Piiptsjilling - in spoar

One of the most special Dutch bands that I know, already since 2008; or wouldn’t you all it a band? The line-up is not unusual (2 vocalists, a guitarist and an electronic musician) but their sound definitely is. Loosely evolving around the poetry of Jan Kleefstra, spoken softly and unsophisticated, in Frysian language, Rutger Zuydervelt (electronics) and brother Romke Kleefstra (guitar, bass) create dense volumes of sound, intensities increasing and decreasing. Vocal counterpart is Mariska Baars, whose wordless singing brings in another timbre and more spaciousness.

Like all other Piiptsjilling albums, ‘in spoar’ is based on “live in the studio” (a church in this case) improvisations.
