SnC 426 – Wildly West WATW

We Are The West are back with a brand new EP. Excellent news!

We’ve got a live recording from the high desert of New Mexico, Ghostly sounds from Seattle, Afrobeat from Brooklyn and to start, songs collected by a biologist in the Carpathian mountains of Central and Eastern Europe over a hundred years ago.

 

DalavaEj, Lasko, lasko – Aram Bajakian & Julia Ulehla (Dálava) (New York City, USA) Rock Paper

A biologist was so enchanted by the music of a small Moravian village at the western hem of the Carpathians over a hundred years ago that he meticulously transcribed them into a tome of a book.

The songs had been carefully preserved. But how could they come alive over a hundred years later?

The NYC based band Dálava gives a beautifully idiosyncratic answer with their eponymous debut album (release: October 14, 2014). Based on the Moravian folk songs transcribed by biologist and ethnomusicologist Dr. Vladimir Úlehla, and led by vocalist Julia Ulehla (Vladimír’s American great granddaughter) and guitarist Aram Bajakian, the album vibrates with intensity, even when whispering and sparse. Prepared and distorted guitar alternates with eerie soundscapes. Ulehla’s voice teases and caresses (“Milá má”), then leaps and bounds (“Mami?ky”).

“The song texts feel like fairy tales, like compact parables,” muses Ulehla. “They are so evocative of a whole miniature universe. We tried to give each song its own sound world. We knew nothing about the traditional way it was done at the time. It was simply a work of creativity and imagination. We were totally free.”

Bajakian has toured extensively with Lou Reed, who he played alongside during the rock legend's final two tours. Bajakian then went on to perform over 100 shows alongside multiple Grammy winner Diana Krall during her much lauded Glad Rag Doll Tour. He learned from friend and guitar mentor Marc Ribot, and has worked with John Zorn and his circle to compose and perform challenging contemporary music (though often with a strong rock kick). He has also experimented with tender, more acoustically leaning treatments of Armenian folk tunes with his project Kef.

Ulehla, classically trained at the Eastman School of Music, left the opera world for the uncharted, exploratory territory of the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards, drawing on the experience of the theater icon and his collaborators to dig deep into the physical experience and ritual mindset of songs in performance.

The two childhood friends crossed paths again as adults, meeting up in Italy where Ulehla was an actress at the Workcenter. Eventually, they found themselves back in New York together as young parents and curious musicians. They decided to tackle the love songs and philosophical ballads, the recruiting chants and cryptic fragments transcribed by Ulehla’s great-grandfather Vladimír.

coverThe Trilogy – We Are The West (LA, CA, USA)

We heard from We Are The West a while ago and now they have a new work out in the wild called We Are The West III. This is a single track offering somewhat confusingly called Trilogy.

Brett Hool together with his musical soul-mate, John Kibler, are interested in exploring the convergence of sound and space. For this recording they leave the storm drains and underground garage spaces of LA and head out for a live recording in the high desert of New Mexico. Yes, WATW really are interested in exploring the convergence of sound and space.

Their  skilfully crafted music is layered into the context of very live performing and recoding spaces, resulting in songs of a haunting beauty and intimacy.

Their WATW III recording brings us close to performance poetry in places but always underpinned by fabulous playing and voices that reveal real passion. It repays focussed listening.

Ann De Witt has an insightful written interview with Brett and John in The Believer magazine

 

You can get the EP (if that's what it is) at http://wearethewest.com/WATW/EPIII.html where there is a link to their Bandcamp page. It is offered on a pay what you like basis (min $3) have a listen and discover how much you like it, then let that tell you want it is worth – I'd say the benefit to my soul is worth way more than $3.

The bands previous episodes in the four recording suite are available from Bandcamp too.

LusineArterial – Lusine (Seattle, WA, USA)

Lusine is Texan Jeff McIlwain, an ambient/IDM musician. Originally a Texas native, McIlwain now resides in Seattle. After his diverse yet cohesive 2013 album The Waiting Room, Lusine, is back with a more tightly focused EP.

