    SIINAI LIVE AT THE EURSONIC FESTIVAL

    Finnish band Siinai released their debut album ‘Olympic Games ‘ in 2011 - a synthesized wall of sound and huge krautrock hymns with giant hooks. These Finns are masters of building up songs that reach an ecstatic climax, and, if there were medals for music, Siinai would have won Gold. They proved this with their mammoth performance at the Vera venue in Groningen in January at The Eurosonic festival.

    Recorded at the Eurosonic Festival on January 10, 2013 for the Eurosonic Partnership of the EBU.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PRIMAL SCREAM, ENEMIES, & THE CHILD OF LOV

    We’ve three gems for you this week, the debut album from The Child Of Love, Enemies’ second long player, and Primal Scream’s tenth studio album. Even getting to the stage where you’re released ten albums is a major achievement these days. ‘More Light’ is strong album, mixing the band’s electronic side with their retro tendencies.

    ‘Embark, Embrace’ finds Enemies in buoyant form, adding vocals to their mix. If you like their previous album ‘We’ve Been Talking’, you’ll be into this. It’s almost three years since they released their debut, and ‘Embark, Embrace’ sees them making a considerable jump forward.

    The Child Of Lov’s self-titled album is going to be one the debuts of the year for me. It’s one of those albums that twists and turns, never sticking to any particular formula – it’s a keeper!
