Acclaimed Finnish experimental label Sahko tends to be rather matter-or-fact about its releases, shying away from hype in order to let the music do the talking. They seem to be taking that approach to the extreme on "Sahko 30", an album of ghostly, slowly evolving ambience that arrives with no artist, title or track credits. The two long, lingering tracks evoke mental images of icy, windswept isolation with just the sound of creaking glaciers and a crackling shortwave radio for company. It's evocative, enjoyable stuff - once you navigate an extended opening blast of radio static that kicks off the A-side - and is apparently the work of "an experimental artist who wishes to stay anonymous". We may never know their identity, but it's safe to say the music on "Sahko 30" should last the test of time.
