Last month was quite active for the mailorder and we received a lot of interesting new music, both from Russia and abroad!
Worth mentioning are the beautiful cassette releases of a small St. Petersburg-based label Pearly Snowdrift
and the releases of the Moscow-based D.I.Y. label Kill Ego
. Aside from that, COD Noizes
has reissued five classical albums of Six Dead Bulgarians
, both on CDs and tapes, NEN Records
published a couple of new cassettes in outstanding packages, the long-awaited collaboration album of Reutoff
& Deutsch Nepal
has finally arrived, and also we got a big selection of releases from the triumvirate of projects IAMNOTHING / MNL9 / Nigulesugci
performing ambient / noise with Christian Orthodox background.
International scene is presented by the releases from such labels as Nefryt
(Poland, electroacoustic), Liсhterklang
