V/A - Our Favorite Things: Nuspirit Helsinki (Backdrop)


Scandinavian jazzer and head of Nuspirit, Tuomas Kallio has selected his Favorite Things for this compilation on Backdrop, a spin off imprint from ObliqSound. Kallio brings us a very ‘musical’ selection of cuts, whose finest moments come in the form of some trembling emotion drenched instrumentals. As expected there are some very jazzy moments and Nordic acts feature heavily, but this compilation takes in more varied soundscapes than those on show in Nuspirit’s own work. Cuts of notes include Joakim’s arresting Peter Pan Over The Bronx, Trentemøller’s teary eyed Miss You and the sonorous Natoppet from Detektivbyrån. Cool jazzy fun from the north!
