O’s Notes: Guitarist Kalle Kalima leads K18, a band featuring Mikko Innanen (reeds, whistles and effects), Veil Kujala (accordion) and Teppo Hauta-aho (b, perc). The CD opens with “The Phantom of Liberty” which enticed my dog to rush into the studio with a ‘what the f}+’ look on his face. I think he was looking for an elephant. Buñuel De Jour is a set of songs based on movies directed by Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel Portolés. A peak at some of these films features music used as a counterpoint in support of surreal themes. Hence the wild, wield sound effects, squawking and the like. This eclectic set is all original and requires a lot of imagination/enhancement to embrace.