The release of Arterial, his fourth EP for Ghostly International, marks another successful foray into a niche that most artists would spend their careers immersed in. A calmly effortless work, Arterial is economical in everything it does, creating its own tiny universe to house expertly crafted productions. On the title track, crackling samples simmer like heated atoms narrowly missing each other, suspending us as we wait for release.

Eyes Give In” encapsulates the EP's feel, taut, with no sound out of place, and yet over the course of its five minutes warming into something undeniably human, even comforting. “Quiet Day,” the most accessible track here, demonstrates McIlwain's gift for merging heady electronic music with the visceral appeal of pop, as his gorgeous synth melodies compliment submerged vocals.

Eyes Give In – Lusine

At 20 minutes, the EP is exactly as long as it needs to be, showcasing yet again the multiplicity that exists within Lusine's work through songs that form a compact whole. As McIlwain told Giant Step in a recent interview, his goal is to find “beauty in strange places” and “warmth under the surface” through all his music, and on Arterial he fulfills this wonderfully.

UndergroundBella Ciao – Underground System (Brooklyn, NY, USA)

Underground System's music finds its roots in Fela Kuti's West African pioneered Afrobeat aesthetic that is chopped and screwed with the disparate influences from dance halls around the world. The band's female frontline pushes them ahead with a unifying socially conscious voice, Underground System is a force: a freaky, dancey, multicultural party.

From the two track Bella Ciao EP a five track remix album has emerged, that truly displays the diversity of Underground System’s music.  To create this album Underground System has called upon their extensive network of beat makers, electronic musicians, rappers and DJs to create five incredibly different remixes of the tracks D.O.N. and Bella Ciao.  Underground System Remixed features reworked tracks from the Brooklyn-based trio Archie Pelago brings their electronics, trumpet, cello, sax in for a spaced-out disco remix of Bella Ciao.  Globe-hopping DJ and educator Chief Boima twisted that same track into a dark percussive track ready for the international dancefloor. The Bella Ciao remixes are rounded out by none other than Peter Matson, Underground System's own bandleader and accomplished DJ and producer in his own right.  The track D.O.N. was put into the hands of Das Racist alums Kool A.D. and Kassa Overall aka Kool and Kass, the result is an epic extended verse track that only these two hip hop magicians would produce.  The final remix of D.O.N. is the premier of the newest Underground System offshoot project Big Everything (Elenna Canlas and Peter Matson) dance floors beware!

SnC 425 – Crooned and stirred Twin Brother bring their thoughtful brooding music to the show this week.

Twin Brother bring their thoughtful brooding music to the show this week.

Variety again I'm afraid, with tracks from  a bunch of Milwaukee collaborators, a film music studio not quite on the Pont d’Avignon, the legend that is Plastikman and, to start, a multi-instrumentalist obsessive in Portland, Oregon.

 

Violet Waves Bike Thief Stuck in a Dream– Bike Thief (Portland, OR, USA)

Bike Thief is the brainchild of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Febian Perez. According to PDXPick.com, Perez was inspired by the Italian film, The Bicycle Thieves, when he named his band Bike Thief. After moving to Portland in 2012 and auditioning over one hundred musicians, Perez finally found band-mates who could help him realize his precise and complex musical vision.

Perez acknowledged that he knew exactly what he wanted out of the band back when he was the only member and living in Austin, Texas. It was tumultuous at the beginning, and Perez admits that he is a bit obsessive when it comes to his sound and, by extension, the pieces that make it. Perez is adamant, however, that this obsession comes from a place of passion: “I want to make our music as true as possible to the sound I hear in my head.”

Last weekend saw release of their debut record, Stuck in a Dream. Benjamin Violet, known for his work with Of Montreal, The Polyphonic Spree, and Kishi Bashi, directed the animated video for “The Burning Past.” According to Portland’s Deli Magazine, Bike Thief “capture sounds of deterioration and rejuvenation through crooning vocals and stirring string movements.”

