The best kept secret in music



"..Kristen Strezo and the Czech Republic’s “This balance” is one of those rare compilations which show the hallmark of good artistry- combining originality, deep personal expression and genuine experimentation with unique sounds and rhythmic mixes.." - Wo!Magazine

"Church of Girl Radio"

"..With a punk disposition and a style influenced by the world at large, Kristen Strezo and the Czech Republic create something completely different. Kristen’s delicate and thickly emotive vocals plait over and around a bevy of ethereally understated, complex soundscapes and world beats creating a distinctively charged flavor of art rock. There are also unabashed tribal howls, hypnotic beats, delicate electronic melodies and moments of sparseness resulting in an always moody and indescribably mesmerizing sound.." - Church of Girl Radio

"Venus Magazine"

"..moody, thought-provoking, interesting and nothing of the ordinary.." - Venus Magazine

"Blur Magazine"

"..a powerful singer as well as a dynamic performer.." - Blur Magazine

"Illinois Entertainer"

"..slightly-dissonant punk-influenced music that keeps a straight face and maintains interest at the same time.." - Illinois Entertainer

"Creative Loafing"

Kristen Strezo and the Czech Republic play Tim Burton-esque dark pop that blends spooky and oddball sounds with gypsy rhythms. There's a bit of a Klezmer feel to the instrumentation in some songs, and more of a rock aesthetic in others. The music never stays in the same place long enough to be labeled as either one. - Creative Loafing
