  • Christian Rannenberg – Old School Blues Piano Stylings

    Image: 1610981 Fünfzehn Jahre sind vergangen, seit Christian Rannenberg sein letztes Album bei Acoustic Music veröffentlicht hat. Doch nun meldet sich das blues-pianistische Urgestein mit seiner achtzehn Titel umfassenden CD umso eindrucksvoller zurück. Eine Aufnahme, wie der Besuch in einem guten Blues-Club in Chicago oder der Bay Area. Gefühlvoll führt der Mann am Klavier durch die Nacht, mal solistisch, mal unterstützt von gestandenen Gastmusikern, mit denen er sich musikalisch blendend versteht. Passend zur Musik liefert das Booklet jede Menge Storys zur Entstehung der Stücke und lässt uns teilhaben am musikalischen Leben eines Mannes, der tief eingetaucht ist in die Welt des Blues und mit den Jahren ein Teil von ihr geworden ist.

    “Jack Rose, Versatile Master of the Guitar” – New York Times

    “The energy behind “Luck in the Valley” all emanates from Rose himself: you can almost see his fngers fying across his guitar strings… energy resonates from within his melodies and his songs, giving “Luck in the Valley” a radiance.” – Washington Post

    “It’s a big, bold work, just the way Rose was a big, bold guy– confdent, honest, and forthright.” – Pitchfork

  • Sarah Louise – Deeper Woods (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618136 Praised by Pitchfork as “one of the most exciting fgures in solo
    guitar music“ masterful 12-string guitarist and vocalist Sarah Louise
    integrates elements of drone, spiritual jazz, and minimalism into her
    compositions. Her Thrill Jockey debut Deeper Woods is her frst
    album to prominently feature her voice. Louise enriches her warm
    singular vocal sound with a lush variety of instruments as well as
    layers of harmonies that together create a tapestry of texture. Deeper
    Woods features performances by Louise’s House and Land bandmate
    and Steve Gunn collaborator Sally Anne Morgan, as well as drummer
    Thom Nguyen, and Jason Meagher (Black Dirt Studios), who also
    mixed the album.
    Steeped in Appalachian folk traditions, Louise’s in?uences are much
    broader with shades of psychedelia and experimentalism, pushing
    her beyond genre constraints. Incorporating both traditional and
    modern methods of composition, Deeper Woods is a re?ection on
    the struggle between peaceful isolation and the need for community.
    By reframing traditional music styles and lyricism with a feminist
    stance, the album blends the spiritual with the cerebral.
    Louise has toured extensively over the past year both solo and with
    House and Land. 2018 will see an appearance at Pickathon Festival
    as well as continued touring.

    “Sarah Louise’s music is spiritually and tangibly set apart from her
    peers’, her 12-string compositions culled from birdsong and rivers as
    well as the sacred drone of Appalachian folk music.”

    Deru aka Benjamin Wynn is an Emmy Award winning American composer and music producer. His last Torn In Two’s music lives in evolving landscapes of violence and beauty, with compositions that shape-shift, flutter, and decimate one's sense of time and place. The album is a collection of microtonal pieces where the pitches were derived from acoustic instruments, and processed woodwind and brass recordings. Both represented new directions for Wynn, and the results are pieces that are more dynamic and full-spectrum than his previous body of work. They explode into walls of distortion and recede into quiet acoustics. Wynn recently created the score for Impulse, Doug Liman’s YouTube Premium show, is a founding member and Creative Director of The Echo Society, a Los Angeles based composer collective and non-profit
    organization as well as Emmy award winner for his work on Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra TV shows.

  • Glenn Jones – The Giant Who Ate Himself… (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619789 The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar
    is Glenn Jones at his most vivid, exploring memories old and new through
    beautifully woven threads of melody. His unparalleled skill and creativity
    exhibits the mastery Jones possesses of his craft, further cementing his position
    as a pillar in American Primitive guitar music. Recorded in New Jersey by
    Laura Baird and mixed by Matthew Azevado, The Giant Who Ate Himself And
    Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar, make for an exceptional evening of
    listening.
    The album’s title is itself is an homage for Jones’ mentor John Fahey, whose
    friendship with Jones spanned 25 years. The people whom Jones surrounded
    himself with too share a presence in the pieces throughout the album. “A
    Different Kind of Christmas Carol” took on an entirely new life for Jones after his
    curmudgeonly, Scrooge-like introduction to the song at a show in Pennsylvania
    was met with beaming enthusiasm from a child. The arching journey of “From
    Frederick To Fredericksburg” recounts a day Jones spent with old friend and
    collaborator the late Jack Rose while visiting renowned 78 collector Joe Bussard
    and their journey home late into the night. Sounds of the rural New Jersey
    outdoors of the recording studio even fnd their way onto the album with the
    sound collage piece “River In The Sky.”
    Jones approaches his compositions frst and foremost as concepts, emotions,
    and colors. Every step in his process of writing and recording is in service of
    creating a distinct character for each piece. According to Jones, “To get that
    sense of place and time, you have to let the world into the recording.” By giving
    glimpses of the colorful personalities who have affected him, Jones’ The Giant
    Who Ate Himself in turn shows us who he is: a master of his craft, continuing
    to reach for more.

