...some seriously exotic magic was created....proving, yet again, that Firewater is one ofthe most criminally under-appreciated band in the American underground. The alt-musicveteran delivers his finest hour. This is funky, furious bouillabaisse of fuzzy Gypsy-punk guitars, tart Bollywood strings and throbbing hand-drums.
Drinking songs for the thinking man and a hell of a lot of fun with heavy subject matter.

Slagsmalsklubben - Boss for leader (2007)


Santa Barbara's softcore ska-punkers Mad Caddies have been rollicking as a solid seven-piece since late summer 1995, but their musical origin dates back to the mid-'80s. Chuck Robertson (vocals), Mark Iversen (bass), Boz (drums), Eduardo Hernandez (trombone), Sascha Lazor (guitar), Carter Benson (guitar), and Keith Douglas (trumpet) were named the Ivy League early on, but grew tired of the constant comparisons to fellow California rockers Operation Ivy -- plus there was another band going by the same name, so the group went for a new moniker in 1996. Mad Caddies issued Quality Soft Core on Honest Don's Records in 1997. Duck & Cover (1998) and The Holiday Has Been Cancelled (2000) were both released on Fat Wreck Chords. Rock the Plank, which featured former Lagwagon drummer Derrick Plourde behind the kit, appeared in spring 2001 before the summer brought about a few lineup changes; Brian Flenniken joined the group on drums and Benson parted ways, leaving Mad Caddies as a sextet. Just One More followed in March 2003 and their exuberant live show was captured on Live from Toronto: Songs in the Key of Eh, recorded on St. Patrick's Day 2004. As the guys continued work on their proper follow-up to Just One More, Iversen announced his departure from the band and the Mad Caddies continued on as a quintet, eventually releasing their fifth full-length, Keep It Going, in May 2007. U.S. tour dates with Pepper followed before the gang headed across the pond for European shows. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide

Amparanoia - La vida te da (2006) - Rapidshare Download


"All tracks were recorded with everyone playing together at the same time," announces Amparo Sanchez in the sleeve notes for the latest Amparanoia album, and that sums up her approach. Sanchez is one of the more boisterous and jovial exponents of the mestizo style that has shaken up Spanish pop, thanks partly to the influence of her friend Manu Chao. She leads a Spanish-Cuban band who set out to mix Latin styles with anything from reggae to hip-hop, and they are more interested in capturing the live energy and enthusiasm of their music than in subtle studio technique.
Their variety is impressive, with anything from boleros to a furious, brassy clash of reggae and Mexico, with lyrics in Spanish, French and English. Inevitably, it's the upbeat tracks that work better than the slinky ballads. The opening songs feature the Amparanoia band, but the real surprises come in the four "bonus tracks" in which Sanchez is joined by friends from Macaco or Ojos de Brujo for the furious dub reggae/ hip-hop workout on Jungle 3 or an unlikely Spanish take on Bob Marley's Redemption Song. Impressive - but surely even better heard live. (Guardian Review,6 Mar 2006)

Anima Sound System - Gipsy Sound Clash - Rapidshare

Anima Sound System is a Hungarian electronic band founded in 1993 in Szombathely. Anima is one of the first and most important Hungarian electronic acts, a unique fusion of Eastern-European folk music and modern electronic styles. The band soon developed strong ties with the underground Tilos Rdi station in Budapest. Their first international performance, in 1996, took place in Vienna at "Soundsfair Festival", (as the only Eastern-European act) along with bands like Red Snapper, Goldie and Nightmares on Wax.

Anima Sound System - Gypsy Soundclash - Review

Album Review:

Starting out sounding like the Upsetters in the studio with Lee Perry on the opener, "Authar Manca," Anima Sound System seem to set the tone for the album -- a sound clash, after all, having its roots in reggae. But the mood shifts throughout the album. On tracks like "Mg, Mg" and "Sinsemillia," for example, airy female vocals and a chilled beat give a distinctly European feel, and the growling Roland 303 bass that introduces "Po Drom" leads into a beat that's more jungle than ragga and spends ten minutes working around ideas before heading into territory that's quite gypsy. In some ways, it's the sound of a band with a lot to say and not enough room for all the ideas. "Kalls" heads them back to reggae territory, with the accent on the off beat, but the ideas, floating between dub and ambience, are more abstract. This is music that hits you in the head more than in the gut. And they're not afraid of lightness and occasionally sounding quite poppy and accessible, as on "Tekerd," which seems more aimed at the chart than anything but works within the mad, varied context of this record. "Slow" doesn't exactly live up to its name, taking more of a sinewy weave through a groove, with brass and horns sliding in and out. But it makes a good end to a fabulous disc. ~ Chris Nickson, All Music Guide

