CD Review: Finland's Islaja. Islaja is the name of Finland's Merja Kokkonen. Her latest album, Keraaminen Paa Ceramic Headis a Finnish language album of avante-garde folk and experimental electronica. Though, Keraaminen Paa is a fairly lo-fi recording with moments of electronic instrumentation similar to Norway's Sorten Muld and contemplative vocals that are a bit more bizarre in the vein of Sweden's Sofia Jannok and Iceland's Bjork.
The earthy sounds do not necessarily reflect a melodic pattern, but the shamanic beats of "Rakkauden Palvelija" contrast with the spacey, atmospheric sounds of "Ihmispuku". Islaja's voice is mysterious, haunting, and full of life. The modern folk-electronica genre in Scandinavia is widespread and varied. However, Islaja's sound also takes on similar tones and melodies with the Faroe Islands' Valravn. Basically, anyone into Scandinavian folk-electronica with ambient leanings will enjoy the slower, more adventurous tones of Keraaminen Paa, Tujuhuju - Various - The Womeximizer 11 (CD).
The Finnish liner notes are also translated into English. Posted by Matthew Forss at PM 2 comments:. Labels: avante-gardeFinlandfinnishfonalforssislajakeraaminen paasamiScandinavia.
