Sounds Of Sputnik
Once again, as with the old URL Indie Bands Blog on the first Russian entry, I find myself in a quandary of where to place Russia in the continent category and once again it appears under Asia, simply to due to the relative landmass in Europe and Asia. Of course as previously, the first review is of a Russian outfit is someone sitting in Europe. However, you aren’t reading this to hear about my travails with geo-political and continental boundaries…. Sounds Of Sputnik…
Dim the lights, lie back and gaze-upwards and let Sounds Of Sputnik wend its way into your mind and in a trance you will find yourself floating in the cosmos, what an appropriately named band.
Predominately purely instrumental, the music envelopes the mind in warming bass notes, whilst echoed chords drift lazily across the room captivating the thoughts, while an omnipresent electronic hum adds to the experience of the material, this is not music to hurry, rather to enjoy at leisure and is well worth allowing the music to take over the mind.
