Country, Folk | 00:36:59 | WEB FLAC (tracks) | 236 MB
Label: Rebel Records Llc

Big Country Bluegrass draws from the same old time and mountain music traditions that the first generation of musicians drew from when bluegrass burst on the scene in the 1940s. A tight band sound is central and the harmony vocals supportive, and they are built around the distinctive high lead singing which highlights the group's sound. The band's new release, their fifth for Rebel Records, marks 32 years as a group, and their dedication to traditional bluegrass is just as strong now as it was when they started back in 1987. Choice material and heartfelt singing coupled with their spirited drive and energy highlight each recording, and Mountains, Mamas, and Memories offers plenty of evidence that the group continues to produce outstanding recordings.

Label: Rocket Recordings

When London.s Teeth Of The Sea set about recording their fifth album, there seemed to be more than just the familiar spectres of the band.s collective and overactive imagination at their disposal - the unruly morass of .80s horror and sci-fi movies, industrial ballast, 2000AD terror, .70s-damaged experimental brinksmanship and atmospheric grandeur that they.d somehow conspire to sculpt into coherent structures - instead, these ghostly interruptions - or wraiths - were of a distinctly otherworldly nature. In Soup Studios, located in the liminal zone of East India Dock on the Thames under the auspices of Giles Barrett, all such influences contributed to form a collection of tracks that represented a fearsome and transporting marriage of the ferocious and the melancholic. Alchemised trash, kitchen-sink surrealism, out-of-order intensity and ritualistic overtones collides and colluded into a monstrous hybrid.
