Album:POP‐LIISA 16
Label:SVART
Format:LP

Hasse Walli is the legendary guitarist behind early Piirpauke and Blues Section. Between these two groups Walli had a short‐lived quartet called Z eus, whose short lifespan lasted from 1972 to 1973.

The final part of the Jazz Liisa series sees the extraordinary cult percussion artist Edward Vesala lead a 9‐piece ensemble. Recorded in 1974, shortly before the recording of his legendary Nan Madol album, this is a rare chance to hear Vesala live on air during his early creative period.

 

 

POP‐LIISA 18

Band:DONNA/TABULA RASA
Album:POP‐LIISA 18
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:Prog Rock

Our 18‐part Pop Liisa series closes with one of the last of the radio shows in the Pop series. Donna’s set could be called a true lost gem – this reggae‐influenced rock group only recorded one single (on Love Records) before disbanding in 1979. This four track radio session features only previously unheard tracks and offers an idea what a Donna album might have sounded like. Tabula Rasa are one of the most influential and important acts of the Progressive Rock movement in 70’s Finland, and this radio session is the only surviving document of their later period after the departure of their original singer Jukka Leppilampi. Also features one unrecorded song, ‘Windy’.

Borderlands

Band:WEATHERED STATUES
Album:Borderlands
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Gothic Rock

As the earth turns toward a colder era and humans struggle to adapt to a bleaker autumn breeze, a new music shivers in the shadows. There stand Weathered Statues. The group convened in early 2017 in Denver, Colorado, with three members having previously performed together in the post‐doom outfit Cloak of Organs (along with members of Planes Mistaken for Stars and Wovenhand). Weathered Statues convened at Module Overload Studios in Denver over the summer of 2017 to record with Jamie Hillyer (engineer of Green Druid’s Ashen Blood). An album, Borderlands, coalesced, drawing on the grim futurism of the past: the barren darkness of Skeletal
Family, the metallic abrasion of Killing Joke, the crystalline ghostliness of Siouxsie and the Banshees, the icy dreaminess of Xmal Deutschland, and the hollow fragility
of early New Order. Then Lol Tolhurst, co‐founder of The Cure, agreed to remix “Corpse Candle,” the opening track of Borderlands, infusing it with a sleek dance pulse, while Keith Curts of industrial duo Echo Beds added synthesizer to the album’s slashing final track, “Holy Masquerade.”

 

 

Kid In A Big World

Band:JOHN HOWARD
Album:Kid In A Big World
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:LP (+ MP3 Download Code)
Genre:POP

Originally released by CBS in 1975 ‐ Produced by Tony Meehan at Abbey Road (engineer Peter Bown ‐ Beatles , Barbara Streisand) and by Paul Phillips at Apple Studios (engineer Phil McDonald ‐ John Lennon ), It featured musicians of the calibre of Argent’s keyboardist Rod Argent and their drummer Bob Henrit. "A magnificent collection of rococo balladry and florid vignettes from a singer/songwriter who might have rivaled Elton or Bowie. What a discovery!" (Uncut *****) “If a fairer world prevailed, John Howard would surely have been huge in the 1970's. Even though events didn't turn out that way... at least there's a chance for those who missed out first time to discover a 1975 album that ranks as a great "lost" treasure. With a sound midway between the flamboyant piano‐led poprock of Elton John and the rich melodrama and tragic story‐telling of Scott Walker, the album begins superbly with a strident 'Goodbye Suzie' but its tale of suicide meant that it was deemed unfit for Radio 1 at the time” (Leonard's Lair) “This really is a wonderful little gem... and unmissable pearl from a wonderful singer‐songwriter” (Amazon UK) “A great batch of Beatles‐inspired pop graced with some incredible production touches (Dusty Groove) “One of the greatest hidden albums of pop combining David Bowie, Lewis Carroll, Syd Barrett, Jarvis
Cocker; eccentric dandy John Howard deserves an ovation” (Standart Magazine) “the combination of pop melodies with finely wrought lyricism and occassional theatricalism” (All Music Guide)
“A lost glam era gem...a fascinating album and story both...” (Mohair Sweets)

Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World

Band:SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS
Album:Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:LP (+CD)
Genre:Folk Psychedelia

From Cardiff (Wales) “Take Time To Wonder In A Whirling World” by SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS
For the first time on Vinyl (includes CD!) this classic album of UK Folk‐Psychedelic. Originally released in 2007.
One of the best Folk‐Psych albums of the 21st Century, true!
The Soft Hearted Scientists' music is probably suitable for most drug experiences, very power‐ful and psychedelic with a constant feeling of togetherness. There is a nice mixture of instrumental and vocal tracks drenched in folky sonics. They take the refreshing route of pushing their psychedelic rock influences into pop music. “Any band who sings about caterpillars, the Brecon Beacons and monsters called Yongy Bongy Bo risk, being so quirky they'd leave you reaching for a Misty's Big Adventure CD for respite. Yes the first album proper from these acoustic folk oddballs might suggest its makers bed down in a Glasto tepee every night, tucked in by a woodlan pixie, but to dismiss Cardiff's SHS as quirk over substance would be idiotic. Over Beta Band‐ish acoustics and cloudy chants , electro‐squiggles and instruments we couldn't even begin to name jiggle and hop, all neon highlighting the campfire brilliance of SHS's choruses. Yongy Bongy who?” Jamie Fullerton, NME, 2007.

