Sister Flo – Tragician’s Hat (Anniversary Edition)

Maybe I’ve been writing this blog far too long, because record labels are already starting to reissue the ones that I covered and loved during the early days of One Chord to Another. Soliti couldn’t have picked a better one to reissue though, so I’m glad they are reissuing Tragician’s Hat and I’m more than happy to feature it again. After all, Sister Flo’s Tragician’s …

Video of the Day #151: Withered Hand

Withered Hand has a new music video for the song Black Tambourine. The song is an excellent outtake from the latest Withered Hand album New Gods that came out early in the year on Fortuna POP! / Slumberland. That guy on the video definitely looks exactly like Dan Willson and a cat makes a cameo appearance. What’s not to love. This is Withered Hand and …

The Weather Station, Michael Feuerstack & Community Theatre

Sometimes it feels like that perhaps this should be called Canadian pop site and not a Finnish pop site, because these days a huge amount of my favourite bands are Canadian. We are stuck in Canada once again, because great things keep on happening on a daily basis.
Today one of my favourite labels You’ve Changed Records announced that they will release a new The Weather …

Bahamas – Bahamas is Afie

Finnish-Canadian Afie Jurvanen aka Bahamas just released a new album a couple of weeks ago. This new one is called Bahamas is Afie and just like everything he has released before, it sounds magnificent to me. The man has the sweetest voice and is so good at creating songs that might seem small, but still make a huge lasting impression. I’m especially loving the beginning …

I did a couple of these playlists during the spring and then I just forgot the whole thing. Maybe it’s time do a few more. This one has another approach though and these are mostly new songs. Turner Cody might be 2013, others are 2014 I think. It’s not supposed be best of 2014 or anything. These are just some songs that I’ve loved during …

Julie Arsenault & Callan Furlong

I don’t know much about Julie Arsenault, but somehow I found her Bandcamp page a few months ago. I seem to find myself returning to that page quite often and tonight that happened once again. Her album The Creature That I Call Myself is something rather amazing and it sounds so incredibly lovely. I’m especially addicted to the opening song called Bad Words, which you …

Cowbell & The High Learys

I tried so hard not to say that this blog needs a little more cowbell. It looks like I failed miserably. Anyway, tonight I ended up listening to this new Cowbell album that is out now Damaged Goods. Or sometime soon at least. The label website says pre-order, but at least this Spotify thing seem to contain the whole Skeleton Soul album. Cowbell are Jack …

Ochre Room – Cabin Sessions

This is something really special. The finest Finnish band perfectly captured on film. Ochre Room – Cabin Sessions was directed, shot and edited by Sami Pöyry (Monadi-filmi). Somewhere between a live session and a short film says the press release and that sums it up nicely. I did add the embed code below, but please do visit the vimeo link or hit full screen, because …
