SnC 419 – Wired for sound

Suffolk And Cool - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 20:58
419

Fabulous sounds from Mozambique feature in this week’s show.

We’re well and truly wired for sound this week with news of a fascinating project based in South Africa which travels out to remote communities to record and promote local music.

It’s all very appropriate as the temperature keeps on rising here in Suffolk, that we have music from a Mozambique and a real desert in Mauritania.

 

Criminals – Groenland (Montreal, Canada)

groenland

The Chase is the debut album from Montreal’s orchestral indie pop band Groenland, led by Sabrina Halde and Jean-Vivier Lévesque, and was released on Aprll 16th, 2013, via Bonsound.

With 20K copies sold and counting since it’s release and 45K downloads of their single Immune as free Single of the week on iTunes Canada, the opus received several nominations such as Album of the Year – Anglophone and Album Design at L’Autre Gala de l’ADISQ.

In 2013, Groenland toured across Canada while giving unforgettable performances at Osheaga and at M for Montreal and were also invited to play at the Festival Off-Courts in Trouville-sur-mer (France), while their song Daydreaming was used as the closing track for the season premiere of The Good Wife (CBS) and the song The Chase was used for an online British Airways ad.

brooksThis Is The Place - Sam Brookes (London, UK)

“There is something of a Tim Buckley about Sam Brookes…a sense of powerful fragility…vast emotional reserves at work” The Independent

Sam Brookes has become part of the burgeoning acoustic music scene, gigging around the UK on his own and with his contempories.

His songs are, fundamentally, beautifully crafted stories about familiar subject matters that captivate the listener. Musically, his immaculate phrasing and beautifully modulated delivery create echoes of giants like John Martyn and Tim Buckley.

Speaking of echoes, for me there’s just too much reverb washed over this production. I know that with that much it has to be a conscious production decision but I find myself longing to hear the raw recording.

He self-released his album Kairos in March. Watch out for him. I think he’s quite a talent.

You’ll be able to catch him at a few upcoming UK dates:

Jul 23  Wet Fish Cafe, London

Jul 24  Field Sessions – The Bat and Ball, Wisborough Green

Jul 25  Secret Garden Party, w/ Hot Feet, Huntingdon

Jul 29  The Prince Albert, Stroud

Jul 30  Green Note Camden, London

Aug 01  Lusty Glaze Festival, Newquay

hot pistol shrimpStiff – Hot Pistol Shrimp (London, UK)

Inspired by the Stray Cats` image and the growling sound of Seattle`s rock, the trio combines unique attributes to complete their stage sound and appearance, as the three band members line – up in the front of the stage as equal members with George`s electric double bass in the middle and a quirky drum kit on the left side of the stage (no drummers left behind)

SirSultry.jacket.3Before It Gets Cold & Smile at Life – Sir Sultry (Los Angeles, CA, USA)

Led by guitarist and vocalist, Ethan Margolis, the Los Angeles-based Sir Sultry Quintet fuses elements of flamenco, jazz and blues and recently released its first full length album entitled “Soleángeles” (July 15th, 2014). The name, Soleángeles is derived from the combination of two words: Soleá (Flamenco’s mother song) and Angeles  (Los Angeles). The album was recorded in both Los Angeles and Seville, Spain.

After having lived 11 years in southern Spain performing with Gypsy artists and having lead sold-out international tours, the 36 year-old Margolis arrived in Los Angeles with a mission to further bridge the musical cultures of Spain and American Jazz and Blues.  “Soleángeles” is Margolis’s first album to be officially released with this purpose and is truly a remarkable work where he features some of the USA’s top jazz musicians as well as the collaborations of his Gypsy Flamenco artist friends from Spain.

There’s a show coming up at Alvas Showroom in LA on Saturday.

NouraMintSeymaliEguetmar – Noura Mint Seymali (Mautritania)

From the Saharan capital of Nouakchott, Mauritania, Noura Mint Seymali embarked on a successful debut tour of the United States in September 2013, bringing sounds from the desert tents and urban courtyards where Moorish music lives to the American concert hall. From one of Mauritania’s most prominent Moorish griot families.

Tzenni (the album title) in Hassaniya means to circulate, to spin, to turn. It’s the name for a whirling dance performed to the music of Moorish griots, often under khaima tents thrown up for street gatherings in the sandy quartiers of Nouakchott and out across the wide deserts of Mauritania.  Tzenni is an orbit, the movement of the earth around the sun, the daily progression of light and dark, lunar cycles, tides and winds.  Tzenni, the dance, comes forth as the cyclical trajectory of a Moorish musical gathering builds to a fervorous pitch.  It’s a word whose expansive valence reminds us how only the most basic reality can create such romantic metaphor.

