Retreating in embarrassment from the debacle that is
The Brit Awards I found both respite and comfort this
evening in Husky Rescue's new album 'Ship Of Light'.
It is a gentle and captivating experience.
Music to wash over and around you like a warm wave.

The lovechild of Finnish musician/composer Marko Nyberg, this
most recent manifestation of his muse delivers nine beautifully
constructed songs following a brief ambient introduction.

Electronica on a human scale; uncluttered and endlessly
facinating. The rhythmic and melodic material is brought
to life through the quiet intensity of Reeta-Leena Korhola's
enchanting voice. Her performances are simple and effortless
but define the distinctive beating heart of everything we hear.

Whether in the soft pulsing beat of 'Sound Of Love' or the
more abstract and elusive composition 'We Shall Burn Bright'
Ms Korhola inhabits the music like a free and sparkling spirit.

'Wolf Trap Motel' (the title troubled me for a moment as you
can probably imagine!) is an understated gem of a song.
Following a lengthy but engaging introduction, shot through
with rolling layered keyboards and keening guitar, the voice
erupts like a ray of sunshine bursting through grey clouds.
The cumulative effect is magical.

Final track 'Beautiful My Monster' is an intriguingly fragile
and captivating confection. A dreamlike atmosphere is conjured
out of the repeated quasi-medieval vocal roundelay and haunting
electronic treatments. It brings the album to an otherworldly close.

Music for both mind and spirit.
Husky Rescue in their own little way make
the world a better and brighter place.

Highly Recommended.

Y'know how it is; sometimes it's not by word of mouth, nor media play, it's the band's name or the album cover, hooks you in and will not let go until you've delved deeper and experienced the music. I'm glad I made the effort- (it was the name by the way)
I'm late in discovering the ambient music which Scandinavian bands are making their own; Ship of Light is an excellent example of this genre and is worth the investment. Let me explain further.
The album is comprised of hypnotic, gentle but persistent electronic music, which reminds me of a calm sea, mostly placid and relaxing but occasionally one wave rises, in this case the intensifying of electronics in conjunction with the drums, and floating through this an ethereal voice; cool, clear but not lacking in emotion; sometimes plaintive, other times thoughtful edged with anxiety or warning.
Of course being a Scandinavian they band can write and sing English far better than many UK outfits, the poetry and imagery of the lyrics being particularly powerful, conjuring up all manner of images. I would be hard pressed to single out a favourite track; `Wolf Trap Motel' is a good example of the standard though, mostly a slow, hushed and restrained instrumental, again that rising and falling of the sea, leading up to the brief lyrics describing indeed a motel where guests are free to come and go... or is that so? Will they be forever held, enthralled in this remote enigmatic location; it would be difficult to decide when reflecting upon that short almost ghostly lyrical interlude.
Captivating album, well worth the investment for a journey to evocative places.

Husky Rescue's founder, Marko Nyberg, has described his group's music as being "like spring's sunbeam after the long, dark, sunless winter time". (source: The Guardian). But the thaw is on it's way.
This is the third album from the Helsinki band and the best yet. Reeta-Leena Korhola's icy voice melts slowly atop a synthesiser pop backing of the type that Air once aspired to.
This is charming, intelligent and thoroughly grownup pop. Recommended.
