Hertta Lussu Assa – “Hertta Lussu Assa” – [De Stijl Records]

lombard   11/29/2011   12-inch, A Library

Finnish trio Hertta Lussu Assa creates a spooky soundscape on their self-titled LP of material recorded between 2008 and 2010. Utterances from ghostly voices (was that a distant scream?) drift in and out as the music buzzes, slinks, clinks, and sways. Bees buzz, keyboards twinkle as if in an abandoned saloon, and an unseen specter munches on caramel corn. On side 2, things begin ethereally, with laughter, the jangle of a bracelet, the whirr of an appliance, keyboard, and the squealing of a cat. It’s a tremendously lovely, mesmerizing trip.