Borat Soundtrack - OST (2006) - Rapidshare

Borat soundtrack is fantastic, containing music from some of the best known artists of the Eastern European Gypsy (Roma) genre: Goran Bregovic (former rock star turned award winning composer), Esma Redzepova, Kocani Orchestra, Ivo Papasov, and more. Some of the songs are actually on the soundtracks of other movies (particularly the songs of Bregovic) such as "Time of the Gypsies" and "Underground" (both movies by Emir Kusturica) and Esma, who sings the opening "Caje Sukarije" has numerous CDs of her own, performs in a variety of languages, and has a broad international following, as does Bregovic. The Borat soundtrack is a true gem for any fan of the character or the musical artists!

Figli di Madre Ignota - Fez Club (2007) - Rapîdshare Download

Balkan rock and surfy guitars and breathless rhythm, to dance and jump.

Let's get down to the brass tacks: We love Balkan music and our music is done to make people dance. Is there a link between Renato Carosone and Firewater? Between Balkan brass bands and Fred Buscaglione? Can a bunch of nutty people raised on fog, pasta and hoaxes in Northern Italy play klezmer-balkan-polka-swing without having to disown aglio, olio and peperoncino spaghetti? The answer is less important than the question, the result more interesting than logically correct. The path in itself is intriguing.

FEZ CLUB features:

- an astounding collaboration with CIRCUS CONTRAPTION, who arranged and recorded for us a whole song, "Sadoman"

- the single "Theme from Paradise" produced by and played with talented trumpet player ROY PACI (Mau Mau, Radiobemba, Aretuska)

- a couple intrusions by BANDA OSIRIS, the italian crazy quartet and soundtracks composers

Balkan Beats Vol.3 (2008) - Rapidshare Download

In the early 90s, a young Bosnian named Robert Soko came to Berlin to start a new life. Robert began to throw parties with like-minded emigrants and played the old yugo hits - a symbol of long gone, peaceful Yugoslavia. After over 10 years, the BalkanBeats parties are "legenda". Twice a month, BalkanBeats are blasting in Berlin's Mudd Club: Gypsy grooves, tribal beats and Balkan ska. BalkanBeats became an international cult affair. Now, Soko plays New York and L.A. on a regular basis. BalkanBeats are highly addictive - it's in their savage energy, the colourful, fresh timbre, and passion. The inexhaustible diversity stems from Slavonic, Oriental, Jewish traditions, and from the culture of the Roma people. The music's natural openness enables an easy and exciting transfer to modern times. Fresh Balkan bands pick up those traditions and process them into an individual cultural amalgam. BalkanBeats presents the greatest hits from the Mudd Club on a CD. Traditional and urban sounds - diverse, explosive, and just over the top.

La Phaze - Miracle (2008) - Rapidshare Download

Exit les machines, fini les scratches. Avec son troisième album Miracle, le groupe angevin La Phaze affirme un tournant franchement rock. Le trio ne rentre pas pour autant dans le rang. Si le discours s’est un peu affiné, le propos, appuyé par Keny Arkana ou Gogol Bordello, reste toujours aussi radical. Il s’agit surtout de l’enregistrement le moins électronique du combo fondateur du pungle, mélange de punk et de jungle. Une évolution née d’une pratique intensive des concerts, selon Damny : "On avait vraiment besoin de liberté par rapport aux machines. L’idée a germé au fil du temps et on a eu une expérience avec l’ancien batteur d’Asian Dub Foundation sur le précédent album [Fin de cycle, ndlr]. Ça a été une révélation." Il y a deux ans, La Phaze décide donc d’intégrer un batteur, un humain avec de vrais bras, en la personne de Rouseman, ex-Superbus. Ce retour aux guitares a aussi fait une victime : "A mesure que nos racines rock remontaient au galop, la place pour le scratch devenait minime, avoue Arnaud. DJ Nevrax est lui issu de la culture électro et dub. Il ne s’y retrouvait plus vraiment artistiquement. On a donc mis fin à notre collaboration."

Watcha Clan - Diaspora Hi-Fi / A Mediterranean Caravan (2007) - Rapidshare Download

From the balkan mountains to mediterranean shores, oral traditions from Maghreb to the London dance scene, Watcha Clan propose a musical and spiritual journey both political and mystical. Gypsy sorcerer, elephant surfer from the mountains... the musicians of this strange cooperative of sound invites you on a voyage of multiple layers. Supreme Clem's programming (Laptop, harmonium, accordion, melodica) will blossom in full liberty, supported by the sounds of the guitar and bass of Mat "La Basse" whilst leaving ever more place for the sounds of Sista Ka's vocals. The sound of the entire world intertwining with samplers, or ancient languages, in the image of Hebrew and Arabic, answering to rap styles to be reborn in an energetic style, mixing traditional and cultures to modern expression of electro hip hop.
After the first tastes of autoproduction (20 000 albums sold in 5 years) several travels to Algeria, La Reunion, India, Cuba... and around 400 concerts (Spain, Germany, Hungria) Watcha Clan poses itself ready to realise a new work. Diaspora Hi-Fi / A Mediterranean Caravan is an album where birth will be given to a new universe even more skilled, more energetic and more focused shared in emotion and senuality, lyrically refined whatever the language.

