2014 reissue. Although Zemfira Ramazanova is best known for being the top rock songstress in Russia, her first foray into modern cinema is wildly successful as well. Poslednyaya Skazka Rity (Rita's Last Fairy Tale) is the soundtrack to Renata Litvimova's acclaimed 2012 film of the same name. In Zemfira's own words, "I don't know that much about movies and how to write soundtracks. So our work became a very interesting process -- it's a great difference between straight rock songs and soundtrack itself." Nevertheless, Rita's Last Fairytale is a very intriguing example of modern art house soundtracks -- mystical and highly lyrical at once. Finely crafted minimalist arrangements and classy melodies make this LP work beautifully on its own. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl and presented in a gatefold sleeve.
