Lal Lal Lal Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
A collaborative compilation between the labels Lal Lal Lal and Ikuisuus, both prominent platforms in the Finnish psych, weird folk and ambient undergrounds. Mostly Finns feature, such as the relatively well-known Olli Aarni, Kuupuu and Ilpo Numminen. Yet there are also appearances from Tokyo’s H. Takahashi, Antwerp’s David Edren and also-Antwerp’s Miaux.
Spanning 8 tracks long, LA-born Eddie Ruscha and Jim Goodall - aka The Parels - continue their idiosyncratic journey through colourful musical lands. Mineral Kingdom is the group's sophomore release, and one which blends - like its mysterious album sleeve - spiralling flamboyance with darkness.
