Can you feel it? Spring-time is comming! May is just around the corner, the temperature is getting better, the sun lurks around on the sky, and guess what? loopus in fabula is out with a new album. I know I'm excited about it. No time to chat, let's listen to the tracks...

01: Doofy Duck (Feat. Ritchie Mantrix)
Funky guitar-play and some weird voice-noise kicks off the album and after a few seconds we head into strange fabula-land. Quirky analog leads fuses with the rather unusual (for this kind of music) guitar-sounds. Some acidc-lines emerges here and there, and I'm sold. The quirkey sample-work is marvelous and I know I'll be listening alot to this track... nice opening!

02: Controversy
A robotic bassdrum is followed by an ultra-funky guitarlead causing heavy rotation in my oh-so-seldom-used disco-swinging hips. Have no fear though, this is far from being a greasy 70's BeeGees ripoff. This is probably the funkyest psychedelia your ears will feast on this year, and my darn it, how it pleases me....Great!

03: Dreamschwartz [Rmx for Visnudata]
This is a remix of a track made by Visnudata...I'm not previously familiar with this name, so I can't really comment on the original track here. This piece opens witth a star-wars sample...(AARGH!) Heard it before? Sure! Should it be here? No! That being said, the track is totally insane! The bass moves around frenetically while the overall mood of the track shifts from totally laidback to über-trippy tribal crazyness. I love both the atmospheric floating parts here and the playfullness involved.

04: YSD
'YSD' opens deep, dark and rather minimal... It progresses nice and slowly - builds steadilly adding new elements throughout. There are also a few break-beat sessions involved here, and I think they work out really well. After a while also this track gets dressed in that rather weird loopus-suite that I love so much. Great!

05: Fat Old Ladies (Feat. Paul Kearney)
This is a weird little thing. It's got alot of the same elements that the rest of the tracks here do, but I don't think they work out as well here. It sounds more 'random' and less well constructed than some of the brilliant moments on the disc. Its basically a beat, a bassline and on top of this a ton of samples, twists and turns. For me this is no favourite here..

06: Funky Express
Allright everybody - stand back! After a rather dissapointing track we head back to funky-town. This is sheer and pure dance-music for body and mind. It's fun, it's twisted, it's funky, it's varied as hell and it follows no-ones formula. Again I love the way loopus varies their track with well-constructed breakbeat together with high-octane dancemusic. Oh, and the euphoria when that high-pitched trumpet(ish) sound kicks in? Marvelous!

07: Feel Again
Feel again opens with the glass-like twinkeling of some ambient soundscapes but soon shoots off to become an insisting, repetitive, hypnotic and highly danceable trance-tune. The bassline is simple and catchy, but there's alot of background-tweaking being done all the way, and it ceirtanly manages to stay fresh and interesting.

08: Rockit
Opening as a trafficjam of proportions this soon turns in to an acid-line frenzy. It's a solid track, but I find the 4/4 sections of this one to be a bit bellow album-average. The big-beat -ish workings on the slower side of things work darn well, though. Ok track, but no favourite..

09: Let's Dance
Ok I admit it. I'm a worshipper of David Bowies music. I've seen the man live several times, and own nearly all of his albums...Remixes of his work most often make me want to throw myself with full force towards the nearest speeding semi-trailer... This is basically a remix of his infamous 80's hit "let's dance". You might or might not know it and you might or might not like it, that is irrelevant. This piece of wonderfull remix-artistery works extremely well, and it's really har not to dance to this one. Some might find this too comercial, I guess - But who the fuck cares? Great way to finish the album!

Final Remarks:
So there you have it! I'm extremely impressed by this release, and I know this is one of those albums I'll be listening to for a long time... One of 2006 absolute top-releases so far in my book! Even though parts of it is rather corky, my guess is this should have rather wide appeal, also outside your average psy-crowd. So basically....just get it!

hahaha I like the cover, I like the stuff in it, as I liked before ....
I had to learn not to go into it with too high expectations on it .... and each time I remind in this if I going to taste stuff I was waiting for, I am not dissappointed .... I try to evaluate the time has passed, see the development of production and or the sound creations ...
this is loopus ... nothing more to say ... marvelous funny funk asskicking futuristic listenable enjoyment in its creation ...
cheers man ...           I just came out, cause it seems there was a noise outside ! .... added to Parvati Records rooster .. check webside !!!

If you must compare, I much prefer Loopus. a lot of Haltya's music is a bit too wacky for my taste.

Brilliant cd, great music, funky, psy, jazzy, what more do we need? I just can't stop playing it for a few days now...
The coverart also suits the music imo, I really loved it.
Favorites: 1(!!), 4, 5, 7, 9(!!)
Finally some quality music! way to go loopus

Now to the comparison with haltya- nothing to compare, this last loopus cd might sound a bit like haltya style but only in a very few parts of some tracks (mostly track 4). haltya style is much more full-power and more psy and is more similar to the other finland music out there then to loopus style. But forest flavour is an amazing cd indeed

What a refreshing album, in the middle of all the stereotypical releases ww have nowadays.

Brilliant stuff! Very funky, funny, jazzy, groovy, bouncy, among other things that end with a Y. Oh, and also very cool.
