A couple of really good Finnish albums came out last week.
Volter’s debut album No Return is a charming pop album. 60s pop music, glam, indie pop, even a tiny bit of Finnish schlager and most importantly really good songs. There might not be anything really mind-blowing on the record, but I like everything this record has to offer. Besides, I’m quite happy with my mind as it is. I don’t want to have it blown away. I rather let it flow in a steady stream of well-crafted and beautifully delivered old-fashioned pop songs. This is the first single Ghost Town.
BIG WAVE RIDERS
Big Wave Riders also released their debut album Life Less Ordinary last week. They are part of Soliti’s excellent artist roster. Style-wise they are not totally my cup of tea, but that’s just personal preference. There’s nothing wrong with the quality of their music. Life Less Ordinary is full of high quality pop music and it deserves a lot of attention. And this new video, Sunny Season is pretty damn good.
