Politicized but still good
A quite politicized band — Romantiki / ВИА Романтики — but I very like their arrangment of the song below (written in 1945). Check out its special quiet mood, organ and backing vocals:
romantiki — spoem druzia-tovarishi.mp3
Similar band — Iskateli / Искатели — with a psychedelic-mood track talking about WW2’s horrors:
iskateli — salaspils 197x.mp3 (1974)
Another version of Salaspils recorded by Poyushie Gitary, thanks to Musicdawn!
poyushie gitary — salaspils 1973.mp3 (by Поющие Гитары ’1973)
