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.

    Andre CamilleriMerry Christmas Everyone
    This song is taken from André Camilleri’s new album Made In Malta. Even he hadn’t released this new collection of songs, he’d still have been nominated for the MMI 2015 Listeners’ Picks Poll in the Overseas-based category because this is actually his second album from 2015.

    Clinton PaulCelebrazzjoni
    Ever the prolific pop song writer, Clinton Paul has released another Christmas song this year. It therefore stands to reason that I would include it on this special Christmas edition of the MMI podcast. However, I must say that I am slightly disappointed that he hasn’t released a promotional video to accompany this song. That in itself almost had me refuse to add it to the playlst…but hey, it’s Christmas and I’m in a generous mood.

    Hello

    KafenaIl-Marċ Ta’ Efrem Sammut
    Kris Spiteri and Daniel Cauchi have teamed up to create Lukanda Propaganda, a fantastic CD album that was launched during the last weekend of November at Robert Samut Hall in Floriana. Most of the songs are simply delightful, even when the lyrics are a little tough to swallow. The opening track is possibly the one I like best of the whole lot for a number of reasons, some of which should be fairly evident to regular podcast listeners.

    Empire of the AntsThe Maker

    Weeping SilenceIvy Thorns Upon The Barrow

    Robert FarrugiaHalf-Light (x)
    Robert Farrugia released this ambient album on 29 November 2015. It was probably hardly noticed except by his ardent followers and a number of die-hard fans of the genre. It’s possibly the most remarkable offering of its type this year, but you can be the judge of that as you set out to vote for it among all the releases on the MMI 2015 Listeners’ Picks Poll over the coming weeks.
