Featurette: LAU NAU

Having just released her sophomore album Nukku, I just discovered the Finnish band Lau Nau over at Antville. Their music is wistful, spare, psychedelic folk; perfect listening while sitting on the lunar-like landscape at bottom of the ocean.

From Locust Music:
Lau Nau is the nom de plume of free spirited Finnish artist Laura Naukkarinen. Since the release of her celebrated debut full length Kuutarha on Chicago’s Locust Music in 2005, Lau Nau has enjoyed considerable recognition for her intimate & playful blend of ethnic tinged folk songs with curious & intuitive sounds conjured from familiar and exotic sound sources.
Here is a selection of Lau Nau's videos:

Lau Nau will be performing at the Clandestino festival, Göteborg, Sweden on June 14, 2008 at Koloni Klub.
