I managed to catch this new power trio playing an opening set before the Don Ross concert at City Theatre in Valletta earlier this month and I must say that I was very impressed by their slick sound. They are about to release their debut album entitled Cuckoo Island at the Marsa Sports Club on 11 December 2015. This track is not too representative of the other tracks I’ve heard them play but it certainly gives you a glimpse of the fresh sound they’re unleashing onto the Malta music scene. Watch out for this guys…they’re going places.

Not My Soul


Show notes for the 430th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

RelikcPush
Second track released to promote the EP It’s Not Misspelt finds this band in top form. It provides a formidable opening track for this week podcast. I’m not sure whether they’re also planning a promotional video to go with it. If they do, this text will eventually be replaced by that video.

Alex Taylor-Helleur plays trumpet on the nosnow/noalps track featured earlier in this week’s podcast. However he also releases tracks as a solo artist through Soundcloud. This is his latest offering in that guise.

Complexity


Show notes for the 429th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Mind’s Eye DubNature’s Dub
Starting any podcast with Mind’s Eye Dub is always a good idea. I don’t see why it should be any different for the 10th anniversary edition.

Kapitlu TlettaxNissokta b’Risposta
This is the very first time that my name has been mentioned during a song. It obviously had to be a Maltese hip-hop track. Thanks guys, I am truly honoured and humbled. Your timing is impeccable…and so I’m able to include your latest release on this rather special edition of the MMI podcast.

Andre CamilleriHell-bound Train
I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a song from Andre Camilleri that I didn’t like. Naturally, this is no exception. I’m actually mighty glad he’s still churning them out. To my mind, he’s a little bit like the next generation’s Freddie Portelli in that way.

On this 10th anniversary, take a look at the show notes for the very first podcast in the series.

Jack’s FusionElectric

12th OdeForgotten Warriors
Taken from their debut album The Awakening, which was released on the 16th of October 2015, this track provides a glimpse of a rather significant band on the Maltese metal scene. Made up of musicians who have mostly been active on the local rock scene since the 1980s, 12th Ode is a living bloodline to the legacy from which rock bands developed in Malta over the past several decades.

    Counting CloudsYou Know
    Maltese pianist Clifford Borg is a member of this international band, with reach into the USA and Germany, among other places. It’s lovely chill out music and should please you if you’re in that particular mood. Well, at least I seem to think so. Your experience may be different from mine.

    Remember NothingChange

    Club MurderDerailed

    Luke AzzopardiNo Rest for the Wise
    From time to time I take great pleasure in including rather obscure tracks or material from lesser known Maltese musicians. This pick falls squarely in this category, even though I believe I’ve already included a recording by Luke Azzopardi in a previous edition of the MMI podcast. In any case, it’s likely I’ll do so again in the future.

    Forty Days of RainStay

    DanjeliEl
    Regular listeners of the MMI podcast will know that Danjeli has been a long-time favourite pick for this series. Whenever he produces new tracks you can be sure that they will be featured on an edition of this podcast, sooner or later. Here’s the latest offering, featuring a fairly low risk track, which nonetheless certainly pleases his fans around the world.

    Miriana ConteReality

    Matthew Attard Il-KalakkuĦolma tal-Passat
    This is a new rapper, at least as far as the MMI podcast is concerned. Beats for this track are by Digby, who is no stranger to the podcast. However, I feel that the relatively raw production values of this otherwise fairly standard approach to Maltese-language hip-hop give great hope to listeners like me who expect more from this rapper in the coming months and years.

    Il-MicGħalik
    Michael Cassar is a raw Maltese rapper who spits rhymes straight from his heart over beats that seem rather urgent. He has a good sense of engagement with his listeners even if this particular ditty only runs for one minute and forty-two seconds. And I don’t think it’s a second too short or too long.
