News: Epilä & Omsk

EPILÄ:

E_ajatuspoliisi_small

Epilä’s debut single Ajatuspoliisi will be released today on 14th of october by Terra Recordings. I can’t say much about the music because up until now it’s been rather hard to hear their songs outside live concerts (they don’t have a myspace and don’t give any samples on their website either). However, the band contains lovely and talented people who have previously played in groups such as Guava, Cartoon Tree, Jadecroon, Aknestik etc so I suppose it’s safe to assume that it will be great stuff. The debut album will follow in january.

OMSK:

Omsk is a finnish folk act I found an hour ago (thanks to Antti) and since then I’ve been listening to their debut album on spotify. No final conclusions yet, but it is quite convincing stuff and I really like it.  In case you don’t have spotify, a lot of Omsk’s material is also available on the Omsk website and on their myspace.

Vote Bääbs to the eurovision song contest

Today you can start voting for Bääbs. YLE have chosen 30 songs for this first stage of selecting the finnish entry to the next eurovision song contest. Only 3 of them will make it to the next round where they are companied by those lame invited acts.

Bääbs is Päivi Kankaro from TV-Resistori and the song You Don’t Know Tomorrow was written by Viola’s Riku Kärkkäinen and Tommi Forsström. It would be great to see such a lovely people make it all the way to Oslo. And obviously I don’t need to vote them just because they are good people. The song is really good as well.

Oh and there’s actually more good people in the contest. Jussi Petäjä has two songs in the competition. One with his great band Captain Cougar and one with his new project Blackbird. Marcus Granfors (aka Frankie Magnum) from Vaasa is also in the game.

You’ll find the songs and the voting info by hitting the link below:
