Röyhkä ja Rättö ja Lehtisalo are Finnish musicians Kauko Röyhkä and Rättö ja Lehtisalo's collaborative 2009 record on Eketro, Hiekkarantaa. Continuing the poppy kraut sound of Circle memebers Rättö ja Lehtisalo while adding the super catchy Finnish pop vocals and lyrics of Kauko Röyhkä. The only way I can describe this record is too fucking good! Highly recommended, enjoy!

Kaksi Lensi Tuulen Mukaan
Kauko Röyhkä & Riku Mattila's album kaksi lensi tuulen mukaan. Amazing Finnish pop songs that continue to get stuck in my head more and more after each listen. This has been a constant jam, after hearing Röyhkä ja Rättö ja Lehtisalo's Hiekkarantaa on Circles Ektro records. Highly recommended, enjoy!

Mortitz Von Oswald featuring Sasu Ripatti of Vladislave Delay. Highly recommended, enjoy!
"Following the almost unanimous praise for their previous studio masterpiece, Moritz Von Oswald (Maurizio/Rhythm & Sound), Max Loderbauer (Nsi./Sun Electric) and Sasu Ripatti (Vladislav Delay) present 'Horizontal Structures', the jazz-suave and rolling x-axis to the kosmische y of 'Vertical Ascent'. The curve of their projections becomes more complex with the addition of Paul St. Hilaire (aka Tikiman) on guitar and ECM artist, Marc Muellbauer's double bass infusing deeply instinctive jazz moves into the cats-cradle of organ, percussion and electronics. There's a more leveled spirit and cruising groove to this album, their deft interactions creating a deeply engrained blue moodiness and playful efficacy whose potential is beautifully rendered in Moritz's mixing desk. As the elements begin to fuse like condensed gas particles in the bell jar sphere of 'Structure One' its clear to hear the group's evolution as the groove subliminally coalesces with a looseness that wasn't there before, Tiki's Afro-lilting guitar swirling about like fragrant hashish smoke and Muellbauer's eyes-shut bass adding daubs of melodic colouration. 'Structure 2' is more urgent and soundtrack-y, melody stripped back while the rhythm section ripples away with infinite Krautrock essence, before 'Structure 3' reintroduces the dub with moonboot skank rhythm hinging on crisp snare punctuations and offset chords in the dreamiest headspace. The 20 minute 'Structure 4' is perhaps the craftiest, Moritz the mixing board illusionist deftly weaving the acoustic and electronic, the synthetic and the real with a sleight of hand that makes this music at once electro-acoustic jazz and dub concrète, yet with the fundamental grace and glide of deep techno."

Demdike Stare, the duo of Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty haunting droning occult dub installment Elemental. Starting as four limited edition vinyl installments on Modern Love, Elemental is pieced together with extended material on a 2xCD. These guys are easily one of my favorite things happening in contemporary electronic music and Elemental only continues to push that barrier with songs sounding straight out of a cult horror film or ancient civilization that you can either drone out or even dance to. Highly recommended, enjoy!

Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II
The second installment for Earth under the Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light title. Similar to its predecessor recorded in the same sessions, II demonstrates more continuous folky riff patterns from Dylan Carlson with a beautiful cello backing by Lori Goldston, which in my opinion is the backbone of the record. This has the best flow of the two records and though it is melodic and slow, I still catch my head banging slightly. Enjoy!

Glitch pioneers' Oval 2012 release OvalDNA. A compilation of 25 songs of new and unused material, OvalDNA is a solid record after years out of the game. Enjoy!
