Olga Glazova: The Quiet Sound of Something Absent
Olga Glazova is from St. Petersburg and a professional gusli player of growing repute. Her chosen instrument, responsible for a quintessentially Russian and supposedly pre-urban sound, is a plucked-string harp. The gusli's roots stretch back to the lyre of ancient Greece...
Firestorms on a Wounded Landscape: Ivan Erofeev and Zavoloka
Recent industrial publications from Kiev (via Vienna) and Moscow (via Omsk) juxtapose a factory-floor aesthetic with regional, chronically ailing networks
Two Teachers, Shoulder to Shoulder: Anton Maskeliade and Valotihkuu
New publications from Anton Maskeliade and Valotihkuu have a pedagogical intent. The former artist is actually a teacher; the latter hopes to champion the importance of noiseless humility.
Solo: Arizona Dream, A. Zaitsev, Sweet Mountains, Vejopatis & Giriu Dvasios
A range of new electronic recordings from Russia and Lithuania find increasing appeal in solitude. Belief and ideals both need seclusion.
Fantasia versus Nothing: Smokey Hill, Delete, Sotus, Honey & Heavenchord
Four days after teachers in Dagestan were told their job has no inherent worth, various new recordings investigate fantasy and (absolutely) nothing.
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.
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?
Either Faith or Good Works: Ales Tsurko, AY, Equinox Flower, and Chitoon
New electronic and electroacoustic recordings from Russia and Belarus speak in doubting terms about the near future. Should one turn to faith––or good deeds?
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.
