The solo project of Jonna Karanka, one of the prime movers of the Finnish freak folk contingent (Avarus, Maniac's Dream, Anaksimandros, Herta Lussu Assa etc.), Kuupuu's legend has spread quite a bit thanks to the efforts of Dekorder Records, who've compiled tracks from her first four CDR releases across two compilation LP's, though this first release of hers traverses a bit different territory than the bulk of her releases that follows on from here, as the wispily warped and gauzily ephemeral detunage of her ghostly methodology originally possessed a bit more of an assertive edge, though relatively speaking, this is still a pretty gossamer affair, plinking and warbling away in inspired naif style.

More contemporary Finnish Underground stuff please. I'm usual iffy about the ethics of posting material so recent, but so many recent Finnish discs are essentially unfindable unless you're a dedicated record collector with infinite funds. I'm guilt of having taken this scene for granted, having heard one too many 'getting weird out in the woods' combos three years or so back, but it seems it's evolved at an amazing rate. The new Kemiallist Ystavat disc is astonishing.

More out of print Finnish underground stuff please! It's tragic how many of these discs are out of print.
