1 - DRUSUNA - KAYTOS KOM - (CD) 
FRIENDLY FOLK


Drusuna is a Pagan Folk Band from Gallaecia (Northern Portugal). The roots of Drusuna project began in 2009 by Sephirus and brother Alvahagal. The initial idea was to create primitive sounds with only organic ethnic musical instruments made from wood, stones, and other natural elements. The main idea was to build something directly from the roots of the earth, because the call of nature was the driving force behind the project. Torano joined the project (2011) introducing wind instruments like bagpipes and whistles. The original compositions were created deep in the forest, away from people, just playing rhythms and melodies and enjoying nature. By 2014 Waili (didgeridoo) and Kluto (guitar) joined in and Drusuna became an official band. After two years of productive rehearsals came the release of their debut album, "Kaytos Kom" (2018). This is an introspective conceptual work that takes a deep journey through ancient time and space; an era where humankind was connected with nature and ancestral roots were strong a pure. Drusuna left the forest and hit the stage in 2016 and received international attention.

9 - MIDNIGHT, THE - THE LEGEND HAS BEGUN - (CD) 
FRIENDLY FOLK


The Midnight were formed in 2003, a Tuscany-based Folk-Medieval-Fantasy band of minstrels. The choice to be called "Midnight" is not accidental: "midnight" is a metaphor not only of a past time, but also a "mysterious elsewhere" the magic hour of the night for excellence, where fairies and elves dance in the woods, the wizards prepare their spells and the witches gather under a large walnut tree. "Minstrels" thus, offering melodies inspired by Celtic, medieval and renaissance sweet ballads but also lively rhythms drawn from popular culture and folk music. All made more attractive from setting and costumes inspired by fantasy culture. The show intends to make reliving, through musical notes, scenery and costumes, the charm and enchantment of the "fantasy literature" a kind of narration between epic and fantastic, magical and mysterious, where narrated events are set in a time and a world imaginary in the "middle land" the linking ring between a permanent medieval, an improbable future and an alternative universe populated by magical creatures.

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Wolf And The Moon 02. Lionheart 03. Mayfly 04. Twilight Of The Vikings 05. Over The Hills (not Far Away) 06. Boudica (the Mists Of Mona) 07. Legend Of The Giants 08. Echo Of Ancient Time (part One) 09. Echo Of Ancient Time (part Two) 10. Thread Of Fate 11. The Well 12. The Dragon Will Never Die

11 - SAHM, SHANDON - SAHM COVERS SAHM - (CD) 
FRIENDLY FOLK


With a retro vibe, the album pays homage to the artists infamous father, Doug Sahm. The album features a selection of Dougs greatest hits from the 60s - 90s delivered with a modern day twist by his son, Shandon, who is accompanied by stellar line-up of musicians. Shandon Sahm embarked on his new solo career of singer-songwriter with his own style of contemporary alt-country and glam folk rock, and in 2018, Shandon packed up his guitar, cat, and belongings and left his home in Austin, Texas (USA) and moved to Amsterdam (Netherlands). After a successful run as drummer for the American rock band, Meat Puppets, Shandon felt it was time to return to his alternative country roots and release a tribute album to his late father, Doug Sahm. During an interview Shandon once said, "I want to turn people on to Dad's music, but I don't feel I'm in his shadow." This sentiment reflects the spirit behind 'Sahm Covers Sahm' which features Doug Sahm hits.

12 - SCHERPENZEEL, TON - VELVET ARMOUR - (CD) 
FRIENDLY FOLK


VELVET ARMOUR, the fifth solo album from Ton Scherpenzeel, is the successor to 'The Lion's Dream' (2013). This eighteen-track album will catapult the listener back in time to the essence of the Medieval Renaissance era. Fans of the Progressive rock band, Kayak, will recognize track ten, 'My Heart Never Changed', as Ton originally released this track on the album, Royal Bed Bouncer (1975). With a perfect blend of Baroque Folk and Progressive Rock ballads, the album offers a little something for everyone. "My musical heart is firmly rooted in folk, renaissance, baroque, and- of course- prog rock music," says Ton. "Although the folky and classical elements have always been present in the music of Kayak, I couldnt do a project like this with Kayak. 'The Lion's Dream and Velvet Armour are almost inseparable from me as a person. That is why I decided to do the vocals myself. I do not really see myself as a singer, but my voice reflects my music in its purest form. Its as close to me as youre gonna get. My music can perhaps best be described as an old soul in a new age. I am also not a purist when it comes to the use of certain instruments- they didnt have a grand piano back in the 1500s but if it sounds right, Ill use it. More often than not it is fiddle, flute, harpsichord, lute, or baroque guitar because they give the music that distinct, timeless atmosphere."

TRACKLISTING: 01. The Rose And Crown 02. River To The Sea 03. Noughts And Crosses 04. Pillars Of Light 05. Secret Garden 06. La Joueuse De Luth 07. Velvet Armour 08. Lily's Lament 09. Mirrors Of Versailles 10. My Heart Never Changed 11. Tears Of Glass 12. Rings Around The Moon 13. Egg Dance 14. Hands Of Time 15. Marigold 16. Tempus Fugit 17. Road To Forever 18. River To The Sea (instrumental)

13 - VERHOEFF, JYOTI - TOUCHES - I SPEAK WITH MY MOUTH SHUT - (CD) 
FRIENDLY FOLK


The music of Jyoti Verhoeff is both intriguing and enchanting, almost cinematic in nature - with its many layers, endless amount of subtleties, and organic structures. Music, balancing on the edge of the known, where nothing is predictable anymore yet everything is recognizable. Each composition is centered around the grand piano. Although all recordings are an acoustic keyed instrument you will be surprised how a bit of preparation of the instruments and some unique microphone settings can change the acoustic sound into a very electronic feel. A lot of experimental room was allowed for distortion of the sound by playing the keys of the grand piano with drumsticks, iron, horsehair, tapping the strings or using metal on the strings for sound effects.Touches is a neo-classical experiment in delicate symbiosis with modern technique. A carefully balanced search with a pure acoustic sound where one note can grow into many worlds.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Humans And Machines 02. Rides 03. Sharing Dreams 04. An Ocean Still To Me 05. At Night We Dance 06. Shards 07. Never To Be Told 08. Blind Glances 09. The Reason Of A Rose 10. Hours Within Hours 11. Virtual Sea 12. Isles Of Hope 13. Who Disturbs The Water
