I can’t think of anything else I would rather listen to this winter’s evening than ’20 Fingers 20 Toes’ by Goodnight Monster. Perhaps it’s the effect of a hangover or perhaps it’s the realisation that 9-2-5 is beckoning in a couple of hours. Whatever it is about these Finns (Matti Jasu and Valtteri Virtanen), right now the twee glow from this song is all I need to lock out the world outside. They have an album too called ‘The Brain That Wouldn’t Die’ and a quick glance of some its reviews reveals that ’20 Fingers 20 Toes’ isn’t alone in its venture to please those enamoured with simple melodies and cute musical gestures. The lyrics also toe the party line, being as innocently exuberant as a 3 years old attempt to break his keepy uppy record. Goodnight Monster are currently working on their sophomore record. KD
