Description:

Web of Sunsets is a trio crafting pastoral psychedelic folk and wistful acid country tunes. Their sonics aptly compare to sepia-soaked memories or the final golden hour of sunlight. Webs is a uniquely collaborative project in that all three members (Sara Bischoff, Sarah Nienaber and Chris Rose) split duties between penning songs, playing guitar and singing across their catalog. Writing their fourth album, “Chaos Waltz”, the band was geographically split between Portland and Minneapolis, giving each songwriter even more autonomy and freedom to hone their particular vision. Blending and coalescing these three minds resulted in “Chaos Waltz”, a beautiful album of their distinctly dreamy and emotive power.

Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

Created with producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Regina Spektor) and frequent collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, The Following Mountain represents a new approach for Sam Amidon, who shifts here from his previous norm of re-working traditional folk songs and presents nine wholly original compositions, with some lyrics drawing on traditional sources. The album features a rare guest appearance by drummer Milford Graves, known initially for his work in the 1960s with free jazz legends Albert Ayler and Sonny Sharrock.

The Following Mountain was made during two distinct recording sessions: an initial weekend in Brooklyn where Ismaily and Amidon brought in Graves, percussionist Juma Sultan (Jimi Hendrix), and saxophonist Sam Gendel for a heavily improvised session; followed by time in the studio over the summer in London, where Amidon worked with Leo Abrahams to shape and develop the songs.

“The Following Mountain is a walk through the thickets of the imagination,” Amidon said, “a personal mythology of sounds and visions and characters. It is my first album of original music, but is still linked to the Appalachian music I love, as well as improvisation, beats, Don Cherry, Vermont, London.”

Artist: Tom Rosenthal
Album: Fenn
Genre: Folk
Year: 2017
Size: ~ 230 mb

Format: FLAC (tracks)
Quality: lossless
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

Tom Rosenthal’s fourth studio album, ‘Fenn’ written and recorded in the year following the birth of his 2nd child (named Fenn), is his most ambitious project to date. Having previously stuck to simple acoustic instrumentation, here Rosenthal expands into the world of trumpets, choirs, and 1970’s Moogs. Comprised of 15 varied tracks, ‘Fenn’ was composed as an antidote to the troubled and shifting times of 2016. So here we find songs ranging from an ode to pasta (‘P.A.S.T.A’), to reflections on modern man’s coffee habits (What’s Getting You Down, James?), to songs simply focused on rising above it all (‘Throw The Fear, ‘It Won’t Be Me’).
