Zimne - Saharnaya Golova (2017)
Highly Recommended!

Siberian electronic prodigy, duo Zimne, came back with their brand new album, breaking a two year silence. If you guys followed our discovery compilation series you might have already know them by their stunning trip-hop track “Sto Let” on Uvarious Artists VOL.4

These guys is a perfect example of a DIY band.  Natasha Shilova‘s refined vocal lines, conceptual and sophisticated artwork and skilled sound production by Anton Kremarenko, makes this duo stand out in trip-hop / downtempo genre diversity.

New album is titled “Saharnaya Golova” (Sugar Head), there are four guest vocalists / musicians on a record.

A split track with The Owl was presented last year, the rest are new: a quite experimental work “Adele” with Ptitsami, ambient pop song “Trip” with Andrey Khrapov and chillwave-ish track “More” with Hale De Mars.

Anton Kremarenko not only makes great music production, but is an author of all the lyrics on the album. I wish you guys could understand Russian, because words in these songs are absolutely poetic and elegant as if it was written by a woman. 

“Our main literary influences come from the Silver Age of Russian poetry. We mean people such as Marina Tsvetaeva, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and [later, kindred spirits] like Bella Akhmadulina.” 

I do suggest you guys to go and buy this album for as little as $1,70 or more and support musicians to keep’em creating some more masterpieces in the future.

Album mark is 8/10, favourite track is “Nimb”.

polnalyubvi – V (2017)

polnalyubvi

On 20 Sept. 17 year old folk singer-songwriter Marina Demeschenko aka polnalyubvi from St. Petersburg, released her debut album “V”. There are seven utterly beautiful and transparent baroque pop acoustic songs on this album. Marina’s voice is very tender and clean. Deep poetry, gentle yet heartbreaking purity brings some bittersweet air into her music. Highly recommended!

 Глубокая поэзия, чистота и музыка, полная сладостно-горького настроения. Я уверен, что ты, как и я сам, уже давно искал/а это.

Kubrick’s Cube – Odissey

Odissey by Kubrick's Cube cover | Ultra Vague

 

Kubrick’s Cube is a project born from one shared idea of 10 Moscow-based musicians: to erase the notion that music is something that can be categorised. For them, music has evolved beyond genres and styles, and with the dawn of electronics beyond even the studio/ live split.

«This project has a single goal — to erase the standard divisions between musical formats. We would like to show that all notions of genre and style are already outmoded. The line between electronic and ‘live’ sound has likewise faded away. 

It’s bloody fantastic.
Jonny Hunter Muzik Dizcovery

We strive — as a result of those claims — to combine incompatible elements and go in search of new sonic territories. Kubrick’s Cube is a collection of ten musicians, each of whom has his own vision and understanding of music.»

The imagery of novelty as vaguely discerned distance reappears.

 

It ends up as an utterly stark-raving mad dive through every electronic style that’s mattered in the last few years, while tearing strips from jazz, rock and pop along the way. At the same time, it carries all this with a distinctly fresh and unique style the likes of which will only be matched by a handful of releases this year. – John Hunter
