    Both celebratory and melancholy, this is an exceptionally strong album which effortlessly compels repeated listens.

    Being more open to collaborations, and trusting the process of a co-producer, the quality of production is more on the synthetic side, but the record still has a sense of nostalgia that permeates her techno-pop melodies, because of the heavy synths.

    Deeper, bolder, and more playful than Ariadna, it’s a robust album that mines the past for inspiration, while rooting you bodily in the present.

    Your Need is an impressively produced, immaculate-sounding, often beguiling record, whose slightness and concision are its only real drawbacks.

    Nothing on Your Need exceeds the four-minute mark, landing the album squarely in the electro-pop zone rather than the Russian underground dance scene. Such directness leads to Kedr Livanskiy’s catchiest album to date, even if it means that the best tracks are over too soon. Despite the airy vocal hook and 1990s-inspired breakbeat of a standout like “Sky Kisses,” it tantalizes and then starts to fade away.

Instead of being shrouded in hazy down-tempo electronica, Kedr brings more life to the project by experimenting with sound and sonic textures. It feels new and nostalgic at the same time. Not to mention that these songs are addicting, even if you don't speak Russian. Expand

    With her folky vocal delivery and the dance music influence of the 90s, her follow-up is a welcome change. The bright synthesizers are everything.
