Sam Amidon – The Following Mountain (2017) [WEB FLAC]

Format: FLAC (tracks)

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.”

Description:

Irish singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow began his musical life only after he was well into his teens. Initially a drummer, he was drawn to the harsher sounds of At the Drive-In, Refused, and Glassjaw. He mellowed some while at college, where he discovered the more acoustic-oriented sounds of Sufjan Stevens and Band of Horses. He picked up a guitar at 19 after hearing Donny Hathaway’s “I Love You More Than You Will Ever Know,” and began writing songs and digging into the music of the ’70s singer/songwriter era, particularly from female artists because of the pitch of his own voice. Eventually developing a writing and performance style that suited him, McMorrow began playing shows in local pubs, where he was received warmly. He decided to record an album, moving into a small house on Ireland’s coastline and holing up with his guitar, a keyboard, a microphone, a computer, and several other instruments. He wrote and cut what would eventually become his debut self-titled EP, and his first album, Early in the Morning. The full-length was released by Believe Recordings in Ireland in March of 2010, and was greeted with very favorable reviews, a top chart spot, a Choice Music nomination, platinum sales, and appearances at Royal Festival Hall and on Later…with Jools Holland while on tour. The album was released in the U.S. later that year on Vagrant. He further expanded his fan base when his pared-down version of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” was used as part of LOVEFiLM’s TV advertising campaign. The popularity of the cover led to an expanded version of his debut being released with the song included, as well as an acoustic rendition of “We Don’t Eat.” McMorrow decamped to a small studio in Texas in 2013 to record his follow-up, Post Tropical, an album that was almost an about-face from his debut, given its synthetic instrumentation and horn charts. It was issued in 2014 by Believe in the U.K. and Vagrant in the U.S. The album proved a hit in Ireland where it reached number two. The following year, while touring, McMorrow scored the director Sam Benenati’s film Martha as part of the series Campaign4Change’s “Mix-Up Tradition.” He also recorded a cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” that was used in the trailer for season six of the HBO series Game of Thrones, and appeared on the third promotional single for Norwegian DJ/producer Kygo’s debut album Cloud Nine. McMorrow had spent the previous year touring and recording his follow up to Post Tropical. Entitled We Move, the album’s ten songs featured high-gloss productions from Nineteen85, Two Inch Punch, and Frank Dukes, and was mixed by Jimmy Douglass (Donny Hathaway, Timbaland). Preceded by the singles “Rising Water” in July and “Get Low” in August, the set was issued by Caroline in early September. ~ Thom Jurek

Genre: Folk

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’).

Description:

Teenage Emotions merges Lil Yachty s signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip hop bombast, pop and eighties cultural touchstones. The 19-year-old Atlanta native is proudly genre-defying, mining hip-hop, alternative, indie sounds as well as his hometown Atlanta trap DNA to solidify his mosaic approach. The album is a reflection of young lives right now, from happiness to social media-saturated heartbreak to the dance floor, caught in a sound that effortlessly, constantly bounces from rap to pop to something entirely its own. Personally the nineteen-year-old strives to promote positivity and good vibes. It caters to a teenager s everyday lifestyle-heartbreak, happiness, that vibe when you waking up in the morning getting dressed and you just wanna dance.
