- Back From The Futer



Aavikko, the „original Yamaha-Boys from Siilinjärvi“, are back again! Referring to the album-title the boys obviously spent the four years since the release of their last regular studio-album ihn the (mis-spelled) future. And to our delight they brought back a space-shuttle filled with shimmering pop-gems of extraterrestrial quality.
By no means we want to degrade their last releases, but on „Back From The Futer“ Aavikko present themselves in a shape they haven’t been really in since their first full-length “Derek”. A completely upside-down universe, lived with electro-mechanical dogs, musical-singing cyborgs, robots and NeoZulus… Again Monsieurs Leppänen, Kosonen and Staufenbiel astound us with a truly bizarre record. Particularly delightful with this extraordinary trio is their ability to reinvent themselves once again. In this case they found the perfect blend of their so characteristical hooklines, a remarkable surplus of (lofi-)electronics and a surprising seriousness. A perfect tightrope walk between chaos and pop-appeal returning soundwise

to the strengths of their early works and thus being more trashy than for instance the last studio- album “Multimuysic”.
And Aavikko got more experimental! Be it the almost surrealistic mood of the Theremin-driven „P-Piste“ (played by Lydia Kavina), the singing cyborgs on “Futer City”, strange analog-electronica (electric harpsichord on „Una Lira Soluzione“), or Tomi Kosonen’s explosive saxophone attacks on „Wot Wot NeoZulu“ (this might be known to one or the other from Kosonen’s side-project „Astro Can Caravan“). Great – like with every Aavikko release – again the cover-artwork in typical, trashy Aavikko-style, accomplished with amusing liner-notes by Biff Johnson (who also did them for their “best-of”-comp. „History Of Muysic“). We claim this is the best Aavikko album so far! Believe it or not!
