Of The Sun was one of the best protest albums of 2019.

Recenzja EP – Louder Than War

Freistadt Gdańsk’s Trupa Trupa are back after their last LP Of The Sun, with a four track EP which is as good a way as any to fall headlong into their world. It’s possibly (possibly) the most hypnotising release to date, packing in a welter of feelings and impressions in four short, “simple” tracks. Dalej Recenzja EP – Louder Than War
