It ought to be crystal clear to everyone by now that all illusions must be shaken off the sleeves.
The corkscrews are tightening in an irreversible pattern. Will tomorrow rise as a world in which a man stands against another alone in the ruthless post-industrial wilderness, as a decadent survivalist-road warrior wearing not much more than a pair of broken hipster eyeglasses and a barbarian fur made out of dead lolcatz? The unknown of unknowns is opening right in front of us. This is the time when a person, be it a man or a woman, requires both balls and soul.
And that is exactly what the new Luomuhappo album is all about, metaphorically speaking of course. 'Pallit ja Sielu' is the album title, and it translates from the ancient Nordic murmur (also known as Finnish) into 'Balls and Soul'. It is the handbook and ultimate survival guide for any person and a spiritual guide in juggling between the paths of the left vs. right hand and realizing they're both attached to the same body. Or for those who just like really kickass psy-breaks- dubstep-disco inferno-suomisaundi-spugestep forest-trance boogie - a demolition derby of folk-music influenced exploding synths and drum machines that'll make you gasp for breath while anticipating the next punch.
