Maryse Briffa is a singer-songwriter I’ve featured in a previous edition of the MMI podcast. She continues to record under this new name, which I have reason to believe sees her replace her family name with her middle name. In any case, the song is worth a listen. I think that it would receive a little more attention from its intended audience if it were accompanied by a lyric video, if not a YouTube video of some other sort.

FootprintsGoodbye
Malta’s most active Christan rock band release an album entitled Backbench last year in May. They’ve already released a couple of tracks from it as singles, which I think these days means it’s what they’re plugging to radio stations. This one is rather poppy so it may get quite a bit of airplay, especially because the subject is rather topical: immigrants who leave their lives behind in their homeland.

A rather cool sounding band that reminds me of what my own musical efforts as a teenager would have sounded like if I were cooler than I actually was. This funky groove is rather slick and I must admit that I am very much looking forward to hearing this band live as the opening act at Beachaven this evening during Pyramid Suns’ debut EP launch.

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.
