The Smoking Trees - Who is the Villain?

Moderator

Image may contain: one or more people, night and crowd

This is one of the coolest albums I've heard all year.

Moderator is an Athens-based producer and makes some incredible downtempo music that leaps across genre boundaries. Lounge, hip-hop, Italian horror film soundtracks, dub, Memphis soul, and even rockabilly can all be found here. They are combined with serious skill and care.

In my top 10 for the year. Seriously good.










HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

Kandle

Image may contain: 2 people, people on stage and concert

Kandle is the solo project of Victoria BC native Kandle Osborne. Her vocals are captivating and sultry. The music is noir-ish and somewhat somber. I've been a fan for a while and this album is a perfect addition to her musical library.

Great music for rainy days.
