Album Review

Paavoharju – “Uskallan ” – [Type Recordings]

loun   10/18/2006   7-inch, A Library

Paavoharju amazed and confused us earlier this year with their crunchy, warm, didactic, evolving neo-free folk music. Even among Finns, their music is unusual, and, despite the fact that Finnish music these days tends to be pretty good these days, Paavoharju still manages to set themselves apart in a good way. The A side is a nice, crunchy lullaby complete with softly crying baby, and is highly recommended for play on any and all shifts. The B side is similar in its sonic texture, but with neither singing nor baby feels a little barren. This gives its own special quality to the piece, which I suspect was deliberate. Very tasty, very delicious.
