[News] YURT - Ege Artemis Yurtum (Reissue)

YURT - Ege Artemis Yurtum
Originally released digitally on 21st December 2009, EGE ARTEMIS YURTUM was the curious debut by Dublin based group YURT. This album laid an experimental foundation in the heavier end of the progressive music spectrum and captured the 3-piece in a raw and embryonic stage of their 13-year existence.

Heavy, odd and somehow deranged, YURT's psych-prog but still punk-ish musical approach in this debut was not meant nor destined to satisfy a wide variety of listeners. I'm guessing that one reason for creating such debut could be the band's need to express its sick appetite on creating perturbed and unsettling music that will sound appealing only a similarly 'disturbed' audience.

This 10th Anniversary Edition digipack CD includes a rebuild of the original artwork to include the wraparound “snaggletooth” design the way it was always intended, a very caring remaster of the original audio courtesy of James Plotkin, and a 12-page booklet with unnecessarily extensive liner notes and some archive images for your displeasure.

about YURT:
The sonic elders of YURT gathered at the dusk of 2006 with a criteria of conducting experiments in the broader field of progressive noise. On the occasion of winter solstice 2009 , a celebration of voluminous soundwaves entitled EGE ARTEMIS YURTUM was offered up to the legions of sonic guerillas, cerebral oscillators and other assorted hellspawn.

After a subsequent period in cryopreservation, there were rumours of a thaw and some manner of wretched behemoth arising from the miasma of silence. At the 2011 winter solstice, a construct was bestowed upon the terrestrial populus – ARCHIPELAGOG.

Again there was silence – a vacuum suggesting the will to remain a sonic footnote.

Ultimately, gestation is indeterminable in all matters pertaining to the sonic elders of YURT – There was no identifiable trajectory leading up to the announcement of YURT III – MOLLUSKKEPOKK in early 2016. As the sonic elders of YURT would volunteer by way of explanation…

” … while doing nothing is simply sloth, maintaining the facade of doing very little takes a lifetime to master… “.

The sonic elders of YURT have spoken.
