Savage Masters
Label: Brutal Panda Records

Boldly embracing their doom-metal roots while finding friction in harsh downtuned sludge-metal quandaries, this Boston trio has scorched a new, dark-magical path of angst and intrigue for all to find solace in or scurry from.

Migrating to Denver from their mountain enclave in Missoula, MT, this genre-surfing, mostly instrumental, jamtronica group has been making waves in the local scene ever since. Now 12 albums in, their flowing instrumentation with funky flavors and sassy sampling has never sounded better. Another excellent Name Your Price Download.

Singing In Tongues
Label: White Swan Records

Collaborating with Mali’s Jah Youssouf, Eccodek’s 6th release finds them rooted in Africa, while allowing their sonic architecture to meld with elements from Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Jamaican music. Jah’s exemplary ngoni playing and voice are joined by a dizzying array of vocal and instrumental contributors. An intoxicating musical trip into future globalism.

Basswalla
Label: Black Swan Sounds

Pioneering work in the “global bass” style, Canadian musician Adham Shaikh’s Basswalla release culminates his 25-year dedication to creating and perpetuating the global fusion side of electronica. The suffix “-walla” indicates mastery in a particular discipline in India and so it is used here as an accent to his dedication as well as his return to his Indian roots. Traditional Indian rhythms and beats are spiced up with bass heavy electronica creating sensational palettes of saucy dance delectables to sample and savor.

Label: 1320 Records

Contrary to their prior instrumental offerings, this space exploration themed release is rife with vocal samples. It also offers up the first recordings with fabulous new bassist Alana Rocklin. While their signature sonic fusion of electronica, jam based explorations, and expert improvisations are still intact, their own exploration of inner and outer space has flavored some of the tracks with a delightful flourish of 21st century disco-tronica and many other tiny nuances. Catch their tour orbit across the US on 10/21 when they touch down at the Orpheum Theater in Madison.
