Girnų Giesmės (Songs of the Millstones) is a perfect name for a post-industrial experimental act that sounds fairly cold and harsh, yet hints at archaic roots. The characteristic sound of Girnų Giesmės, the project of Laurynas Jukonis, indeed resembles that of a millstone in a way; the textural formations are repetitive, coarse and shadowy, but the source is organic and primeval. Having entered the Lithuanian dark electronic music scene back in 1995, Girnų Giesmės was very fertile in the subsequent years and managed to create a musical cosmology of its own kind. The latter borrows its primary language from dark industrial music, but is full of archaic symbols, rusted primitive soundscapes and psychedelic tonalities. That’s what makes the music of Girnų Giesmės affect the listener almost on the subconscious level – where the blurred memories of the prehistoric past are buried. In the alternative music awards A.LT 2008 Girnų Giesmės was recognized as the best experimental act of the year.