Format:CD
Genre:Progressive rock / Symphonic rock

This is the new version of Wobbler's debut album from 2005; remixed and remastered in 2016, now finally released on CD.

The album features tons (literally) of vintage keyboards such as mellotron, hammond organ, etc.

 

 

PLASTIC CLOUD

Band:PLASTIC CLOUD
Album:PLASTIC CLOUD
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP 180 G limited
Genre:Psychedelic

"What remains so remarkable about the band's album is that... the performances retain an energy, but also a naivety, that somehow evokes both the Jefferson Airplane and the Velvet Underground — often within the same song." —Shindig! Magazine Plastic Cloud recorded, quite simply, one of the greatest underground psychedelic albums ever made: a swirl of gossamer vocals and Tolkien references, swathed in the some of the most relentless fuzz guitar you will ever hear. A record with few equals, full of foreboding melodies and lovely hippie harmonies, as well as some of the trippiest fuzz guitar ever recorded. There is no need to single out a specific track, they are all excellent—one is equally as good as the next. Take for example the album centerpiece, the ten-and-a-half-minute ‘You Don't Care,’ an insane piece of social commentary that features terrific back-of-the-mix fuzz guitar as an elusive focal point to its extended pounding-drum laden instrumental breaks; a ten-minute swath of lysergic fuzz guitar that closes out the first side, it doesn't overstay its welcome, winding its way to a final freak out. Essential psychedelia!

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.

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.

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.

Label:LA CUPULA MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:RHYTHM & BLUES/ROCK N ROLL

FLAMINGO TOURS from Spain play their very own mixture of rhythm’n’blues, rock’n’roll, exotica and a touch of soul, surf and garage music. You can hear rockin’ guitars, a rhythmic beat, an incredible soulful female voice à la Etta James, Gizelle or Derriere ‐ elements like a dreamy steel guitar here and a groovy hammond organ there, and
naturally you can also feel the wild Spanish temperament. After their debut album “Right On Time” on A‐WAMBA RECORDS and two 7”s, their second album is released on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS in co‐production with LA CUPULA MUSIC.
“Lucha Libre” starts off with the rockin’, wild “Guerrero”, introducing singer Myriam Swanson’s powerful voice, which is absolutely breathtaking. The off‐beat vocal‐surf‐tune “Mexican Dogfight” fits in well among the cool bartune “Sangrita” with its jazzy hammond‐organ and beautiful Spanish ballads such as “Si Me Abrasas” and
“Agarrame”. The dramatic rhythm’n’blues‐tune “It’s Cheaper” instantly gives you goosebumps and charming singer Myriam Swanson almost sounds like Amy Winehouse.
“Dance To The Devil” opens up the B‐side as a fun rok’n’roll dancin’ tune and with “Dia De Muertos” follows a slower, smooth exotica‐tune. Finally the band even adds some country‐elements like steel guitar and accordeon, to the Mexican/American‐sounding “Rosita Went To Jail”. So make sure to save yourselves a copy of “Lucha Libre”, the simply fantastic second album by Barcelona's highly talented FLAMINGO TOURS!

THE BEAST IS YOU

Band:THE ELECTRIC MESS
Album:THE BEAST IS YOU
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:GARAGE/ROCK

Brand‐new LP “The Beast Is You” by New York’s brilliant ELECTRIC MESS has arrived! This album is loud, wild and completely electrifying. The record absolutely catches the band’s powerful mixture of 60s rock, punkrock and 80s garage‐revival with incredibly cool vocals by tough frontwoman Esther Crow, wild guitars and rockin’ beats. “Disconnected” or “Snow Queen” display a little more their wild punk‐facet, while “You Can’t Hide” and “It Happens All The Time” go more in the 60s garage‐direction with catchy songwriting, a stomping beat, and rockin’ wildness. “Mystery Girl” again has more of a pop‐punk‐side to it with a slightly softer tone and fantastic harmonies.
The most downtempo‐song of the album is also its final one, adding a slightly different touch to it and with singer Derek Crow’s vocals reminds one a little bit of David Bowie.
All in all “The Beast Is You” is a fantastic album by a fantastic band that leaves nothing to be desired!

