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.
Kings of Empty Dancefloors: Korablove, Swaves, Luka, and Cao Sao Vang
Various professional and social difficulties lead four electronic musicians from Russia and Belarus to celebrate solitude, peace, and quiet. A distance from social life appears to produce superior sounds.
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?
Dadaisme: "Dasein Mosaic" (Togliatti and Moscow, FFM31)
Our new recording from Dadaisme sports a weighty philosophical concept. Entitled "Dasein Mosaic," it is inspired by Heidegger's notion of "Dasein." Put simply, "Mosaic" is directly informed by a view of existence or being that's split between two states: selfhood and society.
Zimne: "Flying in Dreams and Daylight" (Novosibirsk, FFM23)
Novosibirsk's Zimne have released a second LP of metaphysical trip-hop. These new songs combine the core themes of earthbound romance, distant galaxies, and a painful gap between them.
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.
Skajite Michilu: The Bicycle EP (Yakutsk, FFM15)
One of the most isolated places we've documented on FFM also has the potential to become one of the most promising: Yakutia. Skajite Michilu (Michil Ambrosyev) was raised 3,000 miles from Moscow.
A Sense of Movement: Miusha, La Vtornik, Mon.ka, and Camel Crock
Some Russian recordings this week refer to their distance from the capital, directly or otherwise. Rather than fall victim to any stereotypes of provinciality, they instead see a benefit in remoteness.
Between Here and There: Htrspltn, Tilde, John Example, and Talnik
New electronic recordings from a range of outlying Russian cities draw parallels between their location and local history. A sense of distance transpires, both from cultural centers and the passage of time.
Four Understatements: Misha Mishenko, Maguett, Speck, and Sö
Humility and understatement color a number of Russian instrumental releases. Their audible modesty is prompted by childhood memories, an eco-aesthetic, and disorienting experiences online.
