APL007 >> Taavi Tulev - Televiisor On Tuksis
       13 tracks :: 58min 10sec :: 83.76 MB

One of todays most important composers of 
classical music is Toivo Tulev, the father of 
Taavi. For Autoplate, Taavi cuts, smashes, 
mingles, constructs and keeps defining the new 
school of electronica folklore from Estonia. 
13 neo-dsp songs which are mad and randomly 
structured, but in the end agree on one point: 
beautiful.

Taavi keeps playing various instruments of 
undefined origin and, if you listen carefully, 
unfolds multiinstrumentality i rarely took notice 
of yet. "Karje" pierces your ears with an enraged 
spoon on the heating and loud distorted pads which 
top on jamming a dramatic melody together. "Freako" 
is a metallic jam of used and unusal sounds. "Amuu" 
sounds like a defacement of a traditional estonian 
good-night song with illogcial harmonies. "Kaega" 
has melancholic-melody painting skills equal to 
some Lackluster songs of the "Container" album, but 
with more youthful energy behind and not too 
reduced. "Mleellikulal" grain manipulates hipassed 
guitarlick cycles and plugs/unplugs popping wires. 
One of my favourite cuts, "Kivi" jams on a heavy 
fx-ed piano with all the dadaistic, impudently, 
sounds Taavi loves to cutnpaste. "Minuni" evolves 
C-64 resonanced strings and pads and lfo-s, cutoffs 
and delays them to a nice potpourri of retroanalogica. 

On "R-Pauer" Taavi throws again bittersweet and 
tender melancholica around himself like lightnings 
which break your heart into thousand parts. "Berta" 
is hectic and tries to escape from the unknown. In 
all between those songs, we have a break with Dr. 
Jekyll, the liquid fountain of youth, "Televiisor On 
Tuksis" which keeps sparkling like glowworms. So nice! 
And a really impressive example of Taavis solid 
classical background of composing. Beware of Mr. 
Hyde in "Trainas"! "Taschkje" is a warm bath of 
electronica, before he leaves us with yet another 
estonian christmas interpretation, called "Alap" here. 

Very recommended - see Taavi on Germany tour in 
December, definately one of the most bizarre Gigs 
you'll have heared so far then, yet.
