This time on 14tracks:

“14 tracks under the spell of Fonal Records ”

Finland's celebrated psych folk shamens are in charge of this week's 14 tracks selection. From their base in the city of Tampere, the label has curated a stunningly unique catalogue of sounds, roving between the lysergic small-sound electronics of Jan Anderzen's Tomutonttu project and his free improv unit Kemialliset Ystävät, to the enchanting psych-pop of Islaja, the magical arrangements of Es and the breathtaking cosmic wilderness of Paavoharju. There are few other labels in the world with such a distinctly psychedelic aesthetic and the ability to captivate and beguile with every new release, so if you've not checked the label yet, this is a prime entry point to a truly fascinating world of individual sound. We think this is one of the loveliest 14 tracks to date, please investigate and explore it with good company, preferably in your nearest forest. Enjoy!

Take part! Leave a comment!

“If only I could speak Finnish...”

Utterly absorbing selection. I'd never heard of this label before but I will definitely be checking out their back-catalogue. The tracks all have fit together well as one long listening experience too. What the song titles mean though is anybody's (non-Finnish) guess. Does it really matter though?

“Wonderful”

As a regular UK visitor to Helsinki and my top Finnish friend, this is a wonderful reminder of the quirkiness and delight in experimentation endemic to those nothern shores. Thanks loads for this collection.

ps - I don't know what you'd call it, but could anyone recommend a collection of ambient sound stuff - by that I mean recordings with natural sounds of the world going by - but not anything like that New Age drivel on CDs sold in health shops? I mean experimental stuff with the clatter of trolley cars, children playing, the scrape of the sky and so on....

“In the field”

Hey Trevor, back in the beginnings of 14 tracks there's a collection called "In The Field" (I think that's the name?) of experimental music collected from the everyday sounds we just normally filter out.
