Various Artists – Gudelnaya Polyana – Solar Systo Togathering 2020

Good music and good new labels are easy to find if you apply yourself.  Zhelezobeton is not a new label, per sé, but a lot of the bands they work with will be new to listeners who don’t normally follow what is happening in the Russian sphere of influence.

This compilation is three hours of live recordings made by a variety of artists, including, intriguingly, an ensemble of 12-year-old noisemakers.  The future, judging by the standards of this comp, is in secure hands over there.

Also interesting is where this compilation was put together.  It was held on the experimental stage of the Solar Systo Togathering festival in the forests outside of St. Petersburg, no matter what the weather.  Music is made with whatever conditions nature provides, adding to the ambiance.

Enjoy the track listing above and immerse yourselves in pleasant noise infused with natural settings for a while.
