KEIJO [2016] WHNZ:68:TDNGHT

"I don't deny my mind is wandering in blue."
— Keijo Virtanen


You can't possibly start a record with a better note.
Karmic scale search being pulled apart by the psychic free saintly spirit floater: Keijo.
Even saying his name out loud makes me think he's on the hills of my shoulder good angel music-is-as-life conscience, and that makes a day more choice-heady flowing.
The man's comfortable playing his way out of any time, in deep total mess-blues, picking all of the worries and pensive reach-inside, picking at what takes us out of ourselves (or turns us into), the junk/gunk highlighted almost-depression before it's formed. We tend to keep that buried down tight and closer to the heart (and metaphorical heart) than we'd like, and he'll grab at that, yank the torch that's out-of-burn and hold it like the catch of the day (all of this is being continuously caught at by his prolific touch) and blow it all alight in flame-thrower peacefulness.
A virtuous down-out ritual brought into the day's sun and warmth, made shining.
Keijo cleans the glass for us. We just have to know how to accept this gift.
Each taped-over guitar or walking-bass throttle or drum-touch (maybe a cymbal too) flips around under new riff-leads bleeding their voices out into the endless puffed ether of the mind/lung combo. Be it throat or the probing and attackless freaking out, it's always the guitars plucking away in perfect casual coating unison. The amplified (in perfect beater tone) strings gurgle and bubble like fish jumping out of water into safer, purified nets of euphoric existence.
An unagitated mind-over-matter blues for the should-never-end: it strangely zaps you out of the enthralled drug-cloud when the supernatural turns invisible and closes shop. And once ended: skips over to another plane.
Keijo is already axing a new set of breezes under his ageless and nomadic near-goof full-soul's tutelage.
It doesn't ever end. And we accept his gift.

Please, mind the FMA source (MP3@320). It's the main source. Support FMA. Them are great.

ULAAN KHOL [2015] SALT (SOFT ABUSE)

Spacetransgressor rides again with the stuff so close to highest hopes. Trips 'n trance to you all. 2015 wishes almost came true. Now it's time to end the war in my country.

ANDRIJ OREL [2015] WHNZ​:​67​:​STDLP


Lately, as a solo artist, Andrij Orel (as a team member also caught guilty at Riasni Drova, Riasni Drova Consort, Noah Coward, Moglass and W.B.B.B.) follows the cat path of playing mostly in-house concerts. This one was played at a friends' house with a large living room in his hometown Lviv, Ukraine, on Nov 21, 2015.
All pieces, except encore, written by Andrij Orel.

LOREN CHASSE [2015] THE SODDEN FLOOR (NOTICE)

THE THING [2015] SHAKE (TROST)

I was DDB this October, but now i have to admit: this THING have absolute top position among the news i've heard. For those who have some doubts i suggest to start from number 7 (Aim). For all the rest who interested in whole shape of an apple — start biting from the first piece.
PS: This is the cassette version not the CD one, which is shorter and lacks few diamonds.
