CD Review: Esa Linna Claims That "She's Not A Human Being"
For the last 20 years, Esa Linna has been performing in punk, grunge and rock bands beginning with Time Flies and currently as a member of Itamaa. After writing solo material for over 10 years, it was time for Esa to put some of that material together for a new 2012 album. But in the meantime, we get just a taste of his solo work with a 4-song EP entitled “She’s Not A Human Being.”
The new release opens with the power-pop title song that is sure to open up some new eyes (and ears) to his music. The radio-friendly beats and lyrics seem to come natural to Esa and his bandmates. Esa expands on his songwriting with the slow-jaunt of “20,000 Days.” Esa handles all the instruments on the heartfelt, folk ballad “Piece of Me,” but finishes with the out of place, electronic experimental song “Meat Market.”
