Today's 12 O'Clock Track is "Painovoimaa, Valoa" from Nukkuu. I spun the album repeatedly this past weekend because it goes perfectly with an all-windows-open, breezy-apartment atmosphere. Lau Nau's soothing, breathy vocals float over sometimes fractured guitar and fiddle while touches of ambient noise creep into the song from every angle. It's a sirenlike track, as alluring as it is supernatural, and a great fit for warm weather and a blanket on the grass.
According to her website, Lau Nau began recording a new album in spring 2011, but I haven't been able to find any info about a release date.
