Various Artists – [2017] Music for Sputnik-1 Vol. 1

To celebrate the 60th birthday of the first satellite in space, this compilation contains 10 tracks from mostly Russian artists with retro sounds, effects, aiming for space-themed instrumental tracks. Overall, I like the result very much:

Sputnik by Tenth Cloud scores both high in style and rhythm. Even the harmonic progression mid-song goes well.

That Seems Remote by Lost Radiance has a melody that beautifully conveys its “vast distance” theme.
