Sarmacja is a rural type of band; they tell stories of the land that has shaped them and which dictates their pulse - regardless of whether they want it or not. "Tutejsi" (The locals) recounts of something universal experienced by many on a daily basis. The originality of this story lies in the language used. Bass, reverberation, repetition - it turns out that dub forms are surprisingly well suited for capturing the spirit of rural wilderness, small-town lethargy and the vibe of the sun graciously rising over Poland every day. The album enables listeners to sense the impact which great history and iron politics had on the land, leaving it scarred and marked for life. However, it is a secondary circumstance for Sarmacja as it is the consistency of the place and this man that is crucial. What is important is what we often ignore - the fact that the fertile soil can still provide for its people. They attend churches, they go to supermarkets. They tend to love what their mothers did and duplicate the mistakes of their fathers. Its the dub sound that dominates the album - and its the unorthodox and proprietary type of dub. Sarmacja also draws from other stylistics - even techno or trip-hop. The album's epilogue is the cover of Kults "Poland". The original lyrics by Kazik had a critical overtone; in Sarmacjas version, there are no words at all. Instead, the duo created an intense form ending with a 3-minute deconstruction, which may stand for the victory of chaos or, on the contrary, the birth of something new.
