Our latest Weekly playlist manages to entice different feelings from our curators. Either making them rock, do the house chores, soundtrack ice hockey play-offs, feel better through sadness and sing their tax returns – this weeks musical offerings are motivational.
Rap is big even here in the Upper Peninsula Michigan. Kendrick Lamar just knows how to bring something new to the table every time. Kalle Räsänen
My favorite metal band just released their new album and it rocks. Kalle Räsänen
I still listen to Lonely Drifter Karen although my own drifting days are kind of over. Varpu Eronen
With this song I can get almost anything done in the house. Varpu Eronen

The Rolling Blackouts CF have made an EP which just simply refuses to leave my turntable & playlists. Something about this music embodies the sheer creative power of a band which has clearly found their sound and polished it to perfection. Deceivingly simple yet also multilayered and deep contemporary indie rock. Irresistible. PS. Be sure to also check out the great OQ feature by Nick. Matti Nives
A surprise find, and another one on repeat at the moment. Also, the title feels apt as I’m deep into the Finnish ice hockey league playoffs, following each game and pre/post game of my hometown team who at the moment need to “shoot and score” way better. Matti Nives
I had trouble sleeping the other night so I put on my headphones and retreated back to my ambient archives in hopes of finding something so soothing I would just wake up in the morning still wearing my headphones and well rested. I popped in the album Copia by Eluvium, and actually didn’t fall asleep at all but enjoyed the nocturnal moment much more upon realizing the remarkable pastoral power of the opening track “Amreik” in particular.

John Moreland usually makes me cry. Now he makes me smile. Something weird is going on, he’s not supposed to be happy! Aki Lehti
Sad songs make me feel better. Aki Lehti
I’ll start off with this lovely number. Karstein Volle
Something a bit sweeter too. How Fred Neil never became a superstar is a mystery to me. With that voice, he could have sung his tax returns and I would have gladly bought it. Karstein Volle