Produced and recorded across an appropriately dizzying array of locations and social contexts (New York City, Dakar, Nouakchott) the album Tzenni is a contemporary articulation of Moorish griot music from Mauritania—an artform that has been evolving and gaining momentum for centuries—as voiced by Noura Mint Seymali, an artist profoundly steeped in its history and rigorously devoted to its global resonance.

Wired For SoundWired for Sound (S. Africa)

Wired for Sound is an innovative OSISA-funded mobile recording studio that aims to create opportunities for young artists to record and collaborate with more established musicians and explore local youth culture through musical expression. The appreciation of culture and stories of the everyday are unravelled through music and are documented through interviews, radio debates and radio documentaries.

The project is the brainchild of Simon Attwell, founding member of South African band Freshlyground, and radio producer Kim Winter in collaboration with Freshlyground guitarist Julio Sigauque.  Wired for Sound in association with the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) assembled a mobile 4×4 recording studio, capable of exploring even the most isolated regions of the project’s 2013 destination, Mozambique. The mobile studio is configured to run off a solar panel and battery system, allowing the team unrestricted access to musicians who are not able to travel. Recording locations are then chosen according to acoustic quality, aesthetic appeal and cultural relevance.

Attwell explains, “Most of the tracks we recorded are the artist’s original material tweaked and worked on in collaboration with Wired For Sound or created from scratch for the Wired For Sound recording.” Artists receive copies of their tracks, which empower them to promote their profiles through community radio and Soundcloud accounts.

Million Isaac JuniorThikukulola – Million Isaac Junior (Furancungo, Mozambique)

Million Isaac Junior is a young gospel singer with an impressive vocal range. His wish is that Mozambique be blessed with peace and he wants his fellow citizens to feel love through his music.

Mateus Mapinhane CharlesMazano – Mateus Mapinhane Charles and Massimba Lanfa (Catandica, Mozambique)

Mateus Mapinhane Charles is a singer and teacher at the local school in Catandica, but his dream is to focus on music. He has set up a production studio at home where he records music for other local musicians and shoots music videos for them in his backyard, all done on his hand held digicam. Mapinhane’s music is influenced by the Chimurenga style music of neighbouring Zimbabwe.

There are a further 15 excellent tracks on the Wired for Sound album. We’ll be hearing a few more on the show but really, the best thing is to nip over to the project SoundCloud page where you can listen to most tracks and there are links to the iTunes and Google Play stores where you can download the whole thing.

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 12:30

Eden MulhollandThe latest EP by Eden Mulholland, Body Fight Time (available digitally now) was originally written for contemporary dance productions, the songs in the EP were reimagined throughout the last four years into standalone songs at Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand. Eden formerly was a contemporary dancer, who says “This is what I love about live dance performance, I can feel my body have a physical response to the way dancers move, as if I could get up and do it myself.” Mulholland explains, “I want to play music that can make you feel something with body and ears.”

According to the small bio on their site they make dirty, surf inspired pop music, although they do note they don’t surf, if that matters to anyone.

We’ve embedded the recent video, ‘Cutie Pie, I’m Bloated’ at BBC Introducing in Kent’s 6th birthday, at The Marlowe Studio in Canterbury on Sunday 23rd March 2014.

ARTIST INFORMATION

DAVID HIRST
davidhirstmusic.com

David Hirst is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and singer of English traditional songs. Captivating from the moment you first experience his ethereal mix of exquisite acoustic guitar playing, sensitive vocals and smart sense of lyric. Hailing form Oldham, Lancashire and now based in the seaside town of Southport, David’s songs have a strong narrative with powerful storylines woven into his addictive melodies.

Active on the folk scene of the north-west, David is a resident singer at the Bothy Folk Song Club, Southport as well as a founder member of The Corduroy Folk Club based at The Atkinson (formerly Arts Centre), Southport. The past 12 months has seen him make guest appearances at many of the regions other Folk Clubs.

David is known to many from his former position as the frontman of Misery Guts, a Liverpool-based outfit whose three single releases “Trying to Be the Sun” (2009), “Spiders (2009) and “More Human Than Human (2010) have received considerable critical acclaim. The group toured in support of Cherry Ghost in 2010.

The trademark sound is of haunting vocals accompanied by classical guitar but in a typical performance you will also find autoharp, English concertina, Appalacian dulcimer, cigar-box guitar and electric and steel acoustic guitars.

A write-up in The Manc Review likened him to Chris Isaak, Roddy Frame, and Gotye, though Hirst counts folk revivalists Martin Carthy, Steeleye Span, Dave Burland, Anne Briggs, Shirley Collins; British songwriters John Martyn, Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Donovan, Laura Marling; and American songwriters Neil Young, Paul Simon, Bonny Prince Billy, Nina Nastasia and Bill Callaghan among his influences.

