LEBAKKO: Elävien Kuolleiden Yö: LP

Tough one to pin down. I mean, really, I have no reference points that seem quite apt, which is frustrating as hell. Four Finnish dudes doing a jangly, almost mathy, almost post-punk thing with warbling vocal melodies and confident, concise musicianship. Clean guitars and odd structures. Hüsker Dü meets… Minus The Bear? The last song on the record’s a precise, sped-up little instrumental number that’s layered with a spaced-out guitar solo; it works flawlessly, is over way too soon, and serves as a brilliant closer to the album. Definitely an interesting band.
