DL Code for 'Turns'
'Turns' is an album wrought with vertical forms, heavily cinematic in design and scope. It’s an album built from the earth. With eyes closed, one can easily imagine heavy rusted spires rising and collapsing upon themselves, only to be rebuilt from the rubble in the same instant, ever clawing towards the sky, with the rumblings of massive tectonic plates shifting below. That said, 'Turns' is far more of a cerebral experience than its predecessors. transitioning seamlessly between hypnotic long-form pieces, minimal harp-like ballads and the primal stomping world-builders that have become Seabuckthorn’s calling card.
Deluxe version comes in an edition of 100 copies. Each of these is comprised of a hinged, modified/collaged/printed 5″ reel to reel tape box. The cut out lid is collaged with pages from a 100 year old book on Lepidoptera, with the cut out forming a sort of an ancient and tattered specimen box, and revealing a two sided, quadra folded 5″ x 19″ print. Printed on Moab rag natural 300# paper, one side is printed from a detailed 3 dimensional scan, and the other is stamped with butterflies, each hand colored with leaves and flowers. In the box and beneath the print, comes the factory pressed disc in picture sleeve, and a hand numbered textual insert, all on a bed of mounting material…
Funky packaging design with this one: Includes screen printed belly bands wrapped around thick green gatefold card that has an inner card which CD rests inside… Love it!
Most of us are living in an urban world, dominated by constant noise and contagious stress. Our ears are conditioned by this aggressive environment and have often lost the ability to perceive another discreet world surrounding us. It might be hidden but also swarming, vivid and incredibly musical. We are all able to prick up our ears to some birds chattering together, the wind shaking leaves, toads singing serenades or old spirits telling us their immemorial adventures…
Since its creation in 2006, Jüppala Kääpiö has tried to substantiate what they were hearing and feeling from animals, plants or even minerals that they met in their living places in different countries and during travels in different continents.
“Animalia Corolla” is a record of feasts of spirits gathered from the whole world. Their songs, dances and conversations about the synchronicity of their dreams have been transcribed in this album.
Jüppala Kääpiö is a Swiss and a Japanese duo. They settled in Brussels in Belgium in summer 2011 after staying in Switzerland , Canada, Mongolia and Japan.
The life in multicultural/lingual situations naturally gave to their music a style which might be called cosmopolitan folklore music.

Through the hypnotic fog that is the music of Cock and Swan lurks a strange energy, feeling one part sinister and two parts innocent. Yet, it reveals itself in subtle uneasy layers of blissfully haunting melodies as you clamber further into the dank outlands that entrench their sound.
