ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: FR96LP

"Intense, but at the outer edges of experimentation, Finland’s Jarse (yar-sa) are an off-shoot of the instrumental outfit Shogun Kunitoki. Repetitive, almost hymnal, keyboard refrains were bedded with drums and spidery guitar like a militaristic vision of Eno’s Another Green World. It was impossible not to be sucked in." - Kieron Tyler. As a band, Jarse didn’t materialise out of thin air: the members have served time in other bands such as Shogun Kunitoki, Kiila, Pymathon, Kemialliset Ystävät, Taco Bells, Dimi’s Re-connected (who operate Erkki Kurenniemi’s erstwhile instruments) and Pöllöt. … Read more

Dubstep and ambient pop styles from Modifier on Glasgow's High Sheen label. The fusion of loping, bit-crushed rhythm and diced folk vocals of 'Haptic' and 'Under The Window' remind of Deep Medi's Clouds or Various Production; the icier ambient techno-pop of 'Lupica' nods to Robyn, The Field, Pantha Du Prince.
