It's rather hard to consider writing about singles to be a respectable affair for music critics. Singles don't really have that much to do with music- they're more in the sphere of marketologists and advertisers. But there are actually two new songs from Zemphira: "Snow," and "I Dreamed of London." As those specialists in the realm of supply and demand point out, the remix is an unauthorized one. It's a little too early for it, they say, it hasn't found its context. To look at it from a simpler point of view, however, where most music fans probably find themselves, I would say it's quite on time, if we put aside questions of personal taste. And the song about London actually is quite charming- probably because it has nothing to do with London.

But Zemphira seems to have still succeeded in what she does best- maintaining a complete cultural (or contextual) inadequacy that is based on absolute honesty and the inability to "make something pretty."

Which is exactly what everyone loves her for.
