fracturedair_july19

We’re honoured to be premiering an exclusive new piece of music from Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Thomas Bartlett. The fiddler and pianist from legendary supergroup The Gloaming, are due to release their debut album as a duo later this year via Real World Records. ‘Kestrel’ is such an incredibly beautiful sonic exploration wherein the inner dialogue between the fiddle and piano inhabits a deep and sacred space, which feels so natural and free. The duo have already announced shows in Cork and London during September 2019.

Also featured this month is the gifted Stockholm-based composer Kali Malone’s new organ recordings: ‘The Sacrificial Code’ is an exceptional new body of work from this special artist. London-based solo artist Sarathy Korwar’s forthcoming sophomore full length ‘More Arriving’ is an exceptional genre-bending and deeply affecting journey, incorporating rappers from Mumbai and New Delhi, spoken word and his own Indian classical and jazz performances. Also featuring: sublime new ambient releases courtesy of Kyle Bobby Dunn, Loscil, Christina Vantzou and Benoit Pioulard (via his Viul guise). Radiohead’s Thom Yorke’s latest studio album and UK folk singer Sophie Crawford are some more of this month’s essential music. Treasured Icelandic group Múm’s debut album gets a richly deserved 20th anniversary re-issue treatment (including reworks from Kronos Quartet and Hauschka).

Mixtape: Fractured Air – February 2019

fracturedair_feb19

Our February mix features two tracks from Dublin-based singer-songwriter Maria Somerville’s eagerly awaited debut album “All My People” (released on 1st March). The album’s title-track is an enthralling post-punk exploration immersed in ethereal pop dimensions, while “Eyes Don’t Say It” unfolds a sublime, brooding and highly immersive sound world.

The cherished U.S. songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Heather Woods Broderick delivers her most captivating and innovative work to date with her highly anticipated third full-length solo studio album “Invitation” (pre-order available via Western Vinyl). The album’s lead single “Where I Lay” emits a fragile beauty amidst anguish and doubt but ultimately becomes a deeply cathartic experience from the depths of the human heart.

February’s mix also features new releases from Scottish composer Andrew Wasylyk’s exceptional third studio album “The Paralian” (via the ever dependable Athens Of The North imprint); New York-based cellist and composer Julia Kent’s newest sonic marvel “Temporal”; new Ghostly signing Khotin and Portand Oregon’s Dolphin Midwives.

Guest Mixtape: Julia Kent (Canada/The Leaf Label)

leave a comment »

To coincide with the release of “Temporal”, the world-renowned Canadian cellist and composer Julia Kent’s majestic fifth studio album, we are excited to present a very special guest mix compiled by one of independent music’s true treasures. The New York-based composer – originally best known as cellist for Antony and the Johnsons and member of the cello-driven group Rasputina – has quietly amassed a monumental body of solo work since “Delay”, her 2007 debut full-length. Each subsequent recording never ceases to amaze in it’s immense artistic vision and graceful execution, all the while revealing Kent as one of the most consistently fascinating artists making music today. 

Spanning a breathtaking spectrum of some of the world’s most innovative contemporary composers, Julia Kent’s guest mix beautifully blends modern classical, electronic, ambient and experimental spheres to wondrous effect. “Temporal” is available now on The Leaf Label.
