Eyvind Kang

Born:

Eyvind Kang's prodigious recording career is surprising considering it's less than a decade old. Working since 1995, he can be heard on over 50 records, collaborating with the likes of Sun City Girls, Bill Frisell, Secret Chiefs, Blonde Redhead, Robin Holcomb, Laurie Anderson and many others. He is one of the most original and exciting violinists currently performing in the underground, a fact cemented all the more by his accomplished solo recordings.

Gordon Grdina Septet: Resist

Read "Resist" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


It takes a leap of unconditional faith to enter wholly the resistance. A mindset steadied for the long haul, readied for the next. On his third, integral, must-listen-to release of 2020, Canadian oudist/guitarist/composer Gordon Grdina grandly, darkly, intently, espouses all that and more. Hellbent on creating art as a political act, the sprawling, at times majestic ...

Gregg Belisle-Chi: I Sang To You And The Moon

Read "I Sang To You And The Moon" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Vengono da Seattle e hanno meno di trent'anni i componenti di questo quartetto dalla fisionomia singolare: una cantante accompagnata da chitarra, tromba e contrabbasso. Come si può intuire dall'organico, il clima è cameristico e l'intimismo folk delle musiche di Gregg Belisle-Chi impregna tutto l'album. Anche se è scritto in caratteri microscopici sul retrocopertina, il chitarrista ha ...
