Ariu Kara - Emptiness... It Looked For Her...

Ariu Kara - Emptiness... It Looked For Her...Internet label INQB8R specializing in not big and sometimes rather nice releases has recently produced the second solo work of Anastasia Krutova performing under the pseudonym Ariu Kara. The new album (mini-album if you wish) is dedicated to the best friend of Nastia - Larisa Kozlova who suddenly left our world in 2008.
The record starts with depressive monologue about existence inside reality and attempts to leave it at all costs. Darkness, loneliness, weight of loss - the whole world shrinks to the size of a leather sofa and all around is devoured by... emptiness. Imaginary emptiness is the main theme of this release, in further minutes it unfolds by dark ambient castles in the air, squeaks, rustles and cracks. All gloomy components of the darkest side of industrial culture are present, including the samples of human speech drowning in the cloud of electronic effects and drones, turning one part of Emptiness... It Looked For Her... into soundtrack to some terrifying film. Perfect, interesting sound... What I like undoubtedly is that Ariu Kara has her unique sounding which was developed in the new work after the album Medlennij Skaner Stalkera (released by the label Lagunamuch in 2005) warmly received by the audience.
