RISTO - RISTO (CD)

"Leevi & the Leavings in the city, Ville Leinonen in handcuffs, Kauko Röyhkä in selfpity, Kari Peitsamo as a smart person. Risto brings that self esteem, naiviness and reality that died with Gösta Sundgvist. Have you heard what they whisper around Tampere?" (label ...

"This is the definition of the music of Chamellows: it is rewarding, dark, unadulterated, bloody, tender, ethereally floaty and unique. Chamellows no longer exist in their original form. I feel the mark they left was sizable, especially now that Sami has released this ...

"On the new album Silmät sulkaset, the band gently conjures up mildly otherworldly tunes with a peaceful air and feathered eyes. What was once free pop played by two is now free folk played by seven. The language of the songs has reverted back to Finnish, and the human ...

"Please receive this carefully cooked porridge, the new untitled Kemialliset Ystävät full length album. Pulsating, radiant and turbocharged this music shares the groove of a junk pile AND a wild foal. It comes with the lovely smell of the chemical they spray on apple ...

"TV-Resistori's debut album came out in 2004. With their childlike melodies and cheezy synthesizer tunes names like Stereolab, Raymond Scott and Mouse On Mars might pop up. If we ever have a hit single it might very well come from TV-Resistori. Yrjö's and Päivi's ...
