  • Indie pop/rock

  • Dream pop 
  • Lo-fi 
  • DIY 
  • Psychedelic rock

Comment: in the 90s there had been the vital indie guitar pop/rock scene in Estonia full of urge and naivety. Probably the most well-known ensemble was Röövel Ööbik, the first combo coming out behind the Iron Curtain to had appeared in John Peel show and had their own session. However, there had been existed such combos as ÖÄK, 1983, Dallas, Dreamphish, Bizarre, The Chance, Afternooning Plague Family, Bimini, Borax, FM Violet, The Choice, Jim Arrow And The Anachrones. In the 00s most of the collectives ended their tenure and new combos were more professional and unfortunately boring and lacklustre. Cuubik. is a contemporary group yet their soundscape sounds very authentic in comparison with the aforementioned era. The members of the combo call their sound fake indie yet it disorienting description. It is an instance of indie/alternative pop/rock at its finest and genuine meaning. It is more than a little bit lo-fi and DIY, it is a little bit dreamy, it is a little bit psychedelic and even employing electronic and dance-appealed sounds at times. I feel myself truly fascinated while listening to these slightly drowsy yet highly enchanting compositions. Highly nostalgic and refreshing at the same time. I do not miss the 90s but I am always ready to rememebr it with a positive word. One can find out a couple of great tracks from within it (Philosophers, Mindgame Mastermind, You and You). You can get a shortened version of the album on tape as well being released on Trash Can Dance.
