Ukraine, 1995, avant-folk
Svitlana Nianio & Alexander Yurchenko – Лiсова колекцiя (Lisova Kolekciya): Weird folksy female vocals accompanied by nothing but a Casio keyboard, yet able to create a faerie feeling with modern means. I detect a strong water motif here–not the sea but rather forest streams and secluded ponds. Minimal yet lush at the same time. I can’t help but wonder who Lisova is. Is she the singer, or are the songs about her? I’m thinking the latter.
