Биография

Вокально-инструментальный христианский квартет из Швеции поет на шведском, финском и английском языках.
Они эмигрировали в США в середине 70-х годов.
The Scandinavian brother/sister foursome The Aaltos are unlikely to sound like anyone
you’ve ever heard before. Describing their music is quite a challenge — how about
a combination of Fiddler On The Roof and Swedish rock-and-roll? Bizarre instrumentation
includes psychy organ, lamenting minor—key violin and accordion, choppy electric guitar
and wild solos from what sound like a funky clavinet-ish bass synthesizer and an ocarina
(credits list something called an s-flute?). Timo Aalto provides the lead vocals with his
intensely strong accent, coming across as a highly energized Scandinavian nightclub version
of Elvis (those sunglasses and leather jacket are the bomb). Add all that up and you’ve got
something that’s both highly creative and wonderfully awkward.
Most songs written by member and multi-instrumentalist Ewa-Maria Aalto,
who along with her drumming sister Nina display some impressive lengthy locks of blonde hair
(the plaid ‘70s outfits on the back cover are a total hoot).
All but two of the twelve songs are in English. Took me forever to figure out some
of the pronunciations — “bittemess” comes out as buh-ter-nis, “jealousy” as juh-low-see.
Some irresistible tracks in here,
several with that homemade organ/guitar “psych” undercurrent that appeals to private press
collectors. I’m certainly diggin’ it. Gives a Cloquet, Minnesota address.
