Sweet Spandy, we love you.
A protester played “Yesterday” by the Beatles on the Maidan piano on February 19 as central Kyiv burned. I added some video I’ve taken over the past few months of the protests here. This week has been the bloodiest anyone here can remember. Truly terrible.

Go listen to this right now!! Apollo (theantigoverner) and Nicky (flansjohnburgh) released this INCREDIBLE EP and I recommend it 100%!! It’s really great synth pop and I really like it and it would be great if you all checked them out!!
The Plague and Beekeeping (EP) by Cassette Fighter
This is really good stuff!
Sort of minimalist retro-futuristic melody driven “synthpop” with a New Wave sensibility. ‘A Lonely Walk in the Woods’ is instantaneously appealing. ‘Too Good to Be False’ is charming and clever. Evokes a peppy yet melancholy mood. Feels independant without being too “rough around the edges”. Mostly instrumental, digital. Interesting execution of vocals.
Almost didn’t notice the link to the ‘Celestial Mechanics’ video in which they literally fight cassettes:
