Lyrics by Lyric: J.T. Lehtonen

Lyrics by Lyric Hey guys! Lyric here. This week, I'm bringing you a musician-songwriter from Finland by the name of J.T. Lehtonen. His album, Land of Dust, was made over a six-year period and began when he built his own rehearsal room and recording studio to the downstairs of his garage. He began writing material and riffs, and eventually everything pieced together for him. He played all of the instruments himself using midi-drums, before asking ex-HIM drummer  Mika Karppinen ("Gas Lipstick") to play the drums for four tracks. The album has 12 tracks, and ranges from a rock to an alternative vibe. The music itself makes me want to headbang until my head falls off. The riffs are to die for, and the beat of the drums is enough to make my heart almost beat out of my chest. All 12 of the tracks has a unique version of lyrics to them, and for being processed over 6 years, this album is extremely well done. I'm impressed that he was able to come up with all of this on his own, without very many inputs of others. He had the help of two other musicians for drums and that was about it. What really inspires me about this album, is that he had taken his time over 6 years in order to produce it, and he wanted to make it perfect and perform exactly how he wanted it to sound. That takes both dedication and talent on his end. He saw a dream, and he pursued it, regardless of what anyone else had said. Although I couldn't find any lyrics online, the emotion behind them alone are what makes each song great. You can also tell by the variations in the music that he's extremely passionate about what he's doing. One of my favorite songs to listen to musically is track 04, "You're Wrong". It's very chill, relaxing, and has a great vibe to it. I think I replayed it about 12 times before I moved on to the next song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TamUTirDeYQ I think the album as a whole is a big "F---- you" to anyone who ever doubted his musical ability. The raw talent in Land of Dust is very apparent and speaks volumes to anyone who listens to it. (Which, by the way, I think you should listen to it immediately. Especially if you are a fan of alternative rock. It will definitely satisfy your craving for good new music). Lyric thinks this album is: Honestly, with all of the work that was put into the album over the past 6 years and with how good it sounds, it would be a crime if I didn't give this album a 6/6. Well done, J.T... your work on Land of Dust has paid off. I can't wait to see what else he comes up with in the years to come. Until next time Lyric
