Now Hear This: 10 000 Russos | Live In Berlin

The Porto trio bring their Superinertia album to life — & hypnotize you in the process.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Porto trio 10 000 Russos’ new Live In Berlin double LP captures the band storming through their subterranean motorik psych-drone live at Berlin’s Astra Kulturhaus on Oct. 16, 2021. Recorded during their European tour, Live In Berlin finds 10 000 Russos performing their 2021 Superinertia LP in full — the album’s five songs expanded and taken to even more hypnotic and hedonistic heights in a live setting.

These shows were 10 000 Russos’ first with the new, more-electronic lineup and sound, with newly recruited synth player Nils Meisel making his debut on the Superinertia LP and completing the lineup alongside founding members João Pimenta (drums/vocals) and Pedro Pestana (guitar). Across the hour-long set, Pimenta’s deadpan sprechgesang vocal and machine-like percussion, Pestana cascading psych guitar loops and Meisel’s repetitive synth basslines all combine on a performance that will pull you into a trance at times and get you on your feet at others.”
