As I said several times before, I receive demos from various bedroom noise projects on a regular basis, and for the most part they're just plain boring. But this time, while checking my old mail, I found a message from a female-fronted project from Western Ukraine that promised to be "not the next boring typical drone-ambient-bla-bla-bla". Well, let's see...

"Dibrowa is a pagan priests settlement, which was seized by King Danylo Halytsky to present it to his son Lev. Now it is the territory of the forgotten temples of Znesinnia Park.
This is a Project by Liana Mytsko from Lviv. The history of the city and its dark abandoned corners diluted with the noise of experimental music"

 "Lvivchumamiskrembudmekhanizatsiya 1761" is a concept album inspired by the urban exploration of those "dark abandoned corners", and was said to guarantee a good trip, even without "chemistry":

"In Lviv, at 251 Zelena Street, almost out of the city, surrounded by garbage, on the territory of the Lvivmiskrembudmekhanizatsiya Enterprise, there is an abandoned plague cemetery of the 1761 year with the figure of Jesus Christ the Sorrowful standing on the top of the column.
Currently, at this address are illegal scrapyard of Electronbutprylad Plant, Concern Electron, Otex Ltd, restaurant" Under the Cherry ", "Autosvit " Store, and gravestone manufacture.
And if these Stations of the Cross in forgotten industrial place scares you, remember:
"It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the all.
From me did the all come forth, and unto me did the all extend. Split a piece of wood,
and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there." (Gospel of Thomas 1:77)
This is the temple that we deserve"
