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 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
