Kent Folk (The Rattlaz : Songs of Peace & Protest) Kent Folk
The Rattlaz : Songs of Peace & Protest
     England is still experiencing hard times and the crow is still well and truly fixed to the cradle. Deportees are still with us in the form of migrant workers ... The voice in all these songs is the voice of compassion and understanding, the voice of hope and determination. We ignore this voice at our peril.
Jim Low (Dancing in the Dust) Jim Low
Dancing in the Dust

     As the title suggests, there is an integral dynamic to this collection of songs. The stimulus for much of the CD came from traveling the dusty roads west of Australia's Great Dividing Range. One thing cannot be denied - the dusty grit of the past is sprinkled, if not poured in some cases, over these songs.
Jay Mankita (Morning Face) Jay Mankita
Morning Face
     Jay Mankita's collection of 10 richly textured, quirky, acoustic songs featuring guitars, vocals, mandolin, cello, and concertina, moving away from the humorous and the political, and more firmly into heart and soul territory.
The Additives (Back In Bridgeport) The Additives
Back In Bridgeport

     The Additives play a refreshing hybrid of indie, folk, and subterranean Bridgeport blues. Drawing on the everyday, from relationships gone wrong to the "Champagne of Beers", their great tunes, smart lyrics, and timeless hooks will leave you singing their praises (quite literally) for days.
