Show notes for the 410th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Neil l-UruganIntroduzzjoni
It is always a great pleasure to discover a new Maltese hip-hop rapper. Taken from Neil l-Urugan’s debut release, this particular ditty has a very catchy and well crafted refrain, which really demonstrates his potential to become one of the true contenders on the local scene, and possibly beyond.

409


Show notes for the 409th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Cinnamon WarSo Cold
Cinnamon War have produced what is probably one of the most powerful and dynamic rock songs from Malta for some time. I really like this song…and I still haven’t met anyone who disagrees.

Winter MoodsFlowers and Cash

Andre CamilleriI Long For Silence
This Canberra-based Maltese singer-songwriter is planning to release his next album, entitled The Road, the 17th of April. This is the first track released from that album and I expect that most of the songs on this new release will be similar to this, in the sense that Camilleri has now established a recognizable sound and style.

KNTRLNight Shifts
I’m not sure how to pronounce the name of this a Maltese electronic act based in Berlin. The duo consists of multi-instrumentalists Clint Spiteri and Erick Saliba, who started working together in the winter of 2013. I like the sound they produce and I’m sure that many other fans of electronica will like it too.

Mirror Man


Show notes for the 408th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Carrie HaberSatellite
Carrie Haber has gone from strength to strength over the past several years. It’s fairly clear to anyone who has followed her career closely over time (as have the regular listeners of the MMI podcast) that this latest offering demonstrates a notable development in studio production, taking it to a level of sophistication that certainly makes the work of this Malta-born singer-songwriter sound less ordinary than it ever has.

Ira LoscoDead or Alive

Lucy’s LastThe Otherside

Purple HazeMemories of June
Here’s a song with a fairly elaborate story that I’m now involved in capturing on the M3P database. I am sure that there are many other songs with similarly interesting stories from the Maltese music scene. Not all songs fall within this category, of course, but the ones that do make things a little more special.

Show notes for the 407th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Stefan GaleaEscape

Robert G + Duncan AgiusNo More
Robert Galea has teamed up with Duncan Agius for this new song. We’ve heard from him before on this podcast, but I think that Duncan has not appeared on an earlier episode in the series. This song sounds familiar but I’d never heard it before now. I think it should be fairly palatable to many popular music fans and I expect it should receive some decent radio airplay in Malta over the coming weeks.

Chris & MoiraBeautiful World

Kersten GrahamClose to Home

ColourblindTimbru
This year’s edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu has come closer to home in terms of my work. This is because as artistic director at the Centre for Creativity at St James Cavalier, I’m involved in cooproducing the event with an eye on its longevity into the future. I am always fascinated by songs that don’t manage to make it to the list finalist for any contest. This is one of them and I must say that I am mighty pleased that Colourblind have produced a song in Maltese. I really hope that they’re willing to write and record other songs in Maltese, in spite of the fact that this particular song didn’t make through to the final selection round.

DJ Pioneer & TJ feat. Dana McKeonCircles
This came out a few months ago but for some reason escaped my attention before the new year. It’s good to see Dana McKeon explore new territory through new collaborations, while doing what she does best.

Everybody Knows


Show notes for the 405th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

For Strings InnTangerine Rock

Walrus and the CarpenterOld Soul’s Eyes
We’ve had this Australian band on the MMI podcast at least another time previous, but this is the title track from their debut album, which was released just a few weeks ago, before the end of 2014. The Malta connection remains through frontman Matthew Engerer, of course.

AnidrocAre You Kidding?

MikaelaI’m Never Around Me

MicrolithUntiteld 15 135
Another one of those hardly known electronic gems from Malta you find online from time to time. This is a new one for me, and it goes without saying that I’d be including it on an MMI podcast sooner or later. Before Maltese hip-hop became my favourite genre from the country, this sort of electronica stuff was up there too.

I’m Alive


Show notes for the 402nd Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Winter MoodsEverlasting

Red ElectrickYoung Again

Clifford BorgComplete
It was a pleasant surprise to run into pianist Clifford Borg one evening a few weeks ago during a screening of Bjork’s Biophilia concert from London at the St James Cavalier Cinema in Valletta. He reminded me to play something from his new album Cross-Origin, which I do gladly. This musician has a special place in M3P history since he was among the musicians who played live at the M3P Foundation’s inauguration back in 2010. Anyway, the track you can hear here is the first one off this album, and it features the voices of Miriam Christine and Qusai Zureikat. The album makes a great Christmas present (if that’s your sort of thing!) and is surely recommended listening to any MMI podcast subscriber.

EthnamorteLa Courtisanne Macabrabelle
A few weeks ago while in London I stopped by an exhibition at Somerset House and there met guitarist Malcolm Callus. This was the first time we had ever met in person as we’ve only ever exchanged emails and other internet messages over the years. Among other things, he told me about the most recent recordings by his band Ethnamorte, which I’m hoping to see perform live in 2015. Meanwhile, here is an excerpt from one of these recent recordings.
