• islaja Meritie (CD, £6.75)

    label: Fonal Records

    'Merite' is her debut release, and a damn fine one it is, using all the trademark sounds and textures adored on her follow-up. From the irresistible vocal harmonies of 'Emoa Ikävä' and the evocative glockenspiel led 'Kämmen, Kynsi, Kieli' to the dark and atmospheric Jandek-lite dirge of 'Halpaa Kultaa', this is an album filled with surprise, mystery and masked beauty.