    Glenn Jones is an established pillar of storytellying in
    American Primitive guitar music.
    “His tunings are counterintuitive and mesmerizing, his use of
    partial capos and muted strings is novel and intriguing. But to
    Jones’ great credit, those only feel like tools for telling stories.”
    – Pitchfork
    “It’s incredibly calming to watch Glenn Jones play
    acoustic guitar….there’s nothing ?ashy about his style,

  • Vicktor Taiwo – Joy Comes In Spirit (2LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619306 In a world where art is compromised and commodified, shrunk down and boxed in, Vicktor
    Taiwò wants us to open up. The vibrant young singer-songwriter traffics in subtle hints and
    soaring melodies, slow creeps and grand climaxes. Taiwò is on a mission to collect
    something from himself, and it’s a journey worth following.
    His debut album, Joy Comes in Spirit, is at once experimental and comforting – collected
    shards of soul and style reassembled into something entirely new. The record introduces a
    bold new artist willing to take musical and lyrical risks, and to bare himself to an international
    audience. The result is an arresting, unforgettable work that shrugs off the expectations we
    have that musicians fit easily into recognisable molds.
    From ‘Joy Comes in Spirit’s first note, Vicktor is mining his own psyche for its dark depths and
    hidden crevices, demanding from himself the sort of emotional reaction his work incites in
    others. Songs like “Subducta. Psalm 69,” a seven-minute, multi-part epic, echo
    contemporary hip-hop, “tDS (Surf)” seems designed to be sung around campfires in the
    distant future, “Supernatural Women” traces 808s & Heartbreak back to its Zappian roots.
    And “Summon,” one of the record’s highlights, is like if you trapped a troubled spirit in a
    GameBoy Colour

    Quotes on ‘Juno’:
    The fullness of Taiwò’s voice might remind you of Josef Salvat’s (particularly on the
    piano-driven “Fade”), while his falsettos might evoke James Blake, scattered throughout
    are simmering R&B melodies reminiscent of The Weeknd. – Noisey
    Taiwo may very well be on the road to greatness: he definitely shows the potential and
    promise. – Billboard
    Taiwò’s sultry voice coats [“Curse”] with R&B earnestness, washing over heartbeat drums
    and distant, subtle acoustic guitar flourishes. – Consequence of Sound

    songwriting” – Hypebeast

  • Sidi Toure – Toubalbero (2LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1617611 Acclaimed Malian musician Sidi Touré returns with his fourth
    album, Toubalbero. Named after the large traditional drum used to gather
    people in the Malian region of Gao, Toubalbero is a danceable, dynamic,
    and despite the region’s signifcant political challenges, joyous album.
    For his frst electro-acoustic album, Sidi Touré (vocals, guitar, and calabash)
    is joined by bassist Baba Traoré, drummer Mamadou “Mandou” Kone (who
    also plays with Vieux Farka Touré), electric guitarist Djadjé Traoré,
    N’Goni player (traditional Malian guitar) Ousmane “Papou” Dagnon, and
    vocalist Babou Diallo. This is a re?ection of his performance style of the
    last three years throughout Mali. The music is a celebration driven by the
    energy and groove of the rhythms. Toubalbero is exhilarating trance music
    over?owing with joy and carried by the beauty of Sidi’s voice.
    Previous Sidi Touré albums were recorded in a modest tin-roofed studio
    in Bamako. The recording sessions have to be timed around Mali’s rainy
    season due to the noise from the rain pelting the roof. Toubalbero was
    recorded over the course of four days at Studio Bogolan, one of the best
    in Mali where artists that include Ali Farka Touré, Rokia Traoré, Toumani
    Diabate and Björk have recorded. The album was recorded by Yaya Cissé
    and produced by Nicolas “Covalesky” Richard. The songs were recorded
    live to tape in order to capture the energy of the performance. The album
    was also mixed entirely live by Jason Meagher at Black Dirt Studio (Steve
    Gunn, Jack Rose). The approach mirrored the live mix of a performance.
    Much as mixes by the great King Tubby, it retains all the joy and energy of
    a gig.
    Sidi Touré’s Toubalbero is an exuberant and irresistible call out for unity and
    peace for Malians and Africans. Much like the drum that gathers folks in
    Goa, this album’s aim is to unite through joyous expression for the greater
    good of all. Unity is strength and joy is unstoppable.
