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
Either through the traditions of shoegaze or the older conventions of nocturnal and stellar imagery, four recordings look back towards a purportedly "Eurasian" form of solitude.
Two Kinds of Anonymity: Paul Menska, x.y.r., IC3PEAK, and Milky Toad
Russian social networks are home both to shyness and subversion. Some artists seek nameless refuge, while others plan loud protest––from nowhere.
Lost Dubs: Bop, Dissident, Korsun, Oak, Nuage, and Electrosoul System
The Microfunk label in Saint Petersburg has decided to archive and advertise some of its premium material from recent years. The reasons for doing so are locally specific.
Heavy Industry and Introspection: Hiroshima Toy Pet Records (Omsk)
From one industrial city in Southern Siberia comes a wide range of noise experiments, informed by their social surroundings. Clamor fades into calm.
A Very Fluid Movement: Gultskra Artikler, Mårble, Ajokki, and Wet Straw
Toying with the basic structures of techno or glo-fi, four new recordings from Siberian artists consider a different kind of escapism. Psychology slowly takes the place of dance-floor frippery.
Siberian Flight: Bisamråtta, Foresteppe, and the New Klammklang Tapes
Krasnoyarsk's Klammklang label has become the region's primary outlet for tape music. What, however, is the rationale or philosophy behind such an outmoded format in 2016?
Either Faith or Good Works: Ales Tsurko, AY, Equinox Flower, and Chitoon
New electronic and electroacoustic recordings from Russia and Belarus speak in doubting terms about the near future. Should one turn to faith––or good deeds?
Rhythmic Designs: Rave Smith, Roma Khleb (RJB), Tony Soprano & Mårble
Although none of these recordings are dance music in the strictest, most canonical sense, their dalliance with rhythmic escapism and abandon is crucial.
Thresholds: Sal Solaris, Bisamratta/M. Sultan, Crane's Dreams, Borisov & Salnikov
The new LP from Sal Solaris is dedicated to transgression, both in sound and society. Other electronic releases from various Russian cities ponder similar themes.
