Kao vibrantna, naširoko prepoznata u sferi world music izričaja, hvaljena i višestruko nagrađivana etiketa Glitterbeat redovito nas (po)časti novim izdanjima. Lider, i osnivač etikete Chris Eckman dalje nastavlja otkrivati, te širiti poruku univerzalnog glazbenog jezika nadasve zanimljivih, te ponekad nedodriljivih kutaka svijeta. Tako nam ovog puta u distribucijsku mrežu stižu novi naslovi izvođača Dirtmusic, Park Jiha, Sonido Gallo Negro, Yonatan Gat, Samba Toure, El Leopardo, te dvostruka vinilna kompilacija Every Song Has Its End: Sonic Dispatches From Traditional Mali.
DIRTMUSIC – Bu Bir Ruya – LP / CD
Dirtmusic return for their fifth album, a full-scale collaboration with Turkish-psych visionary Murat Ertel from Baba Zula. Recorded in Istanbul, the album navigates hypnotic rhythms, cinematic atmospheres and dark political realities.
PARK JIHA – Communion – CD
Park Jiha’s most recent musical endeavor, her debut solo album “Communion,” is another decisive step towards a more personal and forward-looking musical vocabulary, it also is deeply rooted in her traditional music education and background. One can sense that this music is deeply connected to its composer. It is not an abstraction. It carefully and conscientiously draws in the world around her. The flow of water and the dawning of seasons. Love and loss. Light. Shadows. Nothing superfluous. A meticulous balance. A communion.
SONIDO GALLO NEGRO – Mambo Cosmico – LP / CD
Sonido Gallo Negro’s exhilarating third album continues their exploration into the psychedelic richness and rhythmic pulse of Peruvian cumbia while at the same reaching for new sounds and textures – such as mambo, cha cha, porro and danzon. Mambo Cósmico is a sonic collage that is not only musical, but also cultural and historical.
V/A - Every Song Has Its End: Sonic Dispatches from Traditional Mali – DLP
While it is ultimately impossible for us to fully grasp the cultural context and depth of the recordings on “Every Song Has Its End: Sonic Dispatches from Traditional Mali,” it also seems nearly impossible not to be hooked in by the mesmeric sound culture that they mirror. Without doubt, this is Malian music at its finest.
SAMBA TOURE – Wande – LP / CD
The sense of change, of something different and fresh pervades every note of music. Wande is just as direct and powerful as Touré’s previous work, but everything moves with a bright, danceable sensibility. Gone are the intense guitar and ngoniduels, replaced with with short, incisive guitar solos and a solid, laid-back groove.
YONATAN GAT – Universalists – LP / CD
Yonatan Gat is a guitarist, producer and experimental composer based in NYC. Gat’s second album – Universalists – fuses the physical garage punk and freewheeling improvisational sounds of his past with elements of avant-garde composition, electronic production and the sound of his genre-bending, estimable guitar.
