Silmu, Ura Records / Pacific-Atlantic Records, Helsinki, Finland

1. REUNA: Upwenta (Album: Smelly)
A great chill-out track mixing sampladelic treasures with solid beats and a bag of multiple guitar textures. Strangely uplifting, must be the spoken bit bringing the locomotive-who-could to mind.
2. LINKIN' PARK: Points of Authority (Album: Hybrid Theory)
Teenage angst is a funny thing: all that steaming energy combined with strange drama, just excellent! If one wishes, there's traces of Cure, Depeche Mode, Public Enemy and Nine Inch Nails, among others, to be found here.
3. BLACK FOREST / BLACK SEA: Fish No Fish (Album: Forcefields And Constellations
Actually, what I'm referring to here is their recent live rendition of this song at their Helsinki gig. Bass and rhythm was played by Miriam on cello with Jeffrey providing wandering guitars bits. Live version was a bit more uptempo and confident than the recorded one, finally mesmerizing the already charmed audience.
4. THE CURE: Fascination Street Extended Mix (Album: Mixed Up)
Hailing from the innocent days of remixing, this track is designed for your prolonged pleasure. In these boombastic times it's also refreshing to hear a lead line that's actually using a harp sound.
5. ELTON JOHN: Goddbye Yellow Brick Road (Album: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road)
There's nothing like a high society breakup, then? Simply put: a masterpiece!
6. DIZZEE RASCAL: Sittin' Here (Album: Boy In Da Corner)
The hio hop source had better to keep their quality up with the Old World providing artists like this. Britain used to be as feeble a ground for hip hop as Finland, but both countries are finally finding their voices. An electrifying opener with its simple synth riff and boom drops.
7. AAVIKKO: Viiden asteen pakkanen (Album: History of Muysic)
An exact illustration of the life in inner Finland during the winter. Essentially a surf guitar track, but played with lower-end consumer Casios and Yamahas.
8. WENDY CARLOS: Air On A G String (Album: Switched-On Bach)
Tastefully arranged and beautifully realised in an age of monophonic synths, before sequencers or plethora of tracks on tape machines. A real labour of love.
9. MEW: Am I Wry? No (Album: Frengers)
Stadium-sized pop rock with some surprisingly progressive developments. Lyrics not to be scrutinized: just sing along to that original voice!
10. THE SHAGGS: Philosophy of the World (Album: Philosophy of the World)
If you want to hear the root of alt rock, this one's for you. Like the original liner notes put it: real, pure and unaffected by the outside influences.
