Boomkat Product Review:
Formed by members of Rauhan Orkesteri, Lauhkeat Lampaat are an improvisational duo who main instruments seem to be a recording device and pile of household objects. Music is pieced together from buzzing appliances, metronomes, feedback, distant humming and various other, largely unidentifiable odds and ends. The overall sound this pair makes could quite reasonably be branded as fairly unmusical, instead placing emphasis on ghostly rattles and whispers, and across these two untitled pieces you'll find yourself bombarded by twittering abstractions occasionally verging on outright noise music, occasionally more like a lo-fi electroacoustic aesthetic, but never quite committing to either. This folksy electronic improv has enough going on to hold your attention regardless of how unconventional the narratives are - at least in part because you get a real sense of a location as mapped out by the various objects and ephemera you can hear floating around the mix. Recommended.
