I only just discovered Alynda Segarra AKA Hurray For The Riff Raff and I am in love. This song is from her fresh new album The Navigator – a concept album about gentrification. Astrid Swan
This song is my favorite song in 2017 so far by a mile. Astrid Swan

I’m looking forward to their gig this week. Maarit Laitinen

This resonates with me in happiness and sorrow. Emmi Kujanpää
Such lively and emotional clarinet playing in this Albanian song. Emmi Kujanpää
Ty Segall is just amazing. Heidi Soikkeli
I loved the 2012 album Young & Old, after that I kind of forgot the band. This new single makes me dream of summer. Heidi Soikkeli
James Blake is always great. On top of that this video is such a beauty. Heidi Soikkeli
Five years ago Jason Isbell was in the gutter with a free falling career. Two excellent post-rehab album later turned things around and now Isbell is one of the most respected Americana artist. This is the advance from his new rocking and rolling album, out in June. Eduardo Alonso
One of my favourite rock albums this year so far. Witty lyrics and cowpunk lick. Eduardo Alonso

Talking about modern music, I wasn’t very impressed by Drake‘s More Life. Wherein that self-described “playlist” felt predictable and kind of boring, Future’s 2017 started with two great Billboard-topping albums, full of creative elements and unique beauty. This cut is from the soothing, mellow HNDRXX -album. Petri Poutiainen
Migos is also one of the finest examples of how wonderfull music in 2017 is. Such inventiveness, history in the making. Petri Poutiainen
This song goes great with the spring. Love the hooks, the sound, the vocals. There are so much great acts in the finnish music scene right now, and Ghost World surely is one of the finest. Petri Poutiainen
About a month ago I realized I was way too out of shape and started going to the gym, mostly running. Looking for new music to run to, I came across this record. Running or not – it kicks ass. Paltsa-Kai Salama
