Garage Rock? Balalike it!

For those who don’t think that Russian music ends with the last chord of balalaika we would like to present our new audio-podcast devoted to the contemporary Russian music. The aim is to show the great diversity of Russian musicians, performing in various genres from jazz to experimental trip-hop. Some of the artists are much influenced by western culture, others try to develop and promote authentic Russian sound and mainly Russian lyrics.

We invite you to a promising journey beyond the headlines and prejudices. And it’s up to you to decide whether you like it or even... balalike it.

Get ready to listen to three Russian bands for whom rock ‘n’ roll is part of the soul. Moscow band The Cavestompers! revive the free spirit of the 60s. Alabama Joe who people call the Rostov-on-Don version of The Black Keys have incredibly powerful and rough sound. And The Karovas Milkshake will drown you in the irresistible psychedelic flow.
