New CD!

November 14th, 2013

It's in the can!

It’s in the can!










The first full length Wonderminers CD is out on January 16th. It’s called “These Fell Off The Shelf” and it’s a good one.

To celebrate it we’re playing a release show on that date in Semifinal, Helsinki. We’ll have a special lineup and also the fantastic Kytäjä are joining us. Grand!



First one off the shelf

March 11th, 2013












Yes, I’m working on some Wonderminers songs again. To hear the first finished one, follow the link below –  it’s a (by my standards, anyway) noisy one about youth, summer and sound.



New track up

October 16th, 2011

Ok, it’s not new but you haven’t heard it yet.

Gift was originally demoed with the band Red Carpet in 2006. This version was recorded by JVA in November 2009 – Olli’s on drums, Samuli on bass, me doing the rest.


Turku city night

September 4th, 2011


Set list for last night’s almost solo show at the Flavour Of The Month club:

Faraway boy
When you sing
My part of town
Stars in the window
Sick of dreaming
Good news (feat. Heidi)
You And I (Wilco-cover feat.Heidi)
Streets Of Your Town (Go-betweens cover)

The Genuine Fakes and Sugarrush were great fun! I recorded a clip of the Fakes’ show – check it out on the singer Johan’s blog.


Semifinal tomorrow

July 12th, 2011

Our next show is tomorrow at Semifinal, Helsinki. Sadly it will be the last show with Olli on his famous suitcase drums – at least for a couple of years. Starting from next month he’ll be more prominent on the Bangladesh indie pop scene..

So come see us while you still can! No pressure.



EP out now

May 17th, 2011











And now it’s finally out there – please enjoy.

You can preview two tracks from the EP from SoundCloud. The whole thing is available on iTunes, more shops to follow soon..


My part of town

April 13th, 2011

Our debut single is called “My part of town” and it’s now available on iTunes!



March 29th, 2011

Yes, I’m still here. And with news!

4.5.2011 Club Liberte, Helsinki
13.5.2011 acoustic @ Indian Summer vintage store, Helsinki

I’m very pleased to announce that the Wonderminers’ debut EP will be released digitally before Summer. One of the songs will be leaked to an internet near you very soon.
