2. Delay Trees - Steady (Official DIY Music Video)

    Delay Trees Readymade album has found a very welcoming audience worldwide, recognizing the band’s own distinctive take on dream pop textures whilst nudging experimental borders. Steady personifies this approach to the max, an intense, metronomic build up grows into Rami Vierula’s laconic, dreamy vocals. Just as Steady feels like it disappears the track erupts into cacophonous drum fills whilst retaining it’s steady (sic) ring.

    Steady’s video reveals the origins of Readymade’s album cover design. It’s been much commented on, and is almost iconic amongst our album sleeves. The Readymade album cover is often compared to Peter Saville‘s design for New Order‘s Temptation single. To be contrary to this line of thought, a precarious cycle ride reveals inspiration sometimes comes from the most mundane surroundings, where accidents lead to coincidences.

    The video was made by Delay Trees bass player Sami Korhonen. A one take effort with no edits, riding the bike and filming with a smartphone in one hand! Sami also designed Readymade‘s sleeve.

    Readymade (Soliti 019) is available direct from us via our Soliti Shop in Vinyl & CD formats (each order comes with immediate album download) http://solitimusic.com/product/delay-…
    or a direct digital download in various file size from our Bandcamp page (5€) http://delaytrees.bandcamp.com/

  4. Sister Flo: The Look

    The 12th September 2014 sees the reissue of Sister Flo’s influential Tragician’s Hat album, almost 10 years to the day after it’s initial release. As well as the original album you’ll find a whole bonus album of outtakes and hard to find tracks.

    The Look is a track that because of a clerical error didn’t make the reissue (oops!) To make amends, you can download The Look for free. A worthy, slow-burn gem that easily ranks as one of Sister Flo’s most unusual yet brilliant tracks.

    Mastered by Mika Värtö @ VILD Mastering.

  7. Black Lizard - Burning (Music Video)

    Video by Katariina Salmi

    Black Lizard return with the Burning EP, the follow up to their much praised self titled debut album. Black Lizard still thrill with their psych rock approach, but the Burning EP brings in more prominent electronic elements and disguised voices. Once again Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) has mastered this new Black Lizard release, with production duties handled by the band themselves. The Burning EP provides a handy stop-gap between albums with Black Lizard’s second full length album due early 2014.

    Title track Burning precedes the EP on the 4th August, featuring a yellow coloured themed video from Finnish photographer Katariina Salmi. What was that about yellow being the color of madness?

    Paltsa-Kai Salama: Vocals, Guitars
    Joni Seppänen: Guitars, Keyboards
    Lauri Lyytinen: Bass Guitar
    Onni Nieminen: Drums and Percussion
