Paavoharju “Ikkunat Nakevat”
Paavoharju are one of those bands that I have liked quite a bit in the small doses I have heard (specfically their 2008 LP Laulu laakson kukista), but have never dove into who they are or what they are about. The Finnish group have a new rarities/outtakes EP Ikkunat Nakevat (the title track is streaming below), which collects material that has not been released from the groups last few years. In honor of that, I checked out the groups wikipedia page, which told me that they are ascetic Christians, and no, I didn’t know what that was either. Apparently it means you abstence from worldly pleasure, but luckily for us the group don’t deny us that right with their excellent, hazy pop music.
