Two years after the release of their debut album Rustik Musik William Soovik Grand Finale is back with the follow up; Major. This time it's a bit looser and slightly more stretched out than before. Still with the melodies and energy from our first album, Rustik Musik. Unlike our first album this one doesn’t spring from a “particularly heavy gig-drought”. It’s been a couple of pretty good years since our debut. I’ve had the pleasure to make some really nice music with some great musicians and this time the record is truly a product of genuine inspiration, a minor life crisis, jazz, improvisation and rock n’ roll in a big greasy bucket. The music is still rustic and insanely fun to play. This time we’ve tried to capture the way the music sounds in a live situation. We are allowing ourselves more time to develop our solos and stretch out. It’s more open, more rickety, looser and all together a wilder expression of our sound than on our first album but always melodic and even beautiful sometimes. One of the tunes is a jingle for a sitcom that never aired. The same tune is later a reflection around life as a semi- established, lightly crising, freelance musician who makes music that most people don't care for. One is a homage to Mr Carson from Downton Abbey. One is a continuation, one is an ending, one is a wedding waltz in 4/4 time, one is a cry for help and one is just a melody. I would truly appreciate it if you took the time to listen to what we’ve done here. I am happy and proud and I feel like we made something really special with this one. I’m just a musician though, so what do I know...
