Jun 3, 2010 Tooth Kink Meets Ilia Belorukov «Heads And Tails» at CDBaby (mp3). In May of 2008 Tooth Kink (Salnikov and Alexei Borisov) met Ilia Belorukov (Dots and Lines, Wozzeck and others) to record «Heads & Tails». Belorukov is a young saxophonist from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He works in the direction of free improvisation, free-jazz, noise and electroacoustic music. Ilia practices an experimental approach of sound extraction on different types of saxophones (alto, tenor and baritone) and on flute (inc. fluteophone). In his compositions and improvisations you can find out influences of John Zorn, Derek Bailey, Mats Gustafsson, Evan Parker and other masters of improvised music. By now he has managed to release plenty albums and collaborate with a number of jazz/impro/electronic musicians as well as paricipate in some festivals.
«Heads & Tails» is a two-part suite recorded in a real time and later produced by Salnikov. It repesents a wide and versatile palette of genres and subgenres, still retaining noise tinge. All three contributors are tightly intertwined in this gripping, psychedelic and fluid work, which wouldn’t leave a listener indifferent. Genuine bounty for an experimental music lover.
Apr 21, 2010 Poostosh «Aipon» is available on CDBaby (mp3). 11 piano improvisations influenced by Satie, Mertens and Budd. Evocative, vibrant and intrinsically blossom impellent. 2 or 4 hands. Was recorded within a small breaks in the functioning theatre when grand piano was available. All is recorded with Shure radio mic. Played once. Only 10th track has a post-production as wohd (Thai flute) was added. Year 2003.
Mar 18, 2010 New album has been released on Mrs Vee. It is a joint product of Salnikov and Rounik Sethi — Code Name Pollen «Seed». Been created in 2007 — 08 and finally produced in 2010. Genre — bright and upbeat electronica with dub and ambient core. Download for free here (you’re only to register to get it).
Feb 21, 2010 Kommissar Hjuler releases one composition of Tooth Kink on CD — R (limited edition) —

(Sky Wanderer title refers to him as he posessed this sign according to Maya calendar). We were good friends. RIP.

Dec 11, 2009The Miller again. Enchanting array of modern genres represented by two outstanding bands:
8.00 pm — The Resonance Association. Lauded in post-industrial, progressive and mainstream rock press alike, experimental rock duo The Resonance Association create music that combines emotive guitar solos, dense atmospherics and blistering industrial rhythms.
8.40 pm — The Name. The Name is a formation of experienced musicians. Blending dub, funk, electronica, ambient, jazz elements and some Hackney/Shoreditch salubrious air, they softly but emphatically get you dancing whilst dreaming.
This time you’ll be saturated with chilly but fat beats, explorative improvisation, new videotrips from Vortex.
This is our conclusion of 2009 — balanced, enlightened, intrinsic, psychedelic, vivid, wicked, celestial, simply warm gig.

Exclusive edition. Apparently sold out already. The cover can be viewed here.

The tracks on the album dont belong to one style (all music is electronic and experimental, though) — theres things of dub with kraut-rock bias, Eno-ish instrumentals, glitch, downtempo, dark-ambient, house and more. The cover uses the original picture by Petr Smirnov.
«Intoxicated Divinity» is free for download here. You only are to register to get it.
Sept 8, 2009 Monstaar Records has re-released the debut album of MOX «Insects» (originally was on Exotica, Moscow, 2002, edition is sold out). MOX gives an opportunity to explore his bizarre and captivating worlds, blending ambient, dub, IDM, Warpwise electronica with elements of hip-hop, house, classical minimalism and humour — that was reflected in «Insects» in full measure.
Currently, but within a limited period of time, «Insects» is free-downloadable here. Hurry up!
Sept 1, 2009 The review on «Herbarium» in Russian «Rolling Stone». (in Russian, of course).
A litlle bit earlier Salnikov (as Tooth Kink) began collaborating with Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer, started working on a piece they sent, which resulted in a very limited edition exclusive CD-R edition — (SHMF — 019+36) Tooth Kink „Die Antizipation des Generalized Other“ (already sold out).

May 28, 2009 The new long-awaited album of Poostosh «Herbarium» is out now on CDBaby (MP3). It is diverse palette of styles (post-rock, ambient, electronica, trip-hop, with elements of noise, dub, neoclassic and free improvisation), united by cinematic, slightly pensive mood. «Herbarium» is called so because of heterogeneity of «songs», which can be compared to miscellaneous leaves in the album, still being belonged to the family of trees. Trying to avoid non-alive metaphors here, only thought of diversity and warm and innermost feeling that herbarium is capable to conjure up. «... This leaf I picked up in the park where I met her, and this — I sat by the river, contemplating...». So tracks were created — one was captured in some magic jam, another — recorded layer by layer and meticulously mixed then, next — cut from previous sessions and so on. All compositions are united by Poostosh sense of music — thoughtful, spatial, tender and experimental. Physical CD is on its way!
May 27, 2009 From now on Poostosh «Untime» CD can be purchased on Norman Records. There is their review.
Mar 26, 2009 The first gig of The Name. The Name is a newborn formation of experienced musicians.

12.07.08 — Moscow label Clinical Archives has just released an album Tooth Kink vs Kenji Siratori. Kenji Siratori found Tooth Kink in MySpace and offered to make a joint album. So its here — dark, provocative and brooding stuff, comprising pre-industrial, noise-hop and hi-infidelity. Free downloadable.
Kenji Siratori: a Japanese cyberpunk writer who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud. Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development. With unparalleled stylistic terrorism, he unleashes his literary attack. An unprovoked assault on the senses. Blood Electric (Creation Books) was
acclaimed by David Bowie.
Jul 1, 2008 Watch a video from Titlo gig in IKRA (14.05.08).

Jul 1, 2007 MONSTAAR RECORDS has just released an album QUTH MEETS POOSTOSH at the SECRET DOOR. «QUTH meets Poostosh» can sound tautological for the conversant listener, because Misha Salnikov (MOX, QUTH) is a founder of the Poostosh project. But it implies that the album belongs to both projects equally; To QUTH due to its dark ambient processed sampledelics, and to Poostosh due to the participation of all the Poostosh main members: Andrey Gavrilov and Andrey Kovalenko. The album is a result of experimentation in an particularly ambient field. It has a nostalgia for times when EG Records existed. The albums mood is thick and trippy and will satisfy every ambient lover.
