The most endangered Czech owl and at the same time the best Czech kraut/psychedelic rock band Sýček will fly to the stages again after a long rest. And Punctum will invite a special guest from Poland – Javva – to perform in the Žižkov nest of alternative culture.
Javva could be called, without exaggeration, a supergroup of the Polish alternative. The list of all the projects and bands that Javva members are or were part of would be several pages long. The projects cut across all genres, such as experimental techno T’ien Lai, space synthwave Xenon, psychedelic rock collective Alameda and newest member Maciej Moretti Moruś appeared in many jazz projects, also in the line-up of post-black metal Thaw.
In addition to a slightly cynical worldview, this diverse mix of musicians brings together a love of psychedelic rock. But on the only album Balance of Decay, they show that they definitely do not intend to give up frequent trips far beyond this box.
Which, of course, doesn’t detract from their accessibility, as Robert Miklos wrote in Everything “Is Noise” … if you look for easily digestible, captivating, eclectic, energetic and progressive songs, it’s hard to find a better place … “
Even the South Bohemian Sýček has “only” released their debut – I – but they were immediately nominated for the Vinyl Award and included in the TOP10 Czech records for 2017 of the international magazine Beehype. Their krautrock challenge will put not only fans of dirty guitarists into a trance, and a similarly intense and straightforward psychedelic experience is truly unique on the Czech scene.
