Estonia is a small Northeastern Europe county with a bustling music scene. One of the three Baltic states, it is smaller than New Hampshire and Vermont combined, with a population of just over a million. Modern classical music is without a doubt one of the country’s calling cards, with classical composers like Arvo Part, Erkki-Sven Tuur, and Veljo Tormis. But all music genres are a part of Estonian music culture.
The annual Tallinn Music Week showcases the country’s top Pop talents, held every spring since 2009; it is largely regarded as one of the top five winter festivals to visit in Europe. One of the country’s top Pop bands is Tehnoloogiline Paike, a Pop/Electronic band formed in 2004 by Evar Anvelt. ‘Technological Sun,’ a direct translation of their name, is their third album featuring seven brand new tracks from this award-winning group. The album follows their 2011 self-released album ‘Koige Pikem Paev.’
‘Technological Sun’ starts off with an instrumental track titled ‘This Means War,’ gearing up the listener for the energetic and spacey ‘Breaking It.’ ‘Breaking It’ is by far the best track on the album, although ‘If I Just Die,’ with its contrast between breathy female and hardened male vocals, is also a great track on its own. The group has put together a well-rounded LP that will keep you intrigued from beginning to end. Consider yourself scooped! Right here at www.wedoitfortheloveofmusic.com!
