Kedr Livanskiy announces debut LP Ariadna, listen to the beautiful title track

Kedr Livanskiy - Ariadna Single Art

Kedr Livanskiy shares the dreamy title track from one of our most anticipated full-lengths of 2017, the follow-up to her brilliant 2016 debut EP January Sun. According to her label 2MR, the new record was inspired by "the Izhevsk (sometimes referred to as "the capital of Russian electronic music") sound of the 80s", and album-opener "Ariadna" is a perfect, glimmering union of Yana Kedrina's melodic, otherworldly dream-pop sensibilities and her thumping and hypnotic underground club music, and it's probably the most accessible track she's released to date...

download Kedr Livanskiy’s “No More Summer Rain”

KEDR NO MORE SUMMER RAIN

As we've mentioned repeatedly here and on our radio show, January Sun, the stellar debut 12" release from Russian producer/singer Yana Kedrina -- aka Kedr Livanskiy -- currently sits in rare company with Oh No, untitled unmastered., and Lemonade as one of the best records of 2016. And while the entrancing, beautifully lo-fi "No More Summer Rain" doesn't actually appear on the record, it was one of the first things we ever heard from Kedrina (via this charming video on her youtube channel), and it might be the most uplifting and hopefully nostalgic track in her oeuvre.

KEDR LIVANSKIY INSTAGRAM

Russian artist Kedr Livanskiy shares another great track from her brilliant January Sun EP, out this week on 2MR. There are probably no hits on Livanskiy's debut record, as its beauty tends to be a little icy and bleak at times, and her lyrics are obviously almost entirely in Russian...
