Rätto Ja Lehtisalo - "Kopernikus Hortoilee Näkinkengässä"
(Ektro Records 023)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: September 2003
This is quite a cool CD. Great music for driving down the highway. This features Mikko Rätto, singer in Moonfog Prophet (KUUSUMUN PROFEETTA) and Circle on vocals, drums and keyboards, Jussi from Circle provides the bass and guitar, while Aki provides the lead guitar. It is very repetitive like Circle but the groove is more laid back and not as intensive and there are cool layers of synthesizers. Although the vocals are all in finnish and I can't understand a damn word, the vocals are very interesting. If you are a fan of Circle and enjoy mellow groove music and a bit of a psychedelic trip, pick this one up. Great stuff!
