Matvey Tarchutkin An awesome collection from Russian underground shoegazers, catchy tunes and noisy pastel guitar riffs. You don't need to speak the language, since, for the most part, you can't make out the words through those dreamy sound walls anyway!
Favourite track: *цвет* - раз

Benjamin Pelletier Reminiscent of Кино́ or Король и Шут mixed with the smell of gasoline from a garage somewhere in North America. This is a cohesive compilation, with each track carrying its own weight and earning its keep. Favorite track: baltika 9.

Freulein Anita Droney guitars and dreamy soundscapes. Be ready to become dazed by having an enjoyable peek into the sound of the Russian Pop Underground. Favorite track: you are not unique.

Josh Augustin I won't pretend to know much (or anything, for that matter) about the Russian underground lo-fi shoegaze/psychadelic/garage pop scene, but this release sounds awesome and I would highly recommend it. Favorite track: purplehead (acid demo).
