MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 3:42:34 | 512 Mb
Genre: Country, Blues, Soul, Gospel / Label: Sony Music

This new 67-track collection from Now! showcases the very best of the all-American genre that is country music. Included are the likes of Dolly Parton, Leann Rimes, Glen Campbell and more. Eventually, most records from Nashville featured this style of production and the Nashville sound began to incorporate strings and vocal choirs. Most of its songs are built around three chords and a plain melody, but these forms are so basic, they allow for many different styles, from the gritty sounds of honky tonk to the jazzy improvisations of Western Swing. Although it sometimes faded away from view, Western swing remained popular throughout, occasionally experiencing upswings in popularity.

Some people will probably take it wrong, but central Arkansas folk-rock icon Kevin Kerby is a minor leaguer. That’s not meant as an insult. Every AA player could play in the major leagues tomorrow; it’s only luck or politics or the tyranny of numbers that keeps them from doing so. Kerby’s a pro and his honest, solid songwriting is so heartening and refreshing that we wish reviews like this matter – “something obvious and bright, that’s what we need.”

Billie Holiday's first recordings for Norman Granz' Clef Records present a vocalist truly at the top of her craft, although she would begin a rapid decline soon thereafter. This 1952 recording (originally issued as a 10" LP, Billie Holiday Sings) places Holiday in front of small piano and tenor saxophone-led groups including jazz luminaries such as Oscar Peterson and Charlie Shavers, where her gentle phrasing sets the tone for the sessions, evoking lazy evenings and dreamy afternoons. The alcoholism and heroin use that would be her downfall by the end of this decade seems to be almost unfathomable during these recordings since Holiday is in as fine a voice as her work in the '30s, and the musical environment seems ideal for these slow torch songs…

Ambient

The Drop finds Brian Eno replicating the floating, trancy sound of Neroli, creating a shimmering collection of ambient music. Although The Drop illustrates that ambient doesn't all sound the same – it can be soothing and scary, sometimes both at once – the album doesn't particularly hold the listener's interest, as the shifting electronic soundscapes never reveal any substantial compositions…

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 64:20 | 261 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Sony Music | Catalog: 46486

The prize here is the Rachmaninoff cello sonata, a warm, hyper-Romantic musical tapestry that gives both the pianist and cellist a major workout. Ma is a superb chamber-music player, as is Ax. Both offer the kind of artistic give-and-take that a great performance of this music requires, while neither weighs the music down with excessive indulgence. The Prokofiev, a very different sort of musical beast, is a much lighter work, but it's done no less well. This is one of Ma's best chamber-music discs.

Brazilian group BACAMARTE (which is Portuguese for blunderbuss) recorded this gem in 1977 but it was only released in 1983. The musical inspiration came from guitarist and leader Mário Neto, who wrote six and a half of the nine tracks on "Depois Do Fim" (After The End). Trained in Spanish classical guitar, his playing and composition are accomplished…

Two welcome changes in style made Blue Valentine a fresh listening experience for Tom Waits fans. First, Waits alters the instrumentation, bringing in electric guitar and keyboards and largely dispensing with the strings for a more blues-oriented, hard-edged sound. Second, though his world view remains fixed on the lowlifes of the late night, he expands beyond the musings of the barstool philosopher who previously had acted as the first-person character of most of his songs. When Waits does use the first-person, it's to write a "Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis"…

Genre: Post-Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: n5MD

Go Mirage is the 3rd full-length album from Chicago cinematic-rock trio To Destroy A City. This follow-up to 2014's post-rock paragon Sunless has an added immediacy due to the soaring nature of guitarist Michael Marshall's step toward the mic. Yes… There are vocals! Post-rock for the most part, has mainly utilized vocals as a texture or afterthought. Yet, To Destroy A City have adeptly included vocals into their cinematic tapestries with ease, and in the process added another layer of melody, modesty, and a surprising sense of hope to their already affecting guitar-driven compositions. There is an air of instant gratification with Go Mirage. It seems to push you forward to the next horizon, much as its title might suggest…

WEB FLAC (tracks) - 288 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 137 MB | Front cover
Genre: Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Kranky

Ambient power duo Anjou's sophomore statement continues in the vein of their 2014 debut, unfurling a full hour of mesmeric synthetic drift and veiled melodic undertow. Comprised of Mark Nelson (of pioneering post-rock experimentalists Labradford and Pan·American) and Robert Donne (of Labradford, Aix Em Klemm, Cristal) , the group work largely in long-form suites of sound, alternately spacious and dense. The new LP's six pieces embrace flux and ambiguity: drones swell and shudder, hushed currents of noise glitch and dissolve, atmospheres congeal and liquify. As with the participants' prior projects, Anjou evoke a shadowed, mysterious mood, variously melancholy and transcendent. The album is an accumulation of craftsmanship and experience, blurred forms traced in light and fog.

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: World's End Records (WERCD2)

The Emerald Dawn are very interesting and totally absorbing tight-knit multi-instrumental rock band combining wonderfully harmonious symphonic progressive rock music cemented together with beautifully melodic fretless bass runs and exquisite extremely well ordered dual keyboard, saxophone and electric guitar melody lines. Whilst there are certain elements of Camel about the makeup of their music they are, without doubt, sufficiently individualistic to be considered quite unique…

The music on "Oceanarium" is entirely instrumental, densely orchestrated, and has a wide variety of instruments, including cello, trumpet, bass clarinet, flute, saxophone, hammered dulcimer, banjo, mandolin, violin, oboe, and trombone, in addition to the usual keyboards, guitars, bass, and drums. Although many musical styles are included, the end result probably fits nicely under the label "symphonic prog"…
