Sup Pop BONUS:::::::::::::::::::
by Nick Rallo
Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba – Speak Fula (sub pop) Do you know what a ngoni is? Neither did I until I heard this album. It’s a lute, and Bassekou Kouyate makes you want to pick one up. This album captures his stunning ngoni talents and his ability to rock, Mali-style.
Album Leaf – A Chorus of Storytellers (sub pop) On tour with Sea Wolf in May, these hyper-serious, worldly Californians are still putting out the haunting stuff. I like “There is a Wind” for walking in slow motion.
The Ruby Suns – Fight Softly (sub pop) – Why don’t you have this album? You should because it’s really oddball, like Vampire Weekend had sex with some surreal dream and made a baby band.
Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore – Dear Companion (sub pop) The Coen Brothers would enjoy this album in their new version of True Grit. The album oscillates between jazz-pleasant folk and soaring, McCartney-esque rock.
Retribution Gospel Choir – 2 (sub pop) Low members ‘duded’ out to form a heavy riffing rock opus. Sort of wishes to be the beating heart, directness of Pink Floyd or some 90’s whack off. They sort of succeed doing both.
