Artist: Alice Tisler
Title: Märtrid
Language: Estonian

I was drawn to this track on YouTube by the name of the band. Alice Tisler, from what I have gained by very bad translations of websites about her, seemed to be an important Estonian revolutionary figure who died in a battle at Keila in 1918 between the Red Army and German military units. I would love to hear any further information about her. I am afraid my knowledge of the Estonian language is zero, so I can’t read the articles properly, but it sounds like she deserves further investigation.

This band were big in Estonia between 1988-1990. They have a slightly ramshackle feel, which I really like.