Madonna - Hard Candy (2008) Rapidshare Download

On Madonna's 11th album, Hard Candy, the queen of pop invites us to imagine her as a confectioner running a musical sweet shop. It all starts off well enough. Opening track Candy Shop is an agenda-setting call to arms, with Madonna promising a "special connection" and "plenty of heat".
The minimal, skittering drums are punctured by colossal stabs of synth, while Madonna purrs weak sweet shop-related innuendos: "Don't pretend you're not hungry, there's plenty to eat... I got Turkish Delights." Over and over again, she subsumes her pop sensibilities to their arsenal of clattering beats, hollered raps and over-fussy production.
On a ballad like Incredible, the overbearing din of an inexplicable electric guitar completely spoils an otherwise beautiful and delicate melody. It's almost like they threw everything at the wall to see what would stick, without realising it was a very sticky wall.
And that's a real shame because, if a handful of the tracks had been delivered to more producers with a touch more subtlety, Hard Candy could have ranked alongside Madonna's best.


Portishead - Third (2008) Rapidshare Download

It’s been nearly ten years since Portishead’s last release, 1998’s Roseland NYC Live, but with Third, they show that they haven’t missed a step as they deliver their darkest and most beautiful album to date.

In the ten years of their hiatus, the musicians have matured tremendously, both as soundsmiths and songwriters, without losing any of the artistic vision or fire that initially brought them together. After so many years, Portishead still manage to make music that sounds like no one else, pushing their craft to artistic extremes and making the ugliest sounds beautiful without ever losing track of the music underneath.

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black (2007) Rapidshare Download

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

Amy Winehouse's second album, Back to Black, is one of the finest soul albums, British or otherwise, to come out for years. Frank, her first album, was a sparse and stripped-down affair; Back to Black, meanwhile, is neither of these things. This time around, she's taken her inspiration from some of the classic 1960's girl groups like the Supremes and the Shangri-Las, a sound particularly suited to her textured vocal delivery, while adding a contemporary songwriting sensibility. With the help of producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, "Rehab" becomes a gospel-tinged stomp, while the title track (and album highlight) is a heartbreaking musical tribute to Phil Spector, with it's echoey bass drum, rhythmic piano, chimes, saxophone and close harmonies. Best of all, though, is the fact that Back to Black bucks the current trend in R&B by being unabashedly grown-up in both style and content. Winehouse's lyrics deal with relationships from a grown-up perspective, and are honest, direct and, often, complicated: on "You Know I'm No Good", she's unapologetic about her unfaithfulness. But she can also be witty, as on "Me & Mrs Jones" when she berates a boyfriend with "You made me miss the Slick Rick gig". Back to Black is a refreshingly mature soul album, the best of its kind for years. --Ted Kord

Ali Farka Toure - Savane (2006) - Rapidshare Download

Savane, the great African guitarist and bluesman Ali Farka Touré's final solo studio album, was recorded in his native Mali toward the end of his life, when the artist knew his days were numbered. He spent his last years in his home village of Niafunké, concentrating on farming and family matters, jamming with local musicians of an evening. This impassioned, roots-drenched, mostly acoustic valedictory finds the Maestro's stalking rhythms and high-noon-at-the-crossroads, dusty desert-to-delta vocals in no less than life-summing form. "Soya" (track 5) seems to stand still in a million directions, while "Hanana Soko" (track 9) features a searing njarka fiddle spinning delirious circles around its throaty accompanying percussion. Pee Wee Ellis (sax) and Little George Sueref (harmonica) each manage to make strong impressions while adhering to the groove at hand. Afel Boucoum, a talented younger musician who has been mentioned as Touré's most likely successor (as if such a thing were possible!), graces "Njarou," the last tune. The other players are also at the top of their game, as fluttering ngoni (a West African spike lute) riffs weave in and out and airy female vocals float like a breeze off the river Niger. There are reports that Touré senior sat in on his son's upcoming album and scads of archival material will undoubtedly materialize. But his unsentimental, voluptuously masculine, spirit-guided magic is captured at its best, for all time, in this magnificent farewell. --Christina Roden
