Frontier-annihilating Finn (and part-time tram driver) Jaakko Eino Kalevi strides boldly into our ears on Dreamzone, his debut for Weird World, continuing the noises we've heard on efforts like Töölö Labyrinth and Chamber of Love. Melting dub, jazz, electropop, new wave and shoegaze into a creamy fondue, Kalevi proves he's not one to follow a dotted line or let his vision - no matter how 'out-there' - go awry in the face of conventions or boundaries.

Drawing influences from "Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Chris Rea, Jimi Tenor, Ariel Pink and Connan Mockasin," Kalevi whisks us through an immersive sonic environment - in only four tracks we glimpse a broad variety of styles, ranging from bossanova to Arcade Fire-style indie (and many more). It's designed to be a teaser for his next full-length, due some time next Spring - and it does a noble job, enticing us in with avant-garde experiments and juicy pop slivers; it's just as curve-ball as it is familiar, ensuring we've got something to grasp onto and we don't just float about in an endless sea of confusion.

'No End' with a rolling, walking bassline, pinches bits from the fuzzier arenas of pop. Beneath misty-eyed, reverb-laced vocals, there's a glorious rhythm section conjuring utter magic, but as soon as that clarion sax saunters into the squall, and briskly gives way to auto-tuned dialtone, you'll have entered a completely different, fantastical universe. 'Uu uu uu' has jazzy funk guitars and castanets clacking - not exactly a staple of pop, or indeed music of the last thirty years - that weave together to incite memories of summers long faded. It's at times reminiscent of surf-pop, but also of some aging lounge act. Imagine if The Drums had been Vegas residents in the '60s.

By the time Dreamzone is done and dusted, you'll have an itchy trigger finger poised over the repeat button - Kalevi's fulfilled his mission in making sure we want to hear more. It's entirely incoherent and identity-less, but that's an inherent part of the charm - Kalevi's tangents and digressions are key to his appeal. If he stringently stuck to one theme or idea, we'd be bored to tears; fortunately that's not the case.
