Label: Black Horizons

Title: Alitaja Ylimina
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Alitaju Ylimina" is the first vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a marvellous fold-out sleeve with a full-colour drawing by Uton himself on the outer sleeve and some fierce black&white illustrations by dutch artist Christelle Gualdi inside. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere and currently travelling and recording in India. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. The music of Uton is no exception there, drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. Recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of Hirvonens sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze - gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and Cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät) among others. The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) will be released on LP by Dekorder later this year." - Dekorder.

Title: Straight Edge XXS
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
""Straight Edge XXS" is the 2nd vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the Dekorder label. It comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by Hirvonen himself. While Utons last Dekorder album "Alitaju Ylimina" (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely diffferent affair. Recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to India, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a Nonesuch Explorer LP of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. Or is it World Music from an unknown planet recorded by those Sublime Frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions? Well, it is all that and more. It is pure ecstatic expression channelized through Psychedelia, Free Jazz, Noise and rural ancient Folk Music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. One of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar Uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and Cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät) among others. The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) is released on LP by Dekorder simultaneously." - Dekorder.

Title: Unexplained Objects
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Unexplained Objects" is the 3rd vinyl-only LP by Finlands Uton for the Dekorder label, like his previous Dekorder albums released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a beautiful full-colour heavy duty sleeve designed by Hirvonen himself. While the last albums explored rural soundworlds from the outer reaches of this planet and hidden places of the inner human (and animal) mind, he has finally left planet earth completely and is now reaching out for outer space and alien communication. Hirvonen seems to have traveled the spaceways, bringing home folk music and field recordings from faraway planets and alien cultures. Erich von Däniken beware! Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) has been released on LP by Dekorder as well." - Dekorder.

Title: Mystery Revolution
Format: CD
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"One of Finlands best kept secrets returns with a new album, and a sonic excursion through the Finnish forests unlike any other. Massive drones are balanced by the hypnotic dance of flutes, bells, and keyboards. Underneath everything runs a mind-altering stream of fuzzed-out brainwaves. Every corner you turn, theres another smiling nymph, begging you to follow the golden path into the mystic woods. UTONs minimalist rumblings are there to infect and enchant, and never fail to impress. "Utons a genius & I always love his art, album titles & cryptic noise mud-slides. Great forestdrone, shortwave, bowed guitars? ... I dont know what he uses, but it all sounds mysterious & subconscious, dreamlike."- Glenn Donaldson, Jewelled Antler.

Artist: UTON
Title: Were Only In It For The Spirit
Format: CD
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"For the past five plus years, Uton has been one of the most consistent projects to come out of the snowy confines of his native Finland. His output has been constant, but the quality is always great. His drones have always been underscored with a sense of melody and a keen utilization of the space where the music was created. These songs are not icy or glacial, though, like one might think. Uton has an uncanny ability to inject an inviting sense of warmth and spirit. Were Only In It For The Spirit is ghost music; barely there and out-of-sight in the blink of an eye. The man responsible for these masked-spirit journeys is Tampere native, Jani Hirvonen. Hes collaborated with the likes of Jan Anderzén (Kemialliset Ystävät, etc), Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra), & Anla Courtis (Reynols), among others. When it comes to enchanted, sprawling drones, Hirvonent is a true Rennaissance man. He is joined by Vapaas J.P. Koho on all tracks, who complements Hirvonens delicacy with subtle hints of chaos. Were Only In It For The Spirit continues to trek through new worlds of sound, polishing off the once-rough edges of Utons sound into something that acts as a beacon in the void. Dark, brooding drones for guitar and electronics flicker and fade like a distant, stellar horizon. Hirvonen is a master craftsman, and Koho is his perfect foil. The two play off each others every move and produce an end result that rivals anything Uton has released previously. Were Only In It For The Spirit is a magical piece of work." -Digitalis

Title: Echoes in the Wonderland
Format: LP
Label: DNT
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"After countless releases on labels such as Housecraft, Digitalis, Dekorder, Sloow, etc. and his own label, Om Ha Sva Ha Ksha Ma La Va Ra Yam, UTON finds a new home with DNT. Echoes in the Wonderland is the first full-length LP by Finlands JANI HIRVONEN since 2009s Unexplained Objects (Dekorder) and is no less weird than his previous excursions from the outer regions of the cosmos to the minds innerspace. As the album title could say, this is a way to the "wonderland" (also called the "other side"-many names been used during the history of humankind), which shouldnt be mixed for the adventures of famous Alice-even it might give some idea about what is going to happen, but thats just a start of it all-the start of nothing else but listeners mind. What are the "echoes" then? They are something which are coming from beyond to here where we stay-this album being a link between these worlds; inside & outside; like they are working together. Psychedelic transmissions of consciousness. Bizarro alien communication thats difficult to pinpoint, Utons "sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze-gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust." (Dekorders words) Co-released with Finnish label Ikuisuus in a unrighteously limited pressing of 275 with full-color pro-printed jackets designed by Uton himself. The DNT edition is limited to 110 hand-numbered copies." -DNT.

Title: s/t
Format: Lathe Cut 7"
Label: Gold Soundz
Country: Norway
Price: $16.00
"2 new tracks from Finlands one-man psychedelic army. Dark and atmospheric, nodding slightly towards his CDR on Gold Soundz, the brilliant "XXX", but even more haunting and mesmerizing, but with the light occational tinkles of a piano being hit by a mudslide... Edition of 51." - Gold Soundz.

Artist: UTON
Title: XXX
Format: CDR
Label: Gold Soundz
Country: Norway
Price: $12.00
"A new great album from the Tampere, Finland psych-noise favourites. Quite a bit more intense and claustophobic than many of his previous albums. Perhaps somebodys put something funny in the drinking water... Uton has released many albums the last 2-3 years on Pseudo Arcana, Jewelled Antler and his own imprint Haamumaa. Edition of 100 copies." - Gold Sounds.
