“Untitled”

The first piece from this young Helsinki artist’s new cassette, Ylitse, on Michael Jantz’s (Black Eagle Child) Avant Archive label, is a staggeringly beautiful construction of soft loops and tape-distorted tones that I could listen to for hours without thinking a moment has passed. That aching, blurry melody. This is his first full-length album and seemingly definitive release, coming after several CD and CD-R releases as Ous Mal on Australia’s Preservation and UK’s Under The Spire.
