Endless April: Oleg Kostrow, Secret Avenue, Inna Pivars, & Respublika Palina
In four new recordings from Russia and Belarus, thoughts of the future predominate. As tomorrow looks unpredictable, childhood and adolescence gain a special importance.
A Tribute to the Past: Maxim Buldakov, Ilya Gerus, Inlensk, and Sugar God
All the way from Moscow to the villages of Siberia, a common idea finds voice in a handful of dance floor publications. In four of these releases, the romance of nostalgia and happy stasis proves most persistent.
Flying Far from Home: 813, Ewan Limb, Dave Pad, and Tram Drivers
As new recordings appear for dance floors across Russia and Ukraine, one would expect hedonism and jollity to predominate. The challenges of a touring musician quickly change the mood.
Friends and Family: Esthetix, Eugene Dolz, Phil Gerus, and Gillepsy
New dancefloor publications from both solo artists and ensembles this week underscore the importance of support systems, either in childhood or when professional obstacles loom later on in life.
Outline Festival 2015: "The Sounds Needed for Collective Immersion"
Headlined by Atom™'s 'Double Vision' live, Ricardo Villalobos, Pharmakon, Nina Kraviz, Rhadoo, and Daniel Avery, the Outline Festival will operate across three outdoor scenes and two arenas - inside some industrial buildings
An Alternative Industrial Heritage: The Boiler Room Live Sets
The Boiler Room live sets have been streamed from Russia since last year. Although they aim to forge global connections, certain aspects of the Russian scene make it unique.
A Prior Humility: Long Arm, AL-90, SBPCh, and Information Ghetto
As an implicit reaction to the growing pomp and circumstance of primetime Russian media, four new releases look back to the sounds and stories of childhood. Not with sentiment, but with purpose.
Sources of Comfort: Mana Island, Marina Nevgen, Karenin, & Amor Entrave
New LPs from Minsk, Izhevsk, Yekaterinburg, and Moscow ponder sources of consolation and comfort. One suggests that the greatest consolation is found in one's own domestic "cultural baggage."
Being Social: Obe Dve, Auroraw, EXIT Project, and Maskeliade Street Studio
Moscow's Anton Maskeliade has published recordings of his "Street Studio," in which passers-by are invited to perform whatever they want. These levels of social optimism are not widely shared.
An Enlightening Escape: Casey Cat, Tantsui, Jimmy Roqsta, and Moresebya
New dancefloor offerings from Russia and Estonia struggle with viable forms of optimism. "Escapism" becomes less a matter of hedonism and more a conscious response to unsatisfying actuality.
