Original album title: Бодун
Auktyon is known for having had two phases. A first one in which they played post-punk songs, marked by a striking theatrical approach, and a second one closer to the alternative rock universe, with strong influences from folk and jazz music.
This album can be considered a bridge between these two faces of the band, containing elements of both. The arrangements are overwhelming: sung and spoken vocals, funky basslines, atmospheric keyboard layers, catchy piano patterns, saxophone assaults, and eleborate guitar parts influenced by Slavic popular tradition.
By looking into their multifaceted structures, you will realize that these songs have a strong pop feeling and some great melodies. If I have to choose, my favourites would be "Fa fa fa" and "Warum?".
