Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie

This album is inspired by bits and pieces of Ethio-Jazz, Afrobeat, Highlife Spiritual Jazz and dusty funk 45’s. It’s where I’m at now and what has kept this mortal vehicle fueled. I tend to take different paths each musical outing but this one is for the long haul, the one for the blue highways and forgotten byways. It’s the one to get lost to. It’s about the journey, not the destination." Tommy Guerrero continues pushing the boundaries while upholding his San Francisco Bay heritage. Starting from the Bones Brigade skate team in the '80s, he’s made movie appearances, designed for Levi's in Japan, Vans shoes worldwide and Sutro eyewear among others, signed a skateboard contract with Converse, co-founded Real Skateboards and 40’s Clothing, is art director for Krooked Skateboarding, and found time to be a prolific recording artist.

Saigon Supersound Volume 2
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Saigon Supersound)

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
Saigon Supersound Continues… to present more interesting tunes of a musical era that has long been obscured. With the well-received Volume 1, we are very delighted to dig deeper and share with you the beautiful music of a short but significant period in Vietnam‘s history.Much like the country itself, the music of Vietnam has endured many twists. As the result of the Geneva Accords in 1954, Vietnam was divided into two. From the North, the Nationalist forces fought to reunite Vietnam as a Communist State, while the American troops backed the government of the South. This caused a mass migration of Northerners to the South, which includes many Tân Nhạc (Modern Music) singers and songwriters. Often characterized by its emotive, poetic and prolific personality, Tân Nhạc continued to freely develop in the South and progressively vacating from the influences of its main inspiration, French music. In the North, the Resistance music, or the so-called Nhạc Đỏ (Red Music), which promoted socialism, patriotism and anti-capitalism was the only genre allowed on national radio. Tân Nhạc was something new to the South Vietnamese repertoire. Between 1954–1960, the theme of hometown (quê hương) was a main inspiration for many songwriters such as Hoàng Thi Thơ, Lam Phương and Nguyễn Hữu Thiết. The 9th title of the compilation, “Thôn Trăng Mở Hội Trăng Tròn” showcases a variety of images that were often described in this genre: the harvest moon, playful children, old mother…Every recording made in this era is then an organic combination of human experiences, communications and uniqueness. In 1965, the first American troop landed in Vietnam, bringing with them the musical influences of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley… The Vietnamese people quickly integrated it into the repertoire with hope to further diversify the music of Vietnam. Constantly changing and learning from different cultures, the modern music of Vietnam cuts a window into the soul of a Vietnamese person and the country’s history as a whole. With that, we hope that Saigon Supersound Volume 2 would take you on a trip back to the unique atmosphere of Saigon through the many different palettes of music that this beautiful place offers.

2LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Music From Memory)
24,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe, 1980-1991' is compiled by record connoisseur Raphael Top-Secret and label man Jamie Tiller that brings together twenty one tracks from across the continent; exploring the more unusual and unexpected sides of pop music produced during that period. Printed Inner sleeves.Drawing material from cult experimental artists alongside one-off independent musical projects rescued from the fringes, ’Uneven Paths’ focuses on a selection of tracks that go beyond the confines of mainstream pop music but which also transcend expectations of much of the ’experimental’ music of the time. This is music with one foot in the avant-garde and another foot firmly rooted within the sensibilities of Pop; where Jazz musicians detour into Synth-Pop, Punk bands break into Boogie jams, and student doctors jam out on odd melodies with synthesizers and drum machines during their night shifts.

LP | 1973 | US | Reissue (Light In The Attic)

Release:1973 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
The unbelievably prolific Haruomi Hosono is one of the major architects of modern Japanese pop music. With his encyclopedic knowledge of music and boundless curiosity for new sounds, Hosono has put his unmistakable stamp on hundreds of recordings as a session player, producer, and auteur of his own idiosyncratic musical world. Born and raised in central Tokyo, his adolescent obsession with American pop culture informed his early forays into country music, which he would revisit later in his career. Hosono made his professional debut in 1969 as a member of Apryl Fool, whose heavy psychedelia was somewhat at odds with his influences, which leaned towards the rootsy sounds of Moby Grape and Buffalo Springfield. The latter was one of the main inspirations for his next group, Happy End, whose unique blend of West Coast sounds with Japanese lyrics proved to be highly influential over the course of three albums.After Happy End’s amicable break up in 1973, Hosono released Hosono House, an intimate slice of Japanese Americana recorded at home with a back-to-basics approach akin to Music from Big Pink or McCartney. While his former band helped pave the way for the rise of “city pop” that reflected upon urban themes and city life, Hosono took a 180 degree turn towards the countryside for his highly-regarded first solo album. Located an hour from Tokyo in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture, the actual Hosono House was one of several American-style houses originally built for the families of troops stationed at the nearby Johnson Air Base, active during the post-war occupation years. By the early ‘70s this small community had become a hub for creative types looking for a break from Tokyo’s hustle and bustle – and cheaper rent. For Hosono, this was as close as he could get to living in America without leaving his home country. With rooms filled to the edges with recording gear, the house became a live-in studio for Hosono and his crack band – soon to become known as the in-demand session group Tin Pan Alley. The songs on Hosono House display the breadth of Hosono’s talents, from the hushed acoustic folk of “Rock-A-Bye My Baby” and the country twang of “Boku Wa Chotto” to the New Orleans funk of “Fuyu Koe” and the unexpected breakbeats in “Bara To Yajuu.” Lauded by artists such as Jim O’Rourke and Devendra Banhart, Hosono House remains a touchstone of the early phase of Hosono’s career.Hosono’s solo career would take many twists and turns from this point forward, with forays into exotica, electronic, ambient, and techno, culminating in the massive success of techno pop group Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO), who made their debut in 1978. Admired by artists ranging from Van Dyke Parks to Mac DeMarco, Hosono continues to forge ahead as he heads into his fifth decade as a musician. With the re-release of his key albums for the first time outside of Japan, his genius will be discovered by a whole new generation of fans around the world.

