The final track on the album My Kargyraa was recently performed as a live version at the Sziget 2018 festival in Hungary earlier this month, this being approximately a minute shorter than the studio version on the LP.

Longer stay readers may have forgotten the band name Hartyga as it was back in 2016 they last featured – though will be likely to immediately recollect the traditional Tuvan throat singing of Nachyn Choreve.

Наадя

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.

Continuing to develop their profile in the Russian rock scene, regularly supporting international touring bands as well as headlining their own tour schedule, Mirrorland can’t help but raise their profile more broadly internationally.

Winter Kingdom, from the forthcoming album, serves a decent representation of their music as an introduction with its powerful melodies and highly impressive delivery.

VEiiLA – Mantra – Audio

The Russian gothic-spire duo VEiiLA released the LP Dive on the 7th.

The haunting beauty of the vocal of Vif Nütefills, akin to a Brocken spectre, captivates the attention whilst two synths wrap silky webs around the listener as the electro-drums manipulated by Bes Eiredt fasten the listener in wet leather which dries around the wrists, leaving the audience writhing in tightly bound ecstasy.

The six track album (available on bandcamp) is best heard in a echoing dimly lit dungeon with candles dripping across the torso.

The third song is the six and just over a third minutes – Mantra and my pick of the release.
