Four Picks: 4 Deep Autumn Albums

Today we are diving into autumn with four albums which have nothing in common but the quality (and goosebumps inside).

Karkhana โ€“ Al Azraqayn (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ง Let’s start with especially unusual music from Lebanon. Karkhana, the multinational collective, reinterprets the traditional music of the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Africa. Such a suspension of acoustics is fairly seasoned with electronics and effects. Following the album’s narrative, you can easily rush into the East, where it’s so easy to get lost. Take to the account wild improvisations which throw the listener from ancient times into the noisy space of the future.

Etceteral โ€“ Rhizome (2022)

๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Experimental trio from Slovenia plunges everything that comes to hand into a melting pot. Cheerful baritone saxophone accompanied by bold electronics, nimble drums and visual accompaniment. Free rhythmic patterns interspersed with improvisations that run beyond the boundaries of jazz, rock and other kinds of music familiar to the ear.

The Blackwater Fever โ€“ Temptator! (2022)

๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ While listening to this act, you can catch good old rock ‘n’ roll, soul, grunge, and a later alternative. Indeed, such utterly eclectic mix does sound not artificial, but fresh and natural. Following the route proposed by the group, you will feel both nostalgia and inspiration, and sometimes, delight.

Permagel โ€“ Permagel (2022)

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ The debut work by Catalonian band completes our great four. This work is performed at the intersection of instrumental rock and experimental stuff. Fair volume of post-rock, a pinch of post-metal, and you can get to the sky. Add some dreamy mood, especially in the final track, and the whole thing turns to really pretty music.
