News from our friend Faithful Johannes of barely-rap duo Outside Your House. When he’s not doing that, he’s running Win Big records and presents his latest release.

Novyi Lef take their name from a 1920s Russian art publication and, frankly, once Johannes told us that, we were in. Ethic Or Aesthetic is their first EP and showcases their synth-punk stylings. Analogue synths, that is, which gives it all a retro feel. If we didn’t love the music enough, the title of the EP is taken from Rayner Banham’s treatise on The New Brutalism. There’s serious art creds on show here.
