Stereo 8000 – Stereo 8000

stereo80002

New self-titled Stereo 8000 album came out on Bone Voyage Recording Company last week. I had really high hopes, because I really loved their previous effort Duel. This new one doesn’t completely reach the level of Duel, but this was not a damn contest anyway. This garage rock couple is still in top form and have again created a really good record. This one below is Magnet, my favourite song from the new album.

Video of the Day #142: Viljami Kukkonen

If you ask me what is the best Finnish album of this decade so far, I don’t need to think twice. The answer will be Mörönsyötti by Viljami Kukkonen. I love that album wholeheartedly. When I have Mörönsyötti and Office Building’s To See Only Shadows, I’m going to be ok. They are not similar, but somehow they still are like companion pieces to me. The most beautiful music I can think of.

Viljami Kukkonen recently filmed a new song with Luomustudio. The song is called Säkki and it’s another beauty. Viljami is currently working on the next full-lenght. I couldn’t be more excited. Also remember to visit luomustudio.fi weekly. There’s already a huge amount of wonderful videos and more are coming on a weekly basis. I highly recommend this Small Houses video they did when Jeremy was touring in Finland. But this is Viljami Kukkonen and Säkki.

And this is Minä valvon nimeäsi from Mörönsyötti.

Suomen Zorro & Elämän paineet – 6 syliä

suomenzorro

I bought Oletko Terve? EP By Suomen Zorro & Elämän paineet when it came out in 2012 and I had rather mixed feelings. It had some songs that I loved, but also a couple that I didn’t even like. But because the good stuff was so damn good, I’ve been looking forward to hearing some new material from the band. The wait is at least partly over, because Suomen Zorro & Elämän paineet just released a new single and a new music video 6 syliä. I’m liking this a lot and it definitely falls closer to (or into) that love category.
