Acid Floriani - Underground Strikes Back (2011)

Acid Floriani is a band from Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. Yes, that's Russia. This is their debut full lenght album after releasing an EP in 2010.

The music here is an instrumental blend of space rock and post rock/shoegaze. More like shoegaze post rock in my view. The sound is harsh and industrial like the factories in Krasnoyarsk. But there are also a lot of organic warmth in their music. The sound is excellent though and don't think this Siberia location means lo-fi and third rate product. The sound quality is on par with the Western world standard.

The overall quality of the music is good. It is a bit too one dimentional for my liking though and not spacy enough. But it is a good post rock/shoegaze album which should appeal to both space and post rock fans.
