ECHO IS YOUR LOVE/KEMIALLISET YSTAVAT-S.T., SPLIT LP, 1999, FINLAND



A rare and largely forgotten split LP from the 90's Finnish underground, this platter finds Echo Is Your Love (still apparently extant and whom their Wiki entry describes as "noise rock") working a seam of languid and distortion laced femme vox indie pop and they certainly do it nicely enough to be appreciated by those that go in for that sorta thing, but it's the earliest era of Finnish free folk/communal psych stalwarts Kemialliset Ystavat that's bound to be the attention getter here. At this point, their more expansive and psychedelic gestures were a few years ahead of them, the scrappily playful material at hand lurching in fits and starts from decrepit no wave screech to lobotomized toy instrument torture.
