If you live in Brooklyn and haven't gone to see QUEENING yet, I strongly suggest that you do so. These are two videos taken at a show at Paul Shaffer's House in the Bronx, 12/10/10. Queening have also put out a tape that you should def pick up. I listen to it all the time. You can purchase it from Permanent Records of Chicago.

If you had to choose only one compact disc to bring and listen to in your car, this should be it. An emotion for every driving situation. While a little shakier than her masterpiece, NOW (which I think came out the same year, 1973) it contains vital psychedelic materials not featured on said masterpiece. The glorious ballad, 추억 & the hard rockin' 어디서 어디까지 alone make this worth a (repeat repeat repeat) listen.
Feel the Wind
purchase (from Chicago's excellent Dusty Groove)

Flanged drum machine bounces while basslines wrap around a sweet voice in the room sound turned aqua tape. A solo is taken by a ponging keyboard evolving into a chime box clanging. Melodies abound, and even tho I don't speak finnish, I find myself singing along. Apparently recorded live, out on Thurston'z Ecstatic Peace! Islaja's website says of it, "Blaze Mountain Recordings is a live document, all music and words by Merja and played by Merja and Jukka. It’s the perfect portal to enter the living world of ISLAJA’s music/art spirit with a unity of traditional Finnish forest mystery and a radical song universe."
