8th October 2010 — Stanislav Vdovin — Countless Efforts
If you don't have a fear of open spaces sit beside on a cloud.
Throw back your head and stare into space. We left autumn city somewhere below with all summer flashbacks.
Sun spots on stone slabs, stems of grass through cracked asphalt — it's all past.
Now the Sun is another star, and infinity rocks to sleep, sings a lullaby.
5th September 2010 — Sleepy Town Manufacture & Unit 21 — It Comes With Nothing
Holy skull! No, we haven't moved for Mexico yet, but we like to treat ourselves with sweet stuff.
We invite you to lick the last album of the duo Sleepy Town Manufacture & Unit 21, thank god they refine sugar for 18 years for two, which means the guarantee of high quality and excellent taste.
«Yumm! This album has light sour taste», — you say. And you're right.
Special recipe of the dish It Comes With Nothing — brewed natural born samples, rich basslines, joyful melodies and (please!) Acid seasonings.
It comes with the mass, sculptured in the form of jolly roger, fresh like it's right away from the grave, and ready to munch.
Bon Appetit, sweet tooth!
Geographical update: the United States share a border with Mexico, so if you don't believe us read the article on Far from Moscow
