Editor’s Playlist: 29 June 2015

It has been an exceptionally busy few weeks for us here at Soundscape after travelling to Finland for Nummirock and the recuperation period, but we’re back and how about we get things properly on track with a brand new playlist for you to get involved with? Check the songs out below, or listen over on our last.fm page.

Silent Voices – The Fear Of Emptiness
We’ve already heard the new Silent Voices single Darkest Night, and you can check out our review of it later on today, but if you can’t wait until July 2 to hear it, you can listen to their previous single, The Fear Of Emptiness, which will hopefully tide you over until then!

Poutatorvi – Double Bladed Sword
Whilst at Nummirock Festival, one of my friends from Vorna introduced me to this excellent instrumental jazz/prog band and I’ve been hooked on them ever since, having picked up their entire discography on arrival home from Finland! This band knows how to write an earworm or two, and if that’s not enough for you, they’ve also recorded a Mega Man cover song!

Kuolemanlaakso – Minä elän
It’s not exactly a secret that Kuolemanlaakso is a personal favourite band of mine and I am very pleased and excited to say that I will finally be getting the chance to see the band in about a month’s time from now at Kuopio RockCock, with a bunch of other good bands. Can I wait one more month to finally see this band live? Well, I suppose I will have to – but it’s going to be a very long wait!

Turmion Kätilöt – Pyhä Maa
Also playing at Kuopio RockCock is the awesome Turmion Kätilöt, who I am also extremely excited to see live. The band are also going to be releasing their brand new album Diskovibrator later on this year, so hopefully this will mean we’ll be treated to a few new offerings at the festival as well.

Anna Murphy – Twin Flames
We covered Anna Murphy’s debut album Cellar Darling about two years ago and last week she released a remixed version of the album to the people who pledged to her Kickstarter campaign that was used to fund the offering, so what better excuse than to share one our favourites on the album with you, Twin Flames?
