5 stars The most recent release by Vezhlivyj Otkaz (Polite Refusal) is probably their most avant and accomplished release. The band has been around since the mid 80's but have been pretty much unknown outside of Russia. They started out as a punk / ska band and have continually evolved over the years to a dark edgy folky avant band that performs these days. Those of us in the West have AltrOck to thank for distributing these albums that were previously unavailable. The band is primarily an outlet for Roman Suslov the guitarist and vocalist.

The line-up for Geese & Swans consists of Roman Suslov / acoustic guitars, vocals, Dmitry Shumilov / acoustic bass guitar, double bass, vocals, Pavel Karmanov / grand piano, flute, Sergey Ryzhenko / electric violin, vocals, Andrej Soloviev / trumpet, Mikhail Mitin / drums, percussion.

The songs are of the short 3 to 7 minute variety and are generally lyrically based with guitar accented by wind and keys. Outstanding release and highly recommended.
