I found "No Death" last night on the interwebs and it stopped me in my fucking tracks. I played it in the outloud.fm room last night and the response was pretty similar with those guys. Best we can tell, it's an original composition...which makes it even more :O

I've since heard the album, and even though nothing therein is on quite the same level as "No Death," this girl is on some completely different plane and in harmony with all the elements of the universe. She's TAPPED IN.

Pretty sharp, acoustic Mazzy Star even more spooked out.

Totally get the Phaedra comparison, much more of an obvious Leonard Cohen influence though.

I would never have guessed her background

Hah, me neither! I remember seeing a video of her and thinking she's some upcoming British musician or something. Then later on I heard an interview, and was totally surprised to hear her speak the same Finnish dialect as myself.

Glad this is resonating with some other people like it did me. :D

It's got 60's vibe as thick as custard, don't think I've enjoyed anything quite that retro for a while.

Several songs on the album just feel like they've been around in some form since time began and she snagged them and put a name on them. To her credit, that is. The way they unfold is exactly the way they should, if that makes sense.

3 weeks pass...

this album is so incredible - so still, and her lyrics are really evocative

lex pretend, Wednesday, 22 February 2012 13:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

1 year passes...

agreed, so good, i still put this on all the time. love it so much i did a time-stretched version of "No Death" going into the original at the beginning of this mix: https://soundcloud.com/chantssound/no-death-in-winter-mix

also i hear there will be a new album! if the s/t record was all she ever recorded it would sort of make sense, but i'm excited for more.
