genre: freak folk
The Finnish wild wild folk underground came just in time with Devendra Banhart & Joanna Newson making waves with their "return to americana roots" music. Their take on folk is strange, but at the same time safe and predictable. If you want something really strange and disturbing, you oughta try things on Fonal. It is like being left out to the forest in Finland without any help, all on your own. Paavoharju's second album (the name translated as A Song about Flowers of the Valley) is pure magic, although it is not much folk as weird weird dream pop.
Other recommended albums by Fonal:
Islaja - Ulual Yyy
Eleanoora Rosenholm - Älä Kysy Kuolleilta, He Sanoivat
Kemialliset Ystävät - Kellari Juniversumi (2002)
ES - Sateenkaarisuudelma
