Album Review

Reviewed 2008-04-24
Rustic experimental free-folk from Finland. Beautiful, delicate, hypnotic, and hippy dippy. FCC clean. Picks (all good, but):
Hypnotic - 1. Folky - 2,3,5. Experimental - 6,10

*1-3:53) Beatless, swelling indian drone, hypnotic vox. Rustically religious.
*2-4:14) Folky, delicate unusual string tones, beautiful interweaving vox.
*3-4:32) Seemingly aleatory pluckings that form a rhythm, lo-fi treated vox. Singing outside on a porch before a storm. Last 1:30 a drone slowly overtakes the group.
4-5:30) Chimey and sparse. Quiet buzzing in background, childlike singing. Very slow.
*5-4:07) Rythmic, playful, pretty melody and charmingly out of tune violin.
*6-2:47) Quiet, lo-fi experimenting with strings and percussion, tape manipulation? Ends sparse.
7-4:38) Vox. and slidey elec. guitar sing expansive, deliberate melody. Ends on warm harmonium tone.
8-3:48) More instrumental feel, Indian drone and flutes prominent. Very nature-y.
9-4:24) A traditional Nepalese song. Slow processional with vaguely asian sounds.
*10-3:06) Experimental recordings of percussion, and ambient sounds. Starts sparse and grows more frantic then dies down.