This album is loud, wild and completely electrifying. The record absolutely catches the band’s powerful mixture of 60s rock, punkrock and 80s garage‐revival with incredibly cool vocals by tough frontwoman Esther Crow, wild guitars and rockin’ beats. “Disconnected” or “Snow Queen” display a little more their wild punk‐facet, while “You Can’t Hide” and “It Happens All The Time” go more in the 60s garage‐direction with catchy songwriting, a stomping beat, and rockin’ wildness. “Mystery Girl” again has more of a pop‐punk‐side to it with a slightly softer tone and fantastic harmonies.
The most downtempo‐song of the album is also its final one, adding a slightly different touch to it and with singer Derek Crow’s vocals reminds one a little bit of David Bowie.
All in all “The Beast Is You” is a fantastic album by a fantastic band that leaves nothing to be desired!

"This album is pure death. The sadness and sometimes the joy of it".

As with "Nymphs & Weavers" and "Unholy Tales From The North", BURNING SAVIOURS maintain the dark and doomy elements of PENTAGRAM and CATHEDRAL. Many bands over the years have taken great pride in naming PENTAGRAM as a main influence, but it's the 70's -breathing energy that lies within BURNING SAVIOURS releases that made the band stand out in the heavy rock / doom scene. And with "Death", they once again live up to the reputation that made them one of the most extraordinary bands in the heavy scene of today.

 

 

EAST OF SUN

Band:GATEKEEPER
Album:EAST OF SUN
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:EPIC METAL/HEAVY METAL

Originally formed in 2009 as a solo project by guitarist Geoff Blackwell, GATEKEEPER has assembled an impressive array of EPs and splits, including an
appearance on Metal Blade’s “Metal Massacre XIV” where they contributed the song “Bell Of Tarantia”.
Recorded over the span of six months at Harbourside Studios in Vancouver, Canada, “East Of Sun” was produced by Mike Rogerson, whose previous credits
include ANNIHILATOR, AGGRESSION, 88 MILE TRIP and LOVERBOY.
The “East Of Sun” title is a shortened version of a book of Scandinavian folk tales that parallels the content on the record where each song stands on its own.
The album’s cover art was created by Duncan Storr, who has previously worked with SKYCLAD, RAGE and Cruz Del Sur’s own DARK FOREST.
“East Of Sun” boasts a mixture of older, unreleased material written by Blackwell which are complemented by live staples that have recently been updated.
In the words of Blackwell, “East of Sun is pure heavy metal with a sword and sorcery flourish. We wear our influences on our sleeves, but we don't want to be a
pale imitation of them. We try to capture the spirit of what we love without copying anyone’s' notes. This album has our fastest song and it's got our biggest,
most epic slow-burner and many songs in between. It has melodic electric guitar playing coupled with fierce riffs, thunderous rhythms, mystical acoustic
passages and, of course, a unique and varied performance from our singer, Jean-Pierre Abbaud (SPELL, BORROWED TIME)”.

Album:What You Know - Absolutely Nothing
Label:TBMR
Format:VINYL (7”)
Genre:ALTERNATIVE ROCK/GARAGE FOLK

Throughout the years, The Velvoids never lose that emotion-centered palm grip on their melodic music. Vulnerable? Yes. Authentic, but also free. As forever students of various art forms, 2018 sees the release of two new snapshots on a double A-side single, composed of raw, rhythmic stories, reaching far beyond their urban Athens origins, to an entire multicultural universe.
There are no ridiculous party anthems here, rather steady, consistent spurts of sonic transcendence; there really is no other option. It's a short pause of reflectance in the midst of a rollercoaster life. While The Velvoids steadily evolve, having performed and released music since 2003, with every listen to What You Know /Absolutely Nothing emerges a different feel from the many left lurking in the midst of this curated chaos, documented on the spot during a 3 day-long squatted studio session while pregnant with their daughter, and delivers a lyrical approach and wordplay as gifted as they come.

