The master of melancholy Jacaszek confronts his most confounding demons with the eleven track electroacoustic collage KWIATY, his second album for Ghostly International.

Following on from his highly lauded 2014 Touch album Catalogue Des Arbres, KWIATY draws inspiration from the 17th-century metaphysical poetry of one Robert Herrick. Having come across an English anthology of his work, Jacaszek described the poems he found within in a most eloquent way "They spoke about death, pain, longing and loneliness, but somehow these pieces were bringing hope, solace, and peace" he also found that when read aloud, Herrick's poems also sounded structurally like songs.

Finding influence within these passages, and seeing the opportunity to sculpt a backlog of previously unreleased recordings—warm-blooded samples, lonesome synth lines, pared-down guitar parts—begging for proper arrangements and dynamic mixdown, KWIATY was born. Calling on the vocal talents of Hania Malarowska (of the Warsaw-based rock band Hanima) and Joasia Sobow- iec-Jamioł and Natalia Grzebała, Jacaszek set about crafting out a spectral vision of lucid poetry and sonno structured soundscapes.

The resulting album seems to exist within that hallucinatory time between consciousness and falling asleep. A moment when thoughts and memories seemingly drift together yet the strength to focus and make sense of them seemingly falls away as every second drifts past.

A truly haunting recording, in all the right ways.
