One of Italy’s finest combos, Cinedelic, take on Brazilian grooves and wild library and soundtrack music.
Month: July 2017
[Music] Celer – Plays Liberace
[Music] Toàn – Histós Lusis
Toàn is a French sound designer based in England who has a wonderful gift for blending jazz, hip-hop, ambient, classical and avant-garde music into one very pleasant jumble.
[Music] Salvador Jimenez Hernandez & The Mariachi Mexteca with Hugh Cornwell – Golden Brown
Amazing. The Mariachi Mexteca collaborate with The Stranglers’ singer Hugh Cornwell on what is my favorite Stranglers song, Golden Brown. Punk and Mariachi seem to blend together beautifully in this example.
[Film] Andrei Tarkovsky – Stalker Blu-Ray Now Out
Great news! One of Andrei Tarkovsky’s greatest films, Stalker, has been reissued on Blu-Ray by The Criterion Collection.
[Music] Tony Buck – Unearth
Though we’re not yet allowed to embed the release, it looks like there will be a new release coming in September by The Necks drummer Tony Buck. Our friends at Room 40 Records in Australia will be doing the honors, and you can go directly to their Bandcamp site to pre-order it.
[Music] Утро – Утро LP
This has to be some of the bleakest music I’ve heard in a while. Утро (Yutro, or Morning) are a band I have absolutely no information on, but they sound a bit like Joy Division going on a bender after swallowing a bunch of downers. Heavy, brutal, but really good-quality post-punk.
[Music] Ezequiel Viñao – Beowulf: Scyld’s Burial – Paul Hillier
Ezequiel Viñao is an avant-garde composer originally hails from Argentina, but is now an American citizen based out of New York City.
This particular piece is performed by the National Chamber Choir of Ireland, with Paul Hillier serving as conductor.
[Music] Awesome Tapes From Africa: An Interview with Brian Shimkovitz
Awesome Tapes From Africa is lucky to have an owner who has a deep passion for the music he puts out. PopMatters.com lets Awesome head honcho Brian Shimkovitz hold court. It’s worth checking out Brian’s blog which started his interest in African music.
[Music] Ethel Koffman – Flor Verbena
Editorial Municipal de Rosario is a record label out of Rosario, Argentina, which normally focuses on classical music. After digging into their catalog, I noticed that they’re not limited to that genre alone.
This album features the warm voice of Ethel Koffman, a fellow Argentine whose voice lilts in a way that would fit well with Bossa Nova music.
