Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know: Fancy Music's Lermontov LP
Moscow's Fancy Music has just released a lengthy compilation album, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of romantic poet Mikhail Lermontov (1814-1841)
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.
Tales of Solitude: Inna Zhelannaia, Naadya, Evgeny Grinko, and Megapolis
Four new releases from Moscow artists look askance at the massed workings of modernity. As a result, songs of retrospection, solitude, and even isolation have an increasing appeal.
Obscurum Per Obscurius: The 2014 Schilling Festival (Estonia)
This year's Schilling Festival is about to start in Estonia. There's a special overlap between the festival's philosophy and the worldview of several Estonian bands taking part. Ideals and actuality coincide.
Dadaisme: "Dasein Mosaic" (Togliatti and Moscow, FFM31)
Our new recording from Dadaisme sports a weighty philosophical concept. Entitled "Dasein Mosaic," it is inspired by Heidegger's notion of "Dasein." Put simply, "Mosaic" is directly informed by a view of existence or being that's split between two states: selfhood and society.
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.
Misha Mishenko and Alwayslate: "In Pursuit of Light/Chapter" (FFM26/27)
"When I compose, I simply turn off my brain and surrender to a flight of fancy. It's something elusive. It happens all of a sudden, spontaneously... it's what you might call 'improvisation of the heart and soul.'"
Happy55: "A Magic Word" (Voronezh, FFM25)
Happy55 are a jazz trio from the southern industrial city of Voronezh. Against that backdrop, and the weight of ailing history, these gifted performers find much value in improvisation and spontaneity.
Vihrea: "Gorenje" (Veliky Novgorod, FFM22)
Margarita Popova, best known for her project "Chaos in Heathrow," releases a new EP under a second stage-name. A related theme of social role-playing runs through all five of these songs.
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.
