Listening to Jimmy's music they talk about many things, including his interest in one Aleister Crowley! The seed is sown. Fast forward to 2016. Jon Povey is working with Twink on his "Technicolor Dream" music, adding keyboards and vocals. Twink says "Ever thought about looking into Crowley poetry and writing music to it?"

The Size of the Night

Band:PETER KERNEL
Album:The Size of the Night
Label:ON THE CAMPER RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:INDIE ROCK

What is the size of the night? How can we measure the night? The night is a very personal moment. It can be
majestic; spent indulged in love and joy or terribly frightening; filled with nightmares and fear. The size of this moment is hidden in the details that shake our bodies and keep our hearts beating. In this album we took off the darkest and most mysterious part of our persons and transformed it into songs. We don't have instructions to not make mistakes or not hurt people around us or to love in the most proper manner. We just live. We do good and bad. Sometimes we learn but often we don’t, and simply go ahead doing mistakes. We're complex. We can act stupid and feel lost inside. We can miss each other yet not talk to each other when we're together. This album express this new consciousness we found ourselves exploring throughout these past months. There are some very serious songs and others seem surreal, but each one of these creations form The Size Of The Night in it's greatness and in its darkness. Through this album we’re trying to accept that we can be very sensitive people and at the same time we can be asshole. And that it’s alright. ARIS & BARBARA.

Yours Probably

Band:MOTOR CYCLE DISPLAY TEAM
Album:Yours Probably
Label:ISI MEDIA
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

‘Yours Probably’ is the 4th release and 2nd LP by London alt-rockers Motorcycle Display Team. The tone of this album sees a continuation of the dark path they hinted at on their previous EP. This album has recurring themes of isolation, identity curiosity along with provoking religious beliefs and the mainstream media. Many of these tracks are already live favourites with fans so this album looks to set itself as a firm favourite with dedicated MDT followers. ‘Oh Country, My Country’, the first single from the
album, has had airplay on British, Irish and Italian radio.

Piilokisa

Band:DUO EMILIA LAJUNEN & SUVI OSKALA
Album:Piilokisa
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK FINLAND

Emilia Lajunen and Suvo Oskala about her Album Piilokisa (Hidden Frolic): „Making this album, we wanted the joy of playing music, communication through playing, and living in the moment to be heard – these are all things that give duo playing its power. What we also find joyfully powerful is the chiming of ten strings that runs from ‘Waltz of the Drowned/Lost’ all the way to ‘From the Deceased’. Our arrangements of the traditional Finnish folk tunes and the three amazing new pieces composed for us are where melodies come out to play – a ‘Hidden Frolic’."

 

 

Aeaeneni Yli Vesien

Band:OKRA PLAYGROUND
Album:Aeaeneni Yli Vesien
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK FINLAND

Helsinki based electro‐folk band Okra Playground was originally formed in 2010 from a shared wish to bring together excellent people and musician to play around traditional Finnish music with a fresh approach. The band became almost literally a musical playground for its musicians. On this playground the kantele and bowed lyre,
both ancient folk instruments, coexist in a new, exciting symbiosis with modern instruments and soundscapes. The music resulting from the quite unusual interesting combination has roots deep in the Finnish soil, but its tallest branches spread out towards the furthest shores of world music. The strong voices of the three female singers, as well as the age‐old lyrics, simultaneously take the listener to far‐off places and close to home. Okra Playground’s fresh music captivates the listener with its hypnotic beat and mystical energy. Okra Playground’s long‐waited debut album Turmio was released in October 2015. The album has ever since been warmly received gaining praises in the new and old mediums – for instance receiving a five star review in Songlines Magazine. Turmio also made it to few listings of best albums of 2015 (Glue at Rosvot blog and Spanish radio program O Recanto do Corcovado). In July 2016 Turmio was re‐released by Nordic Notes in most of Europe. The debut also took Okra Playground to perform as the only Finnish band on the official showcase program of World Music Expo WOMEX16.
