Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers album "You Are Here" is out!

Hi everybody! Below you'll find some basic info on the record and a few links to videos, Spotify and the record label's shop. Check it out. Hope you like it. Enjoy!

Janne

”You Are Here” is the debut album of Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers and Sisters. Janne Haavisto, the drummer of the late Laika & The Cosmonauts (that called it quits in 2008) makes a comeback to the surf sound with over 20 friends ranging from Los Straitjackets' Pete Curry to childhood friend Sami Yaffa of Hanoi Rocks and New York Dolls. The record is an exciting combination of soul, reggae, latin, exotica and world music influences, blended in cinemascopic soundscapes. Rhythmically versatile, it flows naturally through dreamy slow moods to more hectic moments.

On the album you'll hear Haavisto play guitars, drums, percussion, organ, mellotron, vibraphone, marxophone...

Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers is also a live band:

Janne Haavisto, drums
Abdissa ”Mamba” Assefa, percussion
Miikka Paatelainen, guitar
Jussi Jaakonaho, guitar
Jukka Kiviniemi, bass

  • ALBUM UPDATE *

Here it is people, the new album artwork and track listing for our upcoming album, Benthic Exploration! Tracking begins in a few weeks and should have this out to the world by late July! This is going to be a 6 track release, with a possible seventh tune (if we feel it is ready).

Replicating the ocean we love so much, this will take you from the serene to the chaotic. An aural smorgasbord if you will.

Tracks:

1) Intro
2) Deep Water Blackout
3) Conduit
4) Hydrothermal Vent
5) Hot Mix
6) Outro

and possibly a cover of a very famous song Smile

Keep your eyes peeled as we document the process, always fun, but always intense. We are excited to get this new release out to all of you. Thank you for the support and encouragement. Back to the grindstone!

Mil gracias.

Monday, Monday,

The Nor Cal misfits, better known as The Me Gustas, are venturing beneath the sea for inspiration for their next release!
