[Music] bastrd – An Anthology of 16th Century Azerbaijani Classical Works by Fuzûlî

I have a sneaking suspicion that the legendary Divan poet Fuzûlî didn’t dabble in modern hip-hop during the 1500s, though who am I to suggest that the young, enterprising souls in bastrd didn’t go back in time and ask him to sample a few grooves for him?

Rather elegant jazzy lo-fi beat music out of Northern California.  A worthy purchase.

[Music] Breatherrr – Chantrieri

I NEVER get mail from local bands or record labels. It’s been a constant since I started writing to musicians. Part of it was because I could see them at my leisure, but part of it was because it wasn’t ‘cool’ to talk to local indie rags, only to people from the outside. Well, today, I can say that I can finally promote a local person. Breatherrr is a trip-hop act with retro influences which bring up genres like electro and new wave. I’ll have to investigate further.

[Music] Andrea Parker – Nobody’s Perfect Vol. 3

Andrea Parker produces something I hate calling trip-hop, as it seems so limiting. She’s on another plane in the world of electronica.
