Show notes for the 288th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
Duo Blank – Even
Edwin Balzan and Frank Cachia return with their first radio release for 2012 featuring the vocal stylings of Errol Sammut. Duo Blank is one of the more mature electronic pop offerings from Malta, so they manage to do retro sounds without irony. Anyone who likes this sort of music will certainly think this is a great offering.
Stimulus Timbre – Garden of Rest
Keith Farrugia has been recording as Stimulus Timbre for a while but now we finally get a full album, entitled Euphoria. It was released by Complex Sound Sagacity on Bandcamp on 18 February 2012, following a release gig at Coach & Horses on Valley Road last night. I happen to like this type of music and I’m sure that others like me will appreciate the variety of influences handled with a distinctive twist on this album.
Simon Sammut – Bassic Attitude
About 30 years ago I used to remember a band called Hangover at the Tigne rock village. Soon after that, some of its members formed Rough Trade. Simon Sammut was the bass player for both those bands, but it would be very short sighted to think that he hasn’t progressed since then. In fact, he has gravitated towards playing jazz fusion on a six string bass and last year released an album called Bassic Attitude. It somehow escape,d my attention when it first came out, so I wanted to bring you a track from it now and make sure that information about Simon is entered on the M3P database as soon as possible.
Falcon’s Flying Circus – Sitting Bull (live)
From time to time I like to include live recordings on my weekly podcast. This one comes from a gig at Rookies in Bugibba by this psychadelic band on 24 September 2011. They’re playing there again on the 3rd of March. So, if you like what you hear here make sure you catch them at this next gig. I have a feeling that they sound even better live than this recording has managed to capture.
