3.5 greatNick Butler EMERITUS | February 4th 12

Avant-folk that achieves its weirdness simply be being absolutely all over the place. Take them minute-by-minute and there's nothing all that odd about what they do, but the breadth of their influences and their aims is seriously impressive. Some parts have a Comus-esque creepiness to them, some parts have Kaizer's Orchestra's lunatic sense of humour and appreciation of the absurd, some of it is stoic and driving in a way that's reminiscent of Woven Hand, and some of it sounds like they're trying to play jazz. I don't speak Russian, so naturally I can't understand a word of the lyrics, but I find it hard to imagine that they deal with anything serious, and if they do, I'm glad I can't understand them. Better to treat .;0 for what it seems at first - utterly bonkers, and a hell of a lot of fun.

Their lyrics are very abstract. It's a crazy game of words, sounds and syllables, but the soul is incredibly touching. No doubt this is the best Russian band.