Von seinem ersten Solo-Album, Forever Everlasting, unter der Schirmherrschaft von Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate, als er gerade aus denTeenagerjahren raus war, bis zu dem Erfolg “Jump Around” mit House Of Pain, zum Multi-Platin-Album “Whitey Ford Sings The Blues” (mitdem genre-übergreifenden Hit “What It’s Like”) und seiner Grammy-prämierten Leistung auf Carlos Santana’s “Supernatural” (“Put Your LightsOn”), hat Everlast die Kritiker schon immer widerlegt. Auf diesem Weg schmiedete er eine richtungsweisende Verbindung aus Hip-Hop, Rock,Folk, Funk und RnB, welche von Kid Rock und Colt Ford bis hin zu Yelawolf, JellyRoll und Lil Wyte nahezu jeden beeinflusste. Auch wenn erselbst zu bescheiden ist, das zuzugeben.Everlast’s neuestes Album, “Whitey Ford’s House Of Pain”, ist sein siebter Solo-Output und die erste LP seit “Songs Of The Ungrateful Living” in2011 (“The Life Acoustic” aus 2013 enthielt neu aufgenommene Stücke mit Gitarre, welche bereits vorher veröffentlicht waren). Die 12 neuenTracks zeigen all diese vielseitigen stilistischen Seiten aus Everlast’s nun fast 30-jähriger Karriere.

Audiophile reissue, lacquered directly from Axelrod’s original EQ’ed mastertapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster, housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket“Songs of Experience was supposed to have a different feel than Song of Innocence. You see,music is a great outlet. And regardless of what the titles say, and as close as I wanted it to be toWilliam Blake, what was going on in my life took precedence.” – David AxelrodSongs of Experience is visionary composer/arranger/producer David Axelrod’s second album; it wasrecorded after the death of his beloved son Scott. Experience is an ominous affair, an album concerned withmortality and spirituality – the solitary, pastoral musings of William Blake set to the urban bombast of a fullLos Angeles orchestra, with Wrecking Crew vets grounding the proceedings with dark funk.This is the next Now-Again issue in a series of reissues centered around Axelrod’s Capitol Trilogy – Song ofInnocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot – which will see release through 2018. Contains oversized,28 page booklet that delves into Axelrod’s incredible life and music, replete with never before publishedphotos and an interview with Axelrod by Eothen Alapatt and Wax Poetics’ Brian Digenti.“There are very few people who see the Grand Picture of the Universe and understand theNothingness that it all comes from. There are even fewer who can express these ideas throughmusic - David could do it all.” – T-Ray

Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
A stunning survey of the 1970s heyday of this great Japanese singer and countercultural icon. Deep-indigo, dead-of-night enka, folk and blues, inhaling Billie Holiday and Nina Simone down to the bone. A traditional waltz abuts Nico-style incantation; defamiliarised versions of Oscar Brown Jr and Bessie Smith collide with big-band experiments alongside Shuji Terayama; a sitar-led psychedelic wig-out runs into a killer excursion in modal, spiritual jazz. Existentialism and noir, mystery and allure, hurt and hauteur. With excellent notes by Alan Cummings and the fabulous photographs of Hitoshi Jin Tamura. Hotly recommended.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
If Only There Was A River is the first full-length studio album from Anna St. Louis. The songwriter, who originally hails from Kansas City, began writing songs after moving to Los Angeles five years ago and has previously released a cassette of recordings on Woodsist / Mare Records, appropriately titled First Songs. The tape received notice from NPR: All Songs Considered, Pitchfork, and Stereogum.On her proper debut, St. Louis spreads her wings and expands on the promise hinted at on First Songs. To achieve that end, she enlisted Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Kevin Morby to produce the album, which was engineered by Thomas in his home in Mount Washington, LA. The collection of eleven songs also features Justin Sullivan (Night Shop) on drums and multi-instrumentalist Oliver Hill (Pavo Pavo). While hints of influences like Loretta Lynn, John Fahey and Townes Van Zandt peek out of the corners of the songs, this album is not a nostalgic affair. Rather it marks the emergence of an artist fully coming into their own.

Carola Baer
The Story Of Valerie
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Concentric Circles)
24,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
First up is Carola Baer's The Story of Valery, which is comprised of music from a one-off demo cassette found in a thrift store. Beautiful personal & emotionally resonant drum computer mantras in the key of Dead Can Dance, The Cocteau Twins and classic 4AD. The discovery of a cassette of Carola Baer's early 90s private home recordings was like finding a needle in a haystack. Made as a one-off mixtape of newly recorded songs, and given to a long-sinceforgotten recipient, this cassette was found in 2017 at a Goodwill "bins" location in Portland, Oregon. These chaotic, by-the-pound thrift stores contain 1000's of unsorted items in constant flux, which are only available for the public to buy for a limited time before they are discarded. The prospect that this obscure relic would be rescued from its untimely fate is nothing short of a miracle. As this tape was the only one in existence, with no back up versions of many of the songs, it's more than likely that thismusic would have been lost forever.The Story of Valerie is made up of songs culled from that cassette, with a few additional tracks from the time, and is the first time Carola Baer's solo material has been heard by the public. The intense emotion of the music is brought upon by the primary themes of the album: the cruelty of humanity, isolated life as a British immigrant in the US, and the pain of doomed relationships. Despite being inspired by classic 4AD acts like Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins, Baer's home recordings have a sound and style that is uniquely her own. Many of the tracks feel like musical exorcisms, with Baer's spine tingling voice soaring above minimal arrangements for Yamaha DX-7 and Casio CZ-101 synthesizers. Like finding a stranger’s diary, the listener is granted access to music that is emotionallyraw and deeply personal.

Two raw and unmixed songs from Wind’s Poem were transferred from the original analog tape masters into the ProTools HDX system at Owl Lodge. The studio is situated in the woods near Olympia, WA and is the headquarters of Wolves in the Throne Room. A single vocal track from “Lost Wisdom" was layered with newly recorded digital synths and a heavy bass from a vintage Korg MS-20. Wisps of the original organ and guitar appear in a heavily processed form. “Mouth of Sky” was created using techniques inspired by Lee “Scratch” Perry. In this case, the original tracks were routed to a variety of analog and digital FX units via the faders on the studio’s Harrison PP1 console. The mix was performed in real time.

