Sunrise begins in Omsk in 1990.Their first records sounds very naive, but after some years and changes in the band, music had the elements of progressive rock and Sunrise become really cult rock band in Siberia of the 90’s but leader Maks Bushin died in 2001 in the age of 27.
“Mathematics of harmony” stay forever classic of siberian prog and will exellent finding for collectors from other countries.
In the late 80’s several young members of this group were rehearsing in Moscow under a different name name, without particular success, experimenting with extraordinary russian music. But later, after more senior and experienced bass player, big fan of Joy Division and Swans, had joined them, they have changed their name, and found their own style, dark industrial post-punk with english lyrics.
They became a part of the “Moscow rock laboratory”, and in 1991 they have recorded their only album “Berlin metro”. One year later it was released on vinyl.
The vinyl edition includes eight songs – more complete version of the tape.
Junkyard by Rust (Perm, Russia) was recorded in March 2013 and released 10 of July 2014. It is highly inspired by the sound of oldschool heavy metal and modern stoner rock, combining low heavy riffs, noisy soloing and roaring vocals. Some songs tell their own stories inspired by XX century science fiction and some tell about simple questions and problems that surrounds us every day of our life. Sometimes our life is full of junk and music is one of the things that helps to make it back to normal.
At the time of composing the album «The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath» the group «Aeolian Harp» (Moscow) consisted of one person — Serge Grigor’ev (the Cheshire Cat) who had written and recorded all the instrumental parts. The pieces of music were inspired by phantasmagorias created by American writer H. P. Lovecraft. The composition «The White Ship» is based on the song «For Them Who Are Left in Mordor» written by Maria «Eswit» Severskaya (music) and Alexandr Alexeev (lyrics). The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by S. Grigor’ev during the period from 2000 to 2006 in his home studio.

The band’s sound was inspired by the atmosphere of island life, as well as an attempt to dispel the dreary atmosphere of urban everyday life and make a note of positivity in the life of a big metropolis. A bass player did spent part of his childhood on the island called “Russian” and we love the feelings that cause us to the island, the ocean and wildlife. The group’s music is a breath of summer in the country of eternal cold.
Long and purposeful searches for inspiration usually give no result.
When you are looking for inspiration for too long and very purposeful, it usually doesn’t come.
And only when you threw up, when your hands fell down – then your eyes and ears are opening. You begin to notice the sounds of: nearby road with buses and sirens, noise of the river, on which’s bank you live, how the elevator stops and how the water is boiling in your kettle… lots of sounds, which are usual and so native.
We are sharing the atmosphere what is arround us with you. It’s our house, maybe not the best in the world, but still ours.
Every song is we: our homes, our minds, emotions, aims, close people, friends, points of view, favorite food, good days, bad days and everything that makes us who we are.
How did we make this album?
Our work was totally impulsive, we had only one condition: recording of every track must last less than 6 hours.
That’s why on every rec-session we haven’t done more than a one take of one riff. Every track has been recorded from one take, without trainings and repetitions. And the quantity of our messes is a proof. We aren’t shy or scared about it – we are proud of it.
We were lucky, because music was coming easy, the only thing we needed is to push “rec” button in the right time and stop when it needed. Something we denied in the beginning, something we have made to perfection – and threw it out, also there were things that we weren’t able to write – we could dedicate our lives to those recordings and it would be the greatest pleasure for us, but would we do this for sure?
I liked to work on this release. It was the situation when we have two opposite points of view which are creating the third, completely new point of view on everything. That’s how it happened – seems like by an accident, but actually it wasn’t. I allowed myself to give freedom to me, my vision, imagination. When improvisation is modified and rerecorded – it isn’t improvisation anymore, simply because it’s not what you have done in the beginning, when you put your soul in it. At some moment, when I listened to our songs in 100th, or 1000th time, I even can’t remember, but at this moment I felt that even an easy riff, what doesn’t need a pro-techniques of performance or some weird sounding – they give a feedback to you. And I still feel this feedback every time I listen to this music. Hope you will feel it too.
Thanks to everyone who I know! And great thanks to Anton!
