4 stars "Sykli" has been launched in 2017 as the newest album by a Finnish Krautrock star SIINAI. Their first album "Olympic Games" features sticky repetitive simple phrases flooded with electronics and sound of depth (my love), and sounds like this "Sykli" might follow in the similar vein, slightly added with more electronic sound treatment. Just like the appearance of the album sleeve pic, we would feel ourselves getting absorbed into the centre of the hole, Siinai inner world. Interesting in both visual and auditory manners.

The third track "Ananda" or the last "Europe" sounds more of psychedelic rock drenched in deep, heavy guitar riffs based upon strict rhythmic vibes, but contrary to that, the beginning shot "Tempperi" and the following titled one "Sykli" are exactly close to pure electronic. As especially for the latter one, we can find similar movement to Manuel G'ttsching's "Inventions For Electric Guitar" plus more dramatic, dreamy synthesizer-oriented soundscape. Not complicated nor dissonant but mysteriously heartwarming, mind-opening. Please get immersed in the core of their sound theatre.
