    jayrope’s latest album You’re a poplar morning person (Dec. 2021) is a full-length exploration of what’s emotionally left, when you don’t even start using generic repetition, harmonies, melodies nor tunings: iridescence & depth.

    The latest Air Cushion Finish album Lamb’s Quarters (Dec. 2021), with Canadian tape-based artist Nick Kuepfer, is a rewind to ACF in 2014, still standup-track-/songwriting based, however blissfully in search of a place beyond, within tape glitch & methods of abstraction.

    Recently at the zoo – three longer wordlessly story-telling works, partly abstract, partly full-on natural.

    Air Cushion Finish’s double 12” FLINK, recorded & mixed at Hotel2Tango/Montreal, for Lullabies for Insomniacs. turns out to be their most succesful album yet. The vinyl is near sold out, however concert visitors are welcome to buy from ACF directly or digital below.

    Reviews
    ‘Offering something akin to inserting a tape head in your nasal cavity and running a spool across it and thru your ears’ […] ‘There’s no way we’re going to sum it up in words.’
    ‘Hypnotic chants, whisperings, screams soaked into lot of filters and electronica. Under virtuoso guitar rhythms. It’s a really magical musical realism […]’
    ‘A provocation to not take yourself too seriously.’

    On ABCDEARBUDS, Air Cushion Finish’s merge with Berlin-based saxophone and synth authority Niklas Kraft, at Pracht/Leipzig.

    Television Workshop album “It’s in to die inside” means minimal noise rock, post rock, no rock, simple electric guitar classics.

    Infamous future- and no-jazz players Kimmo Elomaa were sleeping for some time, however, their tremendous improvisations on drums and live electronics have finally made it up on Bandcamp aswell. And now in Nov. 2021 they are recording a new album.
