Kemialliset Ystävät - Suurempi pieni palatsi (2001)

Here's another incredible album of chimerical, twilight sounds from our chemical friends from Tampere, Finland: Kemialliset Ystävät. This one was released way back in 2001 on the French label, Alice in Wonder records, and this is certainly a record that leaves the listener in a state of wonderment. Difficult and nonsensical on initial listens, perseverence pays dividends as their communal abstractions break out into soundworld of exquisite beauty and bottomless melancholy.
Here's a suitably wobbly video for Nykyajan Tanssi:


01 Puretaan Teltat
02 Hurja Taivas
03 Kuin Kaste Aamun
04 Sinistä Hohtaa Kangastus
05 Nykyajan Tanssi
06 Tallattujen Kielojen Surumarssi
07 Vuorille
08 Sytyttäkää Suitsukkeet
09 Pieni Palatsi
10 Heikoimmista Tähdistä
11 Urasorsalle
12 Sateen Varjo
13 Lammikko
14 Katkennut Rauhanpiippu

Get it HERE.

Hi Icastico,

Hope you enjoy this one, although its an entirely different kettle of fish from the Kuusumun Profeetta lp.

This is Dominic from from the San Francisco experimental label Gigante Sound. We recently released, Motown Meltdown: Volume 2, a free viral download record of bizarre re-workings of well known Motown hits all sourced from the original multi-track and karaoke recordings. These are not 'remixes' over a breakbeat but complete re-imaginings of Motown classics. As one reviewer wrote of the first volume, "I think they took the Motorcity sound to "Git Mo" to torture it before they murdered it...I have sampled in the past and may again in the future,but I never inhaled...whatever these guys did. " WFMU were big supporters of the first record as were many college radio stations around the US and as far afield as Portugal!

We are now promoting Motown Meltdown: Volume 2 and wondering if it caught your interest, if you wanted to put it up on your blog. This roots approach is really the only way we have to publicize the record so we are approaching various blog sites who's taste we feel is similar to our own and see if people are interested in writing about it. You can find it here:

Again, it is a free download so feel open to do whatever you want with it! Thanks for your time