For long years of knowing each other Outrock is our first work together. Before everything was kind of homemade jam-sessions, or plans of creating something together. I accept it as a splash of energy, that has been growing in us for years. Everything was by an accident, one of our jam-sessions had grown up to a song that we named Road, and what have done after, you can easily listen above
It’s just spectacular that we have found understanding and none of our songs hasn’t become an argue…
We have listened to each other, sometimes we understood each other without words and sometimes we didn’t understand each other at all…
I want to say “thank you” to all, who have taken part in creation of this album and influenced on it. Relatives, friends, everyone who listened to this before publication and somehow gave comments to it.
Here is “dlinnye pesni priyatnye sluhu”, the debut work by “ухушуху” (uhushuhu), a side-project of Russian creative association «Утроворту» (Utrovortu). The title is Russian “длинные песни приятные слуху” which means “long songs pleasant for hearing” in English.
These three tracks present a journey through structures and layers contained in sound envelope of drone and ambient. Find there sound anomalies, unsystematic wanderings in shaky unpredictable areas, vague rustles and seeming echoes, spaces of various density, mood and nature, secret dead ends, spontaneous sound making and labyrinths closed in themselves.
“Between shadows of secular trees, behind the bushes wide spread, washed by a soft water of spring rains, lies a small glade, well hidden from the eyes of officious humans. There is a beautiful flower in the middle of the glade; Adonis is its name, grown by the warmth of a tender sun. Vast forests protect it from all harm, from any possible damage or intervention. A huge owl guards its sleep, salamander from the nearby pool sings it lullabies, carrying about its eternal blossom. Everything around is bound in harmony, creating an eternal circle of life, living on, existing by indestructible laws.
“Uhushuhuuuuuuuuuu”,- the owl shouts commanding trees and bushes, mushrooms and flowers, springs and pools, animals and insects to join in a spellbinding dance of nature. The stream of time is different here, there is nowhere to rush, and there is no plan or schedule to meet; tranquility and conciliation are key words to exploit. Russian based musicians that bring to our consideration their three “Long Songs Pleasant for Hearing” prone to obey this call as well and try to describe the natural macrocosm by connecting three habitats – “Surface”, “Underwater” and “Underground”. And what can be a better tool to tell such a story rather than a circularity of drone ambient music.
The album opens with the “Surface”, a long composition of 24 minutes run where the listener sinks inside a constant progressive loop. A picture drawn by the artist reminds me of colorful fractals of a kaleidoscope; they roll over and over again creating intricate visions having a highly hypnotic influence. After listening to this track for a dozen of times I start to distinguish few sub-loops while the music becomes more and more complex within each of them. Furthermore, each of them has its own set of special effects, whether those are different cracks and clicks or some kind of background rustle, electronic pulses or soft echoed voices, all of them create unforgettable patterns. A gentle percussive beat guides the main melody with a constant tempo during the whole running time inserting a bit of a tribal atmosphere, an atmosphere of a ritualistic worshiping of Mother Nature. Bit by bit, the colors become denser, become saturated with strength from the roots of centennial trees, with a bitter taste of a fertile soil, with a solar energy of beneficial sun. Myriads of insects and birds fill the air with their laudatory songs enjoying ambrosial blossoming of the mighty Adonis.
A transition between the “Surface” and the “Underwater” is very smooth and the effect brought by this composition definitely matches with its name. The atmosphere becomes a little bit darker; the half-tones transform into turquoise and light blue colors corresponding with a diving into refreshing waters of a river or a lake. Different underwater dwellers scurry around creating small vortexes, playing with scattered blinks of light. Another loop based melody circulates over and over again enveloping a bodiless spirit of mine by its meditative canvas.
If you are still alive and survived two previous tracks without immersing into nothingness, this is the right moment to experience an “Underground” journey as well. The drone becomes much denser and monotonous operating with tensions more than with diversity of sound. A buzzing effect pierces through the whole track creating some kind of an energy flow effect, like its millions of energy streams flow through the soil distributing a “life source” between all the creatures upside. Slow and steady the track fades away but the listener stays hypnotized until the very last second.
77 copies of “Longs Songs Pleasant for Hearing” were pressed and I believe that it is far from being enough. Even when the music is not as polished as the creations of Steve Roach or professionally constructed like I am used to hear from Troum, the sound of this record is clean and sincere in its own way. There are few moments in which the loops and drones were too overextended, but the spirits of nature, water and soil drove the atmosphere forward. Their voices are very strong in each of us who explore the colorful world of ambient music. Therefore, I suggest you to start hugging trees around, listen to the tunes of Uhushuhu and join the army of the great OWL. I will meet you on the other side.
