Fleeting Likelihoods: The New Subwise and Belka Compilations (2017)
Two important compilations of late have very diverse origins: indie tape music and downtempo idm or glitch. They are both, however, fueled by a lasting desire to be somewhere else
Firestorms on a Wounded Landscape: Ivan Erofeev and Zavoloka
Recent industrial publications from Kiev (via Vienna) and Moscow (via Omsk) juxtapose a factory-floor aesthetic with regional, chronically ailing networks
Keeping Silence at Bay: The "II Miracle" Compilation from Ezhevika
The Ezhevika label in Minsk, Belarus has published a new compilation of regional music. The contributors consider their bonds both to colleagues and predecessors.
Whatever Comes Out: Kruzhok, Kusto, Siberian Tsars, and Pia Fraus
Grounded in 1990s' shoegaze, new recording rock from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Tallinn have difficulty any finding similar inspiration in 2017. An argument ensues.
The FFM Festival in Los Angeles: Film, Food, Music, and Northern Life
UCLA will bring together popular and classical music artists, film, cuisine and graphic art from Russia, the Ukraine and the Baltics for “Far From Moscow.”
Almost Nowhere to Be Seen: SBPCh (СБП4), Ferrein, Tiiiza, and Pixelord
"The theme of an .exe file loops backs to my very own childhood: to the sounds of idm music, to DOS programs, and an overall sense of 'cyber-romance'" (Pixelord, Aleksey Devyanin)
Distant Storms: Holy Palms, Boris Grim, Pia Fraus & Show Me a Dinosaur

Russian social networks are home both to shyness and subversion. Some artists seek nameless refuge, while others plan loud protest––from nowhere.
Quixotic Contradictions: Vihrea, Alex Kelman, Siba.Pro, and Antrru
Four new recordings from Siberia, Karelia and Saint Petersburg try to contradict actuality with unique daydreams and fantasies. Not all of them work.
Sonic Garbage: Won James Won, AWOTT, Zhenya Kukoverov & IHNABTB
Our interlocking and semi-improvised recordings from Moscow's underground rock scene still give voice––in 2016––to some very old dilemmas indeed.
