Artist: TSEMBLA
Title: Fauna
Format: LP
Label: Ikuisuus
Country: Finland
Price: $19.00
"More mysterious electro-acoustic Finnish psych-folk. Dont hear too many lyrics on this one, but as would be expected, the titles are all in the native tongue, so Im not sure whats going on. But as with Kemialliset Ystavat and similar artists, theres a playful mix of broken-sounding synths, acoustic instruments, bird calls, small percussion, and plenty of other exotic sounds. For whatever reason, side 2 grabbed me a lot more than the first. I think its a little more straightforward, rhythmically, and theres also more of a Boards Of Canada distorted childhood memory vibe to it. Its quite pretty. As a whole, though, the album isnt quite as energetic, schizophrenic or densely constructed as Kemialliset Ystavat, but its definitely worth checking out if youre into that style." - Paul Simpson, Foxy Digitalis.

Title: Nouskaa Henget
Format: LP
Label: New Images
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"TSEMBLA is the musical work of MARJA JOHANSSON, a Swedish-Finnish artist operating out of Turku, Finland. Utilizing a wide range of instruments, electronics, objects and manipulated samples, Tsemblas music rides on waves of warped melodies, fluttering rhythms, abstract voices and mutating textures, crossbreeding the known and the imaginary. Nouskaa Henget ("Spirits, Rise!") is her third release and follows the Tuplafiesta 7-inch, released by Jan Anderzens Vauva label in 2009, and Fauna LP, on the Finnish Ikuisuus label in 2011. Loosely assembled, rough-edged compositions, rich in details, come together into odd instrumental miniatures in an almost pop format, venturing into fourth-world territory from a wheezing and boiling DIY kitchen inspired by Moondog, Ruth White, Raymond Roussel, LAFMS, Jon Hassell, Anton Bruhin, Rene Daumal, Suzanne Ciani and folk musics of the Andes and Asia. Two of the tracks feature flute wizard ANTTI TOLVI (RAUHAN ORKESTERI, LAUHKEAT LAMPAAT, etc.)." - New Images.

Artist: TSEMBLA
Title: Tuplafiesta
Format: 7"
Label: Vauva
Country: Finland
Price: $10.00
"Decay and copulation rites flourish around a trash raft that fish take for a coral reef. The sun blinds your eyes, but you can see a figure there... And in the desert, wind, erosion and echoes work the surroundings of Poly Styrenes ex-hang-out, an oasis filled with lively people and empty beer cans. Ornamental carpets and fresh water, too. There it is again! Its Tsembla playing her modified samples, strings, reeds, percussion and the whole range of modern psych instruments to create fiestas with strong twists of pop music. Sounds old and new and like nothing youve ever heard before."
