Fall TV Previews

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Cinema, TV | Leave a comment

The main TV season isn’t even over yet (I still have the final episodes of ‘The Royals’ and ‘The Following’ to enjoy after ‘Revenge’ and ‘Glee’ recently died their slow deaths), but networks are already lining up their freshly recruited TV warriors. In other words: the season of the fall previews is up. I decided to check out most of them and describe what I’ve seen in couple of words – solely based on the trailers. Spoiler alert: I was …

Marina and the Diamonds interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Blog, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

Marina and the Diamonds was on the top of my interview bucket list for a while now. Actually, ever since I discovered her charmingly bizarre ‘Mowgli’s Road’ song and read her pretty sharp-tongued blog back in 2008. I almost talked to Marina in New York in 2011: “almost” as I didn’t recognized her (she just went blond at the time) and managed to party right next to this Primadonna for the whole night without acknowledging her. I finally got my …

This Friday I’m spinning new music at Moscow’s Bar Port (Tsetnoy blvd, 2) and to keep in the spring state of mind I’ve recorded a breezy sun-soaked mix. Put your sunglasses on and go walk around the city! Mikey Moscow – May I Dance (May 2015 Mix) by Mikey Moscow on Mixcloud

Indiana interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Blog, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

When an artist borrows her stage name from Indiana Jones movies and cites ‘Drive’ as her biggest inspiration, you know the music has to be quite an adventure. And British newcomer Indiana’s debut LP ‘No Romeo’ did not disappoint at all. My favorites were ‘Solo Dancing’, ‘No Romeo’ and ‘New Heart’, all three a pleasant blend of trip hop and pop, accentuated by Indiana’s distant delivery. I have to agree with The Guardian review – this record deserves much more …

Susanne Sundfør interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Interviews, Music | 1 Comment

Let’s face it: Scandinavians got their pop figured out. They know how to make it, well, pop in a lot of ways. But to make a certain project really stand out, an artist should go beyond the typical ‘ballad on the dancefloor’ routine. And Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør’s latest album ‘Ten Love Songs’ is a proper tornado. I may go as far as proclaiming this record my most favorite LP of the year so far. It has tons of nuances, …

Zella Day interview

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Blog, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

It’s not easy flirting with the Americana esthetics in these post-Lana Del Rey days with the critics more than willing to put a ‘copycat’ label onto you. Yet a young singer Zella Day, who’s about to release her debut album ‘Kicker’ in June, is not a follower but a capable contributor to the ongoing small American romanticism narration. This blonde with a soft voice and blue eyes filled with innocence switched the landscapes of her tiny Arizonian town to the …

Lost River

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Cinema | Leave a comment

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’ left me with a lot of mixed feelings. I do like such stories: all of this small town Americana romanticism, odd teens, confused adults, urban myths, coming-of-age-plot, neon, metal, glitter, blood, fire, woods. But Gosling is not quite there yet. I saw some bits of ‘Drive’ here (neon + blood), some Cronenberg (the ‘shells’ room), some Lynch (the freakshow of a town and Eva Mendes’ gory variety show) and some bits of Araki’s early …

Discovering and interview up-and-coming artists has always been my thing, so I’m very excited that these day I get to write about new acts on a weekly basis for Cosmopolitan Russia. Here are my latest interviews with artists from all over the world: Agni (Russia), Indiana (UK), Ace Wilder (Sweden), Lola Blanc (USA), Onuka (Ukraine) and Susanne Sundfor (Norway).                     The original versions of the English interview are coming up!
