    Mostafa Özkent - Gençlik İle Elele

    [​IMG]

    Awesome genre bending Turkish funk music. Yes, the music is as good as as the album cover. Recorded in 1973 and reissued in 2007 to critical acclaim though it’s still relatively unknown. Some of the most danceable music you’ll ever hear. He establishes a groove in the first 10 seconds and keeps it going the whole album. It blends funk, jazz, soul, rock and elements of Turkish folk music in a subtle way that just flavors the whole album with a unique sound.

    This one is truly awesome don’t miss out.

    sound quality is good for 1973 but not super hifi sounding and clean like today’s recordings. But if that stops you, you have problems. Go listen to Diana Krall and jerk yourself off.

    Oooh, excellent idea, I'll go do that now!

    Seriously, looking forward to getting caught up on some of these recommendations soon. Too many meetings lately, not much time for music. :(

    could also double as the soundtrack for a bad 1973 porno flick... or blaxploitation film (Dolemite, mutha f'er)

    Porn music? That shit is so good. I think any funky music can be twisted that way if you want to. Don’t ruin the vibes man!

    Alabaster dePlume - To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol. 1

    [​IMG]

    Tender, relaxing, soulful saxophone based jazz. There is a sense of extreme gentleness of spirit being expressed in this music. It’s as if he’s reaching out and trying to calm your nerves and heal anxious spirits. He in fact used to work as a mental health worker and I believe this was his intention with this album. It is named after two co workers at a former mental health facility. And many of the melodies are based on tunes they would sing together to relax.

    The music is mostly just saxophone playing slow melodies with very minimal backup musicians. Sometimes a little shaker or some hushed acoustic guitar or piano. Or a very quiet cymbal splash here and there.

    beautiful music. Good sound quality

    another interesting album is a collaboration between Alabaster dePlume and I’m guessing a hip hop artist. It’s completely different music.

    Alabaster dePlume & Danalogue - I Was Not Sleeping

    [​IMG]

    This album is a melting pot of hip hop, jazz, soul, rock and electronic music. Hip hop rhythms, interesting electronic sounds of all sorts, jazz melodies, soul melodies and rhythms, rock sensibilities. And very minimal, unique and varied (enough for me to enjoy the album) rapping.

    Pretty Unique sound. Good sound quality

    Unreqvited- Empathica

    [​IMG]

    Decidedly a metal album but like no other I’ve heard. It’s actually quite beautiful, calm and uplifting. A pretty magical album. Very epic in scale snd mood. Less aggressive guitars, more beautiful clean riffs and lots of keyboard atmospherics and some orchestral sections. Even the screaming (no vocals) is minimal and hushed by being pushed to the background and manages to add intensity rather than darkness. This is part classical music really. But with a wide variety of sounds. The album cover actually does it justice.

    Chat Pile - Dallas Beltway (song)

    [​IMG]

    This song is so awesome. So fucking dark in the best way. Fans of Michael Gira’s work or metal in general should listen. If you only like happy jingles beware. It might give you nightmares.

    “Okay, listen, I’m normally a reasonable guy
    Listen, okay? You look at me- people trust me
    Okay I’m not that kind of person, but
    You wanna see what ordinary hands can do to something fragile?

    Watch me”​

    I’m going to link to the EP on these streaming services because this is the first song and the rest of the EP is interesting even if not as good as this song.

    The Breath - Let The Cards Fall

    [​IMG]

    One of the most beautiful recordings I’ve ever heard. Extremely clear, rich, detsiled and natural.

    A genre bending folk group from Manchester. They blend traditional Irish folk music with modern influences. Absolutely gorgeous female vocals that are timeless, full of range, breath and depth. Combined with excellent song writing with interesting riffs and good songwriting and lyrics. Anyone who is a fan of “female vocals” should check this out.

    The Breath is former Cinematic Orchestra guitarist Stuart McCallum and singer and lyricist Rioghnach Connolly with members of Cinematic Orchestra.
