This fourth album from the unique British jazz ensemble is the follow-up to 2009's Isla. Recorded by Greg Freeman (Goldfrapp, Roni Size), it sees the band experimenting with electronica, layering a miasma of gaseous keyboards over heavily syncopated beats both programmed and live. Atonal free sax bleats compete with warm and soothing melodies and the band's signature instrument, the steel drum-esque hang, is muted into the background texture. The album also features a guest performance on the track "Steepless" from Sweden's Cornelia Dahlgren.

The World According to Peter Gabriel

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.