“A real treat” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

“Fabulous” – Jade Wright, Liverpool Echo

“Effortless emotional connections” – Dave Monks, BBC Radio Merseyside

“Whereas other artists self-indulge with their emotional warfare, Hirst maintains a dignified reserve, whose sentiments are crystallised in his rich and heartfelt vocals.” – The Manc Review

VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/zoGOuMmzM_8 - Here’s David Hirst performing Send Me To Hell recorded live for the Addistock Sessions.

MELODY SAYS
facebook.com/melodysayspage

At 22, Parisien Alix Lachiver, AKA Melody Says, already has much experience behind her. Since an early age she has been perfecting her guitar playing and song writing skills inspired by such predecessors and inspiration from the likes of John Lennon, The Kinks, Love and Sixto Rodriguez. She pursues this journey enjoying her freedom, life and performing her enchanting melodies. This journey has associations to other free spirits including Soko and Peter Doherty who has been inviting her to perform on stage on numerous occasions and collaborated on the writing of “Penguins” from Babyshambles’ last album.

Her unique guitar playing and bewitching voice will warm your heart and relax your mind. Melody just finished her debut album in an intimate vintage London studio with the producer Kenny Paterson.

VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/Ty9plbH_XpY - See just why we booked Melody Says by watching the official video for her song Bang Bang.

JONATHAN COLEY
jonathancoleymusic.com

Jonathan Coley has had music in his life as long as he can remember, but is a relative newcomer to the performing and song-writing world. Although an instrumentalist since childhood, the guitar is a new-found love and means of expression. Developing a unique finger-style playing, which, although he himself will ardently deny such in conversation, surpasses many long time players, and is always warrant to surprise and impress with its dexterity and melody. It is not uncommon for Jonathan to be asked to prove that he is such a recent convert to the instrument.

Comparisons to the playing styles of Bert Jansch, John Martyn, Nick Drake and Nic Jones, are frequent and gratefully received as the most extraordinary form of flattery.

The “City Songs: Live in London EP” is a recording of a straight live concert that October (Available now on Soundcloud). The first full album “Hamster’s Can’t Climb” came out January 31st 2014. A new album is presently being written along with numerous radio sessions and some brilliant new films courtesy of Stage:Life coming soon.

VIDEO PREVIEW youtu.be/UPSb1Mr7Ypc - Great guitar playing, great voice, and a great original song Jetsam from Jonathan Coley.

HANNAH KEWN

Hannah Kewn is a talented young singer-songwriter from Liverpool who can be seen gigging around the city. She is featured on the K’s Choice the City of Music Volume II.

Dave’s Lounge #289: Sonic Evolution

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 07/18/2014 - 13:51

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #289When I launched Dave’s Lounge in 2005, I made a conscious decision never to play major label music on this show. That doesn’t necessarily rule out the thoughts of major label artists. So when even Techdirt was endorsing Taylor Swift’s Wall Street Journal piece on the future of music — click here to read it — my ears perked right up. Her thoughts on blending genres and taking risks in music jibed quite a bit with mine.

Those thoughts influenced some of the selections on this week’s show, including the lead-off track by Mississippi-born bluesman Boo Boo Davis, whose new album was produced by Amsterdam-based electronic music duo Blu Acid. The mix of blues and electronica in this album is absolutely brilliant. When you hear it, you’ll understand why it’s leading off this week’s show. Click here to check out more of that album.

Edinburgh Man #174

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 20:20

As with many of these live podcasts, this one almost didn’t happen. Not that it probably would have mattered – no-one tweeted at me, so I don’t know if it was even working. Anyway Edinburgh Man Junior got his first bike today. Or rather it’s almost a bike. It has wheels a seat and handle bars, but not much else. But getting him off it and into bed this evening was a bit of a challenge. Luckily he stayed asleep for the whole show (although he actually woke up screaming about 2 minutes after it finished – good timing).

Anyway, on this podcast great new music from Toby Goodshank, Radiator Hospital and Siobhan Wilson, amongst others. A brilliant track from Schwervon which is now eight years old. Yikes. And a track from new Lost Map band Insect Heroes – which I introduce in the most woeful manner possible. Ah well, nothing’s changed.

IVORYSERFS: Tethered

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 14:00

IVORYSERFSIVORYSERFS are a four piece group from Nottingham, UK who blew me away with their sometimes frenetic and perfectly timed multi-layered instrumentals that recall personal favorites like Fugazi/Sparta.

We don’t know too much about them, except the solid facts you need to know. They’ve got an EP recorded and ready to drop, with a second in production with more news on the way, likely by the beginning of August.

Track them down at the links below and while you wait, watch them enjoy some of their favorite hobbies: “racing the elderly, famous blackout re-enactments, sewer surfing & cuisine d’radiator”
