Reuben's Thread (Feat. RachaelRachael) - Colour Me Blue Reuben's Thread (Feat. RachaelRachael) - Colour Me Blue
'Atmospheric, dream folk/pop' - Sparkling, layered guitars and sublime, harmonically rich vocals. Sensitive, accomplished, flowing music...

"Colour Me Blue" is the result of a very special collaboration between guitarist/composer Reuben's Thread and London-based singer-songwriter RachaelRachael.

RachaelRachael is an exceptional talent. The subtle beauty of her melodies and the purity of her harmonies are both captivating and masterful.

An intuitive guitarist and composer, Reuben's Thread uses a variety of alternate tunings and electronic effects to colour his work, resulting in unusual chord voicings and otherworldly sounds and textures.

Tribe Of One - Light

"Light" is the amazing follow up to last years release "Ripple" Tribe of One's second cd features more fiddling from outer and inner space by composer and arranger Ian Tothill with some meaty productions.

The cd is a great addition to Tribe of One's output and suggests that there is plenty more to come from this corner of West Yorkshire.

Tribe Of One - Light

Tribe Of One - Ripple Tribe Of One - Ripple

Ripple is the solo project of Ian Tothill, a fiddle player with cajun, country and western swing bands. It is a complete departure from his usual territory. After years of playing other people's music, Ian has come up with a genre busting album which captures personal and universal feelings.

This is an album that has to be heard to be believed. It sounds like fiddle players from all over the world, dub reggae producer Lee Perry, and Four Tet quietly jamming at 4.00 a.m. while the rest of the world sleeps.

Rajan Spolia - Good Fortune

Snake Music Chapter III - Unique instrumental acoustic guitar/tabla duets, influenced by Indian Classical music.

There are certain CDs which you can't let just run while you are doing something else (eating, working at the computer, washing up ... or whatever). They demand high degrees of concentration and receptiveness, which if practised, reward you with and intense and very satisfying musical experience.

Such is the case with the new solo CD by the great Indian / British guitarist Rajan Spolia.

The recording shows an honest directness, leading the listener into new worlds, exploring the possibilities of the acoustic guitar within the framework of Indian music, while extending both into a new uncharted realm.

Spolia's virtuosity is never just for show, if at all he understates at first, showing great maturity and control of his musical domain, only then to unleash a flurry of notes worthy of any guitar hero!

Switch off the tv and computer, sit back and treat yourself to a wonderful musical experience.

(Ian Melrose - guitarist, composer, arranger, producer)
