Three of a Kind #89

I know what you're thinking: "Where the blazes can I find some nineties' Estonian synth pop along the lines of Stereolab and Broadcast with a dash of early Cardigans type poppiness thrown in for good measure?" It's a quandary for sure. But I think I may well just be able to help... in fact, yes - yes I can!


Existing between 1991 and 2003, Dallas (the Estonian band pictured above rather than the US state or the defunct soap opera) lined up something like this:

KRISTI KINDEL - vocals, synthesizers
HOLGER LOODUS - guitar, vocals
TAUNO PÄÄSLANE - bass, guitar
IVIKA NOOP - keyboards
ALLAN AMBERG - drums

You may also remember Kristi Kindel from her role in the heart-warming family movie classic Miracle on 34th Street, in which she donned a red suit and long white beard and - no, wait, I think I'm getting confused again.

Anyway, here are some rather good songs from Dallas's eponymously-titled 1999 album, one of which, ironically, is about an actual, legendary film star.

Dallas - Let's Split mp3

Dallas - Raj Kapoor mp3

Dallas - Sleeper's Entertainer mp3

Yes but where the blazes can I find some nineties Estonian synth pop along the lines of Stereolab and Broadcast with a dash of early Cardigans type poppiness thrown in for good measure?

It's everywhere man. Like that black Range Rover Clitoris - every cunt's got one.
