KEMIALLISET YSTAVAT-NUU HA NI HAKA, 3" CDR, 2003, FINLAND






For anyone with even a tangential awareness of current Finish underground sounds, Kemialliset Ystavat's delirious sonic formulations will require little explanation. Their drugged and bleary moire-patterned universe of detuned psychedelic stumble being in many respects the formative gesture from whence sprang a thousand current lesser lights dotting the contempo freak folk landscape. Nuu Ha Ni Haka (released as part of the Jeweled Antler Library of 3" CDR's) was the first recording to follow their landmark Kellari Juniversumi, an album that brought to fruition the full depth of their cockeyed spellcasting. A wee bit less fine-tuned in it's approach, it nevertheless is deeply suffused with that sense of "otherness" that so many of their freak folk brethren aspire to but usually fall short of.

thank you! I've been *trying* to follow their career... but here in the states, unless you know someone who knows someone, their albums are impossible to find. even the web is sparse... so thanks again!

Yes, the MACOSX files are all there, but the other format mp3s are missing tracks 2 and 5. I've downloaded this twice now from two different sites (through xirror) and neither of them have tracks 2 and 5.

wrenwreath-I just had a friend download this on his PC and all 5 tracks are there once again. It's your PC that is having issues.

Message for first 'Anonymous', all their Fonal releases are now available for legit download from emusic if you subscribe to that. I know what you mean about the difficulty in following their career. You could order all their stuff direct from Fonal, but its damned expensive.
