Beyond Convention: Andrei Oid, 130 Vespa, Crossparty, and Miyuki
Andrei Oid is a Riga-born exponent of ambient and minimal techno. He expresses distaste for the aesthetic and audiences of mainstream music. This flight from convention soon becomes dramatic.
From Shore to Distant Shore: The V-ROX Festival 2013 (Part Two)
As the V-ROX Festival gets underway in Vladivostok, rock bands from around Russia come together - in a city that's maximally distant from the capital. Issues of geography come quickly to the fore.
Some Gallows Humor: Antethic, Loveburger, Crossparty, and the 87
Two synthpop outfits joke about the unsuitability of easygoing optimism for Slavic lands. Over time, though, the ability to maintain an upbeat worldview becomes profoundly subversive.
Peace and Destruction: Skajite Michilu, S-Flab, HAARPS, and Crossparty
Emerging from distant Yakutsk, some glitchy instrumentals advertise themselves as a form of hypnosis. Other simultaneous publications, however, give way to a more fatalistic view of isolation.
The Music of Eternal, Frosty Fields: Kött, Crossparty, Onego, and Monokle
Three publications from St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, and Krasnodar all display romantic faith in northern nature or the cosmos, even - as an alternative to modernity. From Vladivostok come some much darker sounds.
From Behind Closed Doors: KDIMB, Motorama, Crossparty, and Punk TV
Three of these projects epitomize a very English melancholy or turn instead to the dark and fuzzy registers of witch-house. The fourth locks itself in a bathroom until somebody starts writing music.
