Some listeners are easy to catch on famous names. Write ‘Metalica’ and they’ll read the article. The situation is similar to that of mushroom-pickers. Some of those pick only mushrooms they know well. There is nothing wrong with that, even I like picking tasty mushrooms which are familiar to me. Nevertheless, there is one more group of listeners, and it’s not that small. There are people, who likes discovering deep forests, mapping unmapped places in the dim light. Those people come out of the forest, carrying unseen mushrooms, for the feeling of satisfaction when you say: ‘I know this one. It’s a tasty little beast…’ or ‘I know this band. I’ve known even before they became famous!’ worth it.
Czech and Finnish people have something in common. They are a passionate mushroom-pickers… and they love good music. I belong to that small group of seekers. And this time, I wandered in Finnish woods. Would you like to be among those, who fully enjoy the pleasure of finding something new? Excellent. Then I recommend ‘Alase’. No, it’s not a well-known band. No, it hasn’t got a full-length album so far. However, they are good. Very good if I may say so. Watching their work progress is a pure joy. And even more joyful will be the moment of saying: ‘Oh, you mean Alase? Sure, I’ve known them for a long time. How comes you haven’t?
