The last few days of summer have arrived and as a perfect bridge between the warm summer nights and the cozier autumn evenings, Maps & Transit offer us a beautiful album filled with sunlight and nostalgia. On ' songs for divining ' Kyle Dawkins & Julie Phillips masterly concocted an evoking sense of travelling. From track to track, their american folk and experimental electronica bring us from the 50s south-american bayoos to simple, fragile polaroids of obscure forests.

As previously noted, Owen Ashworth is on his last U.S tour ever as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. He stopped in Denver last night to serve up one more helping of tunes awash in disappointment, desolation, aspiration, and love. While a little light on early albums (only one song each from Twinkle Echo and Pocket Symphonies), CFTPA nevertheless covered the breadth of a 13 year catalog. Two rare covers also emerged, Christmas in Oakland and John Prine’s Christmas in Prison. Australian trio Otouto backed Owen for most of the show, and also opened with a set of their own material.
Antifa e rilancia i temi del disagio sociale, indirizzando rime militanti contro il regime «delle loro libertà». D'altronde, annunciando il ritorno, Zulù aveva spiegato come «in un'Italia così non era possibile restare a guardare». E non è solo problema di picchiatori. Il grande pericolo per i 99 Posse «sono i fascisti perbene, una classe intellettuale che fa sì che un quotidiano possa titolare Israele ha fatto bene a sparare, il controllo dell'informazione che trasforma l'italiano medio da "brava gente" a essere meschino». «Volevamo ridare un megafono a chi non riesce a farsi ascoltare. E i numeri ci hanno dato ragione», conclude Zulù.
Ludo Maas recorded this definitive folktronica album back in 2004 under his solo project Multi-Panel. Train Times for Sway was set for release sometime in 2005, but due to uncontrollable circumstances, the album remained lost to our ears and hidden in the vaults these past five years. For those familiar with Multi-Panel's Door EP, this album will be like coming home after a hard day's work. Electronic rhythms mix into hushed vocals and guitar, while lush synth swells cultivate richness and depth. Adding to the album's landscape, Ludo enlists singer Pien Feith to help out with vocal duties, crafting some lovely duet moments that crop up like a cool breeze on a hot summer day. Throughout the many layers of textures, Train Times remains intimately sparse. Many of the tracks are Ludo with a guitar, only using voice and electronics to decorative effect, flowing quietly into the next piece. Multi-Panel's long awaited second album has finally seen the light of day, and it is worth the wait!
Talvihorros is Ben Chatwin, an experimental composer from London, exploring the possibilities of the guitar. His compositions venture into the fields of ambient, modern classical, drone, post-rock and folk but dont fall into the cliches associated with any of these genres. The Blue Cathedral is an elegant and dreamy piece from his last album, Some Ambulance, meanwhile the Twin Peaks Theme is a non-CC licensed gift, a cover of the theme tune from David Lynch’s brilliant TV series, originally by Angelo Badalamenti. Fans of Fennesz, Labradford and Tim Hecker, do not miss this.
