Kohoutek's second

studio album and second vinyl pressing, Lossless Loss, was officially released last night, and we have them in our hands. Recorded two years ago in Virginia at Monkeyclaus Studio, and completed in May

2008, we finally found a wonde

rful and supportive home in Prophase Records (who also releases Yahowha 13, Acid Mothers Temple, Plastic Crimewave Sound, and soon, the debut of VA's own Dark Sea Dream).

Lossless Loss

Lossless Loss, the second studio album from Mid-Atlantic improv collective Kohoutek, covers most of the dynamic stylistic range Kohoutek is known for: abstract and textural sound, atmospheric rock, harsh noise freakouts, clattering percussion, guitar heroics, and alien electronics congealing to form a multihued psychedelic extravaganza. Recorded deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in September 2007, the five members embarked on a psilocybic twilight journey, and this 44-minute aural excursion is the result. No overdubs and minimal editing create an experience as close as possible to a Kohoutek performance. With longtime core members Scott Verrastro (percussion, flute), Craig Garrett (bass) and Scott Allison (electronics) augmented by Vic Salazar (electric guitar) and Damian Languell (vocals, harmonica, clarinet, didgeridoo, Space Echo), Kohoutek forge their own path in the improv universe, and Lossless Loss is another burning fragment of this fleeting sonic comet.
