Griff Trio - Yoraré (Belgium 2014) @320

The album YORARE by Griff Trio is the result of 10 years of playing together, meeting people all over the world and hours of questioning themselves about their artistic identity. Until this album, their music was a lucky melting pot of different tunes from different parts of Europe. The more exotic, the better!
But slowly, the idea to work with their own traditional music, the underrated Belgian folk music, started to grow.
Putting their nose into dusty Walloon manuscripts, old Flemish songbooks or listening to rattling field recordings was like reading grandparent's personal diaries. Simple people's stories, anecdotes of yesteryears, humble melodies of street dances…
They could have played those melodies in their most rough form, like a bunch of photocopies, but they preferred to confront them to their imagination and artistic desires...
So no nostalgia in this record, but the breath of 21st century troubadours.

Shooglenifty - The Untied Knot (Scotland 2015) @320

This is Shooglenifty’s seventh studio album, and the first to feature a collection of songs. The breathtaking ‘puirt a beul’ (mouth music) of Gaelic vocalist Kaela Rowan brings a captivating and energising new element to the band’s sound, and further confounds any attempt to categorise them.

The Untied Knot drops additional pins in the Shoogles’ map of international influences, this time hitting the road from Scotland to Rajasthan. Watch out for James Mackintosh and Kaela Rowan’s The High Road To Jodhpur, a tune that makes that connection explicit, whilst Burns’s Tam o’Shanter is the ‘closer to home’ inspiration for the title track by Quee MacArthur.

Former band member Luke Plumb’s fresh compositions – the psychedelic Arms of Sleep and The Highway Carpark, a ‘hurry up and wait’ classic – are included, whilst new mandolin player Ewan MacPherson makes his mark with three tunes. His Somebody’s Welcome To Somewhere, a tongue-in-cheek Highland march, features the princely pipes of a guesting Ross Ainslie. Ewan also contributes a dark nautical romp The Devil’s Breath Hornpipe, and speedy pair of reels clearly spawned by the Shoogle dance gene: Samhla Reel/Scolpaig.

A dazzling contribution by Garry ‘Banjo’ Finlayson, The Scorpian (sic) is a fascinating and enigmatic creature, whilst Fitzroy’s Crossing, the striking Antipodean closing track by Shooglenifty front man Angus R Grant, is proof positive that there is no musical journey this band can’t take.

Carreg Lafar - Aur (2016 Wales) @320

Carreg Lafar are a five-piece band from Wales and Aur is their fourth album in a career that has spanned 20 years.  From the front cover picture, with its carefully arranged Victoriana it’s clear that this is going to be an album of traditional music and a glance at the track list confirms it will be in Welsh. 
Welsh traditional music has never had the exposure of its Gaelic cousins and yet this album shows it is a vibrant genre in its own right, which deserves to more widely heard and appreciated.  Carreg Lafar, along with other bands such as Allan Yn Y fan, are certainly providing us with an opportunity to listen and we would be missing out if we didn’t take up their invitation.

Niamh Parsons - Kind Providence (2016 IRE) [256m4a]

It has been said that Niamh Parsons may not be the most famous Irish Balladeer, but many feel she's the best. Described in the Boston Herald as both emotionally haunting and tonally as clear as crystal, Niamh's albums have been 'must-have' collector's items for any lover of songs and singing. Niamh has recorded six studio albums and one live album to date. For the last 9 years, Niamh has been playing in a duet with Ennis-based Graham Dunne—there is a spiritual bond between Niamh and Graham when they perform, which draws out the essence of the songs.

Décibal - Autochtone (2016)

The second CD of Décibal is first and foremost a beautiful object. Clean lines, bright colors, simple text, presents the essential. A design made by Chloe Boureux.
It is also 15 songs from the repertoire Berry with, from time to time, compositions of Cyril Berthet, Benedict Roblin, Nigel Eaton and Cédric Loosli [...] A mixture
fine line between collecting and contemporary.
After ten years of existence, Décibal has chosen for this album the map of the Berry. It is very successful. No doubt Décibal going by his music, his enthusiasm and his warm presence on stage to discover to the young generations of the shake in berry a little forgotten in recent years.
This CD is the result of a beautiful evolution of four friends who broke to make us happy.
