Spring finally pervades our minds and bodies, vital forces wake up from hibernation and prepare to bloom in full power. Just take a look at a concert list for the coming month - at least a couple of gigs every weekend! One of the most important events for us is the traditional COSMONOISE festival, which is going to happen on the Day of Cosmonautics - April 12th. This time it will feature performances by two Moscow-based projects - CISFINITUM and SAL SOLARIS, - who play in St. Petersburg quite rarely. A company for them is provided by the ever-present psycho navigators GOVORIT RADIO "KOSMOS" and the visual magician VJ Yuri Elik. If you're somehow around, try not to miss!
But this is only in a month. And now we have gathered some amount of new releases from local labels, such as Still*Sleep, Eternal Return Records, Infinite Fog Productions, Spina!Rec, Intonema, new album by Rapoon on :retortae: label, reissue of a classical Muslimgauze album on Aquarellist, new releases by Lunar Abyss + Ogni Videniy, Zinc Room, and a bit of second-hand items.
The first distro catalogue update in this year features mostly Russian releases:
- Yaroslavl-based vigilantes Ufa Muzak present the new album by T-Wald, dedicated to Hermann Hesse;
- quite young label Sulfur Flowers expands its catalogue of Russian neo-folk-rock music with a couple of new CDs: Nytt Land (Ylande) and Nightwood Movies;
- if you're more into fluid ambient and textural sound art, take a look at the new albums from Dronarivm and Observatoire labels (as well as some international releases from and/OAR, Unfathomless, Elevator Bath and Winds Maasure Recordings);
- small underground labels - Operator Produkzion, YAOP, Heart-Shaped Box Prod., Ostroga, Frozen Light and Down Elcovka Records stay true to themselves with new small (often handmade) avantgarde, old school and noise editions;
- worth mentioning is the new label from St. Petersburg specializing in dark minimal techno / experimental music - La Notte Di Architetto with three cassette releases. This kind of techno we enjoy indeed!
- plus new recordings from such projects as Lunar Abyss, Stuzha, Monocube, Nigdeniya and more!
Just to remind you - we still have this winter sale where you can order 10 or more items from the disto catalogue
marked with a [-50%]
sign, and have them for half-price. Sale also refers to some items from the rare & used list
(marked green). We'll keep the sale running until next update, approximately in early or mid-March.
