Paavoharju are another of those Finnish bands on Fonal whom I love. I was really torn as to which song to offer, and I’ve kind of given up and taken the strange one in the middle. “Ilmaa Virtaa” is… god, I always feel like Jilly Goolden talking about wine when I try and describe these things. Sepia-coloured dark ambient choral chiptune with hints of glitch and found-sound. How’s that for some total bollocks? Except that it’s absolutely true. I never lie to you.
It’s off the CD “YhÃ¤ hÃ¤mÃ¤rÃ¤Ã¤”, which you can find at Fonal, of course, and in the UK it’s also available from Piccadilly. American readers will have to search a bit, though Google threw up a link to Other Music.
Note also that Paavoharju are due to release a free mp3 EP on Miasmah in mid-March.
The fileâ€™s good for seven days, unless Iâ€™m asked to take it down before then, and is presented for review purposes only.
