Show notes for the 259th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
Three Stops To China – The Courtney Effect
3S2C are back, as I had hoped when I first featured them on an earlier edition of the MMI podcast, and they certainly don’t disappoint. They are clearly poised to be the next big act in the local rock scene. The video they have produced for this track is all the evidence anyone needs that they are here to stay…at least for quite a while.
Cable 35 – Cow Head
The launch of the new Cable35 album has been postponed to Tuesday 28 June at V-Gen. 3S2C will be the opening act on the night and although I’m sure they will do an excellent job at warming up the crowd, I’m sure that Cable 35 will blow the audience away on their own steam. I say this because the new material I’ve heard from the new album so far, including of course this new track and accompanying video, show that the trio is maturing faster than teenage war veterans. I’m very much looking forward to hearing the whole album and I’m sure it’s going to be one of the strongest releases from Malta this year.
Airport Impressions – Retro Star
Following on from their recent gig at the Tierp Arena in Sweden, Airport Impressions will be performing a full live electric gig at Numero Uno on Saturday 25 June. They will also be releasing this new single on that day and you can be sure that it will be played on most, if not all, radio stations in Malta throughout this summer.
Toby feat. Errol Sammut – Tomorrow
Just in case you haven’t had enough of Errol Sammut’s distinctive voice from the previous offering on this week’s podcast, you can catch the Airport Impressions singer again on this tune by Toby. It was originally released on 20 November 2010 but it has only been making the rounds more broadly on the local scene in the last couple of weeks. I didn’t manage to get my hands on it before Christmas, but I heard it on Nathan D’s Top 10 on Bay Radio and thought it was the appropriate time to hunt it down and share it with my podcast listeners.
Andrew Zammit – My Everything
I’m always thrilled when podcast listeners’, particularly musicians and singers, contact me to tell me about their most recent work. This is exactly how I got my hands on this new song by Andrew Zammit, with lyrics by Keith Zammit. This is the same team behind Petra’s delicious All I Need from Malta Eurosong 2010. It’s really good when musicians, composers, and lyricists produce material that’s not for a song contest because it shows that they’re more than one-trick ponies.
