Auktyon
Girls Sing (Geometriya)
By David Luhrssen

A Russian rock band that emerged during the glasnost era, Auktyon has reinvented itself. For their first album in 12 years, they called on several well-respected American musicians to fill out their sound.

Playing prominent roles on Girls Sing are John Medeski, guitarist Marc Ribot and Klezmatics’ trumpeter Frank London. Perhaps taking an unconscious page from Stravinsky, Auktyon’s music is intelligent yet relentlessly primitive, their rhythms a little sideways and with echoes of Russian folk music. The edgy American players push them toward what was once considered, back in the late days of the Cold War, the venturesome edges of vanguard rock.

Auktyon
Girls Sing | Geometriya

By TED DROZDOWSKI | March 18, 2008

These long-time Soviet art-rockers drafted Yanks Marc Ribot (guitar), John Medeski (keyboards), and Frank London (trumpet) to help them get their punk on. The results run from the noise-colored cool jazz of “Girls Sing” to the acoustic Gypsy folk mash-up “Slova” to the raucous “Tam-dam.” Although this is a radical departure for Leonid Fedorov (whose whisper/croon/bark vocal style leads the live studio session) and his bandmates, the album sounds like a lost artifact of the late-’80s downtown Manhattan music scene, where even Russian-language lyrics would have fit the no-holds-barred æsthetic. As it is, Fedorov and his group could use more of the sly primitivism he praises in his American comrades, whose game efforts can’t quite keep many of these tunes from sounding a little mannered and reserved. Maybe next time Auktyon should have a little more Stoli before hitting the “RECORD” button.

Auktyon + Marc Ribot, John Medeski, Ned Rothenberg, Frank London, Vladimir Volkov
"Girls Sing"
The last for today album of the legendary St.Petersburg group, which was issued after a 11 year break. It was recorded in US with Tom Waits' guitarist Marc Ribot and other invited stars of alternative music: pianist John Medeski, trumpeter Frank London and saxophonist Ned Rothenberg. Vladimir Volkov, who had already worked with the leader of “Auktyon” Leonid Fedorov on his solo albums and with the band itself on the concerts, also took part in the recording. The sound of the album associates with the later concerts of the group and differs from the classic albums of Auktyon by the atmosphere of the "new improvisational music".
