Hey, this thread was fun, wasn't it? Talk about albums that you're particularly attached to at the moment and why.
Apparently these guys are some of the first electric proponents of a blues genre called "Tishoumaren". It's 'desert blues' put through the filter of Tuareg Music, which is an old North African traditional music genre.
I think the album slaps as it were, and to me personally it's a fresh take on rock, though I can't help but wonder if any of this is old hat to people already familiar with Tuareg Music...
Tradition by Atman, a psychedelic etno-folk genre, if such ever existed. The band describes the sound as "forest music" and that probably would describe the magic they attempt to create in the most illustrative way. If you're in the mood for some Slavic magic with some nice shades of progressive rock and diverse acoustic instrumentation thrown in a mix then this project will become your obsession.
The new Big Wreck album remained in my car for weeks after the release. Love it. Waiting on the new Alter Bridge album. And I picked up William Duvalls solo album but haven't had a chance to hear it all yet.
Absolute zolo classic...the instrumentation is eclectic and colorful, the compositions are energetic and varied and Danny Elfman, walking a fine line between deranged and catchy with his vocals/lyrics, suits the madness perfectly
