To mark the beginning of the creative process that shall eventually lead to the completion of the next album, "Viitala", we are making available the short film/music video "Tuulikruunu". Musically, this is an introduction to the direction ASG is moving - from the darker shadows of the past into the bright living light that radiates from the forests of Finland.

6-panel digipack double-CD, 33 tracks, approx. 145min. 15€ + postages
Released on the name day of Joonatan, the massive retrospective compilation double-CD of Joonatan Elokuu's wandering psychedelic folk group Aura Shining Green sees the light of day and the bright moonlit night.
The first part "East of the Sun" carries the soft fragrance of flowers and the sunlit forests, reminding us perhaps of the works of B'ee (In Gowan Ring & Birch Book), Nick Drake and even early tunes of Leonard Cohen. Second part takes us through the mysterious moonlit nights filled with wonder & magic. Bearing the ever present strong psychedelic folk aura and possibly some hints the artists mentioned earlier, these stories are murkier and full of feeling and intimacy. One might even hear some reminiscences of works of Timothy Renner (Stone Breath, Crow Tongue...) or even legendary Coil in more ambient parts and synthesizer works. The beauty and depth of detail of his magnum opus of is underlined by masterful guitarwork and his soft and tender vocals.
Life is a sequence of goodbyes and blessing ways.
