A colleague of mine, David MacFayden, e-mailed me to let me know about a website Far From Moscow that recently took flight. The site covers a wide variety of music from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic. Most of these foreign bands only have distribution over seas, so this is the best way to find/buy/promote these +1200 bands. The video-archive section is vast and impressive, with promo videos from bands you have never heard of.
Dive into something you can not understand. Music is universal.
