Ratto Ja Lehtisalo

More dementeds from Finland...

Unnerving in the same way as being confronted by enthusiastic but friendly visitors from Sirius B are Circle side project Rättö ja Lehtisalo, which take their cue from 80s space-Hawkwind electronicals and stir in some almost Neu-ish motorik krautrock...simmering gently into a faintly europop stew...

This is not typical of Circle and the rest of the Jewelled Antler like Finnish drone/urfolk/Dada/Lokki bitches in that the sound is bright and clear and disco rather than steeped in woodsfolk and fire crackles but it's still kind of affecting in a Fluxblog kind of way... Kraftwerk are perhaps the nearest this really comes though lacking the steely, glacial determination of those fellows...

Oh I don't know. Just have a listen. Maybe, like me, you'd prefer it on the third listen if the vocals were tuned down a little lower or drenched in Moravian babble...
