The band Supervitesse from Saint Petersburg first came to our attention on a Siberian compilation album entitled "Echotourizm, Volume Three." At the time, all contextual or biographical materials constituted no more than a couple of sentences. The first informed us of the ensemble's location and the fact they play "psychedelic pop." The second - with semi-serious bravado - declared that: "Supervitesse walks hard."

That final statement was presumably designed to invoke Jake Kasdan's comic biopic of fictional rock/pop singer Dewey Cox, "Walk Hard" (2007). The film follows the imaginary career of a post-war American crooner through various styles, successes, and professional or personal failures. Much effort is invested in mocking various rockist cliches. At the tender age of fourteen, for example, Dewey tells his mother: "Mama, I love you. But I don't need nobody. All I need is my music. I've seen my path today, and I'm gonna take it. Someday, I'll make my masterpiece, and you'll all be proud of me."


Психоделическое трио с девушкой во главе. Звук — как и положено — мечтательный, по-хорошему вязкий и заботливо заархивированный. Из очевидных и правомерных ассоциаций — Stereolab, Broadcast и Electrelane. Буквально на днях выпустили дебютный EP. Нам кажется, что альбом они уже будут выпускать на хорошем нездешнем лейбле средней руки — настолько все аккуратно, прилежно, без лишней смури и игры в саунд-дизайн. Такая группа Saint Etienne под небесами. И, как водится, с прекрасными глазами и большими перспективами.
