Here’s another case of a request by a musician that arrived in an email that ended up in my Junk E-mail folder. What is my email program thinking? That musicians are suspicious people? (Note to Outlook: Grrr.)
This time, the hapless email sender was Finnish musician Esa Linna (Hi, Esa!) who told me he’s released a new single.
And here it is:
Esa Linna – “Don’t Know What It’s All About” (2012)
That’s a free download.
Thanks, Linna, for letting me know about your new song. And sorry about my over-enthusiastic email program.

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.
