Madden and Harris - ‘Will You Be There’

The 1970’s Australia-based duo, Madden & Harris, colored a British folk inspired sound with an exceptional fusion of progressive rock and classical music.

Good luck getting yourself a copy of this one… “Fool’s Paradise”, the band’s only album, was issued as a private pressing, numbering only 500 copies. Luckily, some of us have gone digital.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi - ‘No End’

Jaakko Eino Kalevi is a Finnish breed of Ariel Pink and John Maus.

Dreamy synths, staccato bass and stuttering drums meet saxophone, and it all gets psychedelic.

Fun fact #1: he used to be a tram driver in Helsinki.

Fun fact #2: he supported Ariel Pink in Helsinki, and Ariel later slept in his bed.
