The New Tigers: Don’t Know Where to Go Categories: Finland • Rock • Videos The New Tigers: Don't Know Where to Go Imperfection has its very own charm, and music is about feeling more than anything else. That said, Finnish pscyh-pop quartet The New Tigers was - with a couple of exceptions - a bit too imperfect for my liking on their eponymous 2011 debut and simply did not connect with my ...

Mayflower Madame: Into The Haze Categories: Norway • Rock • Videos Mayflower Madame: Into The Haze Released last year and shamefully ignored by me (not out of spite - just a case of disappearance in the mail avalanche) Mayflower Madame's debut EP, 'Into The Haze', is a great, 4-song addition to the new Nordic post-punk wave, touching on all the usual inspirational suspects of the genre ...

Mikko Joensuu: Land Of Darkness Categories: Finland • Rock • Videos Mikko Joensuu: Land Of Darkness Way back in 2009, when ALL SCANDINAVIAN was not even a year old, I featured Finnish psych-rock trio Joensuu 1685 quite a bit with a SpaceScan here, a Q&A there and a Springsteen cover that really should be everywhere. Unfortunately the three - brothers Mikko and Markus Joensuu and their ... (Click To Continue Reading)
