Olimpia Splendid
Olimpia Splendid

The debut album from Olimpia Splendid comes after their EP dropped in 2013 to praise of their gritty electric guitar and hypnotic rhythms. The six tracks on the album from the three girls from Helsinki have looping rhythms which are built upon with raging guitar and mantra like vocals. An intense and punk like slice of psychedel...view item »

Risto
Aurinko Aurinko Pla Plaa Plaa

on the Fonal label, firstly a CD album by Risto that is like a psych-lounge-folk pop odyssey that sways in the breeze like maybe a Scando-Montgolfier Brothers with bits of The Doors in places. It's really cool & eclectic with an otherworldly tinge....view item »

Jarse
Det Gar Runt Igen

Finnish psych rockers at their most minimalist, Jarse are perfectionists, having only just finished the forever prepped-for-release 'Det går runt igen'. The record features a lot of the psychedelic good stuff, including ridiculously long solos (one that goes for five minutes), which Fonal Records are proudly championing as the longest on a...view item »

Pollot
Pollot

A band from Turku, Finland and its ever-expanding scene of intriguing experimental rock acts, Pöllöt are now releasing their self-titled debut record. Their music often retains the lo-fi tag -- not as a trophy but as a tool -- fixing it on grooves that sound beautifully suppressed as a result of their production. The ban...view item »

Goodiepal
Battlefleet Gothic - Live In Roskilde 2000

Goodiepal is an electronic Dane, or rather a guy from Denmark known as Parl Kristan Bjørn Vester who happens to make electronic compositions. Known primarily as an academic of music, teaching classes in electro-acoustic music in Aarhus, 'Battlefleet Gothic - Live At Rosklide 2000' shows off his holier-than-thou brand of professor-like, sa...view item »

Ignatz
Can I Go Home Now

Named after a violent brick-throwing mouse in the comic Krazy Katz, Ignatz is the alter-ego of Belgian acoustic singer-songwriter and artist Bram Devens. Can I Go Home Now is his fifth home-recorded album (the previous four being self-released). Acoustic, effect-driven songs recorded on a four-track and computer. On vin...view item »

Lau Nau
Valohiukkanen

This record is easily one of the most sublime releases I've had the pleasure of meeting through the long-running Finnish psych folk stable Fonal. What used to be a safe haven for experimental oddballs and kitchen sink-hurling hermits has unleashed something beautiful and extraordinary here. ...view item »

Dolphins Into The Future
...On Sea Faring Isolation

Heyyy, it's time for more ambient-y kosmiche sounding synth stuff, this time from hippyish Belgian mister Dolphins Into the Future. I'm loving the fact that all this stuff is totally fashionable these days although I'm sure I'll probably reach saturation point with it before too long, somewhere around the time an average Klaus Schulze...view item »

Kemialliset Ystavat
Ullakkopalo

Mental buggers alert. After the plod & whine of the last CD, this new effort from Finland's finest free-folk madheads is a true blast of fresh Scandinavian air. How they so successfullymerge psych/acid-folk, gibbering electronics, field recordings, tape loops & mind-bending swathes of sound collage into such a listenable stew i'll never ...view item »

Islaja
Ulual YYY

ISLAJA has a new one out on Fonal. 'Ulual yyy' is more of her brand of slightly twisted Finnish folk. I find the language barrier a problem at times with some of the Fonal Gear although the music has it's moments. There's lots going on here, some really nice melodies juxtaposed with quite discordant sounds. I'm left slightly confused. 'Pete P' has ...view item »

Islaja
Keraaminen Pää

Christ, she's looking a bit mardy on the front here. She should be chuffed, she's gone done an album what's good. I'm by no means an expert on the Fonal label (I think that Paavoharju LP with the face on the cover's the only thing I've got on there) but this sounds reasonably typical for a lot of the stuff I've heard, combining a free-folky sort...view item »

Islaja
Palaa Aurinkoon

Here's a CD by Islaja from Finland. One person here has said Mum meets Animal Collective and  the other has said Joanna Newsom meets Six Organs of Admittance. I think that pretty much sums it up  - its wierdy left of centre folky stuff with lovely vocals. Fits wonderfully into that wierd-folk th...view item »

Es
Kesamaan Lapset

Wonky Finnish avant-pop sensation Es has his fifth full lengther out on popular sideways experiScando stable Fonal and he's christened the collection 'Kesämaan Lapset'. Over the course of 5 tunes of uneven duration he explores juddering cosmic synthscapes, chiming ambient moods & toytown analogue minimalism. On T3, 'Säteet sun sielusta', ponder...view item »

Paavoharju
Laulu Laakson Kukista

This was my second favorite album of 2008.  (Sigur Ros came in first.).  Paavoharju is one of the scene's true originals, combining creaky sampling, electronics, freak folk, pop and Christian mysticism into a melange that is simultaneously haunting and transporting.  While the music wanders across genres and the vocals are in Finnish, the al...view item »

Tomutonttu
Tomutonto

Tomutonttu is a Finnish chap who was Christened Jan Anderzn but somewhere along the way he decided to start constructing frighteningly bizarre & compulsive sound vistas that often call to mind an acid fried trip in a humid jungle. As far as noise & avant garde music goes, this man's warped imagination has produced two fascinating aural stew...view item »

The music on 'Touta Touta' is considered and focused with an emphasis on traditional folk song arrangements. There are some great moments on the this reco...view item »

One more for you before we crack on is a new CD by Paavo Harju on Fonal records which is simply stunning. I don't have time to give it a full review but it's all over the place from twisted folk to opera to electronica. You may remember the Islaja CD that came out a while back on the same label.

Fricara Pacchu
Stories Of The Old

We got an intriguing 7" of mad Finnish DIY indie space pop instrumentals in by Fricara Pacchu. The sleeve has a bad embroidery of possibly a Yorkshire or Border Terrier on the front which is so awful, 'tis cute! I especially like the disturbing amateur black metal style logo. This is incredibly strange, hypnotic, whirring & wibbling gear. ...view item »

Also a CD by Shogun Kunitoki called 'Tasankokaiku' that's euphorically twinkly instrumental psychedelic stuff that again, references The Doors with it's spiraling, tripped out keyboard flourishes. Don't know what's in the water up there but I bet this'd sound astonishing on mushrooms..... ...view item »
