I must admit that I was a little surprised that this latest offering from Rikki Lee Scicluna was not accompanied by a music video or the sort of promotional efforts that have accompanied his recent releases. I think that this is to some degree a good thing because he seems to have focused even more on his music. This is a good song from someone who clearly has much much more to offer his listeners over the coming years. I’ll be looking out for more from him and, if you like singers-songwriters who are searchers, so should you.

Trevor Tabone has returned with a new line up of his old band now based in Prague and released a new CD album called The Burden of Paradise on 29 February 2016. Anyone used to Trevor’s previous progressive rock musing will not be disappointed and will find many fine moments in this new album. I’ve picked the final track from the CD to close off this week’s podcast. I think it’s quite a well-crafted and delightful song.

I’m not entirely sure why this CD album Riflessi: Art Songs From Malta CD escaped this podcast last year, when it was first released. It certainly hadnt’ escaped my attention, particularly because I even attended a live concert by Miriam Cauchi with Alex Vella Gregory in Valletta. Anyhow, it’s time to rectify that by including this track on this edition of the podcast.

This new band will be releasing their debut EP on 12 March 2016 at the Beachaven in Xemxija. Their style is quite deliciously raw and raucous, which is rather unusual for the local scene. I’ve heard a preview of the whole EP and I must say that I’m really looking forward to two things: (a) watching the band live, and (b) more new material from them.

This new rock trio from Malta will be releasing their debut EP on the 19th of February 2016 at Django’s in Valletta. I really like the sound of this first release. It has a raw sound that’s still rather clean. They’re indeed the sort of band I’d love to see live and I’m sure that eventually I’ll manage to do so. I’m also confident that they’ll get even better in time.

sfsdf Julian Grech, the keyboardist from Frenzy Mono and Noman Son has teamed up with his real-life partner Alexia Baldacchino to form a new symphonic rock duo. They made their debut this evening, just as I was recording this podcast and I’m fairly certain that they were quite well received by the people gathered at the Buskett Roadhouse for tonight’s Nomad Sun concert.

Josie CharlwoodReal
From time to time this series of podcasts features music by non-Maltese acts that involve Maltese musicians. Josie Charlwood’s EP Look Up, released on falls squarely in this category. This record features Matthew Vella on drums and I’m mighty glad that he brought this singer and her EP to my attention. I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.

Franco Tartaglia released his Brushwork album last year. It was nominated in the MMI 2015 Listeners’ Picks Poll but I never really got around to playing tracks from it. This will certainly address that shortcoming from my end. I think that others who seek pleasant instrumental guitar music will want to give the whole album a good listen and include it on their personal playlist. I’m a little surprised that this release has not received more attention. It certainly deserves it.

Jon Lukas WoodenmanYour Song
The grandfather of prolific Maltese pop singer-songwriters is back with a new offering reflecting his mindset, inspired by specific sad stories, the likes of which are all around us. The melancholic start leads to a rather pleasant development that makes this song worth more than one listen. While I doubt it’ll become a classic, it’s certainly a release that deserves more attention than I suspect it will receive.
