Navonski: “Troika!”

Troika is the soundtrack for a story of three Soviet comrades stationed at a radio observation post in a remote part of the Irkutsk Oblast region during the early 1970’s. During one of the Soyuz missions, something goes awry….

A fitting liner note indeed. buzzing and blurting no-input mixer and possible analog electronics evoke the sounds of old radio equipment. Fragments of speech and numbers seemingly spoken over short-wave in multiple languages. Even if you factor out the siren in track 3 Don totally nails the Cold War/Space Race vibe here.

And here even more Navonski on Soundcloud:
