OLE LUKKØYE - ZAPARA
Fulldozer Records presents an extended reissue of the significant Russian album of the 90s - Ole Lukkoye "Zapara", originally released on vinyl in 1993 by the label Antrop. Ole Lukkoye does not need a special introduction: the ethno-electronic band from St. Petersburg, which has existed for more than three decades, is well known to all connoisseurs of world music and psychedelia, not only in Russia, but also far beyond. A very special place in the creative heritage of Ole Lukkoye is occupied by the first album "Zapara", recorded in 1993 at the Antrop studio in St. Petersburg. The unique and original sound of the album "Zapara" has absorbed both the influences of the best examples of the 80s darkwave scene and the tunes of various ethnos of the world, as well as the psychedelia of meditative rock and the avant-garde techniques of jazz fusion. The album's magical spirit-lifting atmosphere is enframed by hypnotic recitatives in Russian performed by Boris Bardash and Andrei Lavrinenko. The canonical CD version of the album is supplemented with two previously unreleased bonus tracks: the meditative instrumental "Enfilade" and the first version of the song "Toomze", which was recorded in 1995, but was never included in this form in the eponymous album released a year later.
NOTCHNOI PROSPEKT - DEMOCRACY AND DISCIPLINE
"Democracy and Discipline" is a reissue of the Notchnoi Prospekt album, originally self-released on cassette in 1987. Notchnoi Prospekt was formed in 1985 by Alexei Borisov and Ivan Sokolovsky, both of whom came from an academic field. The band worked in a wide range of styles - from dance synth-pop to post-punk and industrial, becoming one of the most advanced projects of the Soviet underground. In 1987 the band was joined by drummer Sergei Pavlov and by violinist, keyboardist and vocalist Dmitry Kutergin. From that moment Notchnoi Prospekt completely immersed themselves in industrial electronics combined with psychedelia, noise, free improvisation and absurdism. At first, the audience reacted coldly to such experimental music, preferring earlier material of the mid-80s. However, by the end of the decade the situation changed, which allowed the band to tour and perform at various rock and art festivals throughout the USSR, and even to go abroad. After a long break, in 2017, the label Frozen Light released the new album "Polyurythane" - the first Notchnoi Prospekt studio album since 1993. In 2019 the Moscow label Gost Zvuk reissued the 1987 instrumental work "Health Resorts Of The Caucasus" as a double vinyl album. And now, in 2020, the time has come for "Democracy and Discipline"...
THEODOR BASTARD - VOLCH'YA YAGODA
The long-awaited new Theodor Bastard album Volch'ya Yagoda is a major work the band has been working on for the past five years. The multilayered and unpredictable album inherits the band's recognizable multigenre approach where psychedelic trip hop combines with cinematic instrumentals and archaic world music meets modern technological electronics. Theodor Bastard combine Russian texts with glossolalia and shamanic spells as easily as they change instruments on stage. From album to album Theodor Bastard carefully and masterly combine many different exotic and traditional instruments. Volch'ya Yagoda is no exception. The special northern atmosphere of the album is created with Nordic nyckelharpa and jouhikko, primeval flutes created from tree roots and shamanic percussion. And as always, the leading role in the album belongs to the voice of Yana Veva, exciting and bewitching by its deepness. Volch'ya Yagoda takes the listener to the cold and twilight realms of marshy swamps of taiga and mossy tundra, to unexplored places where the earthly plane and the spiritual world are separated only by a very thin ghostly veil. For over twenty years Theodor Bastard have been known for their amazingly serious attitude to the world beyond that very frontier.
THEODOR BASTARD - LIVE IN DOBROLET
The live album "Live In Dobrolet", originally released in 2016 as a bonus CD coming with the special and deluxe vinyl editions of the album "Vetvi", is finally released as a separate edition, following many requests of Theodor Bastard fans. Recorded live at Dobrolet Studio in St. Petersburg in March 2013, "Live In Dobrolet" still remains one of the most significant band's live albums. In addition to the main members of Theodor Bastard - Yana Veva, Fedor Svolotch, Kusas and Andy Vladych - some guest artists took part in the recording: Alia Sagitova (keyboards), Vasil Davletshin (bass), Philipp Barskiy (harp), Vladimir Belov (cello) and Dmitriy Kabanov (theremin). Along with the Theodor Bastard's own compositions the album features a song with the lyrics by Boris Bardash and two cover versions very peculiarly reworked by the band. All tracks are mixed and mastered by Andrei Alyakrinskiy at Dobrolet Studio, recording engineer - Alexander Dokshin. The album is released in limited edition of 140 copies in a 4-panel digipak with ultra-minimalist design. Label: Fulldozer Records. Catalog number: FDCD37. Release date: 01.03.2019.
THEODOR BASTARD - BELOE: HUNTING FOR FIERCE BEASTS (10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
"Beloe: Hunting For Fierce Beasts (10th Anniversary Edition)" is the edited and re-mixed version of the significant album for Theodor Bastard. This version with new improved sound is dedicated to 10 year anniversary of the original album. Originally released on October 27, 2008, the album "Beloe" was accepted by critics as one of the first and important works in Russian ethno-electronics, clearly addressing to Russian folklore and at the same time sounding modern and topical. Written completely in Russian, full of Russian folk motives, this album had become a turning point in Theodor Bastard's evolution. The new edition of "Beloe" contains the best versions of songs from the both original releases of the album (Russian and Argentinian), selected by the musicians. Some compositions are published in Russia for the first time. The conceptual design of the release was done by Fedor Svolotch based on his own paintings. The exibition of Fedor's paintings dedicated to the release of this album will take place in Moscow and Saint Petersburg galleries within the upcoming band's tour. Like in the first edition, the new version of the album "Beloe" has a unique design - a digipak with a big 20-page booklet is placed in a slipcase made of high-quality cardboard with a cross-like hole.
