Krampus used to be busy with St. Nicholas during December. But soon after St. Nicholas began to wear shiny red and white costume, he was no longer needed.
He took long time to figure out why it happened, why he was abandoned. On the other hand, he could spend more time playing with old fellows in the mountains, and noticed what is most pleasant in his life.



Beautiful limited edition CD in a hand-numbered run of only 123 numbered copies, packaged in crazy/hairy fake fur pockets complete with wraparound hand printed/silkscreened art stock masks:
Juppala Kaapio is the duo of amazing Japanese drone cosmonaut Hitoshi Kojo and his partner Carole who make celestial/endless folk/drone environments with a dizzy edge-of-the-abyss appeal that feels beamed from the top of the Swiss mountains.
Rewound Groves takes as its inspiration and cover design the Northern European folk/cult of the Krampus, a beast that was supposed to punish bad children for Santa on the run-up to Christmas.
The music matches the theme of ancient psychedelic ritual with a series of environs populated by strings that part like smoke, the kind of celestial shortwave confusion that could almost be Jacques Brodier, Coil-style Solstice drones and the sound of wordless vocals calling down the heavens.
Somewhere between the heavenly music of Taj Mahal Travellers, the occult Industrial actions of Organum and the haunted landscapes of Andrew Chalk/Ora et al, this is another dazzling side from Kojo and co and one of the great endlessly deep listens of the year.
