Artist: AVARUS
Title: Salon des Amateurs
Format: LP
Label: Pome Pome
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Your favorite free experimental rock jazz folk electronic noise combo from Finland made up of folks from ANAKSIMANDROS, PYLON, KILLA, MUNUAISSYMPOSIUM 1960, KEMIALLSET YSTAVAT, MANIAC’S DREAM, MUSLUX, AMON DUDE, PURPLE POOMEN, LOONEY BIN BOUNCERS, ISLAJA and more. The borders between the bands are quite loose. There are about 10 core members in AVARUS in three different cities, and the number of occasional members is 10-20, now in a smattering of different countries. But it’s not at all important to know who’s playing and when. It’s about a collective improvisational sound, a play or a game. "Avarus is one of the cornerstone groups of modern Finnish psychedelia, trailblazers for the recombinant aesthetic pioneered by a small gaggle of artists whose self-released, subterranean music is as baffling and crude as it is celebratory and hilarious."—The Wire. The band’s eleventh album released in an edition of 200 copies." -Pome Pome.

Title: IV
Format: LP
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"LP only - 160 gram virgin vinyl, pressed in Czech Republic, direct metal mastering, full-color labels and jackets, all-exclusive new jams limited to 200 copies. All-new exclusive Avarus! Fourth Secret Eye full-length and tenth release overall from this incredible Finnish band that pretty much defines modern psychedelic kraut improv. Primitive, primal and tribal, desolate and mournful, dreamy and pastoral, motorik and hypnotic. Buzzing, clattery, droning, stumbling Krautrock flecked with shimmering free-noise, avant ambience, delicate folk fuckery, and chaotic caveman psychedelic space rock. Avarus IV starts where the Rasvaaja LP ended. The IV, too, consists of Tomas Regans careful high-quality recordings. On the IV Avarus makes and even longer dive in the warm and clear pond, into which the water is poured from both kraut and space rock, and from micro music and slapstick. The recording was made after the US tour, which guarantees the firm harmony satisfying the most demanding listeners. The delicate talent and the hilarious team spirit guarantee a recordful of heart-warming harmonies and surprising turns delighting an unprejudiced mind. The wondrous adult rock of Avarus is born from an uncompromising love for music. The finished recording deserved a fantastic cover, too. This in mind, the graphic visionaries Amanda Vähämäki and Pauliina Mäkelä spent their summer holidays swimming, drinking beer, and drawing their kaleidoscopic Davy Crockett epos inspired by music." - Secret Eye.

Title: Jättiläisrotta
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"From the circle of psychos who bring you Kemialliset Ystävät and the Anaksimandros comes this release by the one and only Avarus. These Finns play a freaked out blend of noise, folk and, could it be... free jazz!???!??!!??! Packed with aural mayhem and musical non-sequiturs, this music will make you dance like Dr. Huxtable, no joke. Although they have released many tapes, 7", and CD-rs all over the world, this is Avarus FIRST CD! A split release with Finnish label, Lal lal lal." - Secret Eye.

Title: Vesikansi
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"49 minutes of gooey new goodness from Avarus - spread over just three tracks. In the last year, Finlands experimental underground has successfully overtaken the freak music world, and for damn good reasons. From the same tattered coven of piss drinkers who alternately refer to themselves (depending on who shows up to record) as Kemialliset Ystävät, Lau Nau, Pylon, Islaja, Es, Kiila or the Anaksimandros comes this, another Secret Eye release from the mighty Avarus - a follow-up to last years Jättiläisrotta. These fumbling Finns conjure a smoky, shit-drunk forest of noise, folk and unsurpassable tribal improv. Features guest vocals and casio from Tara Burke (AKA Fursaxa) recorded live in Ireland." - Secret Eye.

Title: Toosassa
Format: LP
Label: Ultra Eczema
Country: Belgium
Price: $29.00
"When you go to Finland, a country where 95 % of the population is inbred, chances are that you will meet at least 7 members of the Avarus family! You can smell them from a mile away, theyre the adults raising their kids on homebrew white spirit, continuously producing the kind of farts you cant hear though the stench is worse than the ones that sound like a brassband. Behind every Finnish tree there is a member of Avarus humping another Avarus member, and rarely a Kemialliset Ystavat member (the other 5% of Finns). The government of Finland is not proud of this sick family, they try to keep it silent, rarely give interviews to press from other countries and make sure planes hardly fly out. Though for some reason Arttu Partinen, Roope Eronen and Tero Niskanen made it as a trio in a small boat to the USA. The only instruments that made it were a few balloons and a crappy Casio. On arrival they found a microphone, a drum and more toys, climbed the WFMU building and played the craziest session ever! Like a bunch of children discovering the 50s Euro avant garde scene, the 60s psychedelic free jazz and pre-punk scene, the 70s sound poetry and punk scene and the 80s disco scene in one afternoon!! This LP sounds like a mix of all of that I guess. Limited to 300 copies, comes in a psychedelic duo coloured cover by Dennis Tyfus." - Ultra Eczema.
