Hannu Karjalainen lives in Helsinki, Finland. His surname is unpronouncable to non Finno-ugric language speakers so prefers to simply be known as Hannu. His musical background includes a free-grindcore band Abyss at the age of 11 plus lots of teenage experiments with four-track recorders and synthesizers. His source of inspiration is nature, landscape, weather, light, places, friends… etc. His music captures a mood or a feeling of a place, to take the listener somewhere for a moment. The album is a very personal statement and it is mostly recorded and produced at home in Helsinki but some of the songs utilize sounds culled from four-track recordings he made as a teenager in his home town in Northern Finland. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( I suppose Murcof fans should dig this to bits. Very relaxing music all together. Would also love to get my hand on their earlier release "Worms in My Piano". Anyone... I seriously wouldn't mind a shout ). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Worms in My Piano Artist - Hannu Album - Worms In My Piano Release Date - 2006 Genre - Experimental, Electronica, Minimal, Ambient, Dark-electro, Soundscape, Experimental-folk Tracklist 1 Sumu 2:56 2 Haapavesi 3:44 3 Metsa 3:22 4 Worms in My Piano 2:32 5 Lyhty 3:41 6 Ikuisuus 4:36 7 Suruista Suurin 3:00 8 Winter Song 2:58 9 Valisoitto 2:56 10 Uusi Aamu 4:24 11 Junassa 4:27 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hannu - Worms In My Piano ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hintergarten Artist - Hannu Album - Hintergarten ( * * * * * ) Release Date - 2009 Genre - Experimental, Electronica, Minimal, Ambient, Dark-electro, Soundscape, Experimental-folk Tracklist 1 Pop 4:11 2 Lauttasaari 4:14 3 Theme for Grant 4:07 4 Valtameri 3:42 5 Kimallus 2:15 6 Maniac Moshers 3:17 7 Kaipaus 4:53 8 Tassunjälkiä 6:02 9 Hintergarten 3:52 10 Unenviejä 3:59 11 Valssi 5:27 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hannu - Hintergarten Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: ~ Cokiyu ~ Bohren & der Club of Gore ~ Balmorhea ~ Stabilo ~ Telemetrics ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THANKS HOTBLACK...

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
