Eknoh – Moi! Kuukauden Valaat (2015)




  • Plinkerpop 
  • Art pop 
  • Electronic music 
  • Post-IDM 
  • Indietronica
  • Alternative pop

Comment: Eknoh is Hal Honke, and vice versa, whose 5-track issue is a part of the discography of the Japanese imprint Ceramicrecords. Because of having had no contact with the artist before listening to this issue I thought firstly it is an album by a Finn due to the Finnish title (Hi! Monthly Whales). I also thought of it as an issue coming out from the 00s under such labels either as Petite & Jolie, Error! Lo-Fi Recordings, 23 Seconds, Aerotone, or No-Source. However, it is a decent alternative, electronic pop issue with acidic grooves, brisk changes between the chords, some catchy melodies and lead motives, and sprawling yet exquisite orchestrations. I would like to call it an example of post-IDM (or IDM pop).

Comment: by the middle of October of 2018 there is a sufficient time span left behind to consider the most important, seminal musicians during the last decades. By my opinion the importance of Ariel Pink is impossible to overestimate. As one Estonian musician and DJ said about it when he first heard him that God started creating music. I can only agree with him. By listening to his first albums from the end of the 90s to the middle of the 00s it is something extraterrestrial even today for my ears. Many projects got inspired by him and Sean Bowie`s T.E.A.M.S is an amazing churning issue being obviously inspired by Ariel Pink. All those glitterball and stroboscope reflected synths used to bump up in syncopated way as if a faint remembrance from one`s subconscious mind regarding personal pop experience. One would wake up either being horrified and coated with frowsty sweat and exhausted with tremors or being elevated to heaven via gentle surreal and hyperrealistic sounds. From serene disco reverberations and cloudless artificial ambiances to ragged noise pop explosions and frantic drumming and bold yet artsy guitar lines as if an unstoppable liner at the sea. A true gem from the 10s, much better than Ariel Pink`s last issues (unfortunately).
