Theodor Bastard - VetviTheodor Bastard "Vetvi" (CD)

Label: Theo Records, 2015 - THEO 005.
Collector's edition: 4-panel digipak, deluxe slipcase, 12-page booklet.
2nd edition. Release date: 01.03.2017

The album name is a Latin transliteration of the Russian word for branches bearing in mind the branches of the World tree which supports the heavens, connecting the heavens, the terrestrial world, and the underworld. It's music combines elements of world music, neofolk, dark wave and trip hop. The hallmark of the album is female vocal by lead singer Yana Veva, her unique voice filled by glory and in the same time by meditative serenity and mild warmth. The musicians use classic instruments as well as electronic instruments and numerous ethnic instruments. Theodor Bastard release their albums not so often, working for months in various recording studios in several cities and countries, searching for the best sound and arrangements. The work on this album took three years with plenty of musicians taking part in it. Continuing the theme of wanderings, which was the basic idea of the previous album Oikoumene, Theodor Bastard take their listeners from hot south to the fairy northern lights. A peculiar combination of the archaic percussions and folk instruments was used during the recording. Playing unusual ethnic instruments is still an important part of Theodor Bastard creative process. Russian horn, traditional Mongol violin morin khuur, ritual tibetian horn dunchen, ancient Russian gusli, cajon, jew's harp, dulcimer (string instrument like zither) - this is just a short list of musical miracles of the album. Many musicians were engaged in creating this sound kaleidoscope. That was a serious and laborious work.

Theodor Bastard - Pustota (2014 edition)Theodor Bastard "Pustota" (2014 edition) (CD)

Label: Theo Records, 2014 - THEO 004.
Jewelcase, slipcase, 16-page booklet.
Last copies!!!

10 years anniversary of "Pustota" album. Completly remastered version on professional gear. The reissue of Pustota is a result of thorough reconstruction and restoration of the compositions the audience first heard and remembered from the original version of the album, recorded by Theodor Bastard in 2004. Today, after 10 years, it can be said that Pustota became a real creative experiment that broke the stereotypes created by the bands previous works. In 2004, Pustota was released by several labels at the same time, such as Pandaimonium (Germany), The Art Records (Mexico) and Muzikal Yapim (Turkey). In Russia the album, as other works of Theodor Bastard, was released by Fulldozer Records. According to the members of the band, it was in Pustota that they found an extremely harmonious combination of electronic beats and ethnic instruments, and that was the main reason behind the albums success. It was here that Yana Veva found her unique singing manner, combining the Oriental motives with Balkan and Russian tradition. The lyrics were experimental, too. In Pustota, along with texts in Russian and English, you will find songs in Pushtu and Urdu. In some compositions Yana uses so called glossolalia, the combinations of words and sounds which lost their original meaning. Such a technique can often be met in traditional spells and in folk song refrains, and is a part of many sacral traditions, both Christian and Pagan.

Theodor Bastard - OikoumeneTheodor Bastard "Oikoumene" (CD)

Label: Theo Records, 2012 - THEO 003.
6-panel digipak, 16-page booklet.
Last copies!!!

The title refers to an ancient Greek notion, designating the inhabited or "civilized" sections of our planet, in other words those where mankind has left its mark - for better or worse. That global sweep is certainly echoed in the list of contributors, since our Russian artists are joined here by representatives of British, Zulu, Indian, and French-African traditions. Consequently, the list of instruments employed - and their home nations - is even longer. "It was interesting to reject electronic tools and all their trickery, as we worked instead with live material. That meant an entire year of stressful effort, but what an experience it was! Collaborating with so many genuinely talented musicians from all over the world gave us a special energy. We still feel it now!" A textual connection between the diverse tracks was spun by a single person, Theodor Bastard's vocalist Yana Veva. She worked "under the inspiration of various traditions and faiths, which represented aboriginal peoples from far-flung corners of the planet... They all live side by side with nature's wilderness, in places where ancient traditions endure. It doesn't matter which culture we're talking about - spiritual traditions just survive in places like that. For some people they might be little more than myth and fairytales, but for others those rituals are as real as our own urban jungle!"
