Mika Vainio, 1963-2017

E-mail Print PDF

We are extremely saddened by the news of the passing of Mika Vainio, as reported initially by Rumba and confirmed by friends. Vainio was best known for his work in Panasonic/Pan Sonic but had numerous solo albums, releases as Ø, and in collaborations, such as VVV with his Panasonic partner Ilpo Väisänen and Alan Vega.

He will be missed dearly.

Brainwashed had the special pleasure of capturing Pan Sonic live and interviewing Mika for The Eye back in 2006. It's a rare video interview of Mika in his own words describing his musical history prior to Panasonic along with his then current experience creating music (Click here for the video.)

Thalassa, "Bonds of Prosperity"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageThalassa is the new collaborative project between two titans of the metal tinged avant garde world of guitar:  Aaron Turner (Isis, Mamiffer) and William Fowler Collins.  Mythical and elemental imagery abounds on the four lengthy pieces split across two LPs, no doubt informed by the contrast of their respective homes:  Turner’s cold and damp Pacific Northwest versus Collins’ arid New Mexico home, but the two are entirely on the same page when it comes to performance.  Equally fitting into the worlds of old school ambient composition and metallic darkness, Bonds of Prosperity is as bleak as it is engaging.

Olson/Case/Hardiman, "March of the Mutilated (Vol. 1)"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageSpurred on by an open Facebook post during one of John Olson’s (Wolf Eyes) visits to Upstate New York, this album features him with two local luminaries, Eric Hardiman (Rambutan, Century Plants) and Jeff Case (Burnt Hills) in a purely improvised setting.  These three lengthy performances are surprisingly restrained, with Olson exclusively on reeds and wind instruments, Case on drums and Hardiman on saxophone and synths.  I am guessing the result is an excellent example of psycho jazz (still not knowing exactly what that means as a genre), though it is surprisingly more conventional than I had expected.