Saz Power
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ironhand)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
"Saz Power" features a special sound: the saz, acoustic and electric. This lute instrument is the most commonly used folk instrument in Turkey. It is connected both to Ottoman classical music—the centuries-old tradition of the wandering bards of Aşıks—and to the psychedelic Anatolian rock of the 1970s. Through archaeological excavations of mounds in Anatolia, the saz can be traced back to an age before the Common Era.And yet the saz is an international as well as a specifically Turkish instrument. It has gained a wider popularity due to its unique sound and its unique history, especially with the renewed interest in Anatolian rock music that has been growing for a decade now, and the new wave of psychedelic music worldwide. This global appeal is reflected on the album by the choice of artists: one half is played by musicians from Turkey, the other by players from Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, and Israel.The concept for this album was conceived by musician Demir Kerem Atay (aka Elektro Hafız) and developed by the two label directors Cem Şeftalicioğlu and Ercan Demirel. It was to showcase different models of the saz (acoustic, electric) and saz-related instruments (like the Buzuq and Cümbüş), but also different styles, different ways to play the saz through different countries, to offer a full spectrum of the music that can be produced with it.This concept was immediately embraced by all the musicians asked to participate in the album. Here they could show their love for the instrument—and indeed they all did so. The arrangements combine the traditional or the electric saz with the diverse sounds and vibrations of psychedelic guitars, basses, organs, synths, drums, and percussion. The tunes are based on different styles of Anatolian folk music or are contemporary compositions written by the artists.As a result, the music belongs partly to a new generation of Turkish folk music and Anatolian rock—always updating the living tradition of these styles—and partly to a fresh blend of Anatolian rock with other styles like electronic music or the soundtrack to a psychedelic Western. Introducing us to a wide range of saz instruments and ways of playing them, this album goes straight to the heart, with all the yearning gentleness and tremendous power the saz can offer.Holger Lund

Ultra rare, sought after French acid folk psychedelic masterpiece, Long Orme is the work of singer-guitarist-songwriter Yves Fajnberg, his girlfriend singer Anne Marie Butel plus a full cohort of musician friends. The LP was laid down to a 2 track Revox Reel To Reel recorder between late 1974 and early 1975 and originally released in 1975 by Sonart Disques to such a limited run that an original copy sells nowadays for no less than 400 euros.Together with Yves Chauvet, Fajnberg had worked on Dominique Droin’s Wave On LP issued by Le Kiosque d’Orphée, all done on a small home studio set by Chauvet. They used the same facilities, mainly two 2-track Revox reel-to-reel magnetophones and an 8-track mixer, to produce a delightful peace of poetry and acoustic guitar acid folk sounds which will appeal to fans of artists such as Season, Jeff, Beautiful Losers, Yves, Serge & Victor, Manu Lannhuel, Denis, Jean Yves Tourbin, a.o.

Genre:Rock / Indie
The Arab world back in the 70s and 80s gave us quite a few very interesting rock and pop acts. Ahmed Fakroun from Libya was one of them. Here we have his 1983 album whose title means 'Words Of Love' in English. And in fact his kind of ethno pop seems to go deeper than just to the charts where a song like 'Soleil! Soleil!' - a typical yet outstanding synthie pop/new wave anthem that would have gone well with David Bowie or Duran Duran in the early '80s - definitely would have belonged. Other tunes are more Oriental with great string arrangements and those mystical melodies only Arab and Oriental music provides. This is one of the lost gems of '80s pop music which fetches prices up to 500,00 Euros for a nearly mint copy today. So for fans of cool '80s pop with a memorable edge are now able to grab a copy of this forgotten jewel.

“Hive Mind Records present a 2LP compilation of songs by Moulay Ahmed El Hassani, a master of modern Moroccan music, who updates traditional folk forms with drum machines, autotune and incredible psychedelic guitar.Moulay Ahmed El Hassani is practically unknown outside of his home country of Morocco where he's released over 50 albums on cassette and CD over the past 30 years, however Hive Mind Records seek to remedy that situation with the release of this compilation featuring songs originally released on Ahmed's own label, Sawt el Hassani, between 2006 and 2014.Ahmed writes his own songs, plays all instruments himself, records and self produces at his home studio in Beni Mellal. His unique sound takes influence from a variety of Moroccan folk forms, particularly the Izlan and Ahidous styles of the Amazigh people of the mid-Atlas region. Ahmed has blended these styles with the rai and chaabi that were popular across the country through his youth. The resulting sound is like a twenty-first century folk music for a people caught somewhere between a vision of their own idealised pastoral past and a turbo charged, technologically driven urban future. Ahmed has embraced new musical technologies and his songs are made up of complex, polyrhythmic drum machine patterns, subtle loops, washes of new age synth, heavily autotuned male and female duet vocals, and his signature psychedelic microtonal guitar playing. His songs are sometimes gentle and melancholic, and sometimes more upbeat, but always deeply lyrical and melodic, and all feature lyrics in Amazigh and Arabic that deal with social issues and universal themes of love and loss.There's really very little that can be said in a press release to can prepare you for the sound of Moulay Ahmed ElHassani's music, other than that you're unlikely to have heard anything quite like it before.”

Erst kürzlich räumte er den Preis in derKategorie "Best Original Music Score" beim New Renaissance Film Festival in Amsterdam ab. Auf derRückseite der limitierten 10‘‘ findet sich eine elektronische Neuinterpretation mit dem Titel "Techno ForLemurs". Remix trifft es in diesem Fall nicht wirklich, schließlich ist keine einzige Spur vom Original in dieserVersion zu hören. "Techno For Lemurs" ist vielmehr eine Hommage an die beiden Protagonisten desAnimationsfilms, die Lemure Bernard und Elba, und zugleich Brodericks allererster Abstecher in RichtungTechno. Der verspielte Track basiert auf den Kernmotiven des Scores, die er hier mit elektronischen Mittelnaufgreift.

Der Chicagoer Experimentalist Ryley Walker interpretiert das offiziell nie veröffentlichte 2001er-Album ,The Lillywhite Sessions" der Dave Matthews Band für eine neue Ära um. Walker liefert mit seiner Neubearbeitung des Materials eine kraftvolle und innige Meditation über die Drehungen und Wendungen einermusikalischen Reise durch ein Leben voller enthusiastischer und neugieriger Zuhörer. Seiner reflektierten Performance ist es zu verdanken, dass die Dave Matthews Band im aktuellen Pop Zeitgeist langsam aber stetig einer Neubewertung unterzogen wird. Zusammen mit seinen Mitstreitern Andrew Scott Youngund Ryan Jewell verwandelt Walker den eher albernen Opner ,Busted Stuff" aus Matthews ,The Lillywhite Sessions" in seiner Version in einen lebhaften und jazzig angehauchten Post-Rock, der an die alten Chicagoer Helden The Sea & Cake bzw. Jim O'Rourkes goldene Drag City Tage erinnert. Aus einer Wand derVerzerrung auftauchend, erklingt "Diggin' a Ditch" mit einem Power-Trio-Schlagzeug à la Dinosaur Jr. und schüttelt existenzielles Unbehagen ab, wie etwa Jungs in ihren Zwanzigern, die Rock-Songs in der Garage schreiben. Als Kind in den Vororten des Chicagoer Rust Belts aufgewachsen, also weitabseits von kulturellen Hochburgen, lehrte ihn dort die Dave Matthews Band, wie man Musik spielt und liebt. Walkers Version von "Grace is Gone" ist ein Beweis für diese Liebe, die ihn zumMusiker gemacht hat. Walker ist mit den ,Lillywhite Sessions" durch eine Tür gegangen, die vor langer Zeit von der Dave Matthews Band aufgestoßen wurde, um eine Welt voller musikalischer Möglichkeiten dahinter zu finden. Mit ,The Lillywhite Sessions" hat er wiederum seine eigene geschaffen.

