The voice of this Finnish lady can be fairy-like and stunning like Linda Perhacs, or desperate and fragile like Billie Holiday. The rhythm alternates between folky hand clapping and repetitive mantras, the sound grates like the Velvet Underground, Tom Waits or post-Beefheart psychedelica. Islaja: Finnish and feminine blues.
