Throwback Thursday - Katchafire
November 20, 2014

Katchafire's "Best So Far" release was added this week last year. "Best So Far" is a compilation of the band's music spanning 4 albums.



The H-Man had this to say on the Reggae album:

Originally formed as a Bob Marley tribute band, this hard working 7- member New Zealand reggae outfit has developed its own songs to go along with reggae classics. Nice vocals, clean instruments. This cd represents the "best" of their last 4 releases. Top notch reggae grooves.

"Best So Far," released on VP Records, topped the World charts for several weeks, dropping to #2 only a few times. Keep it tuned to KAFM to hear more great Reggae and World music!!!

Music Bureau Recommends - November 19
November 19, 2014

We have SO much new music coming in! Here's what members of the Music Bureau recommend:

Diane (Show: Straigh Ahead Jazz): Al Muirhead, It's About Time (Chronograph Records) - Jazz

The elder statesman of jazz trumpet in Canada, has released his first CD under his own name though he has played with many Canadian greats including Tommy Banks and PJ Perry who play on this CD. It is delightful.

H-Man (Shows: Enjoy the Ride; Divided Sky) The Compact, One At a Time (Choking Chicken) - Rock

3rd cd from the collaboration of Erin Hobson (vocals, guitar) and Steven W. Ross (vocals, bass), whose undeniable musical chemistry produces three very good songs (1,2,6) but becomes inconsistent on the remaining tracks. Edgy and varied musical styles, including jazz improv. Guest drummers provide solid grooves throughout. Best named record company this year!

Ol' Dog (Shows: On the Porch; New to Me, New to You) Clever Blue, Clever Blue (Self Released) - Blues

Tight Blues Band that covers several styles with both leads, male & female, doing a fine job.

These releases and more can be heard ONLY at KAFM! Keep it tuned to 88.1!

The New Basement Tapes -
November 18, 2014

If you haven't heard of the New Basement Tapes, you're in for a treat.  Here's "Kansas City," off the latest album, Lost on the River, out on Electromagnetic/Harvest Records:



The supergroup created by T Bone Burnett consists of Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Elvis Costello, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons). Burnett got his hands on some Bob Dylan lyrics from The Basement Tape sessions, and set to work to record them with some of the best musicians today. The video is from the forthcoming documentary appearing on Showtime November 21st.

Keep it tuned to KAFM to hear more from the New Basement Tapes, and each artist involved!
