Misha Mishajashvili- 2012 (2012)

Misha Mishajashvili- 2012 (2012)
Misha Mishajashvili
This album may have been my favorite 2012 release.  Its release in January went relatively unnoticed, but everyone I have shown this album to has been very impressed.  The album is filled with strange radio transmissions which give visions of fall out and Chernobyl.  The drums have a reversal effect thrown on them, leaving whisps after their hits.  The first song has a vocal track of a a female voice which has been pushed to the point where the audio has been severely distorted: an obviously intentional technique which works well to encompass this surreal, ghost-town feel the music creates.  The second track has a few moments of beeps which imitate the sound of life support in a hospital.  This Russian album almost could take the title of concept album simply because of how well all the songs hold one continual sound.
Listen to it Here.

Hopefully we will see his next album next January.  If so, you can guarantee I will be quick to give it a listen.
