Kairon; IRSE! - Ruination album review
From Finland, already the most wildly inventive psychedelic rock album of 2017
Such is the incredibly self‑consuming world of modern music that even at its fringes, one is invariably drawn into a game of Spot The Influence. That remains true here, but Kairon; IRSE! are in no way guilty of a multi-genre cut’n’paste job. Ruination is a dazzling exercise in cross-pollination, but conceived and executed in such a way that it brims with originality. At their core, these are psychedelic rock excursions, imbued with old school prog sensibilities, but also mindful of more timely musical developments.
