Currently my Ash/Bravery masters from 2005. Never got around to splitting them up, and trying my hand at EQ-ing them. Mixed sucess so far. Trying to translate my WinAmp EQ settings to Audacity/Rezound (Linux WAV editors), as I can get them to sound quite nice on my desktop. Just trying for the best sound for my car / home stereo now.

If I can get them tightened/brightened up enough, I foresee a DIME seed, as I've been sitting on them for a bit after not really finding any other tapers for that tour.

MAGENTA SKYCODE - probably the best music from finland at the moment.
some tracks from their first album can be listened here:

http://www.myspace.com/magentaskycode

check out 'red eyes' or the video link for 'people', for instance.

"finnish quintet magenta skycode sound like the cure re-imagined by phil spector, making the sort of anthemic goth-pop that the bravery might be able to pull off if they weren't such a bunch of irrepressible fools" (said by the great escape t-mobile guide)


from their official website:

Raving reviews in Finnish media and abroad have paralleled Magenta Skycode with the likes of Air, David Sylvian, The Cure, Kings of Convenience, The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Cocteau Twins etc. A more accurate comparison also would be early/present electronic movement. The songs of MS have an affectionate connection with songs of their peers. Indeed, "IIIII" is a masterpiece of its own â€" described well in Drowned in Sound as "a debut marked out by subtle, warm songwriting and hopeful spirit."

people:
jori sjöroos: voice, guitar, accordion, computer
tomi mäkilä: organ, synhesizer
niko kivikangas: drums, percussion
henry ojala: guitar
kalle taivainen: bass

i'll be going to see them tomorrow night on a club gig - really looking forward to that! :smth023

Wow... I hope they come to the states (not likely, huh?). Neat stuff! I just checked out 'Red Eyes' and will have to check out the rest once I get home from work.

Not sure if I will be able to find the album around here, but luckily a friend from school was from Finland, and moved back there shortly after graduation. I'll have to drop him a line soon...

glad you like them! i've been really been thrilled about this group lately, and i'm really interested in seeing them live. they haven't played so many live shows around here so far either, i think.
