Matti Jasu & The Close Encounters: Pin On the Map


The new Matti Jasu & The Close Encounters album Pin on the Map was released 26.6.2013. I bought it instantly and have spent hours of listening to it during the past week. It’s just damn good and my favourite Finnish album of the year so far. The debut Samurai VS Computer was already great, but this thing is just getting better all the time. Below you can listen to She Won’t Come Back from the new album. Listen to / buy the whole album on his Bandcamp. Price is also more than reasonable. 4€ for the digital and 6€ for the CD.

Laura Moisio – Spiraali & Yksin koko elämän


Finnish singer-songwriter Laura Moisio was recently signed by the excellent Lumpeela julkaisut and she is currently recording her debut album. We’ll have to wait for the album to hit the record stores and our hearts until early 2014, but the first outtakes from the upcoming album surfaced a week or two ago. These digital singles Spiraali and Yksin koko elämän are available on iTunes/Spotify/etc. I’m especially enjoying this hauntingly beautiful song called Spiraali. Julia Elomäki directed this simple, but striking video for the song.

Video of the Day #127: The Wicked Whispers


I’ve liked this british psychedelic folk/pop group called The Wicked Whispers from the start and I think I’ve posted each and every one of their videos to the blog. No need to change the policy, because Voodoo Moon is another gem. The vinyl (and digital) single Voodoo Moon was released by Electone Records on 22nd of april. So I’m a bit late to this ball game, but I can catch up by watching this great video ten times in a row.
