The I'm Single label releases the eponymous debut CD from Berlin-based Khan of Finland. Centered around the figure of mega-producer Can "Khan" Oral (aka Captain Comatose), Khan Of Finland are a trio in the traditional sense of the word who make a sound that is anything but. Using just vocals, piano and a human beat-box, they play all-acoustic electronic blues, but also switch roles and improvise. The piano becomes a percussive instrument. The beat(box) melodic. The vocal full-blooded. From the blues to a howl. The sound veering from metal-heavy riffs to dubbed-out cabaret. These 9 songs were all recorded live at a defunct gas station in Berlin-Wedding with a few additional over-dubs recorded at various other spectacular locations such as St. Clara Church in Berlin-Neukoelln. Weirdly swank, electro-tinged, and decidedly energetic odes to loving life.
