"Unilintu" is the second of two vinyl-only LP's on the Dekorder label compiling the best material from Kuupuu’s first four CD-R and cassette releases, this time presenting a slightly darker and even more coherent sonic vision compared to last year’s gorgeous "Yökehrä" LP which we sold out immediately (2nd edition is now available).

Here’s what we said about the first LP:

Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu is one of the main movers of the (deservedly) much hyped Finnish Psychedelic Free Folk scene. Originally hailing from Tampere she is known as a core member of Avarus, Anaksimandros, Kukkkiva Poliisi and Maniacs Dream. Additionally, she has recently started Hertta Lussu Ässä with Lau Nau and Islaja and has collaborated with Tomutonttu (aka Jan Anderzen of Kemialliset Ystävät) and Paavi (as Lussu ja Paavi).

This LP is a beautifull collection of haunting (sometimes spooky) home baked freeform folk songs, strange lo-fi loops, vocal drones and psychedelic cut-ups, made using weirdly tuned plucked and strummed strings, bells, clattery percussion, unidentifiable wind instruments, backwards tape loops and a ton of other noisemakers all played and recorded by herself; accompanied by her distinctive voice (often looped and layered) with vocals sung and whispered in her native Finnish language making the whole atmosphere even more haunting and mysterious. Jonna Karanka creates an intimate space where the listener feels like sitting next to her in a small chamber or outside in the woods where Kuupuu sings a lullaby just for him.

"Of all the many travellers in the Finnish psychedelia scene, Kuupuu is surely one of the most enigmatic.(.....) Among the Finnish leftfield, Yökehrä is second only to Es's Sateenkaarisuudelma in its meditative intensity.“ (The Wire, September 2006)