ALMSwing – ALM Productions (Avignon, France)

A hip hop enthusiast from a young age, ALM offers us a journey through time. Starting with 1930s samples and swing jazz exclusively from old vinyl he builds layers out of those old sounds accompanied by rhythmic old school hip hop, sometimes very “dirty”, but always impressive. Everything is inflated by the very powerful and enriched sounds of vintage synthesizers and subs.

His work seems to be geared towards sound for sync licensing but you can still enjoy it free from Jamendo.

twin brotherWho Is Right Now? – Twin Bother (Milwaukee, WI, USA)

Twin Brother has been kicking about their musical aspirations in the upper Midwest in various formations throughout their collective years in Milwaukee, rooted in the steady musical (and comradic) bond between vocalist/guitarist Sean Raasch and drummer Tyler Nelson.

The energetic pop-rock duo, Jackraasch is where Twin Brother really took off, and their progression into their freshly determined (but still easy-spirited) music is a testament.

It wasn’t until Raasch and Nelson ironed out those early-20s’ wrinkles in their Jackraasch days that they set their form to fly true by joining forces with musical comrade, Lodewijk (“Lodi”) Broekhuizen on bass and violin and set to writing, together, with Raasch at the helm. The three matured and bonded with their new musical form, claiming its name of Twin Brother (holding familial meaning to Raasch), flying right and singing out with a sincere, new sound.

Early 2013 saw Twin Brother reach out, pull in and collaborate even further with several Milwaukee musician friends to set to tape Raasch’s songs filled with nervous conviction. Nelson’s busy but delicate shuffle on the kit and Broekhuizen’s steady bass and strings set the ground solidly for additional strings from Nathaniel Heuer and Amelinda Burich (upright bass and viola, respectively) and lapsteel from Shawn Stephany (all of Milwaukee’s Altos).

That collaborative taping lead to Twin Brother’s fully realized and sparsely beautiful self-titled debut, Swallow The Anchor which The Onion’s AV Club hailed as “[taking] the basic elements of folk and graft[ing] them to the fraying body of alt-rock.” True enough, Twin Brother’s debut held fast to modern folk efforts but was singed through with the defiant energy of the 90s — heartfelt and winsome but with plenty of piss and vinegar, playing off of Raasch’s lyrically acerbic but hopeful viewpoint.

plastikmanExhale – Sonar Live Mix – Plastikman (Windsor / Berlin)

Richie Hawtin is many things – an extraordinary DJ, creator of the ENTER. experience, mastermind behind the M_NUS label, technological innovator, art aficionado – in 2011 he collaborated with British sculptor Anish Kapoor for an installation in Paris – and style icon. Before this, though, and perhaps most famously of all, he was and is Plastikman, an electronic music phenomenon whose followers are legion and fanatic.

Between 1993 and 2003, Plastikman created an astonishing body of work, one that didn't so much define a time and place as explode them, expanding the dimensions of Detroit techno and redefining the possibilities of electronic dance music. Across six albums (‘Sheet One’, ‘Musik’, ‘Recycled Plastik’, ‘Consumed’, ‘Artifakts (B.C.)’, and ‘Closer)’ and numerous singles such as ‘Spastik’, ‘Plastique’, and ‘Sickness’, Plastikman evolved into one of contemporary electronic music’s most distinctive voices: minimalist, psychedelic, seriously groove-laden, and ever mindful of the transcendent properties of electronica.

On the evening of 6 November 2013, at the invitation of Raf Simons of Dior, a special Plastikman live show composed of entirely new material took place at the Guggenheim Museum, NYC. The album, EX, was released in June, and then days after its release, a second performance took place at the renowned Sónar festival in Barcelona.

Plastikman has now unveiled a live recording of EXhale from the Barcelona performance – the Sónar Live Mix – available as an MP3 / AIFF to download for free.

