[Music] Silent Island – Rapa Nui EP


It’s been some time since we heard from our friend and Silent Island guitarist István Csarnogurszky, so when he told us he had a new EP out, we jumped at the chance to give it a listen.

It’s a shimmering as ever.  Relaxed, confident progressive rock instrumentals infused with a more modern post-rock feel.  There are elements of jazz fusion, albeit of a more smooth variety.

Another peach from István and crew!

[Music] Bandcamp Daily: Ifriqiyya Électrique’s Healing Sound Melds Tunisian Banga Ritual With Post-Industrial Noise

April 5 will be a big day in this house, as the French-Tunisian troupe Ifriqiyya Électrique will be dropping a new album.  Bandcamp Daily’s Catalina Maria Johnson does a fine job prepping us for this momentous event.  To be honest, I’m surprised more music isn’t coming from Tunis, a place which has a rich musical heritage.  If there are more musicians like this running around Tunis or in the diaspora, it’d be great to hear them.
