5. Stonus – Séance (2021)
🇨🇾 Short but pretty catchy EP by the Cypriots. Much wilder sound this time, thanks to the live recording. Sincere, immediate music, which is born at the fingertips.
Swaying from calm rock, fuzzy stoner and heavier stuff. Adding some authentic southern vibes to complete the might and inspire you, wherever you listen to this EP from.
Previous masterpiece by Stonus, “Aphasia” (2020)
6. Dramón – Àspero (2021)

7. Mytishchi on Fire | Мытищи в Oгне – Хорошо у Нас в Аду (2021)
🇷🇺 April comes, and Mytishchi on Fire, an excentric Russian band, is back with a full length. Defiant punkish stuff with pst-modern sounding, full of fire and frenzy.
Did you know that the hell is right next to the Moscow city? Now you know. Open the door and take a seat. Well, you can choose the bowl. Jump in and feel yourself at home. Extreme cabaret escalated to the to the highest extent possible. That’s what you’ll get to with these guys.

🇵🇱 Polish jazzists appear in our blog for the third time, and it’s cool! You never know what you’ll get inside the package.
For this album, these guys have prepared something very tasty. Solid portion of true conventional jazz, considerable amount of fusion, with a room for improv and mild experiments. All blended up and processed naturally, with no bothering component involved.
9. Eishan Ensemble – Project Masnavi (2021)
🇦🇺 Eishan Ensemble from Australia (I’d better say, from the Earth), is a collabaration between the collective’s leader, Hamed Sadeghi, and his friends. With each of their albums, the musicians uncover new domains of beautiful music.
As always when it comes to Eishan Ensemble, their work is meditative, resonating, and breathtaking exactly in he moments when it supposed by the artists.

10. Gnod – Easy To Build, Hard To Destroy (2021)
🇬🇧 11 British act Gnod is the one which never looks back. They just do what they do, the immediate art. After severol episodes of weird electronics, this time they are here with the true rock.
Hypnotic jam with no rules and restriction, that’s what this new piece by Gnod is. Eccentrically psychedelic, sometimes falling into a kind of blues but jumping out of the blue in a moment. Frankly, not a moment, though.
Previous masterpiece by Gnod, “Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine” (2017)
