Of course I looked up what the Russian title is supposed to mean. I am curious enough for that and obviously I'd like to check its relevance to the music. However I am never sure if I then should use the translation. With Google translate there is a risk of being horribly wrong. The title means 'moments' and behind Exit In Grey is [S], also Sergey Suhovik (in his passport) and Black Deal With Snow, Candyman And Evil Flowers, Five Elements Music, Radioson, Redhouse, Sergey Suhovik and Sister Loolomie (on Discogs). Many names with not always the clearest of differences between what he produces. Not that I know all of his projects, but for instance Exit In Grey and Five Elements Music is very close in musical terms. Exit in Grey used to be a duo but is now a solo project of [S]. Much of what he does revolves and evolves around the mighty world of drone music and in that respect this is new work is not different. In the first two-thirds or so this comes via a heavy storm of heavily processed field recordings, forming this vast, thick mass of drone sounds. A cloud of clustered church organs if you will, or some densely layered guitar sounds. Anything is possible really yet judging by the final one-third I would think the guitar is the primary source of music. In that part the more melodic side of Exit In Grey pops up with some highly sorrowful bucket of tunes on the six strings and e-bow. That and of course a whole bunch of sound effects; loop stations of whatever kind seems to me the most likely candidate. Robert Fripp would be happy with such a grandson. I am not sure what the word 'moments' reflect, other than that it is maybe a title that fits the idea of the moment in which this music is playing, the very moment it exists and then doesn't again. It moves from quite dark in the beginning towards some beautiful shimmering light towards the end and is divided in various moments. This is a fine solid work, not Exit In Grey's best or most original work, but surely among his best. (FdW)
