Two Kinds of Anonymity: Paul Menska, x.y.r., IC3PEAK, and Milky Toad
Russian social networks are home both to shyness and subversion. Some artists seek nameless refuge, while others plan loud protest––from nowhere.
Quixotic Contradictions: Vihrea, Alex Kelman, Siba.Pro, and Antrru
Four new recordings from Siberia, Karelia and Saint Petersburg try to contradict actuality with unique daydreams and fantasies. Not all of them work.
Heavy Industry and Introspection: Hiroshima Toy Pet Records (Omsk)
From one industrial city in Southern Siberia comes a wide range of noise experiments, informed by their social surroundings. Clamor fades into calm.
Discreet Stanzas: Anton Malinen, Grebenshchik, Gaya Marina & "Bo i Bro"
Four new acoustic releases have roots in very diverse towns, all the way from Magadan to Kharkiv. What they share is a desire to hide from crude actuality.
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?
Monologs and a Stereo Sound: Vanyn, Ethica, Bananafish & Jonny Online
The recordings under consideration all speak in favor of humility and various forms of dialog. Current actuality, however, tends to prefer a strident monolog.
Getting There: Lena Kudrina, Kawri's Whisper, Endless Melancholy & Isea N
The theme of time is foregrounded by several new publications, but their authors remain unsure of an ideal outlook: forwards to the future––or back to a superior past?
Time to Listen: Information Ghetto, Lay-Far, Low Orbit Satellite & Tikriaeht
Four dance floor publications from Moscow, Krasnodar, Tula and––eventually––Syktyvkar are dedicated to difference. They consider the risks inherent in novelty.
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.
