Welcome to our weekly RSS feed friendly round up of the last seven day's social media music recommendations.
Ami Dang - Parted Plains (Leaving Records)
The new age of New Age, Indian tradition & our present day electronic reality clash to mesmerising, psychedelic effect as Ami Dang catapults the ancient sound of the sitar into the 21st century & beyond with this futuristic, fungus fueled fusion for Leaving Records.
NOT WAVING / Dark Mark - Downwelling (Ecstatic)
If you're listening to musings on the human condition then best they come from someone like Mark Lanegan whose husky voice sounds like he's seen a thing or two & given it some thought. Couple this with the fuzzed up, strung out & pleasingly unpredictable sonic scenery of Alessio Natalizia & you have a truly distinctive LP from a very particular pairing.
Persian Empire - ABOUT/BLANK (Rx:tx)
Future music frivolity from Persian Empire as he escapes our musical cage & constructs a genre neutral, creatively crafted, jazz injected, funk inflected, hip pop beat ark that effortlessly floats above the rising tides of data driven, music homogeneity for Slovenia's Rx:tx.
Tapani Rinne - Radioton (Aani)
The perfect soundtrack for midweek lulling from Tapani Rinne, as one of Finland's finest melts his sax & clarinet into subtle machine sounds to create a soothing, cultured & harmonious electro acoustic ambient Arcadia. Lovely stuff & thanks to Ambient Blog for the tip.
Gwakasonné - Vwayajé (Seance Centre)
Big up to Séance Centre for introducing me to the deeply affecting Afro Caribe jazz of Gwakasonné. Fusing Guadeloupe folk traditions, spiritual jazz & early electronic embellishments, Robert Oumaou's musical visions of unity, protest, poetry, past & (80's) present is a simply wonderful, life affirming joy. If you haven't got €30 or a record player stream the original LPs.
Sarathy Korwar - More Arriving (Leaf)
This Indo jazz charged cathartic cry from Sarathy Korwar & his group of Delhi & Mumbai rappers expounding the Indian diaspora experience of populist politicians cynically harnessing fear rather than hope & undoing years of multi-cultural integration, tolerance & understanding for Leaf Label is a take no prisoners wake up call.
Soda Lite - Vale & Stone (Inner Islands)
OUR MISSION STATEMENT GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS
Lazy Days, Hazy Moments & Dancing to a Slower Groove
