Gnomic no-fi plunk, wheeze, rattle and moan courtesy of an unfortunately monikered (well...at least to English language readers anyway...it probably means something just lovely in Finnish...) supergroup comprised of Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu, Laura Naukkarinen aka Lau Nau and Merja Kokkonen aka Islaja that draws from the seemingly eternal well of stoned detuned mischief that feeds the viaducts of the Finnish underground.
The sheer density of acts positing variants on this same post-Amon Duul/Siloah-like freakout stylee there gives rise to questions of bandwagon hopping, but that’s a discussion for another time. For the here and now, this first release of theirs is a choice manifestation of heavy-lidded third-mind acoustic weirdity that’s as ungainly as it is mystically/chemically blasted.
This is CONTEMPORARY music. In the new age whose keynote is the destruction of old forms and the birth of new spirit our ears are still constantly insulted with the musical establishment's attempts to "hold on" to the old traditions whatever the cost. Music is neat and clean and void of real life. We say fuck those people, we just want to blow. Folk music is dead, it got too fond of itself. Jazz is dead, it got too lost in itself. Rock is screaming its brains out trying to make up for the loss. But there is a new sound known only to a few, a sound of death and conflict and reconciliation and fresh air. It fits no categories, it just IS. And that is what we are presenting you with, a whole sound. Not clever parts, no individual achievement, this is the sound of a GROUP SOUL being born ..
