Fuselab Wistfulness: Galun, Nienvox, Frunk29, and Summer of Haze
Four new LPs from the wonderful Fuselab label compare two different experiences. They evaluate social potentials in 2014 relative to both nostalgic memories of the 1970s and the peacefulness of a non-urban address.
TosyaChai: "Dreams" (Saint Petersburg, FFM34)
TosyaChai is the stage-name of Tosilya Chaikina from Saint Petersburg. Until recently she performed as one half of More Oblakov. A debut solo album is now published through FFM.
A Retrospective Gaze: Dza, Mujuice, ZOLOTO, and Race to Space
Four new dance releases from around the Russian capital seek an escape from the daily grind. Increasingly, however, a pessimistic view of the future makes prior decades an attractive reference point.
Anton Gudkov and the Okinawa Head Cutters: Omsk Recordings (FFM30)
A few weeks ago in May, the Siberian city of Omsk hosted a festival of street art entitled "Spaces of Multiplicity" A regional sound artist quickly planned a celebration of noise in a pedestrian underpass.
SV Hutor: The Eponymous Album (Sterlitamak, FFM29)
For Western observers, many locations across a Russian map - with unpronounceable names and windswept railway stations - can appear unimaginably distant. In one of those lonely places we find SV Hutor.
Nonlinear Forms of Production: Rhizome, Yuka, Love Cult, and Dza
The Petrozavodsk duo Love Cult have just announced they'll be writing one track each day - for an entire year. Other new projects, such as Moscow's Rhizome, express similar forms of private industry.
2muchachos: "A Forest Is Not What It Seems" (Cherepovets, FFM20)
2muchachos, based in the town of Cherepovets , turn the crackle and rustle of a tape-music aesthetic into the soundtrack for small-scale botanical bustle.
Sugar God: "Amanzi" (Moscow, FFM19)
Sugar God (Evgeny Pozdnyakov, Moscow): "I've tried to create the atmosphere of being in outer space, or of a bird's flight. It's a combination of romantic solitude and nostalgia"
Empty Patterns: Far from Here (Cherepovets, FFM8)
"As I was writing these Empty Patterns tracks, I imagined all kinds of empty buildings to myself. They included large and vacuous halls, in the center of which a gramophone was playing..."
Art Electronix: Partly Broken (Kryvyi Rih FFM6)
Art Electronix (Krivoi Rog, Ukraine): "In most cases, our compositions are made from collages of aging, defective sounds - together with old-school drum machine beats, all in the true Detroit spirit."
