"ROLLING STONE" 20 Best Avant Albums of 2017

No 9.

"Bosnian-born accordion hypnotist Mario Batkovic is a cyclicing minimalist, culling mesmerizing melodies and sounds from a lone squeezebox. Not content to be just another post–Philip Glass loopster, Batkovic uses a close microphone set up, allowing the clicks and clacks of the keys to be part of his sound world, creating delicate (“Restrictus”), frantic (“Machina”) and deep-droning (“Desiderii Patriae”) music with the formal feel of classical but the closeness of indie rock."

NEW ALBUM

He brings the cycling, repetitive pulses of minimalist composers to raw solo performance, creating a sparkling world of hypnotic melodies and resonating sounds. Miked so you can hear the intimate clack of buttons, it’s a stunning marvel of see-sawing melodies and warm wheezes.
