Muzeum Historii Naturalnej
"Fringe dissonance and psychoactive folk expulsions from Samutek, the alias of young Polish artist, Mateusz Woś, debuting on vinyl for the first time thanks to the ever-busy Horn of Plenty. Muzeum Historii Naturalnej is presented as two long form pieces, though it plays like a series of shifting vignettes built from abstracted keys, voiceovers and minimal electronics, unspooling from Woś in unexpected, decidedly off-shape ways, feeling as if plucked from the void or sent through the stargate from another dimension. Where do such inspirations come from? Are they remote-viewed into existence? I guess we've come to understand music of this kind as time-dilated or dreamlike, certainly an aesthetic that feels ever-relevant in this era of compressed time, though there's something especially off-balance and vertiginous about Samutek, almost seasick with memory, at times like that last Treasury of Puppies record, others like the often suffocatingly claustrophobic Anti-Clock soundtrack. I understand Woś is still a very young man, which for my own biases makes this very singular music all the more impressive, though it should be at most an incidental point: this kind of world-making stands outside of time."
