Show notes for the 397th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:

Kurt Aquilina feat. Gino MicallefStep Closer
It’s refreshing to hear this sort of thing from time to time. I’m also glad it’s coming from Maltese musicians spanning two generations. I wonder whether it’s actually just a one-off or the beginning of a more elaborate collaboration. Only time will tell, of course.

FootprintsEchoes of Praise
Ever since Salt stopped performing, this Christian rock band from Malta became the de facto leading act in the genre within its many followers in the country. The band is now working on its second album, which is due out in early 2015. This is the first track from it.

Rachel FabriA Little More Time
I’m really please to be able to include the voice of this singer on the MMI podcast. I have fond memories of her work with Sixth Simfoni during early editions of the series, just a hip-hop was becoming a dominant genre in the local scene. Then she left for the UK, did some interesting work, after which I somehow lost track of her. Clearly, I should pay more attention. I’m sure you will too once you hear this song, if it’s the sort of thing you like.

IzzyliciousHeart Back
The first time I featured Isabelle Luca Borg’s voice on the MMI podcast I mistakenly declared that it was the first time I had play something by a blood relative during the series. I was wrong. That distinction goes to another second cousin of mine, who presently performs on the international music circuits as half of South Central. In any case, I’m glad to include Izzylicious again, now that she’s in a new phase, exploring new sounds as a song-writer. I’m sure that this is not the last time will hear from her.

Enzo GusmanDreamer Next To Ben’s Grave
Anton Grech, Joey Chircop, and David Agius wrote the first original rock opera to be staged in Malta. It first appeared at the Manoel Theatre in Valletta exactly 40 years ago. To mark this anniversary I thought it would be good to play the opening song from a rather rare recording on this week’s podcast. You can find out more about this production on the M3P wiki.

Fran6HP feat. Sempliċiment tat-TriqLiberte
They’re back with a couple of new recordings they did recently in France. They’re now getting ready to go on tour across Eastern Europe. Put your hands together for the most formidable underground hip-hop act to ever emerge from Malta and remember where you heard them first.

Thea SalibaFight the Fall
Thea Saliba is a very rare type of Maltese pop artist. She is well known but not too popular. Very accomplished but not really appreciated enough for her talent. Attractive in many ways yet not charming enough to be a household name. Perhaps this is what makes her so special in Malta’s local music scene. Luckily for her, she has spread her wings beyond Maltese shores and this new song sees her soaring high, at least in terms of quality within her genre of music.

Cheryl Balzan & Chris Tanti – Calling Out My Name
Cheryl Balzan & Chris Tanti are something of an enigma to me. They started recording as Sensitive Skin a couple of years ago, but switched to their individual names for their subsequent releases. They’ve produced lovely work, mainly in collaboration with Peter Borg, but I am a little surprised that this rather good new song of theirs doesn’t come with a music video. Perhaps there’s one in the making. I honestly don’t know.

Mind’s Eye DubDub Night One
David Magro, who’s Minds Eye Dub continues to delight after almost three decades of musical activity, has just released an album called Five Nights of Dub. It’s a tight little collection of ten tracks where every other offering is a version of each of the five dub nights. Lovely little concept really but ultimately it’s the music that you’ll enjoy here.

The Violent VioletsEat Majesty
Poised to release their debut album Tame on 25 October 2014, this new post-punk (or is that post-rock?) band from Malta are circulating this track from it. It’s likely that I’ll get to see them live at the British Legion in Valletta when they do this, so you can rest assured that there will be another track from the album featured on this podcast once it’s out.

Forty Days To RainStrings Left To Fray
Brandon Jackson returns to the scene following the demise of Eve Ransom with a new band. True to form, as ever, this is quite a bold debut for a new band on the local scene. I’m sure fans will love it and new listeners will discover the solid qualities that have endeared the essential elements of this band to others before.

PhobicsHey! (live)
New band of young Maltese musicians offering a very formidable sound. I really like this song and the band and I hope to hear more from them over the coming years. I picked this from a couple of songs they’ve uploaded to Soundcloud. That online music service is really a treasure trove for this sort of thing.
