Sophie Zelmani – Soul (2011)

Posted by Zorn on November 30, 2011 with No Comments
in folk

This Stockholm born singer has with the sparsest means entranced her  admirers with music that reaches far under the skin – to a place where each breath can resound with the  power of an earthquake. To make the quiet intense is something that Sophie and long time producer Lars Halapi have made their signature sound.“Soul” was recorded in Skåne in the South of Sweden and mixed by Ronnie Lahti at Medley Studios in  Copenhagen. The result is a proud and soul-filled album.”All about you” is nearly eight minutes long, “My soul remembers” is just over nine. They could have been even longer. On his ninth album plays Sophie Zelmani, and the sidekick Lars Halapi, so reclining gently that she sounds like a completely different artist than the one who broke through in the mid 90’s with “Always You”. No one can play as quietly and dreamily as Zelmani, few can sound as contained sad. Kings of Convenience acoustic milestone “Quiet is the new load” sounds like an excited techno flat in comparison.

Paul Simon – Graceland [25th Anniversary Remastered Edition] (2011)

Posted by Zorn on November 30, 2011 with No Commentsas

This remastered edition include a demo version of “Homeless,” an alternate version of “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes,” and an early version of “All Around the World or the Myth of Fingerprints.” Graceland features an eclectic mixture of musical styles including pop, a cappella, isicathamiya, rock, and mbaqanga. Much of the album was recorded in South Africa, and it features many South African musicians and groups. Simon faced accusations that he had broken the cultural boycott imposed by the rest of the world against the apartheid regime in South Africa, which was in its final years at the time. This view was not supported by the United Nations Anti-Apartheid Committee, as the album showcased the talents of the black South African musicians while offering no support to the South African government. The worldwide success of the album introduced some of the musicians, especially the vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, to global audiences of their own.

The Black Keys – El Camino (2011)

Posted by Zorn on November 28, 2011 with No Commentsas

New album from the Garage/Blues Rock duo, the follow-up to the enormously successful Brothers album. With the hard-rocking El Camino, guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney conjure up an exhilarating, stadium-sized sound in collaboration with producer and friend Danger Mouse. El Camino boasts a no-nonsense brilliance: The pace is fast, the mood is upbeat, the choruses unfailingly addictive made for shouting along, preferably in a large, sweaty crowd. A band already at the top of its game has gotten even better.
