The Bayan (the Russian button accordion) pushes, the saxophone flatters and lyrics tell about gangster stories, backyard songs of love, passion, alcohol and prison.
La Minor comes from St. Petersburg, but do have a partiality for Odessa. Indeed the alleys and bars of these two cities have a lot in common with their European charm. La Minor plays cabaret and street chanson, Russian folk, jazz and klezmer. "They resurrect part of the atmosphere of the Odessa of the 20’s to 40’s. Their songs sound like musical detective stories about little rascals and tragic loves, joyful and melancholic at the same time. Thieves and police men, whores and undercover agents crowd the urban underworld of La Minor songs. The gentle-tender maternal nature of the Russian language makes the tough stories touching and timeless."
La Minor live at Pacific Parc was one fine evening and it is a fine recording. The mood transpires all over the microphones. Time seemed to stand still but the music kept on playing and the crowd dancing. So it was split into two volumes Vol.1 & Vol.2 На здоровье!

Over the last few months we've released songs we've written directly to our website for you to listen to and download.
We decided to put them all together in an EP CD.
With your purchase you also get a CD booklet PDF and a bonus track!

It's been an exciting year for London's electro-rock-cabaret outfit iNiT. The band has finished creating its new video for the track "Hatch" - sticking to a DIY ethos, and playing with shadows as doppelgangers - alter-egos with a major role in the imagery. See if you can figure out what it's all about.
The band has also finished recording a second EP, which you can hear on FMA. iNiT is now working on new material - danceable disco material with tragic undertones - as performed at the high profile GFest in London, as well as on a boat in the Thames (the Ship of Fools monthly club night) and a gallery in Greenwich.
Stay tuned for the recordings of this new turn in the band's musical style or come to one of the live gigs!
