*150 copies limited edition. 2023 stock* Tomáš Niesner started his guitar player path long while ago when he co-formed noise rock band Unna. Loud noise quartet stir the waters of little czech avant rock pond with music written directly to the precomposed beat of drummer Jakub Šimanský. Loud shows played all around Czech Republic took its toll and and by 2017 they turned down the DB to death low. The band was over. Jakub Šimanský was living in their former practice room in Přerov, playing acoustic guitar daily and he was heavily inspired by american primitive guitar.
Tomáš Niesner moved to Brno. He formed another part-time band called Vlněna and started working at Bastl Instruments, a company focused on home made synths and diy instruments. He got into the spirit of early electronic minimal music and debuted with great collection of ambient drones on album called Silencia (released by ACR, London, 2019). The same year, his pal Jakub Šimanský grew tired of playing solo shows and invited Niesner to join him on his guitar ventures. Back then Šimanský has already shook off the strict sound of american primitive and started feeding in inspirations from czech folk traditions (among many others). Niesner's second guitar was welcomed addition and duo Šimanský - Niesner soon after debuted with acclaimed album “Tance neznámé”. The duo played tenths of shows and in the meanwhile they worked on their second album which is due late 2021.
With busy schedule on, Niesner still found time to compose and homerecord 8 delightful tracks for his another solo record called “Aurora”. To my surprise, they were as far away from his debut as possible, all acoustic and only digital contributions are field recordings. “Aurora” finds its place somewhere between british early folk music and Robbie Basho's long epics, all that with massive Niesner's signature handwriting stamp.
