Old guy, looking for new music. I like music that's complex and dramatic (but not snobbily atonal), or maybe just rocks out or lifts you up -- e.g. Schwantner, Eddie Mora Bermüdez, yMusic Ensemble, Joy Kills Sorrow. Bandcamp is a pretty good hunting ground, so far.

    Entr'acte Entr'acte
    This is string artistry (mostly guitar, seems to be partly acoustic, partly electric) of the highest order, with a bit of silliness thrown in here and there. "Entr'acte", in particular, is a tour de force the like of which you will seldom hear.

    CONCERTO No.1, BWV1052 in D Minor / Allegro CONCERTO No.1, BWV1052 in D Minor / Allegro
    Bach's Concerto No. 1, S. 1052, is said to be the very first keyboard concerto. If that's true, it's one of the few things that humans got right on the first go. Pianist Stambolov gives us ringing, I could say joyful renditions of three concerti. These pieces were clearly written for what we'd now call a chamber orchestra, but Stambolov with just violinists Radionov & Valova. violist Ivanova, and 'cellist
    Christov produce a satisfyingly full sound.

    The Lightness The Lightness
    Barring Indian classical works, I haven't before heard a drummer so clearly as a soloist as in this big collection. Much of the time, the bassist maintains rhythm while Sirkis works his intricate riffs. There is a wealth of tasty work by other performers as well. I may have to listen carefully a dozen times to this extended collection just to get a good handle on what Sirkis is up to on each track. And yet, you get here both soulful melodies, and driving rhythms.
  9. The Voice of Suka
    by Maria Pomianowska
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Służyłem ja Tobie Służyłem ja Tobie
    Congratulations to ForTune for presenting us this treasure! What we have here are lovely tunes with the seeming simplicity of folk music, but newly written and subtly arranged. They range in tone from Western anthems to Carnatic forms. The music is calming but well worth careful listening. And it's done mostly with gorgeous instruments not long ago considered "historical", but now alive largely through Prof. Pomianowska's efforts.
  10. Darkness Sure Becomes This City
    by Joy KIlls Sorrow
    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Kill My Sorrow Kill My Sorrow
    It's tuneful and wistful music beautifully carrying the classic American string band onto new ground.
