BountyTweex – Only One Thing – Single Review

BountyTweex is a new Russian dreamwave duo.

Currently there is just the one track around Only One Thing, though I am given to believe a second song will surface next week and an LP later in the year.

The dreamy vocal curls around the listener with its captivating echo while electronica adds a multi-dimensional ever changing backdrop allowing the BountyTweex to deliver a roughly six and a half minutes song in Only One Thing that doesn’t seem in the least excessive, in fact could comfortably hold attention for considerably longer.

News of the future material suggests that amongst it will be songs of faster dance pace and I look forward to hearing what else BountyTweex have tucked away in the locker.

As part of their farewell journey a live shot video of Пацан (Boy) recorded in Moscow.

It is always a sadness to discover bands fading in to the distance though as with many their imprint lays long after their footsteps were laid and I thank OQJAV for doing what they did and look forward to remaining in contact with Вадик Королев (Vadik Korolev), Екатерина Павлова (Elizabeth Pavlova) and Даниил Шайхинуров (Daniel Shaikhinurov) in their new directions of travel.

Able to spring across many stages, Краснознаменная дивизия имени моей бабушки, never seek to make their music of abstraction, rather like a finely tuned orchestration in which each member forms an integral though not overplayed section of the resultant output, leaving the listener sweating profusely though cheering for more. As attested in a recent live performance of Точка (Point) from the LP Кики (Kiki).

Энеона Виток (Eneona Vitok) – Регенерация (Regeneration) – Audio

The Russian lo-fi creator Энеона Виток (Eneona Vitok) released the LP Маршрут построен (Route Calculated) on the 13th.

There is a certain joy to communicating with musicians around the globe as things can be learnt – Маршрут построен is the common phrase on Russian Satnav devices when the route for a journey has been calculated, but rather than learning about Russian SatNav systems you probably opened this post to learn more about the music…

Маршрут построен is an approximately twenty four minutes eight track LP (available via Pomogite Community on bandcamp for either the digital version or the ten track limited run cassette version) – that flows through a psychedelic journey of compositions that hold a fascinating grip on the listener. A haunting soft vocal sweeps through tracks of fuzzy psychotropic keyboard, slippery percussion and whirling guitar.

My selection from the release is the sixth Регенерация (Regeneration), though to not dwell in the full release is to do yourself a disservice.
