Rika-How to draw a river, step by step-LP/CD

12 EUR / In stock.
"How to Draw a River, Step by Step" is the debut LP from Austria's Rika, though the band has been writing and recording music since 2005. While the LP is almost a decade in the making, the album is a true masterpiece that few bands will ever achieve in a lifetime of work. Effectively marrying piano and horns to guitar, bass, drums, and longing vocals, the album is broody, majestic, and open, like a frozen landscape painted by the last dying rays of sun before settling for a long cold night in the dead of winter. Feeling sad has never felt so right.
