Paavoharju - Yhä hämärää (2005)
This album carries a pretty dark tone but it's definitely not the menacing kind. Rather, it sounds like sitting around in a forest at night while gazing upon your surroundings. The album has that warm fuzzy feeling that even borders ethereal. The vocalist sounds quite exotic and the fact that the lyrics are in Finnish add to that feeling and may even carry some dream pop vibes. There are many unique sounds to be heard here that helps this album stand out from the rest using synths, field recordings, and other sounds that I can't really decipher. Definitely a unique album worth checking out.
