“Ryabina” (“Rowan Tree”) is the third official album of Tsaraas recorded several years ago. Unlike previous releases based on the poetry of XX century, art of deranged people, etc., on “Ryabina” from the very first seconds you can feel neat and nice words of ancient folk songs, falling like berries from a tree. The vocals on this album are done by Sergey Shtyk, a member of the punk folk project Krasnye Svitki. They are known for vocal experiments when they were smashing the crowd in public transport and starting to sing traditional Russian folk songs...

On “Ryabina” these Russian recitations of the past generations are befringed by deep electronic noisy droning. According to the musicians of Tsaraas themselves, “Ryabina” is Russian peoples drone ambient. This third album sums up in 38 minutes and consists of 3 tracks — “Rowan Tree”, “Apple” and “Sun”. Rowan and appled warmed by the sun grow up in autumn, when all nature is being prepared to death. The luminary made these fruits in it's own image and likeness — ideal sphere. All these symbols in semantic field of Tsaraas may mean the ideal looped desline of everything. But maybe the listener will find other images in this album, yet they would be spiritually haunting, images of eternal existence and life in Russia...

Currently the Tsaraas project is frozen and we don't know when the new recordings will be published.
