about

HUBRIS is the fourth album from the New York based songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Kristo Rodzevski. The album is a natural continuation from his previous free jazz/pop infused work, but includes a more hard-edged, rock sound.

Rodzevski works with his usual troupe of notable musicians from New York's avant and experimental music scene. His abrasive guitar chords provide an ominous foundation over which vulnerable vocals and deelply personal lyrics are intertwined with the scintillating, architectural electronics of Ikue Mori (DNA, Phantom Orchard), the forward driving drums of Tomas Fujiwara (Thumbscrew, Triple Trouble), the phantasmagorical sound of Mary Halvorson (Code Girl), and the grounding, iconoclastic bass of Bill Laswell. Richly produced to craft a singular landscape of sound by Laswell, it achieves a blended and layered effect while still allowing the songs space to breathe.

Acerbic and provocative, HUBRIS is a sonic mural, a turning, folding chimera with themes of distorted intimacy, unconscious fantasy, mortality, loss and the realities of the immigrant experience. This is life in it's unflinching wholeness - messy, sad, exhuberant and joyous.
