Veli-Matti O Äijälä
“Anna kuoleman tulla”

It is with great pleasure that I copy/paste artist name Veli-Matti O Äijälä. (And hey, while I’m at it, Äijälä also goes by Läjä Äijälä, Äijälä, Läjä, V-M Äijälä, V-M. Äijälä, and Veli-Matti Äijälä.) Check out “Anna kuoleman tulla” from Äijälä’s one-sided LP “Raskas Taakka,” which was just released on Finnish labels Joteskii Groteskii and Vauva. It’s suffocating and fidgety and that’s how I like it.
