Thea SalibaFight the Fall
Thea Saliba is a very rare type of Maltese pop artist. She is well known but not too popular. Very accomplished but not really appreciated enough for her talent. Attractive in many ways yet not charming enough to be a household name. Perhaps this is what makes her so special in Malta’s local music scene. Luckily for her, she has spread her wings beyond Maltese shores and this new song sees her soaring high, at least in terms of quality within her genre of music.

Ħolma Qattusa ma’ Kukkanja – L-Għabex u l-Għaliex

Cheryl Balzan & Chris Tanti – Calling Out My Name
Cheryl Balzan & Chris Tanti are something of an enigma to me. They started recording as Sensitive Skin a couple of years ago, but switched to their individual names for their subsequent releases. They’ve produced lovely work, mainly in collaboration with Peter Borg, but I am a little surprised that this rather good new song of theirs doesn’t come with a music video. Perhaps there’s one in the making. I honestly don’t know.

Mind’s Eye DubDub Night One
David Magro, whose Mind’s Eye Dub continues to delight after almost three decades of musical activity, has just released an album called Five Nights of Dub. It’s a tight little collection of ten tracks where every other offering is a version of each of the five dub nights. Lovely little concept really but ultimately it’s the music that you’ll enjoy here.

The Violent VioletsEat Majesty
Poised to release their debut album Tame on 25 October 2014, this new post-punk (or is that post-rock?) band from Malta are circulating this track from it. It’s likely that I’ll get to see them live at the British Legion in Valletta when they do this, so you can rest assured that there will be another track from the album featured on this podcast once it’s out.

The official music video for this collaboration by Lyndsay Pace with Jon Lukas Woodenman was released on 16 September during the TV show Indigo, on One TV.

Forty Days Of RainStrings Left To Fray
Brendan Jackson returns to the scene following the demise of Eve Ransom with a new band. True to form, as ever, this is quite a bold debut for a new band on the local scene. I’m sure fans will love it and new listeners will discover the solid qualities that have endeared the essential elements of this band to others before.

PhobicsHey! (live)
New band of young Maltese musicians offering a very formidable sound. I really like this song and the band and I hope to hear more from them over the coming years. I picked this from a couple of songs they’ve uploaded to Soundcloud. That online music service is really a treasure trove for this sort of thing.
