Padova

L'impatto sonoro, ritmico ed emotivo su cui si impernia la musica di Irreversible Entanglements è autentico: non mira a stupire o sedurre la platea con virtuosismi oppure con facili formule di presa diretta sul pubblico. È corrosivo, arroventato, ribollente, ...

Way North: Fearless And Kind

Read "Fearless And Kind" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

This roots jazz band is called Way North, presumably for their home base in Toronto.

The line-up has changed slightly too with Paul Clarvis replaced ...
