sammal Suuliekki (coloured vinyl LP, £22.50)
3rd studio album by Finnish progressive rockers. Finland´s Sammal´s third album Suuliekki, continues where the critically acclaimed Myrskyvaroitus left off, not following in its footsteps, but rather taking a turn into uncharted territory, as this was the first time the band really had to start writing from scratch, after taking a little break, from playing shows and composing. The material never comes too easy, and many ideas are thrown into the “some other project” or “this simply isn´t good enough” bin. Song sketches have to sort of boil in a pot, different ingredients mix and flavours merge over time, before they can really be called songs, or compositions if you will. On this record maybe more than ever, each individual band member’s musical taste takes centre stage at times, without stealing the spotlight from the one thing that´s always been most important to Sammal.
