This Too by Kinnaris Quintet


This Too by Kinnaris Quintet song img

Sometimes you get stuck between a rock and a hard place when creating new music, doing the same kind of thing again and again. Or sometimes you take a leap and do something completely different. The challenges faced in 2020 and 2021 led us to take that leap, creating music in such a different way from what were used to. We still wanted to capture the live and raw energy that happens naturally when we play together, but the challenge was how to do that when we werent in the same room as one another for such a long time. Eventually, we were able to find a way to record live with separation, but we sure had to adapt and learn to make that happen. Take whatever you want from the diversity of this album, we certainly felt a rollercoaster of emotions over these last two years. Sometimes creating music helped us to release those emotions, and we hope it does the same for you.

This journey has been such a different one, but like our last adventure,

we are so grateful for your support

and hope you enjoy This Too.

- Vashti Bunyan Just Another Diamond Day (Full Album) Mega Rare UK Philips Folk LP 1200


Lully Melsaid: 'Muito, muito, muito feliz por poder ouvir esse album 3'

CausticWindows95 said: 'This woman could sing the McDonald's menu and it would make me sob uncontrollably.'

Banana swirlz said: 'Do you want to know what's so weird to me? Reading all of the comments, I keep seeing older people talk about how they listened to this album when they were younger, but at the time of writing this I'm only thirteen. It feels like these songs are all little gems being passed down for me to hold close to my heart and to listen to for comfort.'

Perspectives on Tradition by Stick In The Wheel


Perspectives on Tradition by Stick In The Wheel song img

Perspectives on Tradition - a new collaborative release from Stick In The Wheel featuring Jon1st, Nabihah Iqbal and Olugbenga Adelekan.

Back in 2019, Stick In The Wheel invited contemporary musicians to explore what traditional music and culture meant to them, through the folk music libraryaudio archive at Cecil Sharp House. DMC scratch champion Jon1st explored samples and fragments of music and folklore from his home city of Leicester, BBC6Music DJ and musician Nabihah Iqbal looked into the Dorset folk songs contemporary to Thomas Hardys Tess of the DUrbervilles, and Metronomys Olugbenga focused on Nigerian folktales and Kenyan field recordings.

SITW: Our aim for this project was to open the doors of this archive to new people, to uncover treasures in order to make new connections. Our initial residency was an invitation to explore, rather than produce a finished product. Also, making connections between the artists as well as to the archive.

The result is a collection of music looking at the notion of fragments, archives, what the function of traditional music is in 2022 and how we can be meaningful with it. Whether thats the traditions of scratching and sampling, or how we can relate to others across borders and cultures, or attempting to make sense of the prism of an archive.

The Sadies - Colder Streams anti-bio

By Dallas Good, October 2021

Colder Streams' is, by far, the best record that has ever been made by anyone. Ever.

As we all know, the 'press release' is a tool meant to announce and promote a new recording project. A jaded and unreliable sales-pitch at best, the usual 'bio' invariably attempts to describe the project in question as some sort of second coming. But how do you sell sounds? The critics' voice must be heard at all costs, but this is something else entirely. Obviously, this is an ad.

Knowing what you're getting is all anyone really wants to know. The details of how the recording is made might be interesting, but they aren't exactly crucial to the listening process. In our case, comparisons can be misleading too, because The Sadies don't really fit tidily into any genre, or even sub-genre. We aren't really 'pre or post' anything and we don't have the right hair-cuts or hats for any particular scene. Can't really call us modern or retro either. We certainly don't claim to have re-invented the wheel. We just are. And have been for a very long time. So, all that matters is the music itself, right?

After making so many records, some things get easier. Most... more
