Looking Upwards and Down: IWKC and Art Electronix (FFM37 and 38)
Two new releases from FFM. One is Ukrainian, the other is Russian - and both are instrumental. The difference between them, genres aside, is in their attitude to the weight of the surrounding world.
Abstract Worlds: Ewan Limb, Filatique, Moonscape, and Phil Anker
One might think that a challenging social environment would lessen the appeal of romantic wistfulness among young artists. A hard life might breed resignation or greater pragmatism. Nothing of the sort.
Sculpting in Time: Talnik, Art Electronix, Copi Chon, and Love Cult
New recordings from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Seversk, Saint Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, and Moscow all turn their attention to the passage of time. In a realm of gaudy materialism and crude pragmatism, time promises more than effort.
Back to Nature: Silver Wedding, Port Mone, Vozvraschenie, and Alhambra
In a world of adult responsibilities, urban anxiety, and other challenges, the spontaneous nature of childhood experience can seem very appealing. Four new recordings look back to a simpler time and place.
Starting Again: Viljandi Guitar Trio, Alpha-Beta, Wols, and Nikita Bondarev
Four publications this month are dedicated to themes of transformation and metamorphosis. Despite their differing styles, they find common ground in a celebration of good-natured change.
From Discord to Sonic Therapy: Motherfathers: "Slow Diver" (2014, FFM36)
The Moscow band called Motherfathers have long been associated with the capital's noise and experimental rock scenes. Now, however, they are publishing a drone EP designed overtly as sonic therapy.
TosyaChai: "Dreams" (Saint Petersburg, FFM34)
TosyaChai is the stage-name of Tosilya Chaikina from Saint Petersburg. Until recently she performed as one half of More Oblakov. A debut solo album is now published through FFM.
Brinstaar: "Shanticore Middlerings" (Rostov-na-Donu/Moscow, FFM33)
Moscow's Brinstaar stands behind a new publishing venture, Kota Records. Over the course of several recent interviews, he establishes an elegant worldview with which to counter the mainstream.
Misha Mishenko and Alwayslate: "In Pursuit of Light/Chapter" (FFM26/27)
"When I compose, I simply turn off my brain and surrender to a flight of fancy. It's something elusive. It happens all of a sudden, spontaneously... it's what you might call 'improvisation of the heart and soul.'"
Кishochki "Community" (Moscow, FFM21)
Many hundreds of miles from Moscow, an ailing industrial town is home to some introspective, barely audible instrumentals. They celebrate friendship and community in ways that dismiss distance.