Collider

Band:HEADS
Album:Collider
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:LP- BLACK
Genre:NOIR/SLOWGAZE

With Collider the German-Australian trio evade all the pitfalls of the sophomore slump. These ten songs carry an atmosphere of restrained
anger and maturity, capturing a somber narrative that continues to resonate and leave the listener pondering. Collider listens like a trudge
through inhospitable badlands with each song starting as if it was always there, and you just walk into the music at hearing distance.
Having members spread out over the globe, the band adjusted their writing and recording process to accommodate work schedules and
extended family visits. On top of this, Collider features a whole string of guest musicians who infuse the record with extra fresh sounds.
Kevin Whitley from legendary US noise rockers Cherubs joins the band on ‘Smile’, while Luc Hess (Kunz + Closet Disco Queen + ex-The
Ocean) lends his incredible drumming to ‘Youth’ and ‘To Call and Let It Ring’. Emilie Zoë (solo + Autisti) and Fabian Bremer (Radare +
graphic design) bring the haunting qualities of their musicianship to ‘Wolves at the Door’. All of this is held together by an impeccable mix
and mastering of the one-and-only Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna).
This album proves HEADS to be masters at bending noise into narrative and heavy riffing into images of vast wastelands. Collider is art rock
meeting sludge in a carefully arranged interplay of grave digging and marble sculpting. A bleak redefinition of heartland rock that’s situated on
the verge of the savage and the sophisticated. (Robert Westerveld / Arctic Drones)

Through the Void, Above the Suns

Band:DEADLY CARNAGE
Album:Through the Void, Above the Suns
Label:SAD SADNESS SONG
Format:Digipak CD
Genre:POST-BLACK METAL

DEADLY CARNAGE’s “Through the Void, Above the Suns” is a phenomenal journey, an unmatched vision of the Cosmos with all its tangible
and intangible components: stars, dark matter, black holes. Forces that regulate it up through Light and Time. Each of those often intangible
elements has been characterized and almost humanized, to transcend their original dimensions in order to explain themselves to us in an
intelligible, universal language of knowledge and enlightenment. It’s a travel that proceeds from the infinitely small world of raw matter to
infinite cosmic distances, where Time and Space finally coincide. After everything has been born and has made its course in a myriad of
random possibilities, it comes to entropy, to the absolute frost, the loss of every light, the complete end. And, right after, the Universe starts to
breath once again, and the eternal cycle restarts.
While in the past DEADLY CARNAGE have explored existentialism, with this new chapter they move towards an universal vision, halfway
between science, philosophy, occultism and spirituality.
What to expect on the musical manifestation side? A wide vision and dark moods following a strong emotional gameplan. Some may
recognize doomish shadings, expanding post-rock & shoegaze fields, but the experience still has to be lived…

 

 

Soli Contro il Mondo

Band:NOVA
Album:Soli Contro il Mondo
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

“Soli Contro il Mondo”, Alone standing against the world, has to be considered as the spiritual continuation of “il Ritorno” , The Return, where
a collective rediscover of forgotten references is made living on a naturally hostile environment.
Moving to the musical and creative side new solutions have been evolved into the typical Nova sound. Kali Yuga is meant as a vicious joke of
the demiurge, that shaped a human shell simulacrum, where we have been thrown.
Breaking the veil of Maya, the musicality of the medieval Black Metal poetry of the Troubadours traditions meets the speed and intensity of
the modern Archeofuturismo.
This revolt movement born in Italian to reverse the decadent situation taking ancient inspiration to an instinctive modern form, takes Nova to
sharpen their riffs to evoke pre-human strengths.
On the background there will be some essential orchestral & folkish elements, an hyperuranic magma of emotions drawn with not repetitive
and indolent arrangements, adorning a solid mosaic.
The unusual tuning, moving as a divine Charioteer adorned by an ancient armor, fly nose-diving on chariot of lights to inflame boredom.

Back to the Mausoleum

Band:GRAVEYARD (ES)
Album:Back to the Mausoleum
Label:WAR ANTHEM
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

2007… Oh, what a crazy year it was!!!! Javi and Julkarn, long time friends, had been working on a bunch of old school Death Metal tracks for a few years, but
since it was impossible to find a drummer that could understand that you can actually play Death Metal without constant blastbeats and without showing the
world how skilled you are, the project remained on hold. In the summer of 2007, Javi met Gusi at the Party San Festival (in a twist of fate, who would know
back then that the band would sign with Party San's partner label War Anthem Records!). Once they discovered they had something in common besides from the
heavy drinking habit, Javi offered Gusi to enter the band as a drummer and go with him and Julkarn to the dirtiest shithole in Catalunya to record their first demo
“Into the Mausoleum”. The recordings happened in a filthy garage up in the hills of Castelldefels mountains and the band managed to write, readapt some old
ideas, rehearse and record 4 tracks in a weekend. When the alcohol storm passed away and they got together to listen to what had happened on the now
legendary Mountains of Madness (also called “The House of Death” for its equally legendary parties happening there), they were shocked and pleasently
surprised; those 4 tracks actually sounded pretty good! Well, the production was shit but the Spirit, the Power and the Utter Darkness were there! What should
have been a side project just for fun, turned into a real band, and here we are 10 years later, with a bunch of releases, albums, tours, festivals… We still don't
believe how the hell this actually worked, but it happened!!!
