*In process of stocking* "Every album from the band, whose core members currently reside in the UK and Israel, feels like an invitation into a space outside the mundane. When playing live, visuals from Danil Gertman, drawn and projected in real time, are an intrinsic part of their performance. Like those visuals’ movement from amorphous constellations of colour into concrete characters and landscapes, Staraya Derevnya swing from flurries of abstract folk sounds into propulsive, swampy grooves. It’s oneiric, but not in a way that is lulling or sleepy. Rather, Staraya Derevnya’s music is full of surreal associations and strange causalities that, like a dream, feel completely natural for as long as you’re immersed in them." - The Quietus
"Appears to have emerged out of something deep, timeless, and possibly mineral" – The Quietus
"A kind of psychedelic hypnosis which fully immerses you in this sound" – Louder than war