Oyiwane
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Sahel Sounds)
20,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sweet and sublime school recordings from elementary school group in Northern Niger fromthe 1980s. All-girl group accompanied by their instructor on the acoustic guitar, recallingGuinean folk and early Ali Farka Touré. Troupe École Tudu takes their name from a smallneighborhood of Agadez, Niger. In 1985, the city hosted a musical competition between variousschools. École Tudu, lacking a choir, sought out a young Tuareg guitarist Kader "Barmo" Balla tocreate a new style of music. The guitar was new to Niger and Barmo was new to the guitar,having only played for a few years. His notes were minimal and stripped down melodiesmirroring the vocals, a technique common in Malian and Guinean folk music. To makesomething uniquely Saharan, they modeled their percussion on the tende, the traditional Tuareggoatskin drum and rhythm. Their debut composition titled "Oyiwane" ("Greetings to Everyone") won first prize at the competition and garnered the attention of the Niger state. The following year they were invited into the studio to record an album, released on the small boutique label Hasada (known for their seminal work with Mamman Sani Abdoulaye). The compositions mixed traditional folksongs with original creations, but the lyrical content was political. At a time of massive rural migration, drought, and exodus, their songs were a message to the modern nomads, emphasizing traditional culture while stressing the importance of education, particularly for young women. The group continued to win accolades for their music throughout Niger. Following their success, a number of other school groups created similar guitar/vocal folklore groups. This style of music became popular throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s and led to the creation of the today's female music troupes of Niger. Restored and remastered for the first time outside of Niger, Troupe École Tudu's Oyiwane is available on a limited vinyl pressing of 500, accompanied with liner notes and song translations from Kader "Barmo" Balla.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Jackson C. Frank’s eponymous album is the embodiment of folk legend. Issued in late 1965 on the UK Columbia label, it was for many years more famous for its producer (Paul Simon) and the musicians who would go on to cover its songs (Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Sandy Denny) than for the hauntingly beautiful music contained inside. Frank’s backstory certainly adds to the legacy: born in Buffalo, New York, he used the settlement from a childhood accident to sail to London where he quickly became a fixture of the bustling folk scene. Performing a mix of blues standards and originals, he met fellow ex-pat Paul Simon who would put up the money to record Frank’s only LP. For such a sparsely recorded work, Jackson C. Frank covers a lot of ground. From the rugged, world-weary opener “Blues Run The Game” to the stunning melancholy of “Milk And Honey,” Frank’s nimble acoustic guitar and passionate howls are all that is needed to power such authentic songwriting. Captured in a single-day session, these ten tracks are stark, gritty and seemingly out-of-place with time. There may be no ‘60s folk record that is simultaneously as rare and influential as Jackson C. Frank’s self-titled debut.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Few albums define a genre as succinctly as Simon Finn’s Pass The Distance does for psychedelic folk. Not even landmark recordings by Pearls Before Swine or Skip Spence can stand up to the sheer madness of Finn’s sole LP, originally released in 1970. After moving to London in 1967, Finn busked around town for a couple years before entering Camden’s Chalk Farm Studios, best known for producing a string of reggae hits. Pass The Distance, however, would become more than a solo-acoustic project. Backed by free-improvisation innovators David Toop and Paul Burwell, Finn’s dark, personal songs unravel lysergically over 40 minutes. Toop’s sinewy electric guitar and Burwell’s broad percussive palette lift up Finn’s ardent strumming and snarling vocals, making this one wild ride in catharsis, introspection and raw merriment. As Finn tells journalist Dave Segal in an interview for this vinyl reissue, “The songs were about alienation and loneliness. ‘Jerusalem’ came to me in one shot. I wrote it on mescaline and was playing it over and over and one of my flatmates wrote it down.” Pass The Distance remains a “cult record” in the best sense of the term, possessing a hypnotic beauty all its own.

Saigon Supersound Continues… to present more interesting tunes of a musical era that has long been obscured. With the well-received Volume 1, we are very delighted to dig deeper and share with you the beautiful music of a short but significant period in Vietnam‘s history.Much like the country itself, the music of Vietnam has endured many twists. As the result of the Geneva Accords in 1954, Vietnam was divided into two. From the North, the Nationalist forces fought to reunite Vietnam as a Communist State, while the American troops backed the government of the South. This caused a mass migration of Northerners to the South, which includes many Tân Nhạc (Modern Music) singers and songwriters. Often characterized by its emotive, poetic and prolific personality, Tân Nhạc continued to freely develop in the South and progressively vacating from the influences of its main inspiration, French music. In the North, the Resistance music, or the so-called Nhạc Đỏ (Red Music), which promoted socialism, patriotism and anti-capitalism was the only genre allowed on national radio. Tân Nhạc was something new to the South Vietnamese repertoire. Between 1954–1960, the theme of hometown (quê hương) was a main inspiration for many songwriters such as Hoàng Thi Thơ, Lam Phương and Nguyễn Hữu Thiết. The 9th title of the compilation, “Thôn Trăng Mở Hội Trăng Tròn” showcases a variety of images that were often described in this genre: the harvest moon, playful children, old mother…Every recording made in this era is then an organic combination of human experiences, communications and uniqueness. In 1965, the first American troop landed in Vietnam, bringing with them the musical influences of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley… The Vietnamese people quickly integrated it into the repertoire with hope to further diversify the music of Vietnam. Constantly changing and learning from different cultures, the modern music of Vietnam cuts a window into the soul of a Vietnamese person and the country’s history as a whole. With that, we hope that Saigon Supersound Volume 2 would take you on a trip back to the unique atmosphere of Saigon through the many different palettes of music that this beautiful place offers.

Er entstaubte den Austropop und das Wiener Lied und diente als Vorbild für Künstler wie Voodoo Jürdens, Wanda und anderen Neo Austropopper. Der Nino aus Wien feiert mit seiner neuen Platte sein 10-jähriges Jubiläum. Das selbstbetitelte Album und bisher bestes wurde mit Wanda-Produzent Paul Gallister aufgenommen.

