Quixotic Contradictions: Vihrea, Alex Kelman, Siba.Pro, and Antrru
Four new recordings from Siberia, Karelia and Saint Petersburg try to contradict actuality with unique daydreams and fantasies. Not all of them work.
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 Broader Expanse: Aya with Us, Ne Tvoe Delo, ÁGNI & Pomni Imya Svoe
Various recordings this week explore the traditional nature of lyricism in Russian songwriting. History has never made self-realization an easy issue.
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.
Getting There: Lena Kudrina, Kawri's Whisper, Endless Melancholy & Isea N
The theme of time is foregrounded by several new publications, but their authors remain unsure of an ideal outlook: forwards to the future––or back to a superior past?
Sense and Sensibility: Slackers, Red Deer, Ned Hoper & Zhenya Kukoverov
As Russia struggles with economic disarray, four rock recordings across the country ponder the role of songwriting as an alternative expression of "law and order."
Just One Letter: Kobra, Awlnight, Sasha Vinogradova, Mariqa & Armanjazz
A series of new publications from St. Petersburg, Moscow, and provincial Belarus all give thought to the slimmest of differences between matters "cosmic and comic."
Improvisation: Artemiev, A. Toymintseva, M. Kutskova, and A. Rostotskaya
Four recent publications from solo artists in both Russian jazz and pop music are dedicated to themes of individual effort––and the related risks thereof.
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.
Unvoiced Dreams: Sirotkin, Artek Elektronika, The Tairyfale, Kim & Buran
As a series of new recordings take inspiration from the melancholy romance of Soviet pop music, the question arises: what about tomorrow?
