Nadia Reid - Listen to formation, look for the signs: Languid and night pearls of folk. Mostly acoustic reinforced here and there by electric spleen brushstrokes. This album is suits soft and sweetly melancholic nights.
Jesu / Sun Kil Moon - Jesu / Sun Kil Moon: Here we are dealing with two significant elements. There's Justin Broadrick aka Jesu Godflesh frontman and the legendary Mark Kozelek aka Sun Kil Moon former Red House Painters. Essentially Jesu creates a musical tappet on which Kozelek sings his own way. How is his way? Simple... the feeling is of a man, incredibly idle pouring words on himself, as hidden somewhere he has so much "stuff" that the result is again a song in front of which we all must prostrate.
Tombstones - Vargariis: Name and title would need no other comments: slow, heavy, dark music. Like a distant echo of a night Sabba. The scream of a primeval forest in a forgotten Northern Ireland and beyond any time populated by ghostly creatures.
The magnetic north - Prospect of Skelmersdale: A delicate cross between folk music and symphonic music, nursery rhymes of icy meditative landscapes that draw that depict faces marked by hidden emotions and tell stories that begin and end in nothing.
Rokia Traoré – Né so: Rokia Traoré pulls out another CD of wonderful songs with so much Africa in it, but with pieces, sounds and even smells from around the world. Each piece is in tune with the whole, a world-class musician that seems to have a heart that reflects all the colors of the rainbow.
