Ed. of 300 copies on 220 gm vinyl. Kemialliset Ystävät member Tomutonttu (Jan Anderzén) plays a bit like Dome to KY's Wire. The Ystävät-ness is there, but stripped down to the frame with a minimal synth breeze blowing through it. Beautifully lyrical in its layered abstractions, there is a sort of finely hewn composite of experimental dada electronics (ala early, early, early Die Todliche Doris or early, early, early P16.D4) and composerly elements (ala Rimarimba, Andrew Poppy or Meredith Monk). A few little Kraut-isms top off the tonic at no extra charge. Oh, and there's a bit that gets all spacey and chirpy like when the Virgin Prunes go completely bonkers (that's sure a helpful reference point... well, we like it). Basically, this is the music that the mothership had in the tape deck just before dropping Kemialliset Ystävät off in the 12th century.
