Germany based singer-songwriter Mäkkelä is starting his touring year with a first run of shows in Norway & Finland, presenting his latest release "Dog & Typewriter". A stripped-down, reduced to the essentials programme of intense, at times even worrying, acoustic songs. "Dog & Typewriter" and its predecessor "Trad & Anger" deliver what has become the artist's trademark over hundreds of live shows in both Europe and overseas, combining atmospheric Folk Noir far from genre clichés with an obsessive live performance of scarce intensity. You may expect exceptional concerts of one of Europe's most distinct and interesting solo performers. A performance that reminds at times of a Strummer-meets-Cohen-meets-Waits kind of thing.
This album grows on you with each listen and is a definite musos album. With definite echoes of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and the booze lashed, cigarette stinking romanticism of Shane MacGowan's lyrics, Mäkkelä takes a less trodden path and invites you on his journey in search for a 'Homeland'."
(Fatea Magazine, UK)
"[...] songs strikingly reminiscent of folk-noir scene greats like the twin US bands 16 Horsepower and Woven Hand in instrumentation, composition and arrangements."
(Frankenpost, Germany)
"[...]folk, jazz, world moves, and topical/timeless folk songs. [...] spirited intensity underneath all of these songs."
