Dreamy, mellow, but not quite Kosmich Musik, this collection out of 1970s Niger was miles ahead of its contemporaries. It’s a shame it took so long for Mamman Sani to have his synth work available, but this charming LP was lovingly curated by the ever mighty Sahel Sounds.
Lárus Sigurðsson is a new name for me. The pianist and multi-instrumentalist hails from Iceland, and he already has a catalog which is a few records deep. This is a mellow, but absorbing album to listen to, with piano, guitar, and voice out in the distance.
Thanks to the Good Lord above for giving the world Steve Feigenbaum and Cuneiform Records, who continue to release, digitally, their amazing wares.
David Borden and Mother Mallard have their roots in American minimalist music. This particular release is the middle section of a 12-part series of variations for minimalism in the same way the Goldberg Variations were for Johann Sebastian Bach and classical music.
A simple, rhythmic, filmic, beautiful melody. A great one by Philip Glass.
