Boomkat Product Review:
This label sampler for the Peippo label is sure to go down well with all you Fonal followers out there - largely because many of the artists involved are the same: Kemialliset Ystavat, Kiila, Lau Nau and Islaja are all involved, as are other Finnish experimental luminaries like Kuupuu. The compilation represents a mixture of acts both well-established outside their native land and relatively unheard of, with exciting new sounds coming from the noise collages of Sewer Pyysalos and the field recordings of Taikuri Tali, whose lo-fi animal noises and tape hiss sound like the work of a Scandinavian Chris Watson relegated to using a shoddy old dictaphone. Predictably excellent material stems from the Fonal regulars though: from the intricate folk of Kiila to the haunted incantations of Lau Nau there's plenty for any scholar of the Finnish underground to get stuck into.
