it s time for another 7- foot-stomping bonanza from rocafort records, digging deep into the rich new orleans repertoire of the carbo family. all brothers were heavily involved in the 60s crescent city funk scene, so tight and on the one that it s easy to understand why hank suspects a bit of plagiarism from the godfather himself.

moscow is the city full of posh decorations. like a black hole, it’s gorging clouds of chaotic ideas. madly fast, it’s flooded with shallow hippies, jealous dealers and susceptible artists. everyone desires to have its own piece of luck, looking for the shortest way to some easy life. most of the nomads arrive from the capital suburbs and other big cities of immensely corrupted russia. everyone can tell a tale from outskirt. senseless rivalry and art falsity together make the special demands: your tale has to amaze, to inculcate; you must do something notable, freaky one and truthful. to dare to let it. there are no any rules. your voice has no matter, the only important is a sales skill. the local scene is tired of identical copying outside world’s standards. thereby the more your approach is unacceptable, the more valued is it. but the more it’s valued, the faster it will depreciate. the glossy shell with cheap content is the way to survive in such a tight plexus of cruel love, substance abuse and electronic music.

pussy mothers is the behaviour of a cross-continental two piece from scotland and down under: formed by waving not drowning. chasing percussions, vocal athletics and hand claps concocted into a platter of disco junk funk and early hip hop rhythms, the number 1 ep took shape in glasgow s tenement flats and came to life through a spaced-out echo party held at green door studios.

the goal with supernova was to look back to the disco era but with a synth heavy and altogether more cosmic twist. alex is a big fun of modern russian classical music composing style. also he was inspired by early english progressive scene (yes, elo etc). this is why u-kas melodic lines are long and not so straight sometimes. and oleg is musically far from academic school and prefers zappa, early german electronic and psychedelic krautrock etc.
