Husky Rescueâ€™s â€˜Caravanâ€™ sounds pretty much exactly what youâ€™d expect a Scandinavian five-piece holed up in a Helsinki mobile home to sound likeâ€” glacial, ethereal, and distantly sexy. Reeta-Leena Korhola coos should I stay or fade away? over tight high-hat and longing lap steel as shadows and echoes float on pastâ€” little surprise, since â€˜Caravanâ€™ finds it home on the bandâ€™s â€˜Ghost Is Not Realâ€™ LP. Thereâ€™s an eerier edge to the track than anything on 2004â€™s â€˜Country Fallsâ€™, and the same goes for b-side â€˜Shadow Runâ€™, a metronomic, moody number over which Korhola and Miika Lommi trade monotone vocals about shadow boys and girls. Best served chilled.
