10000 RUSSOS

 More from this Band



Portuguese experimental trio 10 000 Russos are gearing up for the
release of their fifth album 'Superinertia', which is due out
September 10th on Fuzz Club Records.
Following on from 2019's 'Kompromat' LP and tour dates around
the UK, Europe and Mexico in support, the Porto-based band
describe 'Superinertia' as a record addressing the "state of inertia
that humans live in the West nowadays. It isn't a record about the
past or future. It's about now." For all that 'Superinertia' might
take aim at a world without motion, however, the same cannot be
said of 10 000 Russos themselves. On the one hand, since their
2013 debut LP and the three that have followed on Fuzz Club since
(2015's self-titled, 2017's 'Distress Distress' and 'Kompromat'), 10
000 Russos' music has always been about as kinetic as it gets: a
truly unrelenting and motorik sonic force. On the other hand,
'Superinertia' also sees the band itself move into whole new
musical territories - aided especially by the recent addition of
synth player Nils Meisel to the line-up (who replaces former bassist
André Couto.) "The synths really opened up the sound of the band
and gave more routes for the music to journey down. The most
important thing on this album was to not repeat ourselves. A new
arc in our sound is coming to life", drummer and vocalist Joao
Pimenta explains. On said arc, the Russos sound is expanded to
include moments that invoke Ry Cooder's 'Paris, Texas' soundtrack
('Mexicali/Calexico'), dancey outbursts that transport you to the
90s Summer of Love ('Super Inertia'), the closest thing Russos
have ever done to a pop song ('A House Full of Garbage') and even
a touch of banjo (albeit one that sounds like a country band on
amphetamines playing over a feedback-blasted Stooges beat.)
