HARRIET RILEY and ALEX GARDEN Sonder
A very musical project, making highly literate use of violin/octave violin and vibraphone (with added contrabass) rich in folk elements, non-generic vocabulary, classical technique and Indonesian, Balkan and Arabic dialects - with shades of minimalism, jazz harmony and an predilection for additive rhythms. Itís not earth-shattering but itís rich, soothing, unusual and deeply rooted: proper music that does what it does for its own sake and deeply immersed in melody, harmony and rhythm (an unfashionable but indestructible combination). Quietly assertive and very listenable. Such modest projects we all depend upon to keep the candle burning, so worth your support.
