Look guys, I’ve got to let you in on something. I’m having terrible trouble finding interesting new Russian bands that aren’t aligned with various strains of far right politics. So even though you’ve all heard of Pussy Riot already, tonight Russia will be represented by their confrontational, gloriously sarcastic and grimly funny song Chaika, which always deserves another spin! Slovakia are less of a problem and so I have for you some beautiful, delicate ambient pop which by Fallgrapp.
Chaika – Pussy Riot [Audio revolution with dance routines and jokes. Please remember to turn on your subtitles]
Vlasy – Fallgrapp [Slightly dancey, delicate ambient pop that is something to do with hair]
