about

PYRITE – Katzengold oder Narrengold – öffnen mit ihrem Debutalbum eine wahre Schatzkiste an Sounds und Songs. Werfen mit musikalischen Ideen um sich. Der Hypnosound eines abenteuerlustigen Steve Reich, die freigespielte Lässigkeit von Tortoise treffen auf den vielstimmigen und multiinstrumentalen Charme der sechsköpfigen Band. Und das ergibt einen musikalischen Glückszustand, wie wir ihn nur von Stereolab kennen: Stimme als Instrument, Instrument als Storyteller – eng verwoben mit dem krautrockigen Beat gutgelaunter Can und Neu. Aus reinem Spaß an der Überraschung legen Pyrite wundertütengleich nach: Da wird ein Samtstiefel im Wienfluss zur Geschichte, ein herzhaftes Schleich dich! im Song Be Angry feiert die furiose Freude an der Wut. Mark E. Smith hätte dazu ein Tänzchen gewagt – oder Tritte ausgeteilt. Pyrite sind aber alles andere als Miesepetras und -peter: Das Album besticht durch seine spielerische Vielschichtigkeit, durch seine Lust am Experiment: ein Song über Laktoseintoleranz? Ja natürlich! Beware of Milch und Käse!Mandoline, Zerrorgel, Violine, Akkordeon … ist es Minimal Music, Folk, Pop, entspannter Rrriot – oder gar … irgendwie Jazz? "Macht's mal was zum Mitsingen!", wurden Pyrite tatsächlich angejammert. Haben sie gemacht. Eine ganze Platte lang. À la Pyrite.

----------

Mr. Shakespeare was right: all that glitters is not gold, it might as well be pyrite aka fool’s gold. But gold or not gold, in this case it doesn’t make a difference. Because PYRITE are known to shine in a non-foolish way: they are Vienna’s high valued prog sensation. Nothing less. On their astonishing debut „Cave“ they are lavishly sharing their all-encompassing and eclectic musical treasures as if there was no tomorrow (which might be the case, we just don’t know yet).

Making the adventourous hypnosounds of Steve REICH mingle with a more easy-going version of TORTOISE, the highly congenial multi-vocal and multi-instrumental 6 piece band creates an atmosphere of bliss that reminds of STEREOLAB or a good-humoured version of CAN. The version that would write a song about lactose intolerance.

„For those who are about to surprise us, we salute you!“, one might call out admiringly to PYRITE, who playfully meander a huge setup of pigeon holes without being holed. Because they’ve got too much music on their minds and the right intruments in their hands. Chapeau!
