From St. Petersburg, Russia, Georgy Kotunov (AKA Long Arm) cites influences such as Bonobo, Amon Tobin, and Dimlite (all previous #SOTDs). Georgy’s latest album ‘Silent Opera’ is “an attempt to describe the states of the human soul. The state of rising and fall, of despair and hope, of humility and expectation of a miracle. The search for peace inside against the background of flowering life around and elusive time”. Out on the Berlin-based label Project Mooncircle, with album artwork by William Barras.
Khruangbin (which literally translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai) is an American musical trio from Houston, Texas, featuring Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Ray “DJ” Johnson Jr. on drums.
