We're celebrating the third birthday of Soliti with a free 8 track compilation of new material and rarities from most of our roster. Welcome to Soliti Turns Three: Congratulations & Commiserations. Congratulations as it's our birthday (and we're proud to have made it this far) and commiserations (we're getting older!)
We're double celebrating as Soliti welcomes our new signing Ghost of Jack Nance to the label. Starting the compilation you'll find the band's' first recording for the label, You Never Come Around Anymore.
Also featured are tracks from Black Lizard, Prince Of Assyria, Delay Trees, Gim Kordon, Astrid Swan, Black Twig & The New Tigers.
Congratulations and Commiserations also features a specially designed collage from Onni Nieminen, sticksman with Black Lizard and renowned artist.
A big thanks you to everyone who has supported Soliti over the last three years. Here's to us, you and the future!
1.Ghost Of Jack Nance: You Never Come Around Here No More
“Roses are red, violets are blue, I am schizophrenic and so am I”
2.Black Lizard: Suicide & Other Drugs
“This song was made for movie that our friend was making. Movie never came out but song is still here.”
3.Prince Of Assyria: At The Gates Of Central Bank
“This is an interpretation of Jacques Brel’s song, Amsterdam. It´s actually a combination of Jaques version and a later one made by, David Bowie. I tried to update the topic to something that felt more suitable for this time of age. So by changing it´s lyrics a bit, I feel that the song can pinpoint the same heartless society we are living in. Maybe by writing about it, I can make a change.”
4.Delay Trees: Perfect Heartache (demo)
“”Most of the demos of Readymade had the raw, sketch-like quality we tried to capture and maintain on the album. In our opinion this demo of Perfect Heartache captures that carefree vibe perfectly.”
5.Gim Kordon: Ei Ole Helppoo (acoustic)
“Acoustic version of Gim Kordon’s first single Ei ole helppoo from their TOP 20 debut Ei ole helppoo. Recorded in a closet.”
6.Astrid Swan: Four Months To Kill (early version)
“This is a very raw version of Four Months to Kill from the day it was born (if I remember correctly). I’m kind of in love with the melody here, because it has quirks that I straightened out later on and the tempo is lulling here, never hurried. Also, the lyrics in the chorus are different, maybe better than in the album version. Happy birthday Soliti! “
7.Black Twig: On White (Swans At Tea EP version)
“This is an early and a bit rougher version of On White. We recorded it for our first EP, which has been out of print for a long time. New version of the song can be found from our latest album “Heliogram”.
8.The New Tigers: World’s Greatest Actor (live)
“This wild, extended live version of World’s Greatest Actor (an oldie from the first album) was recorded live at the band’s home arena, Turku’s Dynamo, in may 2014.”
