I hardly ever review major label releases due to the fact that I buy 95% of the music I review and major labels rarely release something worth buying. The Posies, Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow, Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Gene Clark, Emitt Rhodes, Margo Guryan, Lee Hazlewood, Teenage Fanclub, The Lemonheads, Evan Dando, Matthew Sweet, The Raspberries, Big Star, Badfinger, The Zombies, Jason Falkner, Left Banke, Stiv Bators, Brendan Benson, Ilona V, Sparklehorse, Ryan Adams, Whiskeytown, The Jayhawks, Wilco, Sloan, Trembling Blue Stars, The Heavy Blinkers, The Lucksmiths, Elliot Smith, James Iha, The Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, The Weakerthans, The Softies, Rose Melberg, Pipas, Neil Young, The Beach Boys and The Beatles. That list could go on and on and I probably forgot something extremely important, because I wrote that in 5 minutes. I try to keep the personal mumbo jumbo and sport related issues to a bare minimum and mostly focus on music only. Let's end this first blog post by saying that Cats On Fire's Our Temperance Movement is an absolutely fabulous record. A while ago Double D Records released a tribute cd to The Lemonheads entitled Drug Buddies.
I still miss ultrasport, but perhaps the griefing time should finally be over and it's better to be overjoyed about things like Future Gravity. I've known this french band Cheap Star for some years, because of their The Posies connections, but only found out today that they've released an album a couple of months ago. Anyway, back then I was always excited about my trips to Turku and several times a year I travelled to Turku just to see bands like Big White Monkees, Bridget, Ben's Diapers, Since November, Hundred Million Martians, Boomhauer play live.
Olavi Uusivirta's new album Preeria is a welcome reminder that sometimes the big boys do get things right, find an extremely talented songwriter and let him do what he wants to. The main focus is on Finnish pop music, but being a romantic fool who gets easily excited about anything that touches or moves him to tears, there will always be some pointless talk about pop and country records in general. After all, I still would like to be able to help finnish pop bands in getting a wider recognition (Ok, I haven't really succeeded in this questA  in the past, but one can still try) and scaring both of the future readers of this blog with personal craptalk probably isn't the best way to do it .A  Actually there shouldn't even be a need for this unhappy and miserable diving in low self esteem and loser-like behaviour.
Excellent finnish band The Phonies features on this tribute with their wonderful take on The Great Big No and at the moment you can listen to it on the myspace page dedicated to this tribute.A  Obviously I have no clue how long it will stay there,A  but it's there now.


This is the new project of ex-ultrasport Juho Kosunen and the first samplesA  sounds damn good to me. It's called Speaking Like an Elephant and half of it was produced by Jon Auer and the other half was produced by Ken Stringfellow. Because for me this dearest era and golden age of music is the 90's power pop, guitar pop, indie rock etc. Most of the music in this blog will fit into genres such as guitar pop, power pop, indie pop, country, alt-country, americana, because that's the kind of music that I love.
At this moment in time, I'm not sure will I post several times a day or once in every six months. This is because JYP won the finnish hockey league and I'm still smiling inside because of it. It really is worth all the hearts in the world and so far it's easily the main contender for my album of the year award. And because we don't own mountain bikes and are not outdoor types, could there be a better way to spend an evening than to sit in front of a computer listening to a great finnish band covering one of the greatest bands ever several times in a row.
Juho's own description "A bit like Jens Lekman with stereoids and off the antidepressants" gives you a hint about the style.
So The Posies connections are still there and it's certainly not a bad thing, because for me The Posies is the greatest band ever. Make up your own mind by downloading the first two songs from his website or listen to them on Future Gravity's myspace. Still just the fact it was produced by Ken & Jon wouldn't make one loveA  them if the songs weren't as great as they are.
Maybe it's just a nice little tune, but I've always loved it and it still recalls lots of good memories like audiences trying to force Saku to play Stockholm as an encore (thankfully he usually did end up playing it).


Maybe 20 years from now, some new pop generation will listen to Olavi Uusivirta with the same kind of overwhelming admiration that I have when I listen to Kaseva in this given time. Hopefully this will be a slightly better attempt and I manage to keep things going on at least for a while. How can I be that unhappy loser ever again, because this lifted ten years of teenage anxiety and a couple of king kongs of my back.
Okay, so far I've only heard these four songs that are on their myspace, but based on those I really like them and will order the album tonight. The title track on the other hand sounds almost exactly like the great Guided By Voices.A  I'm definitely hooked and convinced enough to order the album. I probably will keep it up for the time being and just add a link to this blog to the front page and forward folks to this little blog. Like that Matthew-boy used to sing " Everything is perfect in a way, but not today".A  That line is stolen from my brain function manual. There's a couple of bad songs and some not-that-good lyrics, but mostly it's a damn good album and hopefully more and more folks will start to notice that Olavi Uusivirta is able to create wonderful pop music.
One of the few things I'm really good at is being miserable eventhough everything is perfect in that big picture. Now after JYP won, I'm probably not even good at that anymore, because I can always remember this spring.
