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.
Interactions: Cepasa, Krjuk, Eclectic Sound, Harry Light, and Ponty Mython
A Moscow EP and a Kiev LP together offer a dancefloor philosophy in troubled times between Russia and Ukraine. The five artists involved suggest that private virtues might improve public norms
In Situ: Sasha Nevolin, Aanbreken, Former Employees, and Deep Shoq
A range of new electronic recordings consider the relationship of sound and space, in terms of escaping one's surroundings. To what degree does noise manage to cancel out ostensible experience?
Simple Values: New House and Tech-House Tracks from Four Nations
Sergey Shyam runs a Moscow label called "Simple Things." Its core beliefs in collegiality and understatement are mirrored in other house and tech-house cuts this month, all published very far away.
A Retrospective Gaze: Dza, Mujuice, ZOLOTO, and Race to Space
Four new dance releases from around the Russian capital seek an escape from the daily grind. Increasingly, however, a pessimistic view of the future makes prior decades an attractive reference point.
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.
Hardships and Hope: Vtgnike, Nuage, Ksky, Cream Soda, and Pixelord
The extremely gifted producer known as Vtgnike has been arrested and imprisoned in Vladimir. We consider the situation, describe his current scene, and offer some ways in which people can help.
ABC Galaxy: Captain Eureka (FFM11)
ABC Galaxy (Roman Skarednov, Izhevsk): "The 'Captain Eureka' album is an attempt to combine motifs of euphoria, pleasure, panic, and horror. There are parallels with the current economic state in Russia"
Art Electronix: Partly Broken (Kryvyi Rih FFM6)
Art Electronix (Krivoi Rog, Ukraine): "In most cases, our compositions are made from collages of aging, defective sounds - together with old-school drum machine beats, all in the true Detroit spirit."
