HH      2       MARIA TERIAEVA          CONSERVATORY OF FLOWERS         LP      06.2020

'Conservatory Of Flowers' is the second album by Siberian-born, Moscow-based musician
and composer Maria Teriaeva. Following her solo debut 'Focus' in 2017, 'Conservatory
Of Flowers' focuses on rhythm and percussive elements, cutting down ambient passages
and leaning even more toward traditional song forms, structuring compositions into
pop-length pieces. Recorded over a period of three years, mostly composed during one
summer at her dacha (cottage in Russian) just outside of Moscow, resulting in a vibrant
and light sound inspired by her surrounding nature. In addition to analog synthesizer,
the album also features Nikita Shishkov on trumpet, Vasiliy Yanik on saxophone, Yana
Chekina on cello, Sasha Elina on flute and Vadik Korolev on vocals, with the album
closing off with a remix by Sapphire Slows. Limited to 600 copies.
HH      3       MORITA VARGAS           8                               LP      09.2020

Born and raised in Argentina, Morita Vargas is an experimental artist and producer
based in Buenos Aires. She manipulates her voice through reverbs, delays and whispers,
singing in a self-invented 'language'. The sound of Morita's voice is a portal into
her thriving, dreamlike world brimming, shimmering and beating with unrefined natural
sensations which stimulate something primordial yet strangely contemporary. '8'
features 10 original voice-led compositions that in scope recall evocative portraits
of synthesized landscapes and rainforests, attuned to a vibrant modern pulse and
enchanting vocals. Morita Vargas' '8' has achieved a kind of polyphonic soundscape
which evokes unfamiliar realities through voyages within and between the realms of
ambient and experimental music. Limited to 1000 copies.
