We've been happy to feature the recordings of Finnish band Black Lizard on several occasions (features for Solarize, and self-titled debut), as we are fans of their brand of psychedelic shoegaze. But today's post is to introduce the solo work of one of Black Lizard's members, Paltsa-Kai Salama. As is the case with Black Lizard, Salama is signed to Helsinki label Soliti Music. His first single is "Ran Out Of Love", and it reveals a very different approach than Black Lizard. A sunny, upbeat acoustic tune with a '70s country-influenced approach that may remind the listener of The Grateful Dead, it has been one of my most pleasant discoveries of the week. And it is available as a free download. Life is good!
And for those of you who are hungry, here is a link to a video of Salama demonstrating how to cook a vegan "ham" with "Ran Out Of Love" as the soundtrack. Of course, you could cook the dish without the song, but why would you want to do that?
