On his debut album Garden Clogs, the Helsinki producer Handshaking combines the sweetness of nostalgic house and contemporary pop with self-aware hints of indie. Handshaking sprinkles cheeky tributes from Finnish countryside culture, creating music that thrives on honesty. Garden Clogs is a reflection of growing up in a rural area, not too far away from city life. Behind Handshaking is Fedja Kamari, whose distinctive singing is set against a backdrop of traditional percussion and electronics that remember the past while inviting the future. Amidst bubbly house tracks, Handshaking shows the full breadth of his capability with Boring Fields and Garden Clogs; tunes that slow the album down and act as a palate cleanser. Garden Clogs is a concept album; a cosmic house saga set underneath blooming apple trees and rhubarb leaves.
