This quartet has a weird name – they’re named after a local hero Štefan Kovač Marko – and no vocals. But without exaggeration it’s one of the uniques in Slovenia. We can talk about the “future of post-rock” or the mega mix of genres – bringing together jazz, post-rock, ethno, noise and folk music, but still ŠKM banda possesses something special.
This time the sound picture is widen with diverse acoustic instruments like banjo, ukulele, kalimba, cimbalon and xylophone, but on “Panontikon” the band manages to combine everything into an ambient travel through the music worlds.
