The alternative band Gaujarts, which has been gradually gaining recognition in Latvia since forming around 2007, has released its second album, Vibrācijas.
The 12-track album is a follow-up to the band’s 2008 release, Koncerts kultūras namā. It was recorded in Valmiera.
Gaujarts includes lead singer and guitarist Edgars Šubrovskis of the now-defunct group Hospitālu iela, accordeon player Mārcis Gurtiņš, drummer Ģirts Šolis, bass player Maija Ušča, and Edgars Mākens, who sings and plays keyboards, rhythm guitar and harmonica.
The band’s sound is distinctive, in large part because of Šubrovskis’ influence and the ever-present accordeon.
Tracks on Vibrācijas include:
- Valoda tiek atcelta pavisam
- Par vienu vīru
- Ko tu par mani
- Preobraženska sapnis
- Par tēviem
- Citas debesis
Gaujarts’ first album is available free of charge by signing up for the band’s newsletter. Visit www.gaujarts.lv for more information.
The band also appears on the Strāvoklis album, which features various Latvian independent music groups performing songs with words by poet Jānis Rainis. The album was released in June.
Vibrācijas is the second album from Latvian alternative band Gaujarts.
