Satellite Stories! FINLAND!

 I sent Satellite Stories an interview request last March. that's a lifetime ago! but according to some logic, March and October are KIND OF the same.

so then I was drinking and thinking to myself, when I saw them on my Facebook newsfeed, that I should be like HEY YOU NEVER RESPONDED and see what happened! other bands that have ignored such requests:

- Lykke Li (not a band)
- Mila Kunis (not a band)
- Passion Pit (a band) 

well, they were nice enough to send me back answers, so thanks, you sweet Finnish boys! 





and here is what these Finns on the rise- think fast, Two Door Cinema Club like indie rock- had to say to me. please note some of these questions are outdated! OOPS! 

you have on your myspace that you were the most blogged about Finnish band in 2010. so I'm taking it 2010 was a very big year for you?
Satellite Stories:  2010 seemed like a big year, but 2011 was way huger than 2010. We played at major Finnish summer festivals and toured Germany and Switzerland. Next year will be of course even huger than 2011, when we release our new EP in spring. I just wish I could leak all the songs to Internet :D Everyone's going to like them for sure. (!!!)

you're getting really popular on hype machine I've noticed (which is how I was introduced to you!)- were you aware of that? (I'm sure you were, but sometimes!)

Satellite Stories:  Yeah, we're aware of the Hype Machine popularity. But popularity at the Internet comes and goes. Playing gigs makes a band more popular than just releasing songs at the Internet, that's why we try to play lots of gigs.
what are some exciting things you have coming up? (recording more tracks, playing more shows in Finland, etc?)
Satellite Stories:  I actually answered this to in question 1. But I forgot to tell that we are releasing a new single at the start of December. It's our darkest song yet. And it is very danceable and energetic.


how did you all start making music?
Satellite Stories:  Esa and Jyri used to hang around and Esa met Olli-Pekka at university of Oulu. Marko joined year later when old guitarist Taneli moved away to study rocket science. It was all really natural. 

yeah I mentioned myspace DO SOMETHING

thanks boys! best of luck to you!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