Before King Crimson, there was Giles, Giles & Fripp. Robert Fripp, before he went on to become “one of the greatest guitar players of all-time,” was just a guy with a guitar who responded to an advertisement by brothers Michael and Peter Giles looking for a singing keyboard player. The three soon formed a band and moved to Brondesbury Road, London. During this time, they recorded many demos in their flat, with a two-track Revox reel to reel recorder, which was modified to allow overdubs.This album, originally compiled in 2001, is taken from the miles of Brondesbury Road tape recorded in 1968, a chance for Crimson fans to hear where it all began.

Genre:Rock / Indie
The album comes ina Japanese tip-on gatefold sleeve. When Michaela Meise performed at WestGermany at Kottbusser Tor in Berlin-Kreuzberg on March 20, 2015, accompanying herself on the accordion, I was perplexed. I knew her first album from 2010, which was about hymns (»Preis dem Todesüberwinder«, originally released on Clouds Hill, available as a download and stream through my label from July 2018 on), but what she was playing weren’t spiritual songs?! I wanted to put this music out on my label: the songs sounded sad, aloof and wistful but also proud, determined and unerring. The album title »I am Greek« is a tribute to Melina Mercouri's album »Je Suis Grecque!«, which was released in 1971 when Mercouri was deprived of citizenship by the Greek military junta. Mercouri lived – like Mikis Theodorakis and many other cultural workers – in exile. Meise's album is dedicated to the chanson scene of post-war Europe, whose songs were popularly folksy, but also political. Some talk about the experience of war, the Shoah and labor migration. Michaela Meise has translated the Greek, French and Romanian songs into German (with the help of Aliki Marini and Carmen Gheorghe) so that the lyrics are understandable to a German audience, a gesture that was also common in the European chanson scene. More than half of the songs are by Mikis Theodorakis. He knows the translations and new recordings, gave his blessing and just noted a wrong tone ... The other pieces on the album are by the French artists Barbara and George Moustaki and the German musician Alexandra. There is also a Romanian folk song. The album was recorded by Michaela Meise together with members of the group Isolation Berlin as well as the guest singers Carmen Gheorge and Dirk von Lowtzow (Tocotronic). The producer was David Specht (Isolation Berlin).

Not long after recording her 10th album, Ruins, Liz Harris traveled to Wyoming to work on art and record music. She found herself drawn towards the pairing of skeletal piano phrasing with spare, rich bursts of vocal harmony. From Liz Harris: Grid Of Points is a set of songs for piano and voice. I wrote these songs over a week and a half; they stopped abruptly when I was interrupted by a high fever. Though brief, it is complete. The intimacy and abbreviation of this music allude to an essence that the songs lyrics speak more directly of. The space left after matter has departed, a stage after the characters have gone, the hollow of some central column, missing.

It's rare that a certain sound is entirely an artist's own. Although undeniably a stew of impeccable influences – from blues to folk to Latin to dusty funk, soul and hip-hop – one cannot hear a Tommy Guerrero song without immediately recognizing it as his - and his only.The cult skater from San Francisco is globally renowned as one of the original members of the legendary ""Bones Brigade"" team. And as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, his laid-back soul is beloved by all who've basked in its blissful glow.There's something elemental about this music that really stirs the soul. Strikingly beautiful and instantly addictive, it's a kind of funk-fuelled, melody-driven, groove-based magic. There's a serenity and heart in the playing that radiates warmth and splendour, as if crafted for endless sunsets. His albums that surfaced on Mo Wax at the turn of the century have been treasured since their release and it's two of his most vital LPs that we're honored to reintroduce.The originals were quietly pressed on to a single piece of vinyl so we've worked closely with Tommy this year to bring you these fresh, limited editions. They have been lovingly remastered, cut nice and loud on to heavyweight double vinyl and presented in deluxe gatefold jackets.Soul Food Taqueria continued Guerrero's guitar soul but represented a step forward with its polished production and greater complexity of instrumentation. Denied the promotion it deserved upon release, it flew under the radar. It is now the most wanted record of his wondrous back catalogue.Guerrero's atmospheric touch and subtle guitar provide lush, glimmering pieces of musical texture. Within his spacious compositions, uniquely arranged instruments flourish alongside each other to create a languid soundtrack for halcyon days.As ever, the diversity on display is beguiling. From bossa nova, samba and cumbia rhythms to understated folk, funk and soul grooves, this is another exotic set of mellow gold; perfectly represented by ESPO's memorable artwork. Furthermore, the title's hybridity reflects the intoxicating sweep of stylistic flavours served up, reminding us that, however tricky it is to categorise Guerrero's special blend, it's always a pleasure to indulge in something so creative and adventurous.Dubby, bass-heavy instrumentals give way to moody folk-soul – witness ""It Gets Heavy"", featuring melancholic vocals from Gresham Taylor – whilst ""Thank You MK"" is a gentle ode to the tropics, featuring ethereal instrumentation, bright bass and warm, jazzy guitars. The second half in particular contains a number of stunning ambient tracks – check ""Lost Unfound"", ""Another Brother Gone"" and ""Broken Blood"" - built around minimalist, laid-back grooves and detailed guitar orchestrations which wouldn't be out of place on the latest Jonny Nash release.Guerrero closes this flawless set with a moment of true beauty. Restrained and graceful, ""Falling Awake"" is a pared back piece containing meditative guitar melodies set against melancholic piano arrangements. It brings proceedings to the most peaceful close. Seductively good, it reminds you just how great simplicity can sound.

Along with other representatives such as Orhan Gencebay, Özer Senay, Hakki Bulut and Ferdi Tayfur, Müslüm Gürses is known as a singer who can interpret songs from almost every genre.Mutlu Ol Yeter is an album of eclectic sounds derived from the Turkish, Arabic and other middle eastern sounds with the usage of harmonization techniques of western world. On the other hand these harmonization techniques are also interpreted in an eclectic approach of musicians who have roots in both eastern and western music. Farfisa and Hammond sounds, strange drum brakes and a gloomy but a cheesy atmosphere is waiting for you in this eclectic musical journey. After the reissues of Turkish psychedelic music for almost 2 decades, this LP will be an experience to witness the experiments in Turkey from the eastern rooted eclectic side.

