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 psychedelia.

The drummer is a long term friend and climbing partner of percussionist, Justin Kristen Harper, who's credited with devloping the mathematic 'hoof-a-hoof' playing style famously Maurice adopted in mid 80s Louisville. The influence is stark on this release. With both being diagnosed in 2006 with pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosi, after a near fatal expedition trip to Chile, it's the first recording JKH has appeared on since Cadey Willis's 'Longhorn Living Space' EP.
