  • Eloranta Esa & Marko Haavisto - Kymmenen miljoonaa (CD)


    Marko Haavisto ja Esa Eloranta olivat syksyllä 2018 samalla keikalla Sallassa. Keikan jälkeen keskustelu johti Pelle Miljoonaan. Yllätyksekseen molemmat huomasivat Pellen äärimmäisen suuren merkityksen omiin nuoruusvuosiinsa. Samana iltana lausuttiin alkusanat Kymmenen miljoonaa -albumille. Tässä vaiheessa viereisessä pöydässä istunut Janne Haavisto ilmoitti liittyvänsä mukaan. Tosiaan siis sananmukaisesti ilmoitti, ei kysellyt. Lopulta Miljoonan markan kvartetin täydensi vielä Olli Haavisto. Ettei asiat jäisi puheen asteelle, niin loppuvuodesta 2021 E-Studiolla taltioitiin 10 Pelle Miljoona -klassikkoa, joista ensimmäinen Mulla menee lujaa julkaistiin singlenä 18.2.2022 ja toinen Moottoritie on kuuma julkaistaan 6.5.2022.

    Alkuaskeleista asti onnellisten tähtien alla seilannut tribuuttihanke sai virallisen siunauksensa, kun itse Pelle Miljoona vierailee mukana kahdella raidalla.

  • Huojuva Lato - Utopia, Texas (CD)


    Pohjois-Karjalan härmäkantriylpeys Huojuva lato käytti koronatalven 2021-2022 hyväksi tekemällä uuden pitkäsoiton jolla kuullaan kantria eri muodoissaan. Levyn avaava Pyhä Severi rokkaa Wilcon ja Son Voltin tyyliin. Waylon Jenningsin ja Don Williamsin 70-luvun jättihitistä Amandasta on valmistunut uusi käännös Manta. Radiolaulu on suomennos Doug Dillardin & Gene Clarkin 60-lukuisesta unohtuneesta countryrock-helmestä The Radio Song.

    Kaukaisiin saariin -kappaleella Huojuva lato yhdistää suomirockiin John Mellencamp -vaikutteita ja päätösraita Tie päättyy meren rannalle on suorastaan kantriprogea neljine alaosineen. Myös folk-vaikutteet kuuluvat vahvasti. ”Ehkä tämä asenne tulee esikuviltamme ja ystäviltämme Freukkareilta, jotka olivat valmiita kokeilemaan vaikka mitä tyylejä ja leikkimään niillä”, arvelee bändin nokkamies Suonna Kononen.

  • Leigh Brennen - Obsessed With The West (Feat. ASleep At the Wheel) (CD)


    ’I’ve been obsessed with western swing since I was a kid, and it’s always been an influence, but my records in the past have ranged from bluegrass to hard country to folk, So I’ve never fully explored it.’ So says genre-busting Fargo-born, Austin- incubated, Nashville resident Brennen Leigh, whose new collaboration with the kings of modern-day western swing, Asleep at the Wheel, Obsessed With The West, is a showcase not just for the Bob Wills fans, but for anyone who’s ever curled up with Loretta Lynn, Hank Sr., Cindy Walker, Billie Holiday, or Willie Nelson. On twelve all original songs, Leigh’s supple winking voice and multi-instrument fluency, her interplay with Ray Benson, and the undeniable chops of the Wheel serve up a treat on Leigh’s seventh album. With cameos from Emily Gimble and Katie Shore, and all the players getting their moments in the sun, Leigh – a two-time winner of the Texas Music Awards Best Female Vocalist award – demonstrates on the terrific jump 40’s rhythm and blues, ’Comin’ in Hot’ and the lonesome cowboy musing of ’Riding Off Onto Sunset Boulevard’ why Rodney Crowell and Lee Ann Womack have recorded her songs. Obsessed With The West is a celebration of music for music’s sake in 2022, not just an exercise in looking back on times gone by.

  • Coffinshakers - The Curse of the Coffinshakers 1996-2016 (3CD Boxset) (CD)


    Ilmestyy myös CD boxina (19.08.2022)

    CD box set, thick booklet

    Formed in 1995 in Karlstad, Sweden by Rob Coffinshaker, these graveyard country pioneers have been steadily putting out records, most of which have now become highly sought-after collector items. The Coffinshakers successfully merged the imagery of German expressionist cinema with traditional country sounds of Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, occasionally flirting with Ennio Morricone -style melodies and the 60’s surf-garage sounds of The Ventures. Topped with full-bodied lyrics and Rob Coffinshaker’s haunting, low register voice, this combination gained them a cult following in the late 90’s and 2000’s, and they even creeped up to the Finnish top 40 with their self-titled album in 2007.

    Svart Records are proud to announce the official Coffinshakers reissues, which have been in the works for a couple of years now. These reissues include the full length albums We Are The Undead (1998) and The Coffinshakers (2007). This deluxe CD box includes both albums, a bonus disc (From the Crypt – Rare and Unreleased) and a thick booklet with a lengthy interview and archive material. The bonus disc is only available in the box set and includes rare compilation tracks, EP releases and a handful of unreleased tunes from Rob Coffinshaker’s personal vaults.

