Back by overwhelming popular demand after a break, like Putin in 2012...


Shortparis' Strashno / Страшно - the video is controversial for obvious reasons, filmed about a week after the Kerch shooting but planned beforehand.

Afisha has put together a nice video introduction to their 20 "freshmen" of 2019, which give an insight into quite how thoroughly rap has taken over Russia, Ukraine and Belarus' music scenes.

five months pass...

People used to describe Romanian pop star Inna as an anonymous, generic voice on top of generic dance tracks, in spite of several classic BANGERS released that no one else could've done as well.. and now she's gone and released the ultimate argument in favor of a big personality - a concept album!

Full on singer-songwriter turn, only Inna and two other people produced the whole thing basically.

It's very good and playful! Still a beguiling touch here and there of the classic Romanian pop sound.

I’ve been listening to the Alyona Alyona album a lot recently. The song with Alina Pash is perfect.

I've been enjoying the second Mirele mini-album too.

I’m all for Inna (she was the inspiration for my Spotify profile name). This new stuff is good. I love “Fuego”!

Worth noting that this album is in Spanish, after she’d been courting Spanish-speaking audiences for years.

This one from last year was in Romanian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slisxcXTIH8

taking advantage of this moment to say thanks to you breastcrawl as one of this board's most effective and diligent music recommenders (whose tastes nicely overlap with mine!)

Thanks forks, that’s so sweet! (though I’m not at all sure about the effective part)