A groovy and trippy double-sided 7-inch by Outernational pop-group Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek! After the melancholic, heart-melting Nem Kaldı, the quintet delivers a light upbeat piece, Oy Oy Emine, a traditional Turkish song interpreted in the spirit of the group: the Bağlama (Turkish lute) introduces the melody before a warm and dynamic rhythm section kicks in, over which Derya's superb voice jousts with wah-wah guitars and acid synthesizers. Oy Oy Emine is a seduction song anyone in Turkey can sing along to, about a man's mad love for a beautiful woman called Emine. Although many versions have been recorded, not many pop/rock groups have attempted to interpret it (one exception being Elektro Dschungel in the late 80's) and Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek offer a fresh, subtle arrangement that suits their 70's psychedelic sound. Talking psychedelia, Kürk on side B brings us deeper in the band's search for slow, groovy floor-movers with stretched basslines and trippy melodies. The East-West connection Turkish bands had with Western psych-rock back in the day is just as real today with Grup Şimşek's various influences, its musicians originating from Turkey, England, France, Italy and Germany. With Kürk's folky theme and hairy groove, DeryaYıldırım & Grup Şimşek prove once again that they are capable of writing original material that gives even more spirit and authenticity to their music. The band is currently working on a full-length album, due in May 2019. This 2-track single will keep your home stereo or your DJ deck busy in the meantime, and will surely reveal a little of what Derya Yıldırım and her folks are up to! creditsreleases December 14, 2018 Derya Yıldırım: vocals, saz Greta Eacott: drums, percussion Antonin Voyant: guitar, flute Andrea Piro: bass Graham Mushnik: organ, synth, percussion Recorded and mixed by Antonin Voyant & Graham Mushnik at Larsen & Catapulte Studios, France, 2017 Master by Tim Stollenwerk Artwork by Félix Vincent Released hand in hand with respect & mutual love with Catapulte Records

Uneven Paths: Deviant Pop From Europe, 1980-1991' is compiled by record connoisseur Raphael Top-Secret and label man Jamie Tiller that brings together twenty one tracks from across the continent; exploring the more unusual and unexpected sides of pop music produced during that period. Drawing material from cult experimental artists alongside one-off independent musical projects rescued from the fringes, ’Uneven Paths’ focuses on a selection of tracks that go beyond the confines of mainstream pop music but which also transcend expectations of much of the ’experimental’ music of the time. This is music with one foot in the avant-garde and another foot firmly rooted within the sensibilities of Pop; where Jazz musicians detour into Synth-Pop, Punk bands break into Boogie jams, and student doctors jam out on odd melodies with synthesizers and drum machines during their night shifts.

For the first time after the 1987 Art Metropole’s release, the legendary The Last LP by Michael Snow is now available on vinyl! The album is an extraordinary collection of tracks “of rare music derived from threatened, obsolete, or now-extinct cultures from around the world” that although the claiming of being field recordings of ancient musical experiences, are in fact pieces played, conceived and recorded by the artist himself. As it was for “Music For Piano” (CY999), with this issue the Canadian artist further developed his conceptual investigation around the object-LP where the single elements (the record, the music, the text and the jacket) are so indissolubly intertwined to create what the artist calls a “sonics-sculpture-text”. Partly motivated by the announced obsolescence of the vinyl format, The Last LP is also a critical reflection on the impact of new technologies on the relationship between played and recorded music. Song Cycle Records is honoured to announce the release of this album in a limited edition reprint on vinyl, remastered sound from the original tapes and with a faithful reproduction of the original artwork.

Though frequently overshadowed by his contemporary and Takoma Records labelmate John Fahey,the compositions and performances of Daniel R. Robinson Jr., best known by the stage name RobbieBasho, were integral in the development of the American primitive guitar style. Along with Fahey, andsongwriter/composers such as Max Ochs, Leo Kottke, and others, Basho helped bring to the massesthe distinct form of guitar finger-picking, which blended folk and country-blues with neo-classicalcomposition techniques. Unlike his contemporaries, Basho went a step further by incorporatingunorthodox open tunings on his 12-string guitar, as well as elements of Indian classical music,inspired by the sarod-playing of his mentor Ali Akbar Khan.Unfortunately Robbie Basho passed on in relative obscurity at the early age of 45 due to a fatalstroke, so he was never able to witness the extent of his influence. Nonetheless his legacy lives onin the works of American primitive guitar revivalists like James Blackshaw and Glenn Jones, aswell as indie folk units like Currituck County or Six Organs of Admittance. All of Basho'ssignature stylistic elements are on full display on his 1969 album Venus In Cancer, which added ontohis dextrous, steel-string finger-picking, additional cues from raga, flamenco, Appalachian folk,and even foresaw the arrival of new age music. A mystical and astrologically-inspired collection ofguitar improvisation, one which clocks in at nearly 50 minutes, and a perfect representation ofBasho’s visionary American folk brilliance.

Alle Jahre wieder kommt das Christuskind.

Er hat 17 Grammys gewonnen und ist der einzige Künstler, der bereits drei Mal in die Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame aufgenommen wurde. Nun veröffentlicht Eric Clapton sein erstes Weihnachtsalbum "Happy Xmas". Dafür hat er sich sowohl die bekanntesten Weihnachtssongs als auch weniger bekannte ausgesucht und mit "For Love On Christmas Day" auch einen eigenen geschrieben. Auch das Albumcover wurde von Clapton selbstillustriert. "Happy Xmas" ist der Versuch, ein vom Blues beeinflusstes Weihnachtsalbum zu kreieren, was vor allem auf Songs wie "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" zu hören ist. Um den erwünschten Effekt zu erreichen, war Eric Clapton auch an der Produktion des Albums mit beteiligt. "Happy Xmas" erscheint physisch als CD und Doppelvinyl mit jeweils 14 Tracks

Art is a matter of different phases and influence. The artists' core reaches out like heat waves. And very rarely do these artists' core merge like Brigitte Fontaine and Arseki Belkacem have. Their Saravah Era lasted ten years (1969 to 1979), ten years of "folle sagesse" (crazy wisdom), above all genres and song limitation."Le plaisir secret que donne une chanson, dessin à la craie sur le mur de tes sons" (the personal delight within song, a chalk drawing on your wall of sounds) whispers Areski, right after Brigitte's voice on the penultimate song of the double album "Vous et nous". Released in 1977, this free flowing record contains 33 songs, it's their 6th album after "Comme à la radio", "Brigitte 4", "Je ne connais pas cet homme", "L'incendie" and "Le bonheur", and it continues to spread the wide and generous spectrum of the couple fully blossoming talent. Electronic experiments, North African trance, refined acoustics and medieval drones gracefully blend with the acid and candid tongues of the singers, surprising us each step along the way. The making of this record was also full of twists and turns. It started out as a solo effort by Areski at Jean-Pierre Chambard's studio. Little by little, as Areski was filling tapes with poems and improvised skits, Brigitte would sneak into the studio at nightfall, adding her voice here and there, her whispers then became screams, giving fuel to the fire in a total blaze, a surreal blaze. The solitary work ("je") thrived to become us ("nous") and you ("vous") ...Benjamin Barouh, June 2018

