KEDR

Russian underground producer Yana Kedrina -- aka Kedr Livanskiy -- drops the gritty new visuals for "Keep Your Word" (the "stupidest song of the album"), taken from her brilliant debut EP January Sun. Directed by Yana with her friend Konstantin Bushmanov, it feels like something you might've stumbled upon watching some late-night Soviet public access version of Amp in the mid '90s:
