For this Bandcamp Friday The Academy of Sun’s Nick Hudson has released a haunting new single titled ‘Lights Svoboda’, the proceeds from which will be donated to humanitarian charities in Ukraine.
The opening features a recording I made in Georgia, into my Soviet cassette recorder, of my 20 year old Russian exile friend who fled to Georgia to avoid facing criminal charges for protesting Navalny’s imprisonment. I had him say “freedom, hope and truth” in Russian. He’s headed to join the Ukrainian army this week.
