Pienet Koirat – Lähehä & Kynnet – Raaputa kaljatuoppiin

A small late night video post. If this recent folk/americana direction of this blog feels dreadfully boring to you, here’s a great blast of Finnish rock’n’roll. You can practice the beautiful Finnish language while you’re at it. Ok, this Pienet Koirat song might be a bit of a challenge even for a native speaker. A damn good song though and I love the video where people try to do some karaoke sing along to a song that they have never heard. Plus there’s cats too and well above all.. I love cats. Lähehä is the second single from their forthcoming album.

Ochre Room – Cabin Sessions

Ochre-Room-2014-promo-hi-res3-1024x685

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 you probably can’t capture the whole beauty of this by staring at that stamp-sized window below.

The first four songs on the video are from Ochre Room’s latest album Box, Bar & Diamond that came out in April 2014 (Lumpeela Julkaisut / Beste! Unterhaltung). Check it out if you haven’t done it already. Extremely monstrously highly Recommended, five hearts, album of the year so far and all the other praises.
