If you want to take a trip back in time courtesy of a new band with a debut album for this year this is the album-if there ever was a time where I felt like I was back in the 70's for the majority of this album takes you there.
(From the band's bio)
"Sammal began when we were staying at our singer's summer cottage one autumn, listening to classic rock and prog LPs with a barely functioning vintage turntable. We had played in English language bands for some years, and that night we discussed our common interest to write songs in our native language and to follow the freely flowing creative spirit we heard on these records. We wanted to use music and the Finnish language to paint landscapes that are completely alien to modern day stress and musical pigeonholing. Free association and freedom of expression are still at the core of Sammal", comments guitarist/keyboardist Jura Salmi.
This is a great trip back and a testament to the styles of music that was played back in the day and yes even though they sound like they are from that era, they have their own sound, here is a video(below)to prove that.
