Paavoharju – ‘Italialaisella Laivalla’
To perfect honest, I’m not even sure what this album is yet, but it already seems like one of the more interesting albums of the year. My guess is that this Finnish group have tried to created a carefully sculpted transmission of obscured sounds recycled into fresh composition in the same style as Quiet Village’s Silent Movie.
Hailing from the forest-town of Savonlinnas, Paavoharju describe their music as “Esoteric romantic mysticism and darkness floating over deep-sea-level of the christian mind.” I think that should give you a fair idea of what this album holds.
Laulu Laakson Kukista is out now on Fonal.
