Nice to see they're doing a show here in Olympia, so if my wife decides that's how she'd like to spend her birthday then we will be in attendance.
There's a new episode from finnish live music video site Off the Record featuring the band Harmaja performing in an aquarium: http://offtherecord.fi/harmaja/
Can't say that I'm familiar with this act at all, but first impressions are quite good.
I had forgotten to keep up with Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha since their self-titled debut passed through here back in late 2010, but I just received a copy of their latest, just-released record "Yö Rovaniemellä" and I'm glad to report that first impressions are just as positive as before. Obviously somewhat of an acquired taste you could say, but I really do love this sort of classic finnish tango/dance music.
finnish singer/songwriter Olavi Uusivirta is the latest artist to be featured on live music video site Off the Record: http://offtherecord.fi/olavi-uusivirta/
So, uh, apparently long-running finnish hardcore act Terveet Kädet has a new live album out called "UGH!!! Terveet Kädet elävänä" which is half electric/half acoustic. Which also probably means it's only half-listenable, but who knows? I am definitely curious.
The Scrags new single "Void lodge" will be released via the esteemed finnish label this coming spring on 7" vinyl.
Following in the tradition established with their previous albums, finnish noiserockers par excellence Hebosagil have posted their latest work "Ura" for free streaming/download. See here: http://hebosagil.com/2012/ura/
If you like music that is dirty and heavy, you need this.
The latest session for finnish live video website Off the Record features Swedish pop act The Sounds: http://offtherecord.fi/the-sounds/
New stuff from finnish pigfuckers Baxter Stockman off the 7" of the same name, due out tomorrow via . Not exactly safe for work.
