Mr Jones Machine - New Wave
New Romantics, Synthpop The two brothers Jouni and Jarmo Ollila have together with Magnus Lindström created a very interesting album. It's a mixture of new and old, sounds that reminds you of artists that had their best days in the 80's like Lustans Lakejer and Gary Numan, but also more modern chimes. The connection you often to do for an example Pouppe Fabrikk and Daily Planet are long gone.

The first time I heard the record I got real glad, even though I didn't enjoy all tracks. Later on when I visited a club a familiar song sounded from the speakers and I was able to sing along with the lyrics, first then I understood that the record had been familiarized that I thought. After that I have listened to "New wave" a numerous of times and I get more and more pleased with it.

Jarmo's voice is a real killer, the choirs I first smiled at now sounds really great! Tracks to mention are "Jaguar", "My time" and "A place in the sun", which are the first three tracks. I really think you should buy this record and listen really carefully to the lyrics of "I'm your enemy" - so superbly true! And with the smashing base it just has to be my favourite track on this album!
