Sudan Archives is a vocalist and violinist who hails originally from Cincinnati, Ohio (what a shame she wasn’t directly from Khartoum with a band name like that, alas), and who is working out of Los Angeles, California, making her a local to me. Her Soundcloud page is active with some extremely interesting cuts which straddle the like of hip-hop (the good kind which actually sounds like art), electronic music, world music and R&B. I can’t wait to hear more from this talented artist.

Turkish oudist Mehmet Polat, a familiar name to this blog, has new music available!
For those of you who enjoy reading the blog, you might have noticed a lack of posts over the past week. That’s because I’ve been helping my family move to a new location and sprucing up the place. I may have to do this for myself relatively soon, so I ask for patience in advance. This is going to be a very busy and tough year.
This is wonderful late-night headphone music.
Can you imagine this music, dexterously played post-rock with hits at groups as disparate as Helmet and the Durutti Column, was made by a teenager? If this is Spencer Bassett’s first work, then Flicker Rate is going to be someone definitely worth following.
Santiago’s guitar compositions can be explosive at times, but this more subdued, but intense performance couples beautifully with the trumpeting of James Hill, a brand new name for me to explore. ECM Records, or a label of equal quality, really ought to consider re-releasing an album like this in the future.
