By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Feb. 2010
Format: Audio CD
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.

By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Feb. 2010
Format: Audio CD
When I looked up this band on Google the first entry was for "The Siberian Husky Welfare Association (UK) which works on three fronts to address the Welfare Crisis in British Siberian Huskies". I readily admit that I was neither aware of the deep crisis facing British Huskies or equally who the band Husky Rescue were. With "Ship of Light" that situation has been fully remedied.

Husky Rescue are a Finnish quintet. This is their third album since 2004 and they comprise Marco Nyberg, Reeta-Leena Korhola, Ville Riippa, Anssi Sopanen and Miika Colliander. They are further evidence that something is stirring around the arc stretching from the Baltic to the Barrents Sea with the rise of excellent "Scandinavian" bands like Roskopp, Fever Ray, Jaga Jazzist, Lonely Dear et al.

The band recently received an ecstatic review in the Sunday Times where it stated that "songwriter Marko Nyberg and the vocalist Reena-Leeta Korhola have explored the kind of wintry, dreamy, sparsely populated sonic landscapes we might expect from Finnish musicians". But have these explorations produced any thing of worth?

On the evidence of the lovely ambient pop music on Ship of Light this is the band on the verge of seriously breaking out from downtown Helsinki and capturing a much wider audience. Check out initially "Sound of love" which gently floats on a lovely vocal by Korhola into a yearning pop song, with the chorus hook being so strong it could land a shark (check it out live at the Willmington Arms on You tube). I immediately played on repeat and the album grows with every listen. "Fast Lane" is also excellent and much more uptempo with a sharp guitar punctuating the song at about 1.30 min into proceedings.

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.
