Alyosha, the fourth full-length album from Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus,  released on September 1st.

An hour-long composition comprising six movements with a prologue and epilogue, Alyosha stands somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, post-rock, and American primitive.

“I was reading The Brother’s Karamazov — which is awesome by the way — and wanted to make something of a similar scale and scope. I wanted to aim high, take a leap of faith, pretend to be a better musician than I actually am, and see what would happen.”

From John Fahey to Mogwai, Steve Reich to Ali Akbar Khan, Patkus' music is an idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques.

“For never was a story more stark,

Than this of Alyosha and his Lark.”

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
