Vähän multaa päälle (trans. "Put a Little Dirt On Top") is a compilation on vinyl featuring exclusive tracks from bands that reside in Tampere, Finland. It was commissioned by the art exhibition Tampere 5th Triennial as a part of their exhibition catalog. Fonal only has 250 copies for sale, so it will definitely be a sought-out collector's item! The amazingly detailed LP covers are done by a fine artist from Tampere, Seela Dahlman. The LP features five artists. Motelli Skronkle is a legendary band that released three albums in the '90s and was founded by theater actors Hannu Raatikainen, Esko Varonen and the late Markku Peltola, who also acted in the Aki Kaurismäki movie The Man Without The Past. Veli-Petteri Rajanti had joined the band already before the first release in 1987. On this compilation, we hear the first new material from the band in over 10 years. Pekko Käppi is a well-known neo-folk artist in Finland and released his latest album Vuonna 86 in 2010. Ville Leinonen has released a multitude of albums, and three are on the Fonal Records catalog. On this compilation, we hear a more ambient and experimental track. Death Hawks is a bluesy, noisy rock group that put out their debut album in Finland. They've gone the way of Sun City Girls on this compilation with a three-part psychedelic trip. Tuusanuuskat, who released their debut album in 2011 on Fonal has made their most danceable track to date, a 9-minute dancefloor tune with experimental flavors added.