“What was old is new again”… The old adage is so tired that nobody takes its proper measure: all people hear is the word “old”, when the important one is “new”. Making new things out of old things is an act of alchemy. The proof is in this fifth album – no rest for the wicked of Perpignan – which is blown right open here and there by a few very contemporary guests. After the opener, ‘Ouverture’, with its almost surf-like guitars, comes ‘Le Premier Jour’, where Lionel Limiñana talks about his rock baptism with the punks, the mods, the skinheads and the Lambrettas of his youth in the South of France. What comes just after is the seismic shock of ‘Istanbul is Sleepy’: the Imprimatur of Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre is simply enormous. Then comes Emmanuelles Seigner’s super sexy tornado on the title track; and ‘Dimanche’ follows, with Bertrand Belin. Lionel sees him as a “French Nick Cave who writes songs that resemble films.”. ‘The Gift’ features Peter Hook who scrapes his bass guitar again here; obviously a song reminiscent of an early period New Order. Finally, the Limiñanas on their own send out an instrumental cavalcade with a furious beat, like a Kraut Morricone, ‘Motorizzati Marie’ followed by ‘Pink Flamingos’, introduced with psych rock pads played backwards forming a vaporous song bathed in acoustic arpeggios. A respite in the album…

Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
It's rare that a certain sound is entirely an artist's own. Although undeniably a stew of impeccable influences – from blues to folk to Latin to dusty funk, soul and hip-hop – one cannot hear a Tommy Guerrero song without immediately recognizing it as his - and his only.The cult skater from San Francisco is globally renowned as one of the original members of the legendary ""Bones Brigade"" team. And as an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, his laid-back soul is beloved by all who've basked in its blissful glow.There's something elemental about this music that really stirs the soul. Strikingly beautiful and instantly addictive, it's a kind of funk-fuelled, melody-driven, groove-based magic. There's a serenity and heart in the playing that radiates warmth and splendour, as if crafted for endless sunsets. His albums that surfaced on Mo Wax at the turn of the century have been treasured since their release and it's two of his most vital LPs that we're honoured to reintroduce.The originals were quietly pressed on to a single piece of vinyl so we've worked closely with Tommy this year to bring you these fresh, limited editions. They have been lovingly remastered, cut nice and loud on to heavyweight double vinyl and presented in deluxe gatefold jackets.A Little Bit Of Somethin' is a quietly majestic gem. Brimming with Guerrero's horizontal ""loose grooves"", these brief but innovative instrumentals demonstrate a rich variety and, as such, comprise an LP that is aptly titled. An enchanting start-to-finish listen, it was instantly regarded as essential upon release via Mo Wax in 2000. It has aged remarkably well. Throughout this inspired collection, simplicity is key. In deploying it, Guerrero presents a beautifully crafted melodic soundscape. The distinctive, mellifluous approach of his guitar style, blending Brazilian, Cuban, Mexican, soul and jazz motifs, is at once startlingly new and tantalisingly familiar. Set against unrushed percussion, the music releases a crystal clear stream of healing frequencies to create a fragile, hypnotic atmosphere. Each track clocks in at around three minutes and, with a lack of studio polish or commitment to traditional song structure, it's a wonder how this enigmatic record demands your attention. However, through its gentle dynamism and impressive playing, it does just that. Whilst resolutely low-key, this lo-fi aesthetic feels genuinely organic and remarkably personal; its powerful intimacy truly connects. It's what makes this album so beloved of those lucky enough to be already familiar with it. From Margaret Kilgallen's truly iconic cover artwork to the music contained within, it's all brilliantly effortless.Guerrero's musical ideas are consistently compelling throughout, making it impossible to select highlights. The album's laconic drift touches upon jazz-fusion workouts and slow-mo hip-hop drums, Tortoise-style experimental post-rock and cinematic sound textures. It's at once hazy, light and bouncy yet sombre and bluesy. The Latin soul of El Chicano blends with the breezy jazz of Grant Green. By employing guitars and drum machines to create a stripped down rhythmic tapestry of spellbinding, addictive songs, there are even traces of The Durutti Column. A little bit of country, a little bit of rock & roll. A Little Bit Of Somethin', indeed.

Eden's Island 2017 Edition
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Captain High)
19,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
This 2017 edition includes bonus tracks.It is 1960, Rock’n’Roll has just lost a couple of its protagonists during this and the previous year, the time of the great balladeers has just begun but soon will run out due to the new and exciting beat invasion. In US mainstream the tiki culture has reached a certain peak and is about to collapse but still goes strong and with it comes the so called “exotica” music, a crossover between smooth jazz and swing, Latin grooves, haunting melodies that are rooted in the folkloristic sounds from different parts of this world plus weird sound effects that often create a spooky jungle or dreamy island beach atmosphere. It can even bend your mind that far you would see palm trees growing out of your speakers and witness monkeys and parrots having fun in your room. Eden Ahbez, born in 1908, passed in 1995, a man living an even more consistent dropout and hippie lifestyle way before the movement was born in the mid 60s, a beat poet and composer who wrote the hit tune “Nature boy” that gave Nat King Cole his first big success in 1947, approaches the field of exotica music from a different point of view creating an epic concept album about an utopian society living in peace and harmony on an island far away from the modern western world as we know it. And indeed we find many trademarks of the prototypical exotica music beginning with this relaxed groove combining easy listening swing and Latin patterns, peaceful, dreamy and even transcendental vocal melodies, tinges of folk music from around the world including powerful dances and a whole color palette of mind expanding sounds giving the whole music an even greater depth and width. The latter being created entirely with real instruments such as Eden Ahbez' wood-flute. Some tunes are rather gentle and relaxed with the lyrics being narrated which adds much to the epic feel of the album. Since this is a really unique effort, I cannot really compare it to any other musical piece of the genre but definitely recommend it to exotic aficionados who for example love Frank Hunter's "White Goddess" album from 1959. Psychedelic music before the term was even invented.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Niandra LaDes And Usually Just A T-Shirt is the first solo record by John Frusciante. Between 1990 and 1992 the guitarist made a series of 4-track recordings, which at the time were not intended for commercial release. After leaving the band Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1992, Frusciante was encouraged by friends to release the material that he wrote in his spare time during the Blood Sugar Sex Magik sessions. Originally released on Rick Rubin’s American Recordings label in 1994, Niandra LaDes is a mystifying work of tortured beauty. Frusciante plays various acoustic and electric guitars, experimenting with layers of vocals, piano and reverse tape effects. Channeling the ghosts of Syd Barrett and Skip Spence, his lyrics are at once utterly personal and willfully opaque. Frusciante’s rapidfire, angular playing shows how key he was in the Chili Peppers’ evolution away from their funk-rock roots. His cover of “Big Takeover” perfectly deconstructs the Bad Brains original with laid-back tempo, twelve-string guitar and a fierce handle on melody. The album’s second part—thirteen untitled tracks that Frusciante defines as one complete piece, “Usually Just A T-Shirt”—contains several instrumentals featuring his signature guitar style. Sparse phrasing, delicate counterpoint and ethereal textures recall Neu/Harmonia’s Michael Rother or The Durutti Column’s Vini Reilly. On the front cover, Frusciante appears in 1920s drag—a nod to Marcel Duchamp’s alter-ego Rrose Sélavy—which comes from Toni Oswald’s film Desert in the Shape. This first-time vinyl release has been carefully remastered and approved by the artist. The double LP set is packaged with old style tip-on gatefold jacket and printed inner sleeves.

