RUSSIAN SHOEGAZE

AEROFALL 

(Rostov_on_Don) Label: Hands and Moment When I thought about making this playlist the first name that came to mind was the band of Yana Komeshko (vocals-guitar), Vladimir Karpov (guitar), Valery Kalkutin (bass) & George Komshin (drums). The band meets all the requirements of experimentation that have enriched rock in the last decades. The recipe is complicated but the result is magnificent: a pinch of the classic Russian coldwave, seasoned with a refined post-punk, a touch of psychedelia, and all wrapped up in Yana’s masterful whispers, Vladimir’s distorted guitars and the defined and structured rhythm in the bass and the drums. The attractive clammy and velveteen sound of the shoegaze is then transformed into something sublime.


PINKSHINYULTRABLAST 

(Saint Petersburg) Label:  Pinkshinyultrablast is Lyubov (vocals), Roman (Guitarist),  Igor (bass), Sergey (drums) &  Rustam (synths). Maybe the russian shoegaze band with most international projection. The evolution of the band from the dense and electric shoegaze, to a more eclectic and electronic sound has not meant a loss of personality or freshness, but a natural enrichment of sound, giving it a wider and more contemporary shape and coverage.


NEONIC SUNDRIVE

(Moscow) Their debut album “Lie Paradise” will be released soon . The singleI Can’t See Your Eyes’ weaves indie, shoegaze and noise pop sounds in equal parts with an attractive vocal combination. Listening previous jobs is appreciated a great amalgam of sounds and styles, from punk and noise rock drums and guitars, to Pop and shoegaze vocals. Even they dared to cover to ‘The Jesus and Mary Chain’ giving a personal and attractive touch to ‘In a Hole’. It’s really worth take a listen.


SHOE SHINE SIX

(Yekaterinburg) The “grungegaze” band Shoe Shine Six is recording a new album. Their album ‘Sunday’, published in January, moves in an electric balance between post-punk and shoegaze. ‘Sunday’ has received excellent opinions from the specialized blogs and reviewers


Акульи Слёзы (SHARKS TEARS)

(Ufa, Bashkortostan) The album debut is entitled In The Museum of my Memory’, released 26 april 2018, hardly four months after they managed to give their first gig. Ethereal Shoegaze. Soft, fluid, personal and enveloping sound, in the purest slowdive style. Hypnotic and fantastic voice wrapped in perfectly linked guitars  catch your attention and feeling from start to finish.


VVAIT 

(Vorónezh, Chernozemie) Shoegaze since 2014. VVAIT is Yegor (bass & vocals), Kurt (guitar) and Alex (drums). They released their S/T 5-track album in June 2015.  A bouquet of songs well structured in the shoegaze style of the 90s. Shiny Shoegaze, sometimes opaque, with that cloudy sound that hooks. Their last two songs are ‘hypnology’ included in The Pop Underground Vol​.​1 Comp. and ‘Serpentine’ included in The Pop Underground Vol. 2: WIintergaze by pow! pow kids


SOUNDS OF SPUTNIK

(Moscow) Label:   Moon Sounds RecordsSounds of Sputnik is Roman Kalitkin, Oleg Mezherovsky, Oleg Luzhetsky, Dmitriy Bobrinev, Anastasia Berezovskaya, Almaz Gaifutdinov (and Shauna McLarnon on vocals for studio recordings).  There are fibers of an affordable post-rock without stridency, harmonious, interspersed with dream pop and the most recognizable and appreciated shoegaze in the warp of their music. The band is enriched in different collaborations in a simbiosis  with the Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma (Shauna McLarnon & Alexander Kretov).


(Samara) Reverberation guitars  and sad lyrics in waves of noise pop and shoegaze.  The drums take center stage in some of the tracks, which, far from saturating the sound, give a fluid and decisive rhythm. Self-title album released 1 June 2018.


LIFE ON VENUS

(Samara) Life on Venus is a shoegaze / dreamgaze quintet based in Samara, the sixth most populated city in Russia, to the banks of the Volga river. Melancholic lyrics run in a deliberated dreamgaze soundscape, and are interspersed with the cadence of the shoegaze . The vocals lull in a subtle and harmonic way through a melding of guitars, synths and drums in perfect harmony.. Albums: Distant Lights (march 2016) and Encounters (march 2017)


LVPRK

(Rostov-on-Don) The original creativity of the band mix a family of noisy styles (shoegaze, post punk and garage) immersed in the purest sound of the cavernous 80. However, in every track a style stands loudly out above the others making difficult a specific definition of the band. We are left with their ‘Shoegarage’ tag, but without forgetting the post punk stream flowing through all their music.


BLANKENBERGE

(Saint Petersburg) Blankemberge’s ethereal electric waves are made by Yana Guselnikova (vocals), Daniil Levshin (guitar, synth), Dmitriy Marakov (bass), Daian Aiziatov (guitar) and Sergey Vorontsov (drums). Their first S/T EP released on 12 March 2016 let understand the genius of their debut album Radiogaze digitally released June 2017, whose release in vynil iscoming soon via Switzerland-based label Elusive Sound. Pure shoegaze.


