Institute Benjamenta is a Russian psycho-folk/experimental/lo-fi rock band which was called after the Quay brothers' film. Some of their works sound quite weird, but there's a number of songs tending to be melodic somehow.
Their major influences were Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Silver Apples, Coil, Leonard Cohen and so on.
At the moment the band is recording their debut highly expected album.
