Show notes for the 414th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
The Cosmic Sect – 42
I saw this band perform live twice over the past two weeks while I was judging the Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands contest for this year. Jimmy Bartolo is an outstanding rock musician who has an uncanny knack for channeling great singing guitarist such as Hendrix, Frampton, and Prince without being too imitative. This track is taken from the band’s Rent A Starship EP, which I thoroughly enjoyed playing over and over these last few days, even though it came out earlier this year.
Manwel T – Irie
Manwel Tabone continues to delight his fans worldwide with dub track after dub track. This one is a tune you can vote for on the Indaba website too. I particularly like the build up on this one and I think it’s one of the better ones that this dubmaster has produced in recent years.
The Crowns – Mary Jane
Billy Lee – Struggle
