Vinyl pressing. Originally released on CD by Poko Records in 2004, this is the debut full-length release by Ville Leinonen. This is a musical journey to the shores of imagined inner lands and to the Scandinavian forests of hopes and dreams. These songs are moments of beauty from nature, cities and villages. It's autumn in Finland. Freezing wind blows from ItÃ¤meri - the sea. Rain washes the streets of Helsinki. Suudelmitar expresses knowing and understanding foreign cultures as they appear in common everyday life and music. Sweet and nostalgic flamenco-styled guitar and strident, trilling flute evoke a troubadour, street musician vibe. Bossa nova grooves are carefully orchestrated with horns and male and female jazz duets, and there's even a surprising sitar jam. Laid-back indie lounge for world travelers riding on a joyful breeze.