EX Plastikman’s first album release since 2003’s Closer, and is out now on vinyl, CD, digital and limited edition SubPac bundle. For the limited edition, Plastikman teamed up with SubPac to create a Limited Edition Premium Bundle: the album is presented on vinyl, with a signed certificate of authenticity and a custom Plastikman edition of the SubPac S1.

Here’s the video of the Barcelona performance.

SnC 422 – A meeting place BENYORO

A show of considerable contrast this week with more music than is probably good for you.  Like Benyoro (pic) it's a bit of a meeting place.

 

Benyoro_AlbumCoverAn Sera – Benyoro (NYC, USA)

The band is, quite literally, a meeting place. Its name, taken from Mali’s Bamana language, means precisely that.

That the six-piece group would come together in NYC seems almost inevitable. The city is the polyglot home to a thousand different languages and dialects, where African music devotees can find their kindred spirits in recent émigrés from the continent. Where South African jit can nuzzle up next to merengue and the blues can sit next to Kenyan benga. And as the band shows on its debut album, Benyoro (July 8, 2014), it’s a place where the Mandé music of West Africa can thrive.

“What we really do is play praise music,” explains guitarist and ngoni lute player Sam Dickey. “We’ve just sped it up a little; it brings the music into a more dance-oriented context. Toumani Diabaté and his Symmetric Orchestra have been major innovators in this regard.”

The album is heavily weighted toward traditional Mandé songs, like the classic “Kulanjan,” but they sit with perfect ease next to three original compositions, and everything is given the Benyoro treatment.

“Listen to the first track, ‘An Sera,’” suggest Benyoro’s kora player, Yacouba Sissoko. “We make the connection with Congolese soukous there. That’s natural – soukous is hugely popular all over the continent, it’s informed every type of African music. But Africa is such a big continent, with so many different cultures, and we try to make music for all Africa, to put the different sounds together and create a new color.”

“We started out just playing traditional music, then we worked up some of our own material. A few of the arrangements pay tribute to Toumani in their style.

sugar plumMoment Of Fame (ft. Charlie Clark) – Sugar Plum Fairies (LA, CA, USA)

Sugarplum Fairies was originally founded by Ben Bohm (guitars, bg vocals) and Silvia Ryder (vocals). After the duo parted ways in 2013, Ryder assembled a rotating line-up of co-writers and guest musicians, culminating in the creation of ‘Godspeed & Silver Linings', which was released June 10 on Starfish Records.

Somewhere between Hapsburg and Honkytonk, swaying palm trees and swirling dark espresso, airy minimalism and waltzing Americana, the Fairies play melancholic songs on sparkling instruments. Think of an evening gown captured in Kodachrome. Gustav Klimt on Route 66. This is music for when you’ve been up all night but are still in control. Reminiscent of Nico and Leonard Cohen singing duets on accordion and ’58 Les Paul out by the pool at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

On the album, ‘Godspeed & Silver Linings‘, SPF has crafted another expansive collection of austere Angeleno pop. The album was produced by Marlon Rabenreither (Gold Star, Lael Neale), mixed by Todd Burke (Belle & Sebastian, Ben Harper), mastered by Pete Lyman (St. Vincent, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Dandy Warhols) and featuring guest performances by Charlie Clark (The Reindeer Section, Arab Strap, Snow Patrol) and RT Valine (RT n' the 44s).

WryLadder – Wry Lion (UK)

As a dyspraxic asthmatic with Aspergers syndrome, it's easy to see why Wry Lion has never tried to fit within the mould of a traditional emcee. Combining the technique and theatricality of Tech N9ne with the lyrical depth of Mos Def & Eminem, throw in a uniquely British quirkiness and a singing voice that is equal parts Mike Skinner, David Bowie & Ian Dury. Musically, he is one of the most dynamic artists working today, mixing his unmistakable vocal style with beats that mix rock, blues, funk, soul & jazz with a molten core of hip hop, combining these influences with a knack for pop songwriting that puts him light years ahead of most of his contemporaries on the UK Hip Hop scene.

