Boomkat Product Review:
The Finns are back again and thank goodness, we were starting to worry that their productivity was waning. This time Islaja collaborator Sala-Arhimo is the focus of our wandering eyes and shock horror, the album isn't on Fonal! Some of you may have already bumped into the Last Visible Dog label, only a few months ago they released a rather spectacular 6 cd boxset which has become some sort of audio bible for the pscyh-folk scene, so it's hardly surprising that they have looked to the frozen snowscapes of Finland for fresh talent. Sala-Arhimo's debut is no disappointment either, taking cues from Islaja he has crafted a lo-fi folk gem - everything you would expect is present and correct; Finnish vocals, glockenspiels, acoustic guitars and other-worldly melodica sounds, but it's the composition that sets Sala-Arhimo apart from his peers. The songs are constructed so beautifully that they rise above the competition effortlessly, 'Turilas Ruusussa' is an ethereal guitar and saxophone led instrumental track and distils the album's strengths, and 'Talviunta' is a vocal led campfire jaunt which makes me feel warm just writing about it. This album is bound to appeal to fans of the last Es album, or any of the less esoteric releases on the Fonal label and even the wyrd pop of the Animal Collective - a very promising debut.