NOIR FOR RACHEL 

(Ishim) Noir for Rachel echoes emanates from the sources of the most evolved cold&dark wave that has characterized Russian underground scene for years. Their incisive guitars, the accelerated rhythm of the bass, the stubborn accompaniment of the drums provide the sense the iconoclastic tracks of the bands. Darkgaze is the word.


PAPER WOUNDS

(Saint Petersburg) Paper Wounds is a quartet of melancholic melodies and electric sound rooted in the early shoegaze of the 80s. The guitars adopt a decisive protagonism, without drowning the harmonic structure of the ensemble. The voices circulate with great beauty, with fluidity, giving strength to each track.


YOUR FRIENDS POLYMERS

(Samara) The band published the album ‘v chuzhoi strane’ (‘in a foreign country’)’ a few days before the end of 2017, being one of the highest quality and beautiful dreampop / shoegaze releases of the year. Track by track the album is relaxing, at the same time intense, and of extraordinary beauty. It reminds bands as the australian ‘Lowtide’. The vocal quality supposes an indispensable asset, a decisive accompaniment in the result of guitars that sail with a well defined and harmonious course. Highly recommended.


SHIMMERANCE

(Moscow) The band was born in late 2016. The music of Shimmerance is a beautiful contradiction, making possible the dreamgaze, allocating the rhythm and the cadence of the dreampop with the incisive noise of the distorted guitars of shoegaze. Brilliant.

From ‘Satan Is a Farmer’ to ‘True Love Will Find You in the End’ / Duncan McKnight

In february  2018 Santa Rosa Records, based in San Marcos, Texas, has re-released “Satan is a Farmer”, by The Flaming Banshees (that is to say Duncan McKnight & Iain Ross), a fantasticly unorthodox and experimental psych album originally published in 2008 via False Apostle Records when the duo were living in Berlin. In the album is noticed inmediatly the genius -through different layers of sound- superimposing new wave details and neo psychedelic glows in ‘1000 days of sleep’, a intense track where the cadence, the rhythm and the voice of Duncan McKnight remember the feeling of bands like ‘Echo and the Bunnymen’. The album -with a great deal of originality- goes through the puriest psych-folk sound in ‘If You Love Somebody’ with strokes that caress reminiscences of bands in the style of The Zombies, going up to get the most disturbing sound of ‘The Stooges’ in ‘Skeleton Cabaret’, till reach the sensitivity of ‘The Velvet Underground’ that appears in “Train Back Home” and “Rick Was Right”, the final track of the EP.

Duncan McKnight is as well the leader of The Virgin Tongues, creators of inspirational post-punk and neo-psych daydreams as ‘Six Feet Underground’, ‘The Light’ and ‘Fugitive’.

Duncan Mcknight, based in Yucca Valley, CA, formed a new project with Brandon Williams and Shaun Tidwell called Dante Esperanza. The band released  in 2017 the album-cassette ‘Highway Diamond’ via  Spiderchild Records

At the same time and nowdays he carries out a solo project inmersed in a personal and modern concept of psych-folk sounds.

Duncan McKnight released Daniel Johnston’s ‘True Love Will Find You in the End’ on Santa Rosa Records May 13th, 2018. New EP will be out this summer.

A noisy, dark, and enlightening urban therapy – Single “Humdrum” by OS NU

SINGLE PREMIERE

The British/Danish outfit based in Berlin formerly known as ‘Astral Tide‘ have changed their name to ‘OS NU‘. In their new form the British Matthew Potter (bass, vocals, engineering) & Mark Yeoman (guitars, vocals, synth, engineering), and the Danish Jonas Duus (drums, production) find an amazing combination, an agitated and spiky post-punk sound with a high dose of electronic pulse, a pinch of psych and a new wave atmosphere that electrifies the music in a climax of hollow and haunting industrial soundscapes.

The amazing result of this mixture (they call ‘drum and gaze’), is the single “Humdrum”, a post-punk sound without dissimulation, but with a peripheral melody that leads to unexpected details with a nod towards the most incisive edge of experimental rock. The punk freshness of the single gives it naturalness, but at the same time the electronic warp that underlies the entire track endows it with maturity and credibility, giving continuity to a consistent, energetic and arranged tune.

In the lyrics the Berliner band keep the essence of the post-punk idea, claiming for the individual against social machinery that anguishes the singularity of the individual.

Out as a digital release on 16.03, OS NU’s single “Humdrum” moves the listener into a showcase of noisy, dark, and enlightening urban therapy.

Magic Flight Launch Box is an iconoclastic and experimental sound and visual experience, an implosion of shoegaze, psych, jazz, grunge, spoken lyrics,  in a hypnotic wave of intimate swirling, twisting around fuzzy and electric whispers. Simply brilliant.

Magic Flight Launch Box is not only  music  and  sound is Visual  and art too.
