The easy way to sell this, the last album of Nathan Bell, would be to get into the lurid details of the circumstances surrounding his ending – what he was doing out at the mailbox at that ungodly hour, with that particular combination of power tools and gardening implements. Not to mention the hot sauce. (We’ll leave the hot sauce to the National Inquirer.) Let’s just state the obvious, namely that it appears he did not take his own advice: “Keep your balance / When everything shifts.”

One of the most revered musicians in Bulgaria, clarinetist Ivo Papasov is a master of Bulgarian wedding music. The superb and largely instrumental Balkanology draws not only on Bulgarian elements, but also the music of Greece, Turkey and Romania. Listening to this heartfelt music (much of it quite fast), one can hear the parallels between Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and East European forms.

The 10th Studio Album in a 35 year career sees this Classic British Band finesse their ribald recipe of roots randomness into a carnival of colour, sound and surrealism. Recorded with producer Jim Knight at the old home studio of the legendary Kirsty MacColl in leafy Ealing, this collections of ballads, rants and shanties mixes folk and pop, rock and reel, rhythm and roll, blues and soul and gives it a damn good shaking. The Men They Couldn't Hang have long mixed poignant political epics with potent frenzy, once being compared to a 'riot in a fairground'.

Modern Acoustic Blues | Label: Alligator | # ALCD124 | Time: 00:50:

Alligator Records shows a different side of its house-rocking face on this 13-cut collection of acoustic blues. While Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Bukka White don't appear here, other performers – some of whom one normally associates with overdriven electricity – are. Buddy Guy is present, as is Stevie Ray Vaughan. Koko Taylor's "The Man Next Door" is here and it's one of her greatest performances on record. In addition, Johnny Winter, who was no stranger to a National Steel string bottleneck earlier in his career, returns to give it another go, and the true roots doctor Corey Harris is here with "God Don't Ever Change," and Carey and Lurrie Bell with "Stop Running Around." Guy's "Hi Heel Sneakers" is terrific as is Winter's "Evil on My Mind." But it's those that are normally associated with the acoustic blues like Harris, Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women, Cephas & Wiggins, John Jackson and the legendary Sonny Terry who come off best, bringing the true rhythm and mystery with them into their songs.

Der Nino aus Wien ist aus der deutschsprachigen Musiklandschaft gar nicht mehr wegzudenken. 2008 erschien sein damals noch akustisches Singer-Songwriter-Debüt-Werk "The Ocelot Show" zu einer Zeit, als es wirklich nichts gab, was man damit vergleichen konnte. Danach ging es Schlag auf Schlag: eine Band formierte sich hinter Nino, die bereits 2009 mit dem Hit "Du Oasch" und dem dazugehörenden "Album Down in Albern" in die erste Liga der österreichischen Indie-Welt aufsteigen sollte. Er entstaubte den Austropop und das Wiener Lied und diente als Vorbild für Künstler wie Voodoo Jürdens, Wanda und andere Neo-Austropopper. Der Nino aus Wien feiert mit seiner neuen Platte sein 10-jähriges Jubiläum.

A little while before the klezmer explosion of the 90's there was Ivo Papasov and his Bulgarian Wedding Band. More Bulgarian than klezmer per se, this music nonetheless evokes a similar spirit, especially with Papasov's frenetically intense and beautiful clarinet runs and vocalist Maria Karafizieva's impassioned singing. He employs an electric and slightly funky rhythm section which, while arguably diluting the true nature of the music, does serve to make it extremely listener friendly, providing a solid ground for the wilder instrumental forays.

2018 is a monumental year for The Rumjacks. The celtic, folk, punk rock band are celebrating their 10th year anniversary together with Saints Preserve Us! The 12-track album is a blistering ball of wild energy that sees the band in peak performance, showing a level of musicianship and songwriting that only 10 years of endless touring and playing together can bring. The album was recorded over a few weeks at Crono Sound Factory in Milan, Italy during June this year, and was produced by singer and main songwriter Frankie McLaughlin. Since the bands inception in Sydney, Australia in late 2008 when singer and main songwriter Frankie McLaughlin met Bassist Johnny McKelvey, the band has gone on to tour endlessly to countless countries all over the world, playing multiple sold-out shows throughout Europe, performing to 400,000 people on the main stage at Woodstock Festival in Poland, tour coast-to-coast through the USA and shared stages with some of the best punk rock bands in the world.

EMI's double-CD collection of Ravi Shankar's works including Western instruments, however, is one of the exceptions, for it adds a great deal even to the conversation carried on by those who have paid attention to the career of the man widely considered modern-day India's greatest musician. The attraction here, in a nutshell, is that this CD set brings together music recorded between 1966 and 1982, much of it only sporadically available up to now. There are two concertos for Shankar's sitar (a large Indian lute with sympathetically resonating strings) and orchestra, plus works he wrote for collaborations with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal. For purposes of comparison, there's also one performance by Shankar alone.

This programme features music which was nearly all composed (or at least written down) in the lifetime of Henry V of England (1387-1422). It divides into broad sections depicting various important stages in his life from his wild youth to his marriage to Catherine de Valois and the treaty following the battle of Agincourt. The texts are taken from three sources: Holinshed’s Chronicles, Shakespeare’s 'Henry V' and 'The Archer’s Story' by Esmond Knight, who played Fluellen in Laurence Olivier’s film of play. The spoken texts narrate the story of the battle, its build-up and aftermath from different points of view.

After 25 years, constant traveling, nine albums, and various solo projects, Saffire are calling it quits with one last tour and Havin' the Last Word, a collection of new tunes, covers of favorites, and songs that define their dissolution. It sounds as though it's a happy-sad decision, gratified for all the success and love accrued from their fans, but pleased for future blues via other partnerships and collaborations that can now be achieved individually. Though all will pursue solo careers – Ann Rabson is already firmly established – it is this magical and timeless combination of spirit, focused same-page concept, and great musicianship that has served Saffire very well far beyond most bands. This final effort showcases individual vocal tracks, as if the group members are already preparing for going out on their own, as there's very little group harmonizing. Individual efforts notwithstanding, the group still convenes musically on common ground, especially when Rabson plays piano, Gaye Adegbalola jams on the slide guitar or harmonica, and Andra Faye offers her musings on fiddle, mandolin, or upright bass.
