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.
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.
Friends and Distant Family: FPRF, Oligarkh, The HIK, and Gnoomes
Surrounded by a series of failing support systems, be they social or financial, four Russian ensembles turn to themes of family. In difficult times, thoughts of friends and colleagues grow more important.
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.
Anton Gudkov and the Okinawa Head Cutters: Omsk Recordings (FFM30)
A few weeks ago in May, the Siberian city of Omsk hosted a festival of street art entitled "Spaces of Multiplicity" A regional sound artist quickly planned a celebration of noise in a pedestrian underpass.
Nonlinear Forms of Production: Rhizome, Yuka, Love Cult, and Dza
The Petrozavodsk duo Love Cult have just announced they'll be writing one track each day - for an entire year. Other new projects, such as Moscow's Rhizome, express similar forms of private industry.
Empty Patterns: Far from Here (Cherepovets, FFM8)
"As I was writing these Empty Patterns tracks, I imagined all kinds of empty buildings to myself. They included large and vacuous halls, in the center of which a gramophone was playing..."
Surrender: Maskeliade, Astra Dome, Mark Rothko, and Heroin Grove
Moscow's Anton Maskeliade has a new single that furthers his investigations into improvised performance. The same validation of spontaneity appears in a new Siberian netlabel, Hair Del.
Productive Patterns: Glimsy, Art Electronix, SRPNT, and Andy Quark
Some St. Petersburg electronic recordings discern a happy overlap between the workings of nature and a minimalist soundscape. Civic clamor, however, often sounds louder - and more crudely.
Abiding Hopes: Korablove, Siba.Pro, Unlogic Thing, and Kosmonavt
Romantic metaphors inform these new recordings, all borrowed from discussions of open forests, boundless oceans, and "schizoid" thought. Daily life, however, stubbornly refuses to cooperate.
