Guitarist/composer Juozas Milasius hails from Lithuania. And according to the press info, he may be affiliated with an existing Lithuanian jazz scene. Although with this release, the artist has designed an enjoyable set that hearkens back to the 70’s Euro space-rock movement. Milasius also utilizes synths, loops, and vocoder type devices to supplement his generally melodic fuzz-toned lines or placid voicings.

The opening piece titled “Prisilietimas,” commences with a Pink Floydian type groove, featuring Milasius’ cyclical and thoroughly melodic crunch-chord induced lines. Some of these works consist of programmatic rhythms, simple childlike harmonies, and distorted (or digitized) human voices. We don’t believe that Milasius is attempting to chart new musical terrain, however this production makes for an affable listening experience. As he melds the tried and true with a contemporary sound that is perhaps a tad more substantial than what many of his peers have been churning out these days.
