A pretty lively selection of the best new music from the Podsafe
Music Network and Jamendo this week. I think I'm recovering from
the hectic schedule of the last couple of weeks.
I did enjoy the sign (right). So that's how they deal with spots on
their hands in Brighton!
Lägger Äse - Stromble Fix
Since their reformation in 2002 STROMBLE FIX have released two CDs
which cover a wide range of dark independent guitar music. Both
albums are under cc licence and available for free . Mixing
together punk rock, new wave, and grunge with a psychedelic beat
STROMBLE FIX are just a great live experience.
Only gig I could see: 19.04.2008 Duisburg,
Both of their albums are available for free download from
Deliciously bitchy text exchange with Tony from the Winelight Club
Tony: "On the off-chance that you are in London tonight I have a
spare pass for the Met Bar. Jimmy Golding is playing."
Peter: "As it happens I am in town but fighting my way home. Thanks
for the offer."
Tony: "Lightweight ☺"
Peter: "I think a fourth consecutive night after 3 AM might be my
Tony: "Still doesn't wash ☺ if I can manage it after Bristol
Monday, Manchester Tuesday and Wednesday and Winelight tomorrow and
at my age!!!"
Peter: "Ooooh Tone. I"ll admit that I have to take my slippers off
to you. You're SO rock and roll."

From their album Ot Azoi

Manguina (qui signifie « mélodie » en hébreu), est un ensemble
composé de cinq musiciens : violoniste, chanteur, guitariste,
contrebassiste et percussionniste. Ces musiciens français,
originaires de l'Europe de l"est (Russie, Pologne) et du pourtour
méditerranéen (Espagne, Algérie), s'approprient aussi bien la
musique klezmer que les mélopées arabo-andalouses et réactualisent
ainsi les chansons de nos ancêtres. Par leurs compositions et leur
talent, ils contribuent à l"évolution d'un patrimoine d"une grande
richesse et permettent à la musique traditionnelle juive de vivre

Woza - Amaryoni
Amaryoni has become one of South Africa's finest Mbube vocal
groups. The group"s music is strongly influenced by the
Is'cathamiya style, but Amaryoni also arrived at their special and
unique sound by adding plenty of township vibes, along with some
"Bandit? music and strong Gospel influences.
All the closely-knit members fully understand and appreciate their
important roles as singers in a nation that tends to sing about
almost anything that happens, or has happened, to its people.
They have a couple of albums:
The Lions and Aza'Pella both available from their site
