Railo by Hannu Karjalainen
Climate crisis music made during a wintery pandemic lockdown
Glitchy textures ruffle gently as long, drawn-out synths combine with quaking bass and ethereal visions. It's a powerfully unsettling message when read in the context of climate crisis but as noise catharsis it's a delightful ambient companion piece to escape.
Third album from Karjalainen on Finland's Signature Dark label is out digitally on Friday 19th, with vinyl following later.
