Music of the got lost dreams among industrial drives, skyscrapers and old plants. Wall of the broken illusions and evil shouts of the desperate souls.

I am very glad to present to your attention an album of an experemental band of Radiomaniac under the name: "Antenna Theory"
It is one of the most mad things in the direction of post-rock, without foolish smack of ambient. The most real maniacs in creation of unusual sound landscapes in which strong communicate electronics, post-hardcore and noise. It is the present song of radio waves, not human music created by people for people.
That they speak about themselves:
"Radiomaniac - four from the island of mixed marriages, talented brewers and, deceiving topographical intuition, the routes, the Distances impressed with painting, Sonic Youth and Nirvana plates, clips The Prodigy, David Lynch's movies, plants, mines, urbanism, the sound effects upset with guitars, faulty sound pickups, a happening - art, infinite night conversations, and also such groups as: Mogwai, 65 days of static, Joy Division, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, HTRK, Velvet Underground, Television.
As a whole sounding of group similar to if Tom York, Tyorston Moore, Dominique Eytchison and Stephen Morris in common would began to play 65 days of static changing Nirvana, in the spirit of Nine Inch Nails.
We never used an acid, did not arrange a session of group meditation, did not play composition lasting over 6 minutes, did not think of the name for group which would consist of 4 words and more, did not do myself in quality оберегов a figure of participants of God is an astronaut."

Moscow's Post-Materialists (Пост-Материалисты) are too weird for Moscow's conservative venues. But they don't care. Inspired by freeform experimental groups like The Residents and Big City Orchestra, and in-league with locals like Asian Women on the Telephone and Arabian Horses, the Post-Materialists' sound is best heard in Moscow's basements and abandoned factories.
Sergey founded Post-Materialists in 2008, starting out as a half-improvised duo with Kobyla. Sergey is a saxophonist, riff-master and lyricist who performs solo as Fish Eye, and plays in everything from hip-hop to noise rock groups. Kobyla cut his teeth on post-punk guitar and synth-pop. Additional members join in on anything from effects pedals to violin, so even as songs take shape, Post-Materialists keep the spirit of improv and continue to evolve.
The group has developed a following not only in the fringes of Moscow, but all over the world thanks to releases on international labels like Cack Tapes, Retrotrasher, Underground Pollution and Hiroshima Toy Pet. I first heard about them through a tape on Portland Oregon's Eggy Records with art by Massachusettes experimentalist Sam Gas Can.
Of the 25+ tracks that Post-Materialists have shared here on the FMA, I've picked out a few of my favorites below. "Jazz Flutes" and "I'm Sitting On You" are from the sax-surfin-on-sludge release Teenage Gigantizm. "Glyptique" is some of that hypnotic synth burble from their twisted new 7". "Mathematic Nightmare" recalls coconspirators AWOTT and can be found on Junky Tapes alongside an industrial take on "Venus in Furs". "Backward City" is indicitive of the lo-fi downbeat drone incantations from Post-Pop, originally released on a cassette on Russia's Cack Tapes. And their First EP finds roots in a pot'n'pan approach to no wave, in the vein of "Evening Event."
Check out a live rendition of "Teenage Giganitizm" and a music video called "Singer of Sad Songs" after the jump.

This is the best chiptune-funk comp ever! To anyone who's ever made disparaging remarks about the soullessness of FM synthesis, I present this album as irrefutable evidence of the contrary. On FM FUNK MADNESS!!, synths come alive. Tracks like Blitz Lunar's "Cascade Masquerade" immediately conjure comparisons to the hits of the great Wild Cherry. The following track,"Fashion Queen" by Kulor is a natural thematic and musical successor to Madonna's "Vogue." Later in the album, the thumping bassline of Tsuyoshi Shimokura's aptly-titled "FunkOsaka" brings to mind not waveform crests and nodes, but the pulsating lights of Studio 54!
FM FUNK MADNESS!! was compiled and released by Ubiktune, a chiptune and video game music-related netlabel based out of Russia.

Last summer, Russian netlabel Electrosound Moscow released a collection of IDM, ambient and glitch tunes called "The Compilation of Modern Sleeping." They proudly proclaim it to be a good way to fall asleep or to dream in summer daylight. You can also imagine a journey and fly to another world with deep sound of modern electronica... Or just to listen to good music. (via.)
The compilation's opening track, "The Green Man" by PLEE!, is a pleasant introduction to the dreamy electronic soundscapes that follow. Download the full album here!
