maniacs dream Zanzibar (blue vinyl LP, £11.50)label: Arbor
Finland is the epicentre of collective music making. Under the name Maniacs Dream, members of Finnish bands such as Avarus, Fricara Pacchu, Kemialliset Ystävät and more come together to create blown out free rock. Their unique/bizarre approach to music making, constantly questioning the construction/deconstruction of sound creates songs at times recalling the electro acoustic clatter drone of Avarus crossed with tribal rhythms and intergalactic krautrock guitar zones. Total sonic freedom with a punk ethos directly influenced by a trip to Zanzibar prior to recording this record (which is a reissue of the long sold out tape originally released in 2006). In an edition of 450 records on light blue vinyl with printed labels and full colour pro-printed foldover sleeves with art by Benjamin Bergman and an insert.
