Out of Nowhere is the fifth album from Finland's most flamboyant export, Jimi Tenor. Fans of Tenor's sleazy/easy electro cabaret (imagine Soft Cell crossed with Frank Sinatra) won't be disappointed by this latest offering, but they may be perplexed at first. Jimi has undergone a conversion; he has discovered orchestras. The album opens with a return to Tenor's more experimentally inclined roots, a four-minute pastiche of contemporary composers, including Ligeti. John Barry this ain't; "Hypnotic Drugstore" even wheels out a sitar for some exotic fusion funk
There's a heavy dichotomy on Out of Nowhere, the competing forces being Tenor's overweening musical ambition and his utter lack of vocal talent (which isn't to say he's not a solid performer). Strangely though, Tenor makes it work, often in a similar fashion to orchestral indie rockers like Mercury Rev or Flaming Lips.
Jimi Tenor was the first and last hope for offensively distasteful electronic music. The man accentuated his cheesy influences- Barry. While Tenor is no John Barry or Ennio Morricone, this track does provide Out of Nowhere with its one suitably insistent, memorably cinematic theme, apparently for a film that could have used a lot more blood-spilling. As an added bonus, it exploits the latent potential of the 55-piece orchestra moreso than any of the previous tracks. Backbone of Night" relapses into Bollywood atmospherics, heightened by some late orchestral flourishes upon which Tenor lays a heavily treated but perfunctory vocal. Spell" finally cuts the crap and delivers the funking ass-swing
