"Naukkarinen manages to take a million-and-one risks while keeping things subtle, understated, aesthetically intriguing, and emotionally resonant." - Pitchfork, 8.0 . Nukkuu (Finnish for Sleeps) is the long awaited sophomore album by celebrated Finnish femme folk fave Lau Nau. Nukkuu is psychedelic, abstract & emotionally captivating. Nukkuu is an album of changes. In the years since her debut album Kuutarha, Laura became a mother, moved to the Finnish countryside and took valuable time to carve out a space for her enchanted art in the new found tranquility of her remote surroundings. Conceived in tight attics & vacant dens on off hours when her young son Nuutti was fast asleep, this is an intimately crafted 9 song collection that unfolds like dreamlike musical ribbons for the senses and delivers the listener to a place of unhurried contentedness. At the time of it’s release, Lau Nau’s debut received high praise in The Wire, Signal To Noise, Dusted, Pitchfork, Lost At Sea, Indie Workshop, Foxy Digitalis, Regional Papers -the Seattle Stranger, The Chicago Reader, The Minneapolis City Pages - among others. Kuutarha was recognized as one of the top 50 records of 2005 by The Wire. The same publication acknowledged one of Lau Nau’s live performances along her U.S. tour as one of the "60 concerts that shook the world". Laura will be doing select shows throughout Europe in the months following the album's release. This Fall, she will be making her return to the U.S. for a full tour.
