Soulful Finnish pianist Tuomo Prättälä and guitarist Markus Nordenstreng of the Americana-leaning Latebirds recorded their debut, Dead Circles, in Arizona two years ago with members of Calexico, Wilco, and the Jayhawks. Released stateside last fall, the album has a prevailing vibe of Americana folk laced with pop and rock. The duo’s intricate vocal harmonies are often accented by subtly sparkling Euro-psychedelia electronics and horn parts from Finnish jazz trumpeter Verneri Pohjola. More recent is an EP with striking covers of Prince’s “America,” Dylan’s “Political World,” and the Youngbloods’ “Get Together.”
