Bandcamp Daily shines a light on some lo-fi pop tape labels in St. Petersburg, Russia:

"'The city can be very daunting,' says Brown. 'You’re at the mercy of the water and wind, and because of bureaucracy and distance it can be tough to visit other cities. There’s a sense of hopelessness sometimes, but one which can’t be de-coupled from a sense that people are making contributions to a defiantly local culture.'"

Thanks for listening!
