Viljami Kukkonen – Joko lähdetään (video)

viljami

Viljami Kukkonen has a new music video for the song Joko lähdetään. It’s an outtake from his 2015 album Jos rakkaus tapahtuu, which was my favourite Finnish album of that year. Jos rakkaus tapahtuu is a finally getting a vinyl release as well. So if you didn’t purchase a copy just because you don’t care for those compact disc thingies anymore, there are no reasons to hold back now. The album is gorgeous and there will be a special church concert to celebrate the vinyl release of it. It will take place at Finlaysonin Kirkko, Tampere on the 11th of November. Check out Viljami’s FB for more information. Here’s the new video for the song Joko lähdetään. It was directed by Teemu Niukkanen.

Courtney Marie Andrews – How Quickly Your Heart Mends (video)

I really love the new Courtney Marie Andrews album Honest Life. Definitely an album of the year contender. Only thing left to decide is which year. In the US it came out couple of months ago on Mama Bird Recording Co, but the UK/Europe release will be on Loose Music in January 2017. Damn these different release dates even though I’m sure there are some very understandable reasons behind them. Anyway, the album is brilliant and a huge favourite of mine. There’s also a brand new video for the song How Quickly Your Heart Mends. Watch that below and after that I also highly recommend checking out this recent KEXP Session.

Twain – LA / BMG (video)

I’ve red that there will be new Twain music coming up in the not-too-distant future. Oh well, I suppose even a day might feel like too distant in this case, because Twain aka Mt Davidson is so brilliant. While waiting for the new stuff, I recommend this incredibly lovely video that surfaced a year ago. I missed it back then and found it about a month ago, but now I’ve watched it more times than I can count. Which in the end might not be as much as you imagined, because my math skills are horrible, but I do love the song and the video.

Oh and I can’t leave this one out either. Here are The Deslondes + Twain singing Run Wild. Hopefully The Deslondes and Twain combo will hit Finnish shores someday.
