Tomutonttu - Tomutonttu (2007)

Here it is. The long awaited Finnish music I was downloading. At least the first of a few artists who I ran across. However, this isn't really something completely unexplored, it is Jan Anderzén's solo project. For this unfamiliar, Jan Anderzén is the mastermind behind the most amazing of Finnish avant-garde-noise-folk groups, Kemialliset Ystävät. Absolutely of the same caliber of musical preformance as his group work, Tomutonttu feels like a glow-in-dark display of sound. A Lite-Brite bombardment of the ears if you will. Believe it or not I thought of that before I even saw the psychedelic album art of this release. The album itself is more or less par for the course among Fonal Records releases: electronic, folk, ambient and noise all rolled together and flowing freely betwixt. Interestingly enough there is a whole bunch of sample sounds liberally placed about the album, mostly being nature clips of birds and barnyard creatures. Really as potential of sending one for a loop. For a fella that hates Michigan winters already I can't seem to get over music from cold climates.
