2011 release. This is the debut album by this fantastic Budapest-based musician who'd previously only made this available as a privately-issued CD-R. From cuts that combine tranced-out rhythms the likes of which have rarely been witnessed since the Taj Mahal Travellers with tidal waves of Lee Ranaldo-esque guitar to others where minimal piano melodies are allowed to twist and shimmer like phantoms in the moonlight or where murky moodiness is angled into more threatening shapes, The Harmonian Blues feels like an album whose rich abundance of ideas is both all-encompassing and measured enough to retain some of that all-important mystery. Nothing is superfluous or outstays its welcome, and everything slides together organically yet never strays from the objective. On one hand, it's impressive for its purity and, on the other, the very fact it expresses so much via often minimal and simplistic means really cannot fail to pull the listener helplessly in. If Zsolt is exploring voids of his own making, which is precisely how things appear, then there are far less worthy currents one could allow themselves to be snagged by. Powerful, emotional and driven by seemingly near-mythical yet firmly intuitive forces, The Harmonian Blues commands to be listened to and, indeed, will reveal so much along the way. Fucking incredible.
