Every now and again, we get overwhelmed with all of the good music that comes our way and impatient that our host, John Schaefer, has not yet heard the tracks. Here's a bit of what the staff has been listening to, rocking, and otherwise digging. We have every hope that someday Schaefer will get these things to air, and every realistic expectation that some of them will NEVER air. Here's a small sample:
Fanfara Tirana meets Transglobal Underground (World Village, coming in April 2013)
"No Guns to the Wedding" - from the forthcoming release "Kabatronics"
Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba (2013; Out Here Records, Mali [Alemanha])
"Jama ko" -title track from March 2013 release
Brooklyn Rider plays Ljova
from "A Walking Fire" due out on Mercury Records April 30, 2013
Ewan Dobson - Acoustic Metal (Candyrat Records 2013)
"Moving On" feat. Zack Bevelacqua, drums
It's exactly what the title says. Acoustic. METAL.
Drums are mixed low enough so that none of the fretwork is overshadowed.
