THEATER OF POISON - RAY MACHINES

Theater Of Poison - Ray Machines"Ray Machines" is the long-awaited reissue of the cult Theater Of Poison album, originally released on a small-edition CD-R in 2001 by the label No Music. The psychedelic musical and poetic project Theater Of Poison (pronounced in Russian - "Teatr yada") was formed in Moscow in 1997. The band's mysterious music, difficult to describe, was characterized by the project participants as "trimelodeclamative suprematism, psychorealism and post-nihilism" and evoked myriads of associations ranging from psychedelia of the 60s, early industrial of the 70s and the gothic scene of the 80s to the work of Coil, Current 93 and The Legendary Pink Dots. The otherworldly and unique lyrics of the project leader N.Yan (aka Yan Nikitin), due to the large number of "intertextual quasi-poetic images", makes one remember Rimbaud, Lautreamont and Khlebnikov, but in general, the music of the Theater of Poison most resembles the art of painting. In October 2012 the not-from-this-world poet, musician, vocalist and painter Yan Nikitin passed away, leaving behind a vast creative legacy, which most have yet to figure out. The album "Ray Machines", recorded in 2000, did not become a turning point for Russian independent music only because the group Theater Of Poison at that time was in the deep underground and did not care about its "promotion" at all. However, later this record was firmly established in the audio collections of motivated listeners and music connoisseurs and greatly influenced the Russian experimental indie scene. In 2021, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the album, the labels Destroyed Room Types and Softunderground reissued "Ray Machines" on double vinyl. Especially for this purpose, a new mastering of the album was made in the Mosfilm tonstudio, on which sound engineer Anatoly Ryasov worked with the direct participation of musicians of the Theater Of Poison - Pavel Doreuli, Petr Molchanov and Sergei Zaroslov. And now the album "Ray Machines" is being reissued on CD with beautiful artwork. The CD is supplemented with a 12-page booklet with lyrics, drawings, collages and photographs; many of the materials presented are published for the first time. Special attention should be paid to the introductory article written by Fedor Svolotch (Theodor Bastard), which includes the memories of the band members about the recording of the album. The edition is released in 2 versions: Regular edition includes: CD in digipak, 12-page booklet. Limited to 200 copies. Special edition includes: CD in digipak with an additional bonus track, 12-page booklet, 3 cards, and other design of the disc. Limited to 100 copies.

Cisfinitum - MonochromeThe album is dedicated to Dmitry Vasilyev, a musical educator, publisher, and ascetic. Initially, composer Evgeny Voronovsky conceived "Monochrome" as a futuristic mass of "high resolution" - an alchemical fusion of angelic chorales and dub-techno pulsations. The news of Vasilyev's tragic death caught the author of the recording rendering the final mix, redefining the meaning and purpose of the work that lasted for a whole year.

Ole Lukkoye - DyatlyIn April 2015, the St. Petersburg band Ole Lukkoye released a new album "Dyatly", published by the American label Trail Records. The album was recorded for two years at different Russian studios. After the material was recorded, the musicians came up with the idea to leave everything as it is and, as far as possible, avoid revision. As a result, only some vocal parts and percussion were recorded before the final mixing. The tracklist of the album consists of five tracks, and the transitions between them are made so smoothly that it seems as if you are listening to one endless song. >>

MACHINEFABRIEK. DUBBELTJES - Zoharum (Poland), 2014
Machinefabriek - DubbeltjesMachinefabriek's music combines elements of drone ambient, glitch, field recordings, minimalism and post-classical avant-garde. This territory is successfully exploited by artists such as Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Oren Ambarchi and Stars Of The Lid. Unlike industrial music, Machinefabriek's improvisations are always very friendly, warm, and conducive to a leisurely exploration of a strange, surreal world. The new album is a compilation of 12 rare tracks released on low-volume 7-inch, cassettes and CD-R in the period from 2008 to 2013. >>
