Riot Days Revisited

Pussy Riot (TARA TJÖRVADÓTTIR)

From Doja Cat to Pussy Riot

Also this week:

Masha Alyokhina of print stars Pussy Riot told us that, “Riot Days is not a usual musical concert. It’s a story with a beginning and an end. You can expect a lot of statements and manifesto words, and the songs of Pussy Riot, from the period of the Red Square action which I participated in — and that’s how my Pussy Riot story started — to the last day of prison where I spent two years. With additions regarding the war with Ukraine, and current political prisoner situations in Russia. So it’s musical, theatrical, political and personal.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Jordan Feller of Neil Frances told us that, “The album was recorded over the past 12 months. Our initial idea was to release an album with all collaborations. It didn’t quite work out like that but there’s quite a few songs on the record featuring other artists. We’re quite selective about who we work with, and we’re also very lucky to be able to work with artists we’re big fans of. Both Marc and I love dreamcastmoe’s music and have been fans for quite a while. Same goes for PawPaw Rod, St Panther and DRAMA.”
