Video of the Day #35: Treehouse

Fairly new Finnish band Treehouse is just getting better all the time. These guys have already written a lot of really good pop music with their earlier groups, but now I’m starting to believe that Treehouse will outclass their earlier projects. I really enjoyed the first video, but I freakin’ love this one. I’m a harmony addict and this song will keep me away from my dealer for a long while. I may have listened to way too much (well that’s actually impossible) Popsicle and Teenage Fanclub in my life and I’ve started to see them everywhere I go, but I do get a little bit of Popsicle vibe in the verse and TFC in the chorus. It could be just me. Anyway, By The Lake by Treehouse is a marvellous country-tinged pop song. Just listen, enjoy and fall in love.

News: The Latebirds

Looking for some finnish americana? Well take a look at this. Last Of The Good Ol’ Days, the long-waited new album by The Latebirds, was released today by Grandpop Records. The guest list is again rather impressive and people like Benmont Tench, Nels Cline, Levon Helm, Kris Kristofferson, Dave Rawlings make an appearance on the album (or on the bonus disc). Hopefully the record is impressive as well and I’m confident that it will be. I’m just starting to listen to it, so at this point I can only assume that it will be great.

News & Video of the Day #18: Treehouse

Treehouse is a new finnish band and Back In School is the promosingle of their upcoming debut album. Due out later in 2010. The members have previously made an appearance in such fine pop outfits like The Scaramangas, Streetcar, Flannelmouth, Waterloo. Treehouse probably has a little more country and folk flavours than their other/earlier groups and I have nothing against that. All bands should have a banjo in their instrument arsenal. I’m looking forward for more.

News & Video of the Day #15: Penniless

There’s some good times going on at the moment, if you are into finnish pop and rock music. The new Sweatmaster album that came out two days ago is absolutely wonderful and next wednesday 1st of september will deliver two hopefully (and most likely) magnificent pop albums, because new Penniless album and new Lemonator album will hit the stores and your heart. This is a brand new video Hail Of Bullets from the upcoming Penniless album A Cab To The City. I love it and will be camping outside the record store to get the album early on wednesday morning. If you watch this, I will probably meet you there.
