“Far from Moscow” is a project designed to aggregate and foster music over a very wide area. We have now decided to release regular compilations, dedicated to different genres. These digital publications should help to slow the rate at which young and impressive artists move across the horizon. The same albums should also help to nurture new audiences, both at home and… far from Moscow.
One might assume that a certain kneejerk maximalism has haunted Slavic or Baltic music in recent years. Released, with little warning, into the international arena, musicians from Eastern Europe have maybe felt obliged to chase countless styles or fashions. Maybe panic and pomp have developed as a result?
Our first album is designed to counter that faulty assumption. In other words, where one might expect anxiety and gaudy excess, we instead offer fourteen champions of elegance and confident restraint.
