Album of the Month: Viljami Kukkonen – Mörönsyötti

The new album of the month is obviously Mörönsyötti by Viljami Kukkonen. This one really hit me hard.. or let me rephrase that.. this one hit me really softly. Mörönsyötti is a giant leap ahead of everything else released this year. I just love everything about it. It’s a kind, caring and warm companion that will convince you that even the longest night leads to daylight. I love the fact that an album that contains quite a high amount of musical instruments and extremely detailed arrangements can sound so small, heartfelt and warm. As I previously wrote, listening to Mörönsyötti for the first time was almost like a spiritual experience. It’s not soul, but it’s soulful inspiration. Soft americana colliding with the adorable side of Finnish 70s schlager. A magical and colourful piece of music. You may have noticed already, that I’m not good at describing the exceptional beauty and sincere warmness of the album. This is just what my world should sound like.

Viljami Kukkonen – Mörönsyötti

Today I bought Mörönsyötti by Viljami Kukkonen and I instantly fell in love with it. If I still wrote proper reviews, this one would get full five hearts. Mörönsyötti holds so much beauty and comfort inside. Listening to it for the first time ended up being almost like a spiritual experience. Part of the reason for that was that I had only heard one song beforehand and I simply didn’t know that I was going to spend an afternoon with something so amazing, colourful and captivating. However, after the third song I was already convinced that I was listening to something very special and that feeling have only become stronger during the day. Extremely and monstrously highly recommended. If this won’t end up being in my top 10 for the year 2012, it will be one incredible year. This is the opener Hoivaa.
