Released on vinyl LP in April 2018, together with labels Jumi Kustannus and Gafoni.

Edition of 250 copies.


"Teoksen päälinja edustaa viime vuosituhannen puolella syntynyttä, mutta nyt jo kuopattua uusrahvaanomaista luomu-avantgardismia, joka itse valmistamillaan sähkötyökaluilla porautuu ajoittain hieman punaviiniltä tuoksuen syvälle undergroundin juurien tuolle puolen. Teoksen keskiö säteilee riemukasta vapauden tunnetta, koska sen rakenteita ei ole tiukasti - onneksemme ei edes löyhästi - köytetty sävellajeihin, rytmiikkaan, eikä muihinkaan perinteisen musiikkikulttuurin hikisiin toteemipaaluihin. Pystyssä päin se kuohuu raikkaasti pärskyen eteenpäin itselleen valitsemaansa kapeaa ja rosoista uomaa pitkin aina onnelliseen loppuun saakka."
