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.
Discreet Stanzas: Anton Malinen, Grebenshchik, Gaya Marina & "Bo i Bro"
Four new acoustic releases have roots in very diverse towns, all the way from Magadan to Kharkiv. What they share is a desire to hide from crude actuality.

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?

Quiet Introspection versus Outer Space: Noraus, Feizah, AIST, and Gxitt
New instrumental or hypnagogic recordings from Naberezhnye Chelny, Ulan-Ude, Moscow, and Dnipropetrovsk are all dedicated to silence. Dreamers need peace and quiet.
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.
