Motorama surely have to be Russia’s finest indie-pop outfit, playing their dreamy wares to everybody across Russia and beyond. Many Nights, their fifth album, is light and punchy, bouncing along with a simple but infectious liveliness, good grooves, and that addictive jangle. Released by the Taitres label.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 October 2018

Well it looks like Motorama have cheered up since the last time I heard them. They still have that dreamy Field Mice sound but have lost some of the early '80s doom mongering. Russia's finest indie-pop band are in a fluffy mood on pleasant opener 'Second Part' which is the sort of dreamy indie you hear coming out of the Captured Tracks stable and also has a comical bongo solo. 

They are one of those bands that have a drum machine tinkering away and blend acoustic and electric guitars with a very busy bass patterns. It's a very agreeable sound - nice and tight but soft on your ears. They remind me a lot of the Wake particularly in the icy textures of Voice From the Choir which contains the great line "On the road to the clinic I hear it, On the Way back from the clinic it's still with me". Lyrics credited to Charles Godfrey apparently. And so exemplifies the main problem with Motorama  - though they sound lovely and it's perfectly enjoyable -  they just don't have memorable songs or lyrics that will elevate this above all the other indie-po out there. But who does?
