The initial gentle slide guitar invokes memories of Pink Floyd's "A Pillow of Winds" from their classic album Meddle, but as the gentle, wispy vocals of Reeta Korhola make their entrance, so end the comparisons between Floyd's sorely overlooked ballad and Country Falls' opener, "Sweet Little Kitten." With a slew of EPs and singles released in 2004 on Catskills, Helsinki-based Husky Rescue quietly established their little place on the mantle next to Air, Stereolab, and Architecture in Helsinki (the latter band Finnish in name only). However, unlike the aforementioned bands, the group places an emphasis on the laid-back elements of country & western motifs in place of vibrant analog synths and chic, stylish lyrics. While the results are not groundbreaking, Husky Rescue have crafted a slow, lazy record that is ideal for background listening and relaxing from start to finish.
