Hey, what do you think about that album? Comsat Angels is a band whose albums I've been trying to find for some time now, but without success. They're one of those Factory bands that were influenced by Joy Division, I think, or am I confusing things here?

a great (imo) experimental/"folk psychedelic"/not-sure-what-to-call-it band: Moon Fog Prophet: 'lyhtykuja'




moon fog prophet: 'kovin lentäen kotiin kaipaan'


& related projects (from moon fog band members)
"Classic doom on one side, folksy medieval psychedelia on the other" (http://www.ektrorecords.com/ektro.php):

http://www.ektrorecords.com/samples/Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo_-_Soihdut_Nostakaa_(clip).mp3



Well, I've heard about Reverend Bizarre before, it's the kind of metal band that actually seems to be available on record shops. I haven't checked their sound before, though (that sample you posted here is a bit short). However, i had no idea they were Finnish...

Those are 2 completely different songs by Moon Prophet you posted here. It sounds like 2 different bands!  :shock: One of them is really jazzy ("Kovin lentaen kotiin kaipan"), with a really cool electric piano solo there in the middle. I like it.  ;) The other one has a good trippy rock (?) motive but it would probably take some time from me to like those vocals. Still, I don't hate them, and that's a not-so-bad start, I suppose.

By the way, I really like the guitar playing on Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo_-_Soihdut_Nostakaa (I suppose Ratto_ja_Lehtisalo is the band name and Soihdut_Nost is the song...?  :-D ).
Fluid and kind of spacey - again, there's a clear jazz thing on this one.

ok finally i start getting it a bit more right, what comes to recommendations... ;)

that's true: actually you never know what they do next, what to expect from them. they've done some projects which are closer to some kind of experimental classical music (like on the album 'hymyilevien laivojen satama' = "harbour of smiling ships"). so it can be anything between jazz, folk, progressive rock, classical... they also do performance kind of stuff, and their website is full or writings, art... everything really. i suppose they are truly weird "renessaince people" in that way.

yes, ilkka rättö is the singer in moon fog prophet, jussi lehtisalo comes from another experimental finnish band called Circle:

Just out of curiosity:

Does 'lyhtykuja loppu' mean "light at the end of the tunnel" or something like that?

not quite. i think it should actually be 'lyhtykuja: loppu' (like here:
http://www.last.fm/music/Kuusumun+Profeetta/_/Lyhtykuja:+loppu)
'lyhtykuja' means something like "the lane of lanterns" and 'loppu' is just "(the) end".

They are awesome.
But only first 3-4 albums are post punk/dark/new wave.
In later years they went a bit pop...

I had already visited that Circle's site... Took the opportunity to check a couple more songs - I like it. All 4 songs displayed there are done in a repetitive style, but in a way that sounds good to me.

I'll tell you one thing: a band that call themselves 'teemu elon puhuvat eläimet' are certainly not planning on having an international career any time soon...  :-D I also liked both songs on that site - and liked the singer's voice, although he is not a great singer. I'm not a fan, though, of the vocal "effects" on the chorus of the first song, and it also appears to me that there are a few things in their music that sound a bit too retro (for instance: those harmony choir voices at the end of the second song).

some vintage Simple Minds:

this fear of gods

lovesong (promo video) - a great video! :D

i travel

thirty frames a second

'premonition' and 'factory (live '79)

re-discover this band! :P





Very good choices!  ;) But it seems to me that "Sons and fascination" is under-represented in your selection. Let me add then:

"Seeing out the angel"

"This earth that you walk upon"

http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=hMmnjtV2YBs


Hell, all the songs on the album would do...
