Fadeaway  performed by  Laika and the Cosmonauts  (1990)
Composed by Mikko Lankinen
From: Finland
Mood: twangy, atmospheric
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Saturday 5th March 2005

No one talks about this band much. Not in my experience, anyway. It's all instrumental, so I guess they're not for people who are lost without vocals and lyrics. But have a listen - to me they really seem utterly superb. I would love to see them live.

I only have a couple of albums, but they're great. This one was released in 1996 (shit - that was 9 years ago!), but recorded in 1990. Really beautiful twangy surf-pop that fits in perfectly with the whole David Lynch mood that I find so appealing. The album is an intoxicating mix of energetic surf tracks and slower, more atmospheric ones like this. Their recent 'Local Warming' album is great too. Can anyone recommend me any more of their tracks?

from Zero Gravity (Upstart 006), available on CD

See Laika! Se Laika run! Go laika, go!
