"Formed in London late 1997, Anglo-German four piece Karamasov released their eclectic debut the following year. Comprising a diverse collection of largely instrumental improvisations, On Arrival made for a deceptively assured debut. Drawing on influences of Kraut, Rock, Jazz and minimal Techno, Karamasov's compliment of electronics, samples and ancient analogs is lent an added warmth by the less predictable addition of live instruments such as cello and a knack for improvisation, augmented in no small part by classically trained percussionist Berit Immig. Benefiting from a more coherent production,the new album, Divorce you Loved Ones with Dignity is a more accessible collection than previous more esoteric releases. Their left-field take on pop veers at times toward the rarefied dancefloor occupied by Stereolab, Tarwater and ex-label mates Add n to (x), at others a gentle, affectionate nod to a past illuminated by the likes of Can et al will warm those possessed of an analog soul."
