Song of the day: Esa Linna – "She’s Not A Human Being"

I received an email from a Finnish gentleman by the name of Esa Linna (Hi, Esa!), and it began with:

“Hello! This one’s for Peter’s Power Pop!”

I like that enthusiasm.

Esa mentioned his new song, “She’s Not A Human Being“:

Roger Joseph Manning Jr. featuring in Finnish artist Esa Linna’s just released solo single and upcoming debut album

Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (of The Jellyfish, Moog Cookbook, TV Eyes, Imperial Drag) sings backing vocals and plays keyboards in debut album and debut single “She’s Not a Human Being” by Esa Linna, from Finland.

“She’s Not A Human Being” is a straight-forward powerpop song, like a combination of The Buzzcocks and The Beatles. The single is released as digital download, and in CD format next year.

The song is mastered by Ty Tabor of King’s X.

I had a listen to the song, and I’m glad I did. For the record (ho ho), I think it’s a cute song. Thanks, Esa!

If you have an aversion to Soundcloud, you can also hear the song on YouTube or on iTunes.

    Gee, Peter, that's funny (ho ho). I got an email from Mr. Linna that read as follows:

    “Hello! This one's for Powerpopulist, hope that suits to your site!”

    Two-timin' son of a Finn.

    Oh, well, I'm glad we both like it. ;D

  2. Peter says:

    Or maybe he likes both of us.

  3. Esa says:

    Damn, got busted! Ho ho! I like both of you, in fact anyone.

  4. Peter says:

    No problem, Esa. I'm just thrilled that you'd heard about the both of us (Powerpopulist and me), and took the trouble to let us know about your music.

    Not bad – I'll give this one a run on-air next program I do…

  6. Peter says:

    Mighty good, Mr. Fabulous.

    Peter, sites like yours are the best places to spread the word out! I don't like to spam to every music site out there, only those where people are finding out new power pop & pop rock songs.

  8. Peter says:

    Hey Esa: I must admit that your email didn't feel like spam at all.

    Even if you emailed a hundred other people about your music, I for one am glad that, thanks to the Internet, you're actually able to contact a hundred-and-one people about the music you make.

    I think all of this is A Very Good Thing Indeed — unless, of course, the music being spread around is dreadful (but in your case I'm happy to say it isn't).