Lush studio compositions with rolling rhythms and wistful melodies from Northern Mali's standout Tuareg guitar band. Disrupted by political conflict in the Sahara, this album was years in the making. The soulful call and response traditions in a charged reclamation to the origins of Tuareg guitar are messages to a people divided. These are songs about change, nostalgia, and hope from Mali's band-in-exile.

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Originally released by Wounded Wolf Press as a limited release (only 100 cassettes were made) back in 2016, "Loopworks" compiles Turkish visual and sound artist Koray Kantarcioglu's (Ankara, 1982) loop based work composed of samples taken from Turkish records released in 60's and 70's as source material. "Loopworks"impacts almost instantly mainly because it shows some familiarity with the recent work of Leyland Kirby as The Caretaker, particularly with the "haunted ballroom" effect. Koray explores the usage and the dynamic of these sounds as ambient music for different scenarios as well as the importance of a newfound life with the rawmaterial he used to create these songs. The source material appears as enigmatic asthese new sounds and activate a sense of discovery and constant wonder throughout"Loopworks". With the vinyl release of "Loopworks" we continue to manifest theimportance of showing how technology and geography create different and originalapproaches to the standard western interpretation of field recordings and soundmanipulation. Koray Kantarcioglu's work here is a strong manifestation of that andhow "haunted music" can express a myriad of feelings and sensations. "Loopworks"has a tremendous vision of the metamorphosis that's been occurring in ambient musicduring the last decade. Sometimes it's dreamy and calm as aquarium music is("500606" or "22 47 91 Take 1"); surprising and infinite as "263 Loop", one of the fewtracks with a voice, in this case a mysterious and transcendental one; or part of a JohnCarpenter & David Lynch film yet to be made ("Organ Extract KP 001"). A fantasticvoyage, from earth to space, through time or simply as the most beautiful and peacefuldive into the ocean. Old music transformed into something new, unique. That'sspecial.

"Caoilfhionn (pronounced Keelin) Rose is a singer, songwriter and producer from Manchester. Emerging from a diverse music scene, she ties together remnants of Manchester's musical past with its evolving present. She has collaborated with musicians from around the world and is perhaps best known for her work with Vini Reilly of Durutti Column: Collaborating on four songs on The Durutti Column - Chronicle LX:XL album. She grew up surrounded by music (dad loved jazz and mum was a massive folk fan) but it wasn't until her late teens that the muse took hold: "I've always been interested in music but I really started to get into it after a period of illness when I was 17. It was music that made me begin to feel like myself again. Listening to my iPod, everything felt new and exciting and yet vaguely familiar and nostalgic." A year or so later, during her recovery she started to write songs again on the piano and started performing in Manchester, graduating through open mic slots to her own shows.Caoilfhionn's music draws on a diverse range of influences from The Mummers, to Rachel Sermanni, Melody's Echo Chamber and Broadcast. She also professes to a love for beautiful, stripped back, piano based music, such as Dustin O'Halloran and Peter Broderick. Vini Reilly from The Durutti Column is also a big influence and inspiration. "We're friends now after collaborating a few years ago and I have become a big fan of his music. It is intricate and detailed but spontaneous and free." Another inspiration is her immediate environment. With Manchester's Fletcher Moss Park especially inspiring. And it was what led her to Gondwana Records, Matthew Halsall, when she heard his 2012 album Fletcher Moss Park. She reached out and shortly afterwards he went to see her perform at The Art of Tea Cafe in Didsbury Village. Blown away by the fragile beauty of her music he offered to produce a recording for his label.Awaken, is Caoilfhionn's debut album, co-produced with Matthew Halsall, guitarist Rich Williams and Matthew's brother Daniel Halsall (artistic director of Gondwana Records) she describes it as a deeply collaborative effort. Expansive, fragile and experimental it's a rich tapestry that draws on folk, psychedelia and subtle electronica influences. For Caoilfhionn it represents a busy mind, change, and an up and down life. "It is an honest and personal account, full of memories and mumblings to myself that I hope other people will relate to or at least understand". It's also a deeply collaborative album featuring songs developed with her band mates, Matthew Halsall and one song, Wild Anemones, even features her grandmother! And the title track of the album sums up the whole body of work. It's a positive song about looking outward, forwards and all around. It marks the beginning (like waking up) and feels like the starting point of a lot more music.

A muezzin without borders, Cyril Yeterian came to the disheveled world through Mama Rosin, a three-piece that stirred the ghosts of the rogue bayou, the clammy Mardi Gras of some electric Louisiana. Soon, the world fell in love with their flair. Within the same space-time, Cyril Bondi hit the road. Diatribes, La Tène, Insub Meta Orchestra, the most adventurous projects of the Geneva scene all had a bone to pick with this percussionist in search of unheard beats. A single word, a single cry can say a lot, as long as it is soulful. The sound of a duo reduced to its simplest expression - rhythm, a riff, a voice - can bear within itself an infinitely luxuriant musical organism - the double helix of DNA. Cyril Cyril, so real, so rich.
