Siberian Flight: Bisamråtta, Foresteppe, and the New Klammklang Tapes
Krasnoyarsk's Klammklang label has become the region's primary outlet for tape music. What, however, is the rationale or philosophy behind such an outmoded format in 2016?
Either Faith or Good Works: Ales Tsurko, AY, Equinox Flower, and Chitoon
New electronic and electroacoustic recordings from Russia and Belarus speak in doubting terms about the near future. Should one turn to faith––or good deeds?
Quiet Introspection versus Outer Space: Noraus, Feizah, AIST, and Gxitt
New instrumental or hypnagogic recordings from Naberezhnye Chelny, Ulan-Ude, Moscow, and Dnipropetrovsk are all dedicated to silence. Dreamers need peace and quiet.
Pine Therapy: Endless Melancholy, Pavel Chigarskikh, SiJ, and Furthers
A collection of ambient and drone recordings from Yekaterinburg, Sevastopol, and Kiev share a common desire. They all express a sage preference for solitude over city life. Silence often heals.
Thresholds: Sal Solaris, Bisamratta/M. Sultan, Crane's Dreams, Borisov & Salnikov
The new LP from Sal Solaris is dedicated to transgression, both in sound and society. Other electronic releases from various Russian cities ponder similar themes.
Flux: Jelena Glazova, Astma, Kompakt–Katya, Blear Moon, and Sal Solaris
Improvisation plays a key role in a range of new electronic publications. All of them invite listeners to look beyond convention––and therefore far beyond nameable experiential states.
Chillout: New Recordings from Microcosmos and Alexander Saykov
The St. Petersburg label Microcosmos has published three chillout recordings, examining alternative views of actuality. Alexander Saykov extends them––to Moscow.
Some of the Smallest Waves: The "Terminal Dream" Compilation, 2016
A new label in Moscow––Terminal Dream––is dedicated to local ambient artists. Brought together, they reveal some common ideas about sound, space, and purpose.
Deconstruction: Harmash, Mujuice, 4 Positions of Bruno & Gultskra Artikler
Against the backdrop of East European political and economic challenges, four recordings ponder the appeal of deconstructive gestures––rather than stately pomp.
Convergence: Two New Compilation LPs from Electronica & Full of Nothing
Two of Russia's most significant independent labels––Electronica and Full of Nothing––have begun the New Year with simultaneous compilation albums.
