The first full-length by the Finnish duo Kiila. This album has been in the making for two years and now it's finally out. Packed in a beautiful 6-page digipack designed by Jan Anderzen it contains nine tracks and total of 39 minutes of music.
Kiila makes music with everything thats around, a massive array of instruments have been used here, clockwork, bowed saw, bowed guitars and bassguitars, drums, percussions, computers… You name it.
The album is full of heart and has received many warm words from all over the world.
“Heartcore has preserved a lot of sustained work and spontaneous expression. We have spent time and energy on listening to music, talking and thinking about it. We have listened to these songs as to our favourite records: critically, carefully and with devotion, often and for long periods of time, in many situations and states of mind. The main difference between these processes – listening to our favorite records and listening to Heartcore – has been that we have changed the sounds on Heartcore whenever necessary. We have omitted sounds, played new ones or modified existing ones. We have thought about arrangements, searched for sounds and altered structures. The whole time, however, making music has been subordinate to listening to it.”
