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.
Distant Suns: Pianoboy, Internet Sushi, Thy Lankasters & Crimson Butterfly
Three new recordings make direct reference to Japanese history and habits. A distant nation fuels dreams of some alternative to local reality. The more actuality disappoints, the further desire travels from home.
Songs of Strength and Simplicity: Five New LPs from Sketis Music
Five new albums from the Moscow folk label Sketis manage to interweave a wealth of different times and traditions. Those linkages grow in importance as society refuses to show the same inclusiveness.
We Hid in Dark Places: OBGON, Cassiopeia, Miyuki, and Gidropony
Across the varied contexts of cyberpunk narratives, trash TV, driving Moscow techno, and religious satire runs a common theme. The value of humility.
Distant Stars: K.A.T.Y.A., Cricket Captains, Shuma, and Misha Mishenko
As a number of Russian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian artists consider their future plans, it transpires that the most hopeful songs grow from the greatest failures. Frustrations breed aspirations.
Ancient Melodies for Today's Digital Communities: Ored Recordings
Although small, the town of Nalchik in southern Russia lies in a vitally important region. It sits at the bottom of the Caucasus Mountains, not far from Beslan. Here we find Ored Recordings.
Endless April: Oleg Kostrow, Secret Avenue, Inna Pivars, & Respublika Palina
In four new recordings from Russia and Belarus, thoughts of the future predominate. As tomorrow looks unpredictable, childhood and adolescence gain a special importance.
Amity: Wednesday Morning, Young Adults, Kate in the Box & Platya za 130
Two all-female Russian outfits sing of human relations with bittersweet humor. Placed together with other releases this week, their knowing smiles become an overarching social skepticism.
Amid a Crowd of Stars: The "I MIRACLE" Album from Ezhevika (Minsk)
The Belarusian label Ezhevika has just published a compilation album, "I MIRACLE." It gathers nineteen recordings from towns both near and far; together the tracks create a workplace philosophy.
Memories: Dzierzynski Bitz, Deti Picasso, Crossworlds, and Radif Kashapov
From Kiev, Yerevan, Moscow, and Kazan, a range of new publications all turn to distant objects of desire. Whether that distance is temporal or spatial, it always implies dissatisfaction with the present.
