The CrownsDo I Like You More In Christmas?

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


Show notes for the 432nd Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

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.
