"Keijo hails from Jyväskylä, Finland -- a small town in the north that claims to be the center of the universe. In the sprawling Finnish underground, Keijo is the wise sage who everyone admires. He has worked and collaborated with Finnish acts such as Vapaa, Avarus, and Kheta Hotem, while seeing CD-r releases on the ultra-hip pseudo Arcana and Lal lal lal labels. While using all acoustic sources, For a While is flat out weird. Essentially the structure utilized here is folk, but somewhere way beyond the analogy of Tim Buckley's Lorca dream-structure being used to break down reality subconsciously. It isn't even easy to listen to. Unsettling minimalist guitar riffs drift under sheets of detuned/stretched-out bell samples. No, this isn't the sort of weirdness that grabs you by the collar and shakes you around a bit. This is another, more insidious weirdness that isn't apparent right away, but rather you wake up one morning and realize you weren't the person you were before."
