Playlist: Husky Rescue
By CMU Editorial | Published on Thursday 6 December 2012
Originally formed a decade ago by Marko Nyberg, Finnish indie electronic outfit Husky Rescue underwent a major reorganisation after they completed touring last album, ‘Ship Of Light’. Stripping right back from a sextet to a trio, Nyberg is now joined by new members, vocalist Johanna Kalén and computer whizz Anthony Bentley.
The first release from the new line-up comes in the form of the ‘Deep Forest Green’ EP, due out via El Camino on 17 Dec, preparing the ground for a new album early next year. Ahead of that, we asked the group to put together a playlist for us. After putting their heads together, they came up with the ten tracks you see below, telling us: “When the winter comes one slows down to rest, but one also needs energy to get you through the dark days. Here are a few lullabies and hits for our winter soundtrack”.

01 Tiiu Helinä – Muuri
Label mates on our very own El Camino Records and the best thing hailing from Finland this year!
02 Nosaj Thing – Fog
That LA sound! Hypnotic and exiting.
03 Robert Hood – Motor City
On this concept album about the decline of Detroit, Robert Hood keeps it minimal and sharp. Pure genius!
04 El Perro Del Mar – Love In Vain
It has that dub reggae vibe to it. A real laid back track for lazy days.
05 Ken Boothe – Everything I Own
A warm groove from the sunny island. When you listen to this, everything is alright again.
06 Matias Aguayo – Rollerskate
Start a party at the office, play this at full blast! Hard to resist.
07 Ela Orleans – Rocket Trip To Nowhere
Tape hiss psychedelia and movies for ears. Polish born Ela Orleans takes you places.
08 Eric Showboy Akaeze And The Royal Ericos – We Dey Find Money
When it’s -15ºC outside, we need to dance ourselves warm and clean.
09 SBTRKT – Heatwave
Let it burn.
10 College & Electric Youth – A Real Hero
A real, fantastic song from the soundtrack of an amazing film.
