Alamaailman Vasarat - Valta
The sixth CD release from this long-time favorite of everyone by this six piece Finnish ensemble consisting of saxes/contrabass clarinet/tubax, trumpet/alto horn, pump organ/piano/melodica, two cellists and drums. Their unique, heavy sound mixes folk, klezmer and Eastern European forms with RIO complexity and surprising heaviness at times (all hail fuzz-cellos!), distilling it all into a sound that doesn't sound like anyone else on the planet. There are no radical shifts here: their signature sound is full in place. For fans, this is another great release and for newbies, this is an excellent starter place if you want to experience "The Hammers Of Hell" (The Hammers Of Hell is what Alamaailman Vasarat translates into in English). Highly recommended.
