“The Estonian music scene, and the underground music scene, isn’t different to the scenes in other countries. There’s some really boring stuff – and there’s some really good stuff, sounds and ideas which expand your idea of your music. You just have to dig in.” Siim Nestor – Estonian indie label: Porridge Bullet
