The latest reviews:

Laki & Järjestys - Uusi aika

Hell Stone Records - LP -

1286_laki_full.jpgFirst full album of this Finnish band is out on CD/LP and the title can be translated like New Age and you may check 9 songs in their mother tongue on it including Sparrer´s cover I´ve Got Yout Number under the name Pidä varas). Playing time is around about 25 minutes. CD version will be out as a digipack in the middle of July with bonus songs from the first EP, gatefold LP will be out at the end of the year. Song titles can be translated like Streets of Tomorrow, Fire still Burns, Evil World, Horizon or song dedicated to Rebelllion festival or Fair Game II (on their first EP is first part of this song). Whole album is well done and I like when the band sings in their native language...I really like (best from the LP) second song Huomisen kadut (check it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl5CgM0RPVg), then Rintamamiestalo with fine acoustic beginning and covered vocals or classic fast one Perjantaina illalla. Fine piece.

Hammer and the Nails - s/t

Lionheart Records - EP -

1285_hatt_sac.jpgBoston based bandwhich has already released many singles has now brand new EP, now out through Lionheart Records. EP was made in four versions (green and red cover with soldier – 110 and 125 copies, 10 gold test pressings and 325 with bunker cover). Together you may check four songs – Sparrow and Crow and It´s Never Enough on side A, theese songs are new and re-recorded East Meets West and cover from post punk/new wave band XTC No Thugs in Our House on side B. The first song Sparrow and the Crow is absolutely great and it follows the footsteps of their previous albums and it is about hypocrisy. Second one It´s Never Enough has great guitar which is little bit drowned in strophes but during refrain it rises. Original version East Meets West can be checked on We Breed Ugly compilation. This version is new recording and it is about the clash of cultures. I can not rate the cover because I don´t know the original tune. To the EP is added paper with lyrics, small card with info about your version and sticker. This is perfect EP and who like Boston bands must have this in his collection (if it is possible to buy it somewhere).
