Volchok: "Villages" and a Chekhovian Sadness
Volchok (tr: Wolf Cub) began - and endure - as a duo: Larisa Timerkaeva and Ilya Udovenko. Originally from the industrial, provincial city of Izhevsk, they both now operate from Moscow.
Ponty Mython: "The Tropic of Capricorn" & Other Travels
The very British wordplay behind "Ponty Mython" belongs, in fact, to St. Petersburg native Aleksandr Pletnev, who now lives in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius. His newest house release, "The Tropic of Capricorn EP," emerges this month on the heels of a tellingly brief interview for Test Press. Diligence takes the place of any wordy self-congratulation. A few pithy examples will prove the point.
Fantasia versus Nothing: Smokey Hill, Delete, Sotus, Honey & Heavenchord
Four days after teachers in Dagestan were told their job has no inherent worth, various new recordings investigate fantasy and (absolutely) nothing.
Getting There: Lena Kudrina, Kawri's Whisper, Endless Melancholy & Isea N
The theme of time is foregrounded by several new publications, but their authors remain unsure of an ideal outlook: forwards to the future––or back to a superior past?
Time to Listen: Information Ghetto, Lay-Far, Low Orbit Satellite & Tikriaeht
Four dance floor publications from Moscow, Krasnodar, Tula and––eventually––Syktyvkar are dedicated to difference. They consider the risks inherent in novelty.
Just One Letter: Kobra, Awlnight, Sasha Vinogradova, Mariqa & Armanjazz
A series of new publications from St. Petersburg, Moscow, and provincial Belarus all give thought to the slimmest of differences between matters "cosmic and comic."
High-Frequency Pressures: Cream Soda, Mamanet, Naadya, and Filatique
Using either canonical or peripheral dance-floor sounds, four publications from Russia and Ukraine consider the growing "pressure" of stately intent upon private whim.
Improvisation: Artemiev, A. Toymintseva, M. Kutskova, and A. Rostotskaya
Four recent publications from solo artists in both Russian jazz and pop music are dedicated to themes of individual effort––and the related risks thereof.
An Almost Hallucinogenic Anxiety: Dza, IJO, 300 Degrees, and Escenda
Four dancefloor recordings, from very different locations in Russia and Lithuania, are linked by a sense of troubling, yet productive worry.
A Sweet, Familiar Melancholy: The Cancel, BMB, Tantsui, and Oligarkh
Objects of desire move further from home in some new house, hip-hop, and bass releases. As fantasy becomes a behavioral norm, some artists discern a historical pattern.
