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.
New from Sketis: Vasilyev Vecher, Baraka, Voronovo Krylo, and Bubamara
The Sketis label is announcing a series of new albums from both Russia and Latvia. They, in turn, draw upon a melange of folk traditions, ranging all the way from Siberia's criminal past to the Balkans or Tajikistan.
Antique Forms of Social Improvement: Šuma: "Zołak" (Minsk, FFM35)
The work of Belarusian folktronica ensemble Shuma (Šuma) is defined with an intriguing turn of phrase: "digital archaica." A new collection of remixes helps to explain that bond of tradition and hi-tech.
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.
SV Hutor: The Eponymous Album (Sterlitamak, FFM29)
For Western observers, many locations across a Russian map - with unpronounceable names and windswept railway stations - can appear unimaginably distant. In one of those lonely places we find SV Hutor.
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.
2muchachos: "A Forest Is Not What It Seems" (Cherepovets, FFM20)
2muchachos, based in the town of Cherepovets , turn the crackle and rustle of a tape-music aesthetic into the soundtrack for small-scale botanical bustle.
