A Great Escape: Magnetic Poetry, Kompakt–Katya, SiJ, and King Imagine
In the absence of a clearly structured marketplace, contemporary music in Russia is increasingly a form of self-expression. Social impact is neither easy, nor especially wanted.
Effort as Transcendence: Doyeq, OMMA, Heavenchord, and Skajite Michilu
As a range of obstacles, both private and professional, stop musicians from working uninterrupted, diligence acquires a new significance. It becomes a form of transcendence, far above material woes.
Faith and Fortune: Gayana, Internet Sushi, Beatowski, Taran and Lomov
Faith is an integral part of Moscow's Gayana project, whose members are both grateful and committed to God. Other beliefs, however, transpire in releases from Ukrainian and Latvian musicians this week.
Disintegration Loop: Ovrkl, Bisamråtta, Moscillate, Garimastah & Tikhie Kamni
Several new Russian electronic recordings display an increasing gratitude for both solitude and silence. The further one happens to be from clamorous modernity or a capital city, the better.
Communication: Dima Ustinov, Triangle Sun, Ewan Limb, and SunMan24
From downtempo lounge to broken techno and "psychoactive go-fi," a range of new Russian dance floor recordings prefer to celebrate private, rather than public effort.
Dolor: 4 Pozicii Bruno, Endless Melancholy, SiJ, and Cosmonautics Day
New drone and industrial recordings from Russia and Ukraine turn their attention simultaneously to anxiety and depression. Both, perhaps, indicate dissatisfaction - and therefore a burgeoning hope.
Fictions: Mutaforiya Lili, Yankees of Moor, Schweinemaschinen, & Leonid Fedorov
Fantasy and the imagination are key aspects of these new recordings from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. Their joint celebration of oddity simply highlights an ongoing disappointment with normality.
FORMA Festival 2015: Ambidextrous, OID, Dadaisme, Poima, & Midimode
Moscow's FORMA festival just took place and - with its interdisciplinary celebration of modern Russian art - engendered some interesting views of creative "labor" among its many participants
Constant, Creative Seclusion: BAIKAL, Ocean Shiver, x.y.r., and Lemonday
Ambient and lo-fi publications from four northern addresses all ponder the meaning of solitude. It does not lead to melancholy; in fact it offers a productive liberty from the awfulness of social existence.
Outline Festival 2015: "The Sounds Needed for Collective Immersion"
Headlined by Atom™'s 'Double Vision' live, Ricardo Villalobos, Pharmakon, Nina Kraviz, Rhadoo, and Daniel Avery, the Outline Festival will operate across three outdoor scenes and two arenas - inside some industrial buildings
