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."
From a St. Petersburg studio to provincial Belarus, four new recordings center around the importance of privacy. Personal desire works hard to save itself from the outside world.
Some fantastic animals are used in order to tell a story of romantic escape: star-bound cats, African monkeys, rabbits, and even a praying mantis. Together with a little 1930s' swing, imagination runs wild.
The theme of nostalgia emerges in new recordings from Kiev, Vilnius, and Babruysk (Belarus). Although they initially display a love for UK culture, these musings on the past begin to adopt a locally specific resonance.
