Alt band Gaujarts releases 2nd album

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:

  1. Vibrācijas
  2. Mīlulīt
  3. Valoda tiek atcelta pavisam
  4. Sāls
  5. Plecu
  6. Par vienu vīru
  7. Atzīšana
  8. Ko tu par mani
  9. Preobraženska sapnis
  10. Par tēviem
  11. Citas debesis

The album is available in digital format through the group’s Bandcamp page, as well as through MICREC’s digital music store,

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.
