The Russian Apartments: “Gods”

Gods (Single, 2010) Cover Art

Singer/songwriter Michael Caulfield has an affinity for 1980s pop, and it shows. His most-recent project, the synthesizer-heavy, dramatic soundscapes of The Russian Apartments, is music that can require some patience. But that patience is rewarded with tracks like “Gods”, which mixes the aforementioned synths with string interludes and simplistic lyrics to create a sort of musical time travel.

Caulfield is giving away plenty of his work as The Russian Apartments, including a few EPs and a soon-to-be-released split with I Am This Big Black Cloud, which comes out later this year. Check out the song and video for “The Queen of America” below as well as “Gods”.
