Finland - Full Moon 245 - 08/18/16
This is the Finnish bands's debut album and it's a fine record in all ways. "Tuulee" (The Wind Blows) is a catchy psychedelic song with shades of the sixties psych scene and the Beatles in that phase. "Harhailen" (Drifting) is a folksy song with some nice touches. It recalls the Byrds and has some British folk touches to it. "Suostu en" (I Say No) is a tough song with some very inspired melodic moves.
"Viisi merta" (Five Seas) has some cool whistling, and a breakneck pace yet retains its melodic sense. It's a fabulous debut, and their use of the Finnish language helps it stand out and gives an intriguing quality. It's well worth a look.