  • Quinn David - Country Fresh (CD)


    nspired by an old ashtray he found in a Nashville emporium, inscribed with a label that read “Country Fresh”, David Quinn found the impetus to sum up his feelings about the grandeur of America’s vast heartland.

    Having left his Midwestern environs to live in the country and isolate himself at the peak of the pandemic, he allowed nostalgia to take hold and reconnect him with the muse he was motivated by initially. A purveyor of a sound fondly referred to as “Black Dirt country music”, he created songs seeped in everyday circumstance, shared from the perspective of those who experience life’s highs and lows through both discovery and desire.

    Country Fresh reaffirms Quinn’s uncompromising everyman attitude. While some tend to compare him to John Prine — after all, both were born in Chicago and each tends to take the same approach to humor and happenstance — Quinn tends to fall prey to disappointment and despair more frequently.

    He surveys the path forward with dire circumspect on the aching ballad ‘Long Road’ and shares his search for satisfaction with ‘I Just Want to Feel Alright’, shading the songs with a vulnerability that often verges on despair. Indeed, honesty is essential here, giving Quinn a well-rounded appeal that makes any challenge as pertinent as his triumphs.

    That said, Quinn is mostly a celebratory sort. The rousing refrains that soar through the title track, the double time tempo of ‘Low Down’ and the effusive enthusiasm he shares in both ‘Boy From Illinois’ and ‘Heartland’ — two obvious odes to his original environs — make his contentment clear.

    Likewise, the upbeat appeal of ‘Cornbread and Chili’ and the steady stomp of ‘Grassy Trails’ assert a certain satisfaction in the life he’s been destined to lead. That’s never more evident than in the ebullient strains of ‘Easy Life the Breeze,’ a song flush with the joys of a life spurred by desire and determination. So too, when he shares a story about his grandfather, the man that inspired him to follow his dreams, with the album’s final entry, ‘Hummingbird’s Song’, the listener is left with a clear understanding of Quinn’s essential early inspiration.

    Quinn enlists an exceptional group of musicians to complete his task, among them Nashville veteran Fats Kaplan, a player who takes the lead in several of these songs. Kaplan’s versatility on fiddle, banjo and dobro adds extra illumination to many of these melodies, and in so doing, underscores the ebullience and exuberance shared throughout. Quinn himself is a decidedly understated singer, his matter-of-fact delivery ensuring that the scenarios he sings about state a case, sans posturing or pretense.

    Ultimately, that makes Country Fresh a more nuanced narrative, one that’s both revelatory and revealing in its tone and temperament. So, while the comparisons to certain rugged forebears may seem inevitable, it’s a pretty good bet that Mr. Prine would be proud.

  • Eddie Lane’s Railroad - Same (CD)


    Eddie Lane’s Railroad Revue perustettiin Helsingissä 2019 tavoitteenaan julistaa countryn viskin tuoksuista ja maanläheistä ilosanomaa omin sanoin ja sävelin. Ensimmäiset keikat soitettiin vielä lainakappalein, mutta nykyisin orkesterin ohjelmisto koostuu hyvin pitkälti omasta materiaalista. Railroad Revuen meininki yhdistelee bluegrassia, modernia monisointukantria, outlaw- ja Johnny Cash-kantria.

    Tässä levyssä kuuluu entisajan lämpöä ja patinaa. Olemme kuitenkin yhtämielisesti sitä mieltä, että se on inhimillisesti musikaalisempaa kuin elektroninen ja epäluonnollinen kliininen hiljaisuus. Solisti Eetu Laine on säveltänyt ja sanoittanut debyyttilevyn kaikki kappaleet, yhtä lukuunottamatta. Old Cars & Bikes on basisti Joni Roligin käsialaa, kuten myös muutamat muut keikkasetissä olevat, tälle julkaisulle vielä ehtimättömät kappaleet. Levyn on äänittänyt ja miksannut Jari Pätsikkö, joka hoitaa levyllä myös kitaraosioita. Levy on äänitetty perinteisin menetelmin 8-raitanauhurilla Helsingissä vuosien 2020-2021 aikana.

    Levyllä soittavat artistit:

    Eetu Laine: Laulu, Kitara, Mandoliini & Lap Steel
    Jari Pätsikkö: Kitara & Banjo
    Janne Sampo: Laulu & Kitara
    Joni Rolig: Laulu & Basso
    Päde Ketola: Laulu & Rummut

  • Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway - Crooked Tree (CD)


    Recorded live at Nashville’s Oceanway Studios, Crooked Tree was produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and features collaborations with Sierra Hall, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski, and Gillian Welch. The album explores Tuttle’s lifelong love of bluegrass-a genre she first discovered though her father, a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, and her grandfather, a banjo player. Across these thirteen original tracks, all written or co-written by Tuttle, she simultaneously honors the bluegrass tradition while also pushing the genre in new directions. Tuttle says, ”I always knew I wanted to make a bluegrass record someday. Once I started writing, everything flowed so easily: sometimesI’ve felt an internal pressure to come up with a sound no one’s heard before, but this time my intention was just to make an album that reflected the music that’s been passed down through generations in my family. I found a way to do that while writing songs that feel true to who I am, and it really helped me to grow as a songwriter.”
