Good rumblings from the Secret Eye camp of late. The label, who I hadn't heard from in a bit, at least not since that excellent Black Forrest/Black Sea 10" that graced these pages, is back with an interesting offering from everybody's favorite Finnish psych-folk collective. That's right its Jan Anderzén and Kemialliset Ystävät and this previously tour only release features all sorts of cameo attention from Avarus, Kiila, Es and Christina and Tom Carter. This disc shows the Fins clanking away like mad, but at the same time retaining some of the refinement and shades of melody that they began to emit on their last full length for Fonal. Seems fitting I suppose, since they're most likely playing much of that on tour. Still the band isn't exactly turning in their squelch and squalor just yet, which is why we love them. I'm still yet to see this bunch live but from the sounds of things it has to be a memorable experience. Pick this one up while you can, the Secret Eye store still appears to have a few copies left but once those are sold this release is gone.
