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.
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.
Nowhere to Play: Glintshake, WLVS, Mooncake, & Show Me a Dinosaur
As socioeconomic realia impinge more and more upon private experience, the call for both difference and dignified dreaming sounds louder.
Seven Kinds of Solitude: The Best of New Belarusian Songwriting
The Belarusian magazine Experty.By has compiled a series of Top Ten lists, cataloging the best bands and recordings of last year.
Outside: Pinkshinyultrablast, Oat Oaks, Alla Dmitrievna, and Australian Kiss
As various bands perform in distant places, travel the globe, or simply dream, a common desire emerges: the possibility of erasing geography altogether.
Spaceships and Elusive Stars: FPRF, Eerie Summer, Ongkara, and Wolfredt
The current economic difficulties in Russia and surrounding nations lead to greater levels of reverie. Dreams seem better than reality, yet stargazing is rarely easy.
The World Outside: Sunrises, Japanese Ash, Nearfield, and Atariame
From snowy Siberia to the medieval towns of Belarus, a range of new recordings are directly informed by their melancholy setting. A folk ensemble from Saint Petersburg pushes back––with a smile.

Two rock bands from Samara join philosophical forces with new recordings from Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. Taken together, these four outfits fashion a worldview to counter cocky "progression."
Lessons of the Past: Trud, Jaunt, Kirov, and Bicycles for Afghanistan
Several new rock recordings, all the way from Saint Petersburg to Simferopol, express doubts about grand spectacle. Better, smaller forms of interaction are found both in memories and on stage.
Post-Perfectionists: Vhore, I Silovye Mashiny, Suvital, and Starcardigan
Various forms of escapism are encountered in modern Russian music, all the way from storied space rock to garage hedonism and masochistic decadence. Examples of them all transpire this week.
