The Russian drone project Dark Voice Of Angelique released the LP Noire on the 14th.

Dark Voice Of Angelique - They

Dark Voice Of Angelique

Noire (available on bandcamp) whilst still of dark cloud, is of less dystopian menace than music previously featured.

The nine tracks are less compacted and resultingly afford for the listener to more readily explore the melodies and nuances of the roughly fifty six minutes album as the multifarious layering of electronica, synthesised instruments and vocal flows through the room.

The fourth composition and my pick of the release is the just over six minutes – They.

The Russian dream-wave band Наадя (Naadia) have regularly appeared since their introduction in 2016.

Наадя (Naadia) - Спутник (Satellite)


Recorded in live performance in Moscow and of more punctuated countenance than music of theirs more usually featured.

Спутник (Satellite) revolves around a skittish electronica through which the scintillating voice of Надежда Грицкевич (Nadya Griskiewicz) echoes as though imploring from a buried sarcophagus.

Deeply rooted in Russian and Danish folklore the nine track album is a rich blend of mutilayered instrumentation and distinctive vocal of foreboding intensity which encases the room in a brooding, bewitching, oppressive atmosphere from which the listener has no desire to escape.

The first of the nine tracks is Urheimat.

Женя Куковеров – (Zhenya Kukoverov)

The latest LP to be released – Тайный Оптимист (Secret Optimist) – available on bandcamp – is a fourteen track, roughly one hour and four minutes, journey in which the audience senses they themselves are in danger of becoming the Mad Hatter.

While individual songs, typically running to over four minutes each, are not individually overladen with psychotropics it is the accumulation of the collection of quiet hallucinogen which leaves the mind forming its own fantastical parallel existence.

The fifth song is В саду (In The Garden).
