Boomkat Product Review:
Finnish psychedelic rockers Risto have been tirelessly adding to the distinctly Northern European Fonal label for ages, and this latest bumper selection of tracks is yet another reason to find a new obsession. Yes, they sing in Finnish and make some sort of 80s pop approximation of T-Rex tracks, but it's really not what you think it might be. Risto have gone through a number of changes throughout their career, and the electronic pop sound explored on '176 671' suits them very well indeed. There's almost the sound of Olde English Spelling Bee weird-popper Autre Ne Veut in the band's merciless re-approximation of nostalgic sounds, but it doesn't begin and end there. Not a band to be held to one style the band manage to drop in references to classic rock 'n roll, blues, country - even subtle, quiet solo piano gets a look in. While that might sound like a decidedly schizophrenic listening experience (it is), the album has all the qualities of a damned good mix. It's arresting, unexpected and incredibly enjoyable stuff - but we should really expect that from Fonal at this point, right?
