The album is something of an anthology of patterns, rather than a linear narrative with each track of the eight on 40950 being of different source to one another. The range of concepts include ambient electronica, clunky-rock, synthesised-folk and many more.
Whilst all disparate in style, settling back for the roughly forty seven minutes journey is perhaps the best way to absorb the release as inside the themes there is a realism of the vagaries and diversities of life which the LP is able to distillate.
The penultimate song, 69600, with its dreamy Seine reflective being my pick of the release.
The Finnish electro-rock project Forwardman has revealed the latest track from the forthcoming LP New Tomorrow.

When Did The King Need A Reason To Sing is a track that ponders the fractured social cohesion around much of the world in which the morally questionable has become the aspirational normality for far too many.
The Finnish trippy-garage trio The Botherers are planning to release the LP Urban Schizophrenia later in the year.
Released on the 23rd was the AA side single Side In: Message / Side Out: Bad Cops II (available on bandcamp) containing two songs from the album and signposts of an album which will be full of twists and turns that will warm up the latter part of the year.
I find it hard to believe that is the best part of three years since the iconic Finnish experimental outfit Can Can Heads last featured.
Can Can Heads
In their inimitable style unless you can find the cached file of Monorural Recordings, their eleven track album which came out earlier in the month – as I type – it has already gone – though it may well be that it will surface again soonish – and judging by where it was originally, albeit briefly, available – I think keeping an eye out on their bandcamp account may prove helpful.
Making a welcome return nonetheless – the fourth song – Mies tulee mies menee – I have however been able to trace.
