Something for the children that sounds so good to adults that they don’t end up nuts if their kids want to listen to it on repeat for hours, days or weeks. Ilja Karsikas’ latest project was to create a book and a record for children and the end result looks and sounds fantastic.

Topi Saha has three new song on his myspace and oh my.. I’m in love.. the songs are absolutely wonderful. This guy is ready to become one of the finest folk troubadours in the country. We need a record. These three beauties and some old treasures (like Hämeentie 61) could be a really strong foundation for a brilliant folk album.

Well old news actually, because I’ve been a lazy boy suffering from playoff fever. Anyway, the next Penniless album is due out next fall and the first single Brothers was released some weeks ago. You can buy it for example here. The song is of course wonderful and I’m really looking forward to the album.
