world, new age, tradition, experimentation | 35:33 min | WEB FLAC (tracks) | 127 MB
Label: Driftless Recordings

Barry Walker is a multi-instrumentalist blurring the lines of tradition and experimentation. His approach integrates elements of folk, country, drone, rock & roll, electronic, and exotica. Modes of melody, joy, and spiritualism are mingled with dischord, sadness, and impotence. Barry is a self-taught musician whose creative output is informed by the study of granite magmatism, geochronology, Ralph Stanley, Red Rhodes, Evan Parker, and more. His weapons of choice are the pedal steel guitar, guitar, and singing.

Raw Silk blends classical sitar, electric cello, Indian vocals and experimental electronics into a long-form head massage. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, Alexa Richardson (cello) and Ami Dang (sitar, voice, electronics) started making music together as part of living room jam sessions and eventually realized that their sonic interests couldn’t be better matched: they both push the envelope of their classically-trained upbringings through string instruments (that surprisingly complement one another).

Fenfo (Something To Say), Fatoumata's highly anticipated 2018 sophomore album, is a gorgeous set of original songs produced by noted French producer Matthieu Chedid. Ranging from the infectious dance grooves of "Nan Bel" to the passionate balladry of "Don Do," Fenfo, which also features the acclaimed classical cellist Vincent Segal, is bound to be hailed as a World music masterpiece.

"Bricolage," a French word meaning to assemble something from available materials, is such a perfect term for the art of the remix that it's surprising no one has ever used it before. It's less surprising that Ryuichi Sakamoto, whose work has always had a cool Continental flair despite the artist's Japanese roots, would choose such an elegant term for his swish remix collection. Focusing on reworks of material from 2005's back-to-the-roots electro-pop experiment Chasm, Bricolages features a cross-cultural and cross-generational batch of remixers including Cornelius, whose playful sense of pastiche is to current hipster Japanese pop what Sakamoto's Yellow Magic Orchestra was a quarter-century before; his take on the spoken word cut-up "War & Peace" is considerably lighter and groovier than Aoki Takamasa's tense, austere version. Former Japan drummer Steve Jansen, whose collaboration with Sakamoto goes back to the early '80s, contributes the skittering "Break With," bridging the gap between new wave disco and contemporary IDM.

There's very little doubt that the Gipsy Kings are good at what they do–they've become the brand name in Sevillana, the pop-oriented flamenco style. Since 1989, when the single "Bamboleo" and their Gipsy Kings album broke through and went gold in the United States, they've found a willing audience in America for their style, which, while flashy, doesn't demand a great deal of the listener, unlike more hardcore versions of flamenco. This double set collects 38 of their biggest tracks, including a version of the Eagles' "Hotel California," into one package guaranteed to satisfy fans of their precise, jubilant playing. And there's no denying they have the power to move people with their singing and fretwork, making this a must for those who want to experience all the familiar material in one sitting. Like the band themselves, the record is an unqualified success as a greatest hits package.

Label: Righteous Babe | # RBR-006-D | Time: 00:47:59
Singer/Songwriter, Alternative Folk, Anti-Folk, Indie Rock

DiFranco spruces up her sparse folk arrangements with the odd brass band, accordion, and even an electric guitar or two, but the meat of these songs is still her distinctively funky acoustic guitar style (she borrowed her rhythmic plucking technique from R&B, but unplugged, it bears no resemblance to its genre of origin). Meanwhile, DiFranco's spunky activist lyrics are tempered here by a bigger dose of vulnerability than in previous albums, which allows for a unique mix of anger, humor, and poignancy. The best songs this time around are not bitter, but quietly reflective ("You Had Time," "Buildings and Bridges," "If He Tries Anything").

There they were joined by two world-class woodwind specialists: Carlos Malta, one of the world's most influential Brazilian musicians and Chris Bullock, member of the powerhouse group Snarky Puppy. The album was conceived as an audiovisual project, with equal weight given to the sonic and visual aspects of the work.

With their ringing, bagpipe-like guitars and the anthemic songs of frontman Stuart Adamson, Scotland's Big Country emerged as one of the most distinctive and promising new rock bands of the early '80s, scoring a major hit with their debut album, The Crossing; though the group's critical and commercial fortunes dimmed in the years to follow, they nevertheless outlasted virtually all of their contemporaries, releasing new material into the next century.

Alfonso XII is a group from France which was founded in 1988 by four friends. Through the years they released several albums. Most of them had a theme about a historical person. People like Marco Polo, Charles Darwin, or Claude Monet were the subject of their concept albums. Some people wrote they were inspired by Mike Oldfield. Other times when you hear the music on their albums other names pop up such as The Alan Parsons Project or even Pink Floyd. For some reviewers the music they released on their albums wasn't always easy to digest. The main reason for this is because they don't stick to one musical genre…
