This album is an incredible follow-up to their previous release, Flamingo. I don't actually have enough words on here to describe how good this is. You should just start with the first song, and let it play, see what happens.

Doomcharts: “Nugrybauti” weaves, swerves and glides through epic Prog work-outs,motorik nuances and psychedelia in a dazzling display of musicianship and innovation – truly outstanding."
Mike Watt (Independent artist/The Minutemen/fIREHOSE/The Stooges): "Really good stuff, respect!"
El Coyote: "One of the most breathtaking sound surprises of the year is here."
The Obelisk: “It’s more focused than that paints it, and just because they’re improvising doesn’t necessarily mean the three-piece don’t have an idea of where they want a given piece to end up. Still, they carry across their sound with a marked dynamic, expanding on live energy without sacrificing it, crafting material that is raw at the same time it demonstrates breadth and a colorful scope that is just waiting for the listener to take hold it and be carried off who knows where.”
Nevermind The Hype: "A massive psychrock record!"
La Habitación 235: "It's also true that they carry an inner beauty that reminds us of the greatest of the genre (...) It is possible that "Nugrybauti" may be one of the most original experiences in recent years."
Festivalinfo: "A majestic psychedelic epos in which the musicians lift each other to an ever greater height - 4/5"
Psych Lovers: "One amazing moment leads to another and no jam ends the way it starts which gives the impression of each number being a journey."
The Fragmented Flaneur: "This then is a monster of an album, but one with the emotional intelligence to take the listener not only on a journey into a sonic universe… it gives you a far broader perspective while at the same time being a genuinely exciting prospect, even when you have it on repeat. Definitely one of my albums of the year so far."
Lust For Life Magazine: "A true kaleidoscopic album that ends with a real freak out explosion (...) After those last notes you really don't know where you are anymore... - 4/5"
Musicmaker Magazine: "It's drawn-out and heavy, but remains exciting, inventive, dynamic, varied and above all hypnotic (...) Heavy wondrousness - 4/5"
It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine: "An amazing album by this incredible instrumental jam trio. It’s completely improvised and full of surprises. Highly recommended."
released July 22, 2020
‘NUGRYBAUTI’ is recorded in two days in February 2019 by Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt at Galloway Recording Studio. Every song on ‘NUGRYBAUTI’ is completely improvised. The record is a new step forward in experimentation and dynamics for ATLANTA. It’s an album that isn’t about soloing, but about creating an atmosphere and composing real songs on the spot. Guitarist Pieter Holkenborg: “Instead of a musical experience it’s more like a psychological game, or fight, between the brain and heart and the brains and hearts of the other two guys. When all three of us get on the same wavelength it can get really intense. It’s a weird combination of melancholy and sheer joy that strikes me on those moments.” In January 2020 the band proudly signed to Lay Bare Recordings (Yawning Man/Orange Sunshine/Pyramidal) for the release of ‘NUGRYBAUTI’ on 250 coloured LP’s in July 2020.
NUGRYBAUTI (Lithuanian): to become distracted during a task, literally to get lost wandering in search of mushrooms.
