The almost mythical Finnish label Fonal, home of Islaja, Paavoharju and Kemialliset Ystävät, has just announced the signing of their first non-Finnish band. We're talking about Pretty Lightning, a German duo formed by Christian Berghoff and Sebastian Haas, who started out in 2007. , Their first proper album “There Are Witches In The Woods” will be released on 28th March. (It follows a CD-R released in 2008 and only available at their gigs that year.) According to the label, the duo's sound fits the house style, moving between the psychedelic blues of people like Wooden Shjips or Moon Duo, the freak-folk of Sunburned Hand Of The Man, the primitive sounds of International Harvester and the Kraut-rock of Amon Duul II. You can listen to excerpts of the album, “The Sound Of Thunder”, below these lines.