Wry has just released his debut album Theatricks, an intimate look into the mind of an eccentric. Through a cast of colourful characters and esoteric storytelling mixed with a progressive political stance and emotionally charged perspective Wry Lion has created a work that deconstructs the tropes of Hip Hop while never losing sight of the need for a catchy beat.

Chromatisch Dee C'rellDays Like These – Dee C'rell (London)

From the new double A-side “Chromatisch” on Holm Records

Holm records present a new double A-side from Dee C’rell entitled, Chromatisch. A kaleidoscope of sound manipulation and vocals entwined with the trademark elements that define Dee C’rell’s understated music making, Chromatisch takes jazz and down-tempo lounge into new territory, gently implementing the audacious music making of contemporary electro-acoustic jazz.

Days Like These is a chill-out and down-tempo mixture of jazz, electronics and sound design, embracing the idiosyncratic characteristics of Dee C’rell’s sound. There is contemporary electro-acoustic jazz integrated throughout the compositions, with reshaped sound design and audio manipulation. With the interweaved sultry vocals of Alda Olafsdottir adding an air of suspense over a complex but sparse rhythm, Days Like These is a delightful track for those lazy summer days and beyond.

The recording is available on iTunes and other worldwide digital stores.

Beef Terminal - Canadian PatentCassettes – Beef Terminal (Toronto, Canada)

Named after a meat processing facility in the west end of Toronto, Canada, MD Matheson has been releasing albums under the Beef Terminal name since 2000. The latest, “Canadian Patent” is the first since 2011's “Humidex” release.

“I wasn’t sure if I was going to bother to make another Beef Terminal album. After some bad experiences involving “Humidex” with labels, I contemplated just packing it in and making sounds on my own with no real intention to release it out in the world. I felt like I was just throwing more music on a massive pile of music that everyone else was making and just getting ignored, so why bother? But the point of this project has never been recognition or money, it has been about true fans of the music, who seem to somehow find it and get in touch, telling me how much it has meant to them.

Alex Chilton said: “Somewhere a long the line I figured out that if you only press up a hundred copies of a record, then eventually it will find it’s way to the hundred people in the world who want it most.” This has been my experience, and that's the reason why I'm going to keep going and keep releasing music, no matter who is there to hear it. I've had times when what I was doing was popular and got some radio play, and times when I was completely ignored. But none of that matters.

I recorded the album starting in April of 2013 in Toronto and finished it up in Florida in early 2014. The name “Canadian Patent” comes from an old scaffolding company in Toronto, the name was painted on the side of a building (probably torn down now for condos) and I thought it might be a cool name for an album. It sounds kind of mysterious and weird to me, and as a proud Canadian I thought it might be cool to reference my country in the album name as well.”

ExtremelyThank You England – Bongo Mike and Extremely Frank Jeremy (London, UK) direct

Bongo Mike and Extremely Frank Jeremy are two, well-know (and loved) London buskers who spent years arguing with the authorities – in and out of court – about the right to perform on moving trains, have now recorded an album called, unexpectedly, “Away From The Tube Trains”.

I met them on a London Underground train, travelling from Earl’s Court to Kew Gardens six years ago. I bought their album and gave Jeremy my Suffolk’n’Cool card. Last month he got around to calling me with an apology for the delay! The result, two more deliciously quirky albums of songs with huge integrity and honesty.

This track evoke one aspect of English manners which may have been retreating for some years but remain as part of the nations expectations as ever, and it’s wonderful to hear this simple gratitude for a country and its culture, not for a politician, expressed like this.

The bulk of the material was recorded in far-away, sunny Macedonia, although the title track itself was created in more nearby and rainy, Surrey Docks.

