Mika Vainio / O / Kentolevi / Philus / Tekonivel

"They bestride the Earth." John Peel said that once on his old BBC World Service show
to introduce a Fall song and as a vague reference to how he would often stretch his
own programming rules in their case. I feel the same way about Mika Vainio. Unfair
preferential treatment is in order and a new release must be celebrated. Vainio's recorded
works have been in the areas of techno (as O, Philus), installations (Onko), out electro-rock
(Pan Sonic and Endless), and finally soundscapes, which is where In The Land belongs together
with Kajo and Ydin. In this context and that of nineties and naughties electronica, In The Land
is hardly radical but it is exceptional. Vanio's work has a quality and coloring that is uniquely
seductive and the finesse with which he applies his personal voice to a variety of tasks sets him
apart. For example, the very short opener 'Sunder Here, Sailor' is a vicious attack of animal and
machine noise that, without diminishing its power, has a watery metallic sheen that makes the
meaning ambiguous and defies to be labeled as noise. Throughout the album Vainio combines
familiar material with the alien, and friendly production with the downright disconcerting so as to
keep both the soundtrack to the imagined movie dynamic and its narrative interesting. The only
lulling you'll find here is temporary. But ultimately what overwhelms is the music's sheer melancholic
beauty. 'The Colour of Plants', of plain and simple construction, just a handful of throbbing drones
and pure tones, sings of the deep yearning for and impossibility of transcending our deadening
corporeality. 'Snowblind' returns to a favorite resource of Vainio-amplified hum. At only six minutes
long it develops a into monumental resonant chord with depth and emotion worthy of its drone
music heritage (see the Charlamaine Palestine review in this edition). One more important difference
between Vainio and many of his colleagues in electronic music is his commitment to what's known
in the wine industry as low-yield-the notion that one cannot allow a vine to produce copious fruit
without diluting the wine and that to make a concentrated wine, the vine's vigor and productivity
must be either naturally or artificially curtailed. As numerous artists have demonstrated, electronic
music is very easy to make and the whish-washy results of high-yield methods are abundant.
In contrast, Vanio's stance seems almost defiant.

Yes, Mika Vainio is back with another bunch of masterpieces smile.gif
Sahko is the first underground label of Finland, started in
1993.It is the finnish term for "Electricity". The label became
best known for its scarce, ultra-minimalist sound and exactly this
is what you will hear on this double pack.

Your eyes are not deceiving you! What we
have here is brand spanking new material from none other
than Mika Vainio - otherwise known as one half of Pan Sonic
or simply Ø. Recorded earlier this year, this is the first
new material from the Ø project in a few years and is just
as seismic as you'd hope. 'Ikuinen' is Vainio's take on
synthesized moodiness, some kind of robotic Finnish
exploration into the work of John Carpenter. Through
sloooow reverberating beats and wavering high pitched
synthesizer sounds we are introduced to a moody widescreen
world of flickering neons and desolate concrete tower
blocks. This would make the perfect soundtrack to an
Eastern European take on Blade Runner, all menacing, grey
and mysterious, and I don't think there can be much higher
praise than that. Both sides are essentially two parts of
one long, brooding track and I have to say that this was
the kind of record I've been hoping to come from Vainio for
some time now, it's a wet dream for someone like me who
not only fetishizes Sähkö but also the whole 70s synth
movie soundtracks genre in general. To hear this veteran
producer attempting something like this is just a dream
come true, and while people expecting a 4/4 minimal techno
monster might be shocked, I've no doubt that it will
quickly turn into reverence. A totally essential 12" from
one of the world's finest electronic musicians... just buy
