[Music] Luís Lapa & Pé de Cabra – O Homem Invisível

I don’t like the term noir for music unless it fits in a film-like connotation, but there’s something pleasantly dark in this new release by Luís Lapa & Pé de Cabra, two Portuguese jazz heads. The Saul Bass-inspired cover art gives it away, I suppose, but the music is quite deep.

[Music] Thurston Moore & Umut Çağlar – Dunia

It has been a joy to follow Umut Çağlar over the past few years. He’s released several albums under the banner of Konstrukt, but on this album, he collaborates with Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore. The first track, Kensaku, is the ‘quietest’ affair of this album. It buzzes and swells, with multi-instrumentalist Çağlar prods Moore …

[Music] JOHN 3:16 – Sinner’s Prayer

The guitar playing is so heavily textured that you feel like a sonic blanket has wrapped you up, making you forget, albeit temporarily, the vagaries of the world.  Drone …

[Music] Santiago Fradejas – Nila Taurica

Santiago Fradejas’ album came as quite a surprise, not only to me, but to him. He’s a friend to this blog, and in my estimation, is among the most important young composers of the 21st Century, as well as being one hell of a fine guitarist. This new album came from an explosion of creativity …

[Music] Noël Akchoté – All I Have To Say

If this is all Noël Akchoté has to say, I’d say it’s quite a lot. Not since Derek Bailey has anyone, at least to my ears, make skeletal sketches sound to full. This is a solo album of standards sparsely arranged and performed on electric guitar. The most touching piece, Are You Lonesome Tonight, shows …
