Hertta Lussu Assa / Hertta Lussu Assa - 4000383
Gnomic no-fi plunk, wheeze, rattle and moan courtesy of an unfortunately monikered (well…at least to English language readers anyway…it probably means something just lovely in Finnish…) supergroup comprised of Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu, Laura Naukkarinen aka Lau Nau and Merja Kokkonen aka Islaja that draws from the seemingly eternal well of stoned detuned mischief that feeds the viaducts of the Finnish underground. The sheer density of acts positing variants on this same post-Amon Duul / Siloah-like freakout stylee there gives rise to questions of bandwagon hopping, but that’s a discussion for another time. For the here and now, this first release of theirs is a choice manifestation of heavy-lidded third-mind acoustic weirdity that’s as ungainly as it is mystically/chemically blasted.
