Slnko Rec. Longital : Výprava / Voyage (SK,2007)****
Longital basically is an alternative pop band, but again with so much ‘art’ arrangements they are different and distinctive, in a semi-acoustic composed and arranged way. These arrangements range from acoustic and electric instruments (also a bowed guitar is used) to PC-controlled samples (Daniel Salontay was once a computer programming teacher). They call themselves “voyagers of sound”, which explains a pleasure to create well worked out details in addition to the songwriting, mixed with a rhythmical attractive sort of complexity. The electric guitar here and there works out larger improvisations embedded in rhythms and samples. The forty-three minutes of the album were over in no time, leaving me satisfied behind as if after a bumpy-moving starship’s voyage.. confirmed by the finilizing effect of the almost psychedelic guitar excursion on the last track.
