When you'll press play and listen the opening track "Alempana Kuin Enkelit" and the following one "Aristorotat _ Risuilla Tayteyssa Salissa" of the amazing new album by Finnish Jan ANderzen-led hyper-psychedelic super-group Kemialliset Ystavat, you could fantasize about a division of an imaginary Willy Wonka industrial group which works in the carpentry sector by means of an harmonious enslaving of Oompa-Loompas who got reskilled after the risk of social turmoil when a ferocious round of layoff got pre-announced and trained giant beavers with diamond-cut front-teeth, whose importance for the launch of hybridized cherry and sporuce pine Xmas tree which got thought for keep on celebrating Xmas in springtime (check cover-artwork!) got praised by a schizoid supervisor! You could surmise that tracks like "Roiske Ruudukolla" or "Nijura" got based by a possible flow chart to describe logical sequence of cognitive processes by Tim Burton's Pee-Wee or other weird characters or that this weird agglutination could came from a laboratory experiment which combined genes from Terry Riley, Raymond Scott, Esquivel and Negativland, but you could also perceive paranoid or nostalgic break within the weird whirligigs of bleeps, synth-spurts, honky-tonky strokes, field recordings, vocal samples, toytronic melodies, crazy arpeggiators and ebullient hodgepodges of sonic entities which manage to make such a listening experience even more adventurous and emotionally overcharged. That's a very funnily popping sonic medley, folks!
