Kuupuu – “Unilintu ” – [Dekorder]

Strange electronic birds nesting in my ears. I’m cuckoo for Kuupuu.
Jonna Karanka’s voice is the feather bedding, it gets multi-tracked,
criss-crossed and stitched into the nest-ness. A decidedly lo-fi
fluffiness helps hoist the intimacy aloft. This feels like one of
the elements at time, a sweet mix of rain and sunshine with a breeziness
that makes these tunes feel more like sketches…or dreams even. They
are something sill in the process of becoming. This is the charm of
Kuupuu, she presents child-as-magi music built from simple instruments
and simple and pure melodies. All of the work here is culled from
other releases, insanely exclusive ones at that; but assembled together
a consistent flow appears and fills this vinyl. Bells ring in the
stream of these songs, brooks babble and Kuupuu’s voice babbles along
with it, guitars glide and everything floats. On “Taivaankotiin” her
river rises highest and hits the paramount, but the watermarks are
way up on all of this start to Finnish.
