Distant Storms: Holy Palms, Boris Grim, Pia Fraus & Show Me a Dinosaur
Either through the traditions of shoegaze or the older conventions of nocturnal and stellar imagery, four recordings look back towards a purportedly "Eurasian" form of solitude.
Nowhere to Play: Glintshake, WLVS, Mooncake, & Show Me a Dinosaur
As socioeconomic realia impinge more and more upon private experience, the call for both difference and dignified dreaming sounds louder.
Twisting and Turning: Another Mask, Yawn Hic, WLVS, and Rivoli
Two rock bands from Samara join philosophical forces with new recordings from Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. Taken together, these four outfits fashion a worldview to counter cocky "progression."
Motion: Appolinaria Lovegood, Hmot, Valotihkuu, and Hamlet His Highness
Empty realms, such as the forests of Karelia, have differing meanings for these artists. Nonetheless, a shared conviction transpires that movement into nothingness at least symbolizes potential.
Roundelay: Russian Melodies (Samara, FFM4)
In the city of Samara is a female choir led by Dmitrii Kolevatykh: Roundelay. This substantial, shifting lineup of young women creates a sound unique within modern Russian music.
An Intuitive Gameplan: Roundelay, Cassiopeja, Vlad Veleev, and Wire Fish
As these performers list the professional or political obstacles facing their work, a nostalgia develops for intuitive, pre-adult experience. Those earliest years harbored some nameless values.
A Grand Minorism: Xuman, Mendream, VLNY, and Powder! Go Away
A number of publications this week display an interesting tension between grand romance and self-deprecation. By understating their heartfelt values, these artists stress a stubborn fidelity to a fading cause.
Hidden: Ales Tsurko, Appolinaria Lovegood, Blotto Tapa, and J Milto
Electronic and electroacoustic releases from Moscow, Samara, and Minsk pay attention to a range of hidden significances. Some lie within tiny objects, others lurk on the edge of burial sites.
Gallows Humor: Ilosthebalcony, Fanny Kaplan, Kul'tura Kureniia, and TBFW
Four young bands embody a spirit of protest, yet they're unnerved by the feeling that rebellion rarely changes anything. That combination of outrage and anxiety leads to a healthy self-irony.
Flashes of Happiness and Joy: Bajinda, Shyam, Protz, and Legobyte
Four recordings from Kiev, Grodno, Moscow, and Samara speak with fondness about life's simple joys. Divorcing "immaterial" happiness from daily hassles, though, proves to be a considerable challenge.
