Description:

“Sanctuary” is the debut album by Terrapin, a relatively new trio from Athens, Greece, consisting of seasoned musicians who have left their mark on the local scene (two of the three are founding members of acclaimed psych-prog rockers No Man’s Land). But this is much more than just a side project. Centered around the songwriting of guitarist/vocalist Vassilis Bas Athanassiadis, Terrapin explore the fields of folk rock, acid folk, psychedelia and beyond, in a mostly guitar-driven, acoustic setting, with frequent bursts of electricity. The songs of “Sanctuary” were recorded from 2013 to 2016 and besides the core trio of guitar/vocals, bass and drums, the album features a bunch of trusty friends: renowned mandolinist George Goumenakis, young multi-instrumentalist (and brilliant songwriter in his own right) Robert Sin on keyboards, all-round cellist Stavros Parginos, Paul Karapiperis of Small Blues Trap fame on harmonica, and last but not least, the mighty Bill Hunchback on sitar.