Mainly ballads, with a folk/rock/country sort of feel, they feature Mike’s talents as street poet and vocalist and Jeremy’s finger-style work on banjo and guitar.

nealfox6Something's Wrong – Neal Fox (Florida, USA)

An artist for whom I have huge respect. I played his track Swank-ay way back on Suffolk ‘n’ Cool 046 in December 2006 and a few others at improbable intervals since then.

At age 20 Neal had his first record deal. Three contracts, one music production company and 40 years later he is still producing great music. Only now, he’s doing it on his own terms and his own label. His sixth release Now it’s Personal came out in 2008.

Much of his work now is multi-media which creates even broader canvasses for his burgeoning creativity. Take a look at the video below.

Do pay a visit to his site if you have a few minutes, there’s loads to see and hear.

FreakGypsy Song – Freak Fandango Orchestra (Barcelona, Spain)

The Freak Fandango Orchestra is a multi-ethnic balkan-gypsy-punk band from Barcelona (Spain). The band exists since 2006 and is performing live since 2007. You can see them a lot around Barcelona but they also play at international venues, like for example at the New York Gypsy Festival 2011.

They are: Noe, Armin, Vitto, Jürgen, David, Xavi, Jordi, Alfonso (miembro de honor)

Their music is a explosive mixture of folk, polka, gypsy music from the Balkans and punk-rock. The band is composed by musicians with lots of different instruments (guitar, bass, drums, violin, saxophone, trumpet, accordion and percussion). They are influenced by artists like Emir Kusturica And The No Smoking Orchestra, Goran Bregovi? and Gogol Bordello.

In 2009 they published their first EP Love, Death And A Drunken Monkey

In 2009 they published their second EP Tales Of A Dead Fish with over 200.000 downloads (more than 120.000 downloads on Jamendo and 100.000 downloads on FMA).

The Freak Fandango Orchestra (www.freakfandango.es) present their 3rd album “Wild Goats and Useless Heroes“.

Financed trough a crowd-funding campaign and finally released in May 2014 it's again full of energetic songs with crazy lyrics.

Slic One
Slic One Debut album from U.S. rapper Slic One beautifully produced by OD Hunte. Sean or ‘Jyawn' as he's known to his friends has delivered a heavy debut album, which separates itself from the pack with it's sticky hooks, musical diversity and (unheard of in this day and age of hip hop) lack of samples on the album. The hit single “ Private Gansta” however borrows famously from the Tina Turner classic “ Private Dancer” written by Dire Strait's Mark Knopfler. But before you dismiss Slic One as another wannabe G you need to listen to the tales of finding love after a show “Raindropz”, warnings to hustlers “Wake Up Call” and of the dream-story of figuring a way to make ends on the Jodeciesq “Black Out”. The track 'Crook Dancin' was this year commissioned by EA Sports game 'Fight Night Round 3' at ringside with the likes of Obie Trice & Akon. Born to Nigerian parents, Slic One grew up in the US. Mr Bello expected much from his son and perhaps it was all these pressures that caused Slic to drop out of High School and leave the family home at an early age. Slic touched on many states and cities, staying with friends and relatives and eventually found his feet in New York. Although Slic missed his home life and listening to his mother's James Brown, the late Fela Kuti and many 60s and 70s records, Slic was on his way to becoming self-made. But things switched dramatically one night when one of Slic's closest friends was gunned down. Slic hints of these and other events all though the 14-track album “My Mind State”. In the opening skit “Ironic” Slic speaks on how he used to live versus how his aspiring rapper peers were living and how it's now flipped. Now a full time rapper, Slic recorded a mix tape album with Kapoo (who features on “From The Start” with JSteel. Unfortunately the mixtape never came out but Slic's luck was about to change as by chance he walked into the studio of Producer/ writer/remixer/engineer OD Hunte who was looking for an Urban act to launch his Southern Cuba Records label in joint venture with Christian Jean-Francois' of JFC Records. The album “My Mind State” is a first glimpse into the fascinating, sometimes dark life of Slic One.
