Eeliks:en – “Suutre Teiter” – [Fonal Records]
This release by Eeliks:en drew me in instantly, with the kid voices, strange compositions, simple electronics and percussion, and vintage video game sound effects. It reminds me a lot of the goofy fun of Flossie and the Unicorns, but it’s even weirder. You will hear kid rapping (did he say “monkey bones”? “Reagan”?), minimal keyboards, and a baby. Best of all, this was created by a 7-year-old boy from Finland: Eelis Mikael Salminen. His early recordings were made on his dad’s iPhone. This album is a great reminder that we should never underestimate the creativity of kids.
